We have shared many of the rumors and possibilities surrounding the permanent suspension of FastPass and introduction of a paid system. Overall, these rumors proved to be true as Disney did announce Genie+ in August.

After speculation of training, testing, and official dates, we may be getting closer to an actual announcement regarding the start date of Genie.

Rumored Start Date

Additionally, Disneyland Resort will reportedly be launched a bit later.

As always, until Disney officially confirms any start date treat this as a rumor. This does, however, back up our previous rumor for a launch date during the third week of October. We now just have a precise date.

We will be sure to watch closely for any announcements as the date approaches.
