Disney has some breaking news! Four paid Individual Lightning Lane Attractions are making a temporary shift to Genie+.
Individual Lightning Lane vs. Genie+
Recently, Walt Disney World introduced Lightning Lanes to replace to old Fastpass+ system. Lightning Lanes can be accessed through both Genie+ and Disney’s paid Individual Lightning Lane Selection system.
Now, for $15 per person per day at Disney World and $20 per person per day at Disneyland, guests choose the next available time to arrive at a variety of attractions and experiences. Look for the Lightning Lane entrance to use this feature. To find out if Genie+ is worth it, check out Donna’s article HERE.
Individual Lightning Lane Selections are ride experiences that can be purchased a la carte for headliner attractions. For example, Disney World Guests can pay $11 per person to ride Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. Read more about pricing here.
A Shift from Individual Lightning Lane Selection to Genie+
However, today Disney made a major announcement! Four attractions are temporarily shifting from ILLS to Genie+ for a limited time.
According to Walt Disney World’s website, starting very soon, guests can use Genie+ to experience Expedition Everest-Legend of the Forbidden Mountain (Animal Kingdom), Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway (Disney’s Hollywood Studios), Space Mountain (Magic Kingdom), and Frozen Ever After (Epcot).
This limited time shift begins on December 19, 2021. It currently runs through January 3, 2022. At that time the four attractions will presumably return to the Individual Lightning Lane Selection offerings and vanish from Genie+.
The assumption is that the change is to help accommodate Disney’s busy holiday season. However, time will tell if the trend continues for other peak crowd times.
From December 19-January 3, guests can use Genie+ to access Expedition Everest-Legend of the Forbidden Mountain (Animal Kingdom), Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway (Disney’s Hollywood Studios), Space Mountain (Magic Kingdom), and Frozen Ever After (Epcot).
