For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

Disney has set a new price that we have never seen before for Genie+.

Built on top of Genie, Genie+ is a paid feature that offers more convenience and flexibility. Here is the shortened version: for $15+ per person per day at Disney World and $20+ 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 can choose to use the standby line instead of purchasing Genie+. In doing so, Disney is not forcing you to pay for this feature. You can make one selection at a time all throughout the day. 40+ attractions are included at Walt Disney World and 15+ attractions are available at Disneyland.

When Genie+ first debuted, pricing was set at $15 at Disney World. However, last fall Disney introduced variable 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.

Depending on the season and anticipated crowd levels, we have seen pricing as high as $35/person/day! This is double (and then some) the price of Genie+ when it first debuted.

However, this week we see something we have not seen before. Yesterday, June 6 the price was $24. Today it is $23. Those prices are a bit peculiar, but we are happy to see they are on the lower end of the Genie+ pricing spectrum.

Are there summer crowds?

Genie+ pricing is typically a great indicator of crowd level. The higher the price, the more people there are in the parks. This summer is already proving to be a slow one. Overall, wait times are lower than anticipated. Plus, Disney released a summer ticket offer along with the resort discount.

If you have a summer trip planned, be prepared for crowds (just in case), but you may be surprised!

Are you at Disney now? What are the crowds like? What do you think of this new price? Let us know in the comments below and pass this post along to someone who is visiting this summer.

At Disney now, for next 2 weeks, did both smugglers run and rise . of resistance last night, pary of six. Entered line for smugglers run at 7.15pm. By 9.01 had done both rides just by standby.

Me and my family went to Disney World, and the app glitched and said we no longer had Genie Plus. We were so confused we didn’t wanna waste our trip trying to fix this, so we just went without it. Worst experience I have ever gone through during a Disney trip.

We live in Orlando and visit Disney multiple days per week. The easiest way to check crowd levels is to pattern wait times for non premier attractions. E.g., if Pirates and Haunted M. are longer than a 10-15 min wait, crowds are medium. If greater than 30 stay home.

Was here the past few days. Busy but lines not as bad as one would expect during the summer. Still early though.

I love it how when prices increase, the only explanation journalist have is greed. They never consider supply and demand. Dynamic pricing is an amazing way to deal with demand, whether it's low or high.

I mentioned supply and demand when I talked about summer discounts and crowds.
