Are you wondering how high Genie+ prices will go? Check out today’s entirely new price to see how it compares.

Variable Pricing

Along with an incredible list of price increases recently, one of the most unwelcome Disney announcements was that Genie+ moved from a fixed to variable price each day. Since its launch in 2021, Disney World’s Genie+ cost $15 and Disneyland’s version cost $20 per person (excluding tax). Now, we’ve seen pricing at $15-$22 at Disney World and $25 at Disneyland.

With date-based theme park ticket pricing and Disney’s announcement earlier this year that Guests could no longer purchase Genie+ in advance, we weren’t totally surprised when Disney announced this change. Disney saw a way to increase revenue during peak crowd levels on this service.

Did you know you may be actually paying more for Genie+ than other people on the same day?

Prices May Increase Even More

In Disney’s announcement, they hinted that the $15-$22 price was for the month of October. They didn’t mention pricing going forward. That means that busy holiday crowds later this month and December could pay even more to use Genie+ each day. It will be interesting to see how high it gets.

Most people will pay the extra money to enjoy rides rather than waiting most of the day in lines for their favorite attractions. After all, it’s already so crowded, and Genie+ is one way to avoid the holiday crowd chaos.

  1. Disney has priced itself out of acceptability ! Everything’s so complicated now and not worth hours in line ! The ambiance has been totally destroyed . Won’t waste my time and money!

  2. Just at Disney 4 weeks ago. Paid for Genie plus and paid $22 per person per day, could only get one ride the kids wanted at 7 am sign up and all other rides were booked for day when we went for second ride. Bought it 3 days total, only got 3 rides in a 14 hour day at magic kingdom and less at Epcot, which 50 % of people intoxicated from wine festival. Was a total rip, you cannot get rides you want even after you pay for genie plus. The cost was outrageous and falsely presented to get rides with less lines. Also waited in lines up to 3 hours with young kids, a nightmare. Good bye Disney, never again for us, Walt Disney has to be crying how you have made it all about money and the magic is gone!!

  3. I’m going to a Disney World, probably for the last time. I would rather wait in long lines than to pay extra for Genie+ or Lighteninglane. Walt must be turning over in his grave. This is not progress it is greed.

  4. Same for me yesterday at Hollywood studios.Studios.. paid $46 for 2 people got only 2 rides, everything else was unavailable. Total Ripoff

  5. Spent $75 for 3 people today at MK and only
    Got pirates at 12pm. By the time we could rebook everything was gone for the day. What a waste of money. This will be our last Disney trip for a while. It’s far too much money now for nothing.

    • Balance the cost & time saved to decide if it’s worth it for you. I wish it was still free, but usually buy it to avoid spending my day waiting in long lines.

  6. I paid a total of $46 a day change for My son and I today at Hollywood Studios and was only able to get 2 reserve times all day it was do busy. Not worth it at all. I feel like I was just got Robbed for almost $50 by disney

  7. The elimination of the Fastpass system was a prime example of fixing something that was not broken. Next came the proliferation of less expensive APs for Florida residents, who did not have to plan ahead, purchase food on property or pay for their accommodations. This assured overcrowded parks with “entitlement” baggage. Now, Disney has eliminated its relationship with RCI in favor of its less well-known competitor, Intervals international. Topping it all off is the growing recognition that Disney Vacation Club is the most overpriced timeshare option, and that it removes benefits from participants in its otherwise reasonable resale stream. Speaking of stream, Disney+ is the least imaginative and productive of the streaming services, relying most heavily on its library of costly acquisitions as opposed to origination. Those purchased studios and franchises are dependent on the film and theater industries, which are way past their prime.

    Lots of Boardroom mistakes being shrugged off in favor of further reductions in staffing, which has still not returned to pre-pandemic levels in the face of “overcrowded parks” complaints. I have seen no indication there is any intention of “fixing” any of these problems. I now see my Annual Pass, since I live in Michigan, as a liability rather than an asset.

  8. Just returned from WDW Genie+ and lightninglane is not worth it, since the elimination of fast passes its NOT WORTH IT, go to universal instead, never going back to WDW unless major changes are made.
