Walt Disney World introduced the Disney Genie+ back in October 2021. This is a one-day fee add-on where you can access even more attractions with shorter wait times. The price of Disney Genie+ varies daily and is subject to availability.

other posts expressing similar concerns to mine... There are 2 number 1 issues!! first, the amount of time it requires you to have your phone out... second, that you can't purchase it ahead of time and pick times for the rides you want so you can pre-plan at least part of your day.. the lack of prepay also means you can't sleep in and enjoy any days of your trip.

I Gree with Sue McCabe. I was horrified at how much I had to use my phone for even basic rides......and everything I selected something to put on my tip board.....even if I didn't need the Genie I ended up buying g a genie. Much preferred fast pass. We found ourselves either trapped at a park cause the rides we wanted you couldn't get until 5 but couldn't hop to another park until 2.

What about passholders who already have Photo Pass downloads? How does this help them?

Hate Genie+!!! Go back to fast passes even at the $15. Hate living on my phone while on vacation. You don’t spend your time and attention with family as on the phone all the time. I’d rather pick pictures I want and have my day planned. Hate getting up at 7am to purchase. Takes the enjoyment from the parks and we have cut our trips because of Genie+, terrible crowding in the parks and all the higher costs for tickets, food, etc. give me the good old Disney!

So if they’re giving us the photo pass downloads from attractions if we purchase Genie +, shouldn’t they lower the cost of Memory Maker?
