In October 2021, Walt Disney World unveiled the Disney Genie. This provides guests with a free tip board.  Disney Genie+ is a one-day fee add-on where you can access even more attractions with shorter wait times. Each day guests pay to use Genie+.

Finally, the third option is Individual Lightning Lane where guests can purchase return times for select attractions. You can choose to use the standby line instead of purchasing Genie+. In doing so, Disney is not forcing anyone to pay for this feature.

You can make one selection at a time all throughout the day. 40+ attractions are included at Walt Disney World and 15+ attractions will be available at Disneyland. Be sure to read all about Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes in our guide.

  1. I let my AP expire and sold DVC. I will make room for those who want to keep shelling out all this money. My family is not one of them. We have tons of great memories but now it’s just getting ridiculous.
