This week at Disney World is unlike most weeks the rest of the year. Beware of high prices (and high crowds) in the parks.

Busy Holiday Week

Christmas may be in full swing across Disney Parks. But, that doesn’t mean that Thanksgiving is forgotten! In fact, Walt Disney World has plenty to offer Guests who visit during Thanksgiving.

There are tons of holiday meals to be enjoyed, snacks to be devoured, and more. Even a few Disney Resorts are offering a Thanksgiving meal to go! Read about that HERE.

However, with this holiday weeks comes two things: high prices and high crowds. Genie+ is at one of the highest price points we have ever seen. And, crowds will be insane as well.

Genie+ moved to variable pricing late last year. This means instead of a fixed $20/person/day when first introduced, season and crowds now dictate how much you pay.

This week kicks off the busy Thanksgiving week, and Genie+ pricing proves it. First, if you are visiting multiple parks (park hopping) today, you will pay $35/person for Genie+.

From there, Magic Kingdom also costs $35 and Hollywood Studios costs $32. As expected, Epcot ($28) and Animal Kingdom ($25) are the cheapest parks. There are plenty of ways to get around buying Genie+ for these two parks so it’s not always the best use of money.
