Genie dropped today! How low will it go?
Whether you are an occasional Disney traveler or a diehard Disney Parks fan, you have probably heard by now that the paid Genie+ service has replaced the popular FREE FastPass+ system.
This is paid service that allows Guests to reserve a Lightning Lane for many attractions around the parks. For a full guide to purchasing Genie+ head over here.
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-$22 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.
Over the Thanksgiving holiday, we saw Disney Genie+ prices rise to a whopping $29. After the crowds thinned out, the price for Disney Genie+ decreased as well.
Prices are Dropping
While prices soared once again during Disney’s peak season for the days leading up to and following Christmas, we are now seeing a drop. This drop occurred despite the fact that Disney is pretty crowded for runDisney Marathon weekend.
Today, Genie+ pricing is $17 per person. This is the lowest it has been since December 16 and very close to the original price of $15.
Genie+ dropped to $17 today.
Even at $17, it is still a hefty expense, especially for larger parties. However, it is nice to see it decline despite it being a relatively busy weekend.
It is likely we will see another spike for the upcoming Martin Luther King Jr Weekend. The big question is whether there will ever come a point when Genie drops below that $15 price point.
