Looking for something?


  1. “or at 7AM on the day of your visit if you are staying at a Disney World hotel.”

    Recently (https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2021/07/10/full-list-of-eligible-hotels-for-disney-worlds-early-theme-park-entry/), they’ve said certain hotels, like the B Resort & Spa Lake Buena Vista, DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Orlando Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista, etc. are included in the Early Morning Hours.

    Have they said if these hotels also be included for the 7AM booking in Genie+?

  2. There is no reason to go to the Disney parks for vacation unless you are very wealthy or unless you want to stand in lines the entire day. There are still no shows, no parades, and no entertainment. The cost of a Disney vacation has been increased to where the average family cannot afford a Disney vacation. The average cost of a WDW vacation of seven days is around $15,000 dollars and you can no longer even plan a Disney vacation in advance.

    The Disney Magic is gone.

  3. Ted, I don’t see an official page with a list of included hotels, so I can’t be 100% sure. My understanding is that Swan and Dolphin guests and Shades of Green guests will be included, but we don’t know about the Disney Springs Area Resorts to my knowledge. When we know for sure, we’ll add the info to our Genie+ page.

  4. Thank you DFB Sarah. Our trip is pretty far out still (Nov 2022) but I really appreciate you guys keeping up with all the news.

  5. i would like to see a list of deluxe hotels since they are supposed to be the ones foe early entry and the late entry, an not planning to go until early 23

  6. What about people who don’t have SMART phones or IPADS? I’m an elderly Vacation Club Member who only uses a flip phone. What are we supposed to do?

  7. Has Disney dropped any more hints about how soon Genie+ may be available. We are booked the week of Thanksgiving and I’d love to use the new app!

  8. Debby, so far no update on the launch. We’ll report as soon as Disney shares the info!

  9. Lucretia, it’s possible to go to Disney World and enjoy your day without a smartphone. When it comes to Disney Genie, it means you won’t have access to those planning tips and the personalized itinerary, but you can plan your day just as you would have in the past — using Standby lines, touring in a way that works for you, utilizing the Park maps and Times Guides, and asking friendly Cast Members for assistance when you need it. You will also find wait time screens in the Parks that might help with planning onsite as well.

  10. Susan, all Disney Resort guests can take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry, but on Deluxe and Deluxe Villa guests can use Extended Evening Hours. Deluxe Resorts include Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Contemporary, Beach Club, Yacht Club, BoardWalk Inn, Animal Kingdom Lodge, and Wilderness Lodge.
