On October 12, 2021, the My Disney Experience app received a BIG update that included the new Disney Genie system. Disney Genie is free and allows Guests to customize their Disney day or to utilize a Disney Parks tip board.

This is to not be confused with the Disney Genie+ selection that was also available the same day. Genie+ is a one day fee of $15.00 plus tax, where you can access even more selections.

This is essentially a similar system to the Maxpass system that was found in Disneyland in the past, but with a few frustrating differences. Check out the the Lightning Lane frustrations HERE. See which attractions are included in this Lightning Lane access HERE.

In the Pirate Crew we heard a mixed review of Guests that loved, loathed, or were somewhat indifferent to the Genie+ offerings when it debuted. Let’s say you are interested in adding this feature to your Park day. How do get started?

Option #1

So you want to add a little cosmic power to your day at Walt Disney World. At the time of this writing, Guests may purchase Genie+ after midnight the morning of their Theme Park day.

Your first option is to purchase Genie+ from the home screen. On the home screen simply tap on the “My Day” icon.

This will lead you to the next screen where you have an option for “Recommended Activity” or to “Take your Day to the Next Level”. If you select “Let’s Get a Jump on Your Park Day!”, this will lead you through the Tip Board.

This is not necessary to simply purchase Genie+. On this screen simply click on the “Get Disney Genie+ Service” under “Take your Day to the Next Level”.

This will lead you to this screen that shows you the 3 benefits of Genie+ including Lightning Lane Selections, Disney PhotoPass Lenses, and Behind-the-Scenes Audio Tales.

You will see the prompt that this is an added cost of $15 (before tax). Simply click on the button “Get Disney Genie+ Service.”
