We are learning a LOT about the new Disney Genie service coming soon to Disney World and Disneyland.
The new service will be built into the My Disney Experience and Disneyland apps and will feature a LOT of new tools for Disney guests. We’re talking forecasted future wait times, a virtual assistant, a personalized itinerary, and more! So, how is it that Disney Genie is going to act as your personal assistant?
One of the biggest features of the FREE Disney Genie service is a personalized itinerary and tip board feature. This feature will help you to seamlessly map out your entire day. To put it as Disney did, “You have all the fun, while Disney Genie does all the work.”
To use the service, you’ll tell Disney Genie about your preferences, whether that be princesses, superheroes, thrill rides, food, or anything else. These interests can be as specific as a must-do attraction or as broad as your interest in Star Wars. Then, Disney Genie uses that information to evaluate thousands of options and build a plan just for YOUR family.
And that plan isn’t set in stone! Disney Genie will continue to update your plan throughout the day to roll with all of the changes happening in the parks. The goal is to create a better, more customized experience for guests.
This itinerary will pair with a personalized tip board that brings you all sorts of info. It will display current AND future wait times, as well as information about virtual queues, dining, mobile order, and more.
For an example of how you’ll use this service, your itinerary will tell you where to start your park day, take into account those forecasted wait times to tell you when you should head to your must-dos, suggest a convenient place and time to mobile order lunch, and update you with realtime suggestions (even the weather forecast!).
If at any point you’re confused about why Disney Genie recommends something, you can easily take a look at why it thinks the plans are a good fit for you!
Yep, you’re getting a full-day itinerary and a tip board built right into your smartphone that keeps you in the loop on attractions status, showtimes, dining availability, and standby wait times — plus it tells you where you should head next!
In a statement about the new system, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro noted, “Disney Genie listens to the preferences that guests share with us to help design their best day and deliver an experience that’s made just for them. Pairing incredible technology with more than 60 years of expertise about how our guests visit the parks, Disney Genie will personalize their Disney day, allowing guests to spend less time planning and waiting and more time doing the things they love.”
