It seems Disney is listening to Guest feedback. A new upgrade will make it even easier to select your return times!
Built on top of Genie, the Genie+ is a paid feature that offers more convenience and flexibility.
Here is the shortened version: for as low as $15 per person per day at Disney World and as low as $25 per person per day at Disneyland, choose the next available time to arrive at a variety of attractions and experiences using the Lightning Lane entrance.
You may be scratching your head at the “as low as” and that is because Disney recently introduced variable pricing. Now, you cannot predict how much Genie+ will cost for your travel party each day of your trip.
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. Additionally, select character sightings and other entertainment experiences are part of the Genie+ service.
Disney has been making several adjustments and updates to the system lately in an effort to increase Guest satisfaction. Even after a recent lawsuit named Disney in copying personalized itinerary technology, Disney has no plans to slow down.
Recently, Disney made an update that allows Genie+ pricing for the day to be prominently displayed on the My Disney Experience app home screen and inside the tip board. You can read about that HERE.
Coming soon, Guests will be able to modify Lightning Lane selections without having to cancel and rebook their desired return time! Similar to the way the old FastPass+ system allowed you to check out other attractions and other arrival windows, Genie+ will soon make it easier to modify your ride selections.
Similar to FastPass+, Guests will be able to modify Lightning Lane selections without having to cancel and rebook their desired return time!
Do note we are unsure when this change will take effect, but we suspect it will be very soon. This is a huge update that will improve Guest satisfaction at least a little bit. With high pricing and limited return time availability, there is still much work to be done to make this system satisfactory.
What do you think of this change? Are you more inclined to purchase Genie+ knowing it will be easier to modify? Let us know in the comments below and on Facebook.
