We just found out that the Disney Genie program is launching in Disney World on October 19th! This new program through My Disney Experience will include multiple paid service options for guests who would prefer to pay to essentially skip the lines of their favorite rides.
Disney Genie+ costs $15 per ticket, per day in Disney World and it gives guests the ability to make reservations to use the Lightning Lanes (aka what used to be called the FastPass+ lane) for 46 different attractions. Not all rides are included in the Disney Genie+ service, though — some high-demand rides will be part of a separate paid option called Individual Attraction Selection. And, we just learned which rides are included in this pay-per-ride program!
Individual Attraction Selection is a separate, pay-per-ride service, with access to rides that are NOT accessible through Genie+. These are generally the more popular rides, and guests can only pay for 2 of these rides per day.
Here is the FULL list of Disney World rides that qualify for Individual Attraction Selection:
- Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
- Space Mountain
- Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure
- Frozen Ever After
- Avatar Flight of Passage
- Expedition Everest
If you choose to take advantage of this paid service, you can reserve up to 2 qualifying rides per day, and they don’t have to be in the same Disney park as long as you can park hop. Once you make a reservation, you will be given a return time with a window of 1 hour to go on the ride.
Note that you cannot modify your reservations for these rides once you’ve made them, meaning they can’t be changed to a different ride or canceled. If you don’t show up for your reservation, you will not be refunded. But, if the ride goes down during your time, you’ll be refunded if the reservation can’t be rescheduled.
If you don’t want to pay to ride ANY Disney World rides, standby lines and the virtual line for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will still be an option. Remember, Rise of the Resistance is no longer using a virtual line and now has a standby line.
So, if your favorite rides qualify for Individual Attraction Selection, you should ask yourself if paying for these rides individually is worth it to you, or if you would rather just wait in the regular standby line. Stay tuned to DFB for more Disney Genie news!
