For the first time in forever, Disney Genie+ sold out. How would this affect your trip?
This fall we saw an incredible list of recent price increases, and one of the most unwelcome was when Genie+ moved from 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 (plus any applicable tax). However, guests have since seen pricing anywhere from $15-$29 at Disney World and $25 at Disneyland with this new pricing.
With date-based theme park ticket pricing and Disney’s announcement that Guests could no longer purchase Genie+ in advance, variable pricing came as little surprise. Disney saw a way to increase revenue during peak crowd levels on this service and capitalized on it.
Many question if this add-on service is worth the price. Check out our honest review HERE. This service has never sold out, but there is a first time for everything.
As we start the week heading into Christmas, Walt Disney World and Disneyland are growing quite busy. This increase in guests also means an increase in Disney Genie+ pricing.
Until this point, the Disney Genie+ service has been available for purchase for all guests, with no limit. This of course led many to question how useful it may be if so many people could purchase to make ride selections.

This came as quite a shock to many guests visiting Disneyland as big holiday crowds overtook the park. Disney has not shared the capacity level for Disney Genie+, and this is the first time it has completely sold out since it was introduced in 2021.
