Without any advance notice, people wanting to purchase Genie+ found an unpleasant surprise. Take a look and see how much it will cost now!
If you’re on vacation this week at Disney, you’ve probably gotten surprised by more than one price increase. Disney World is expensive, there is no sugar coating that. Recently, we reported price increases for the following:
- Star Wars souvenir
- Custom light sabers
- Signature dining at Magic Kingdom
- Variable pricing on Genie+ at Disney World
- Theme Park tickets
- Food and drinks
- Character Meals
- Refillable mugs
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+. Many guests were upset to learn that the free Fastpass system was discontinued.
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.
Depending on when you’re visiting Disney World, you may end up paying more for Genie+. Now, prices range from $15 to $22 per person per day plus tax. Pricing is based on how busy Disney predicts crowds will be in the future. Not only that, but we also announced a price increase for Disneyland’s Genie+ service HERE.
Highest Price Ever
A few days ago was the first day that prices went up. At that time, Genie+ cost $20 per person plus tax. Considering some people buy Genie+ every day of their trip, this can add up quickly.
However, today it’s the highest price ever! When buying Genie+ today, it will set you back $22 per person plus tax!
Genie+ cost $22 per person plus tax today!
Not only that, but since Rise of the Resistance lightning lane cost the same as Genie+, it will also cost you $22 per person. However, at one point yesterday Rise had a 7-hour wait!! So, it may be worth it if Rise is a top priority.
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.
