There are a few ways to predict if Walt Disney World will be busy when you hope to visit. One early predictor is ticket pricing. Walt Disney World introduced variable ticket pricing back in December 2022. This variable pricing will rise for peak tourist times and lower when the parks are less busy.

You can check out an overview of this variable ticket pricing HERE. Character Locator also offers a great crowd calendar to help choose the best dates for your next Walt Disney World vacation.

Finally, there is one final way to see if it will be a busy day at Walt Disney World, and that is the price of Disney Genie+. Disney introduced variable pricing for Disney Genie+ and again the price increases as the crowds increase as well.

The Christmas and New Year holiday celebrations brought high crowds along with extremely high prices for Disney Genie+. Despite these high prices Disney Genie+ sold out multiple days in a row.

After the holidays, the price for Disney Genie+ lowered and was a bit more reasonably priced for many families. In the last several weeks, the highest price for Disney Genie+ for Magic Kingdom or for Multiple Parks was around $23 to $25.

It now appears that $23 is the new base price for Disney Genie+. Just for reference, when it first debuted in 2021 it was offered at $15 every day.

Today, February 9th, the price is now $29 for Magic Kingdom or the Multiple Park option, $18 for Disney’s Animal Kingdom, $26 for Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and $21 for EPCOT.

Today, Disney Genie+ increased in price for the first time in several weeks.

This weekend will be a busier one at Walt Disney World. Find out if Disney Genie+ is a great option for your family HERE.
