Still missing free FastPasses? We are too. Check out the current price for Disney Genie+ at Disney World today.
Last fall we saw an incredible list of recent price increases and one of the most unwelcome was when Genie+ moved from fixed to variable prices 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.
When crowd levels increase for holidays and school breaks, the need for Disney Genie+ increases to skip attraction lines. Now, the price for Disney Genie+ also increases on these dates.
Previously the highest price for Disney Genie+ at Walt Disney World was $29 per person. Disney has added an extra feature: guests purchasing Disney Genie+ can also enjoy free attraction photos for the day. This benefit made many feel that the price for Disney Genie+ may be a better value.
During high spring break times this year, Disney Genie+ hit the highest price point to date at $35 per person per day. This caused sticker shock for many, but even with this high price point, this service was sold out in record time for several days in a row.
We are happy to report that the price for Genie+ today is now back down to $15 per person. It is amazing that before many people found $15 too high for a once FREE service (FastPass). Now it seems like a bargain at $15 when we saw it soar to $35 just a couple of weeks ago.
After the massive crowds from spring break left the parks, the price for Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes also went down in price. For over a week, the lowest price for Disney Genie+ was stuck at $20. Many guests wondered if this could be the new baseline price.
We are happy to report that the price for Genie+ today is now back down to $15 per person.

No big deal. People complain about everything at Disney. Higher price so less people buy-in and shorter line. I wish they would go to just one regular line like the old days.
I agree that’s why I literally only go to epcot for the food and wine after party and haven’t been to any other park in like 8 years. They’ve lost the magic and added stress. Universal has it figured out. No one wants to be on an app planning months in advance then sun up to sundown evert day of vacation smh
Yeah it down because crowds are down. When summer crowds arrive prices will soar. They need to make it where you can at least make your genie plus reservations the day before you get there and for the whole week! Im really bummed about taking my kids for graduation this summer. Who wants to be up at midnight and 7 am and then checking their phones all day! So ridiculous! Universal has a much better system. Ride unlimited rides and scan your id at each ride. Soooo easy and relaxing. This will be our last trip until my husband retires. Universal it will be from now on! Also, why is there only ONE individual lightening lane in each park??? I should be able to buy as many as I want AND ride as many times as I want on Genie Plus if I am paying for it!!
