Love it or hate it, Genie+ isn’t going away. Only now, guests at this Disney theme park will be paying more to go to the front of the line.
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.
Using Genie+ at Disneyland is a bit different. First, the number of attractions is significantly less. However, it includes PhotoPass photos whereas Genie+ at Disney World does not. So that kind of evens out the playing field, so to speak. Recently, we shared an update to Disneyland’s Genie+ service HERE.
Previously, guests paid $15 per person per day at Disney World and $20 per person per day at Disneyland. After purchasing, guests choose the next available time to arrive at a variety of attractions and experiences using the Lightning Lane entrance.
Now, Disneyland guests pay $5 extra per person per day! Do you think Disney World will have an increase also?
Disneyland’s Genie+ now costs $25 per person per day!
What do you think of this price increase? Will this use it on your next Disney trip? Do you enjoy the new Disney Genie+ system? What improvement do you think should be made? Please share your thoughts with us on our Facebook Page.
