Disney Genie launched in Disney World back in October of 2021, and there have been some major changes since then! This new program run through My Disney Experience includes multiple paid service options for guests who would prefer to pay to essentially skip the lines of their favorite rides.
Disney Genie+ cost starts at $15 per ticket, per day in Disney World and it gives guests the ability to make reservations to use the Lightning Lanes (what used to be called the FastPass+ lane) for over 50 different attractions. Not all rides are included in the Disney Genie+ service, though — some high-demand rides are a part of a separate paid option called Individual Attraction Selection. And, we have a full list of all the rides included in this option!
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 MAX.
When Genie+ first launched, there were 2 of these attractions in each park, but that has since changed. Disney has moved some of the attractions that were available as pay-per-ride selections to be included with all of the other rides available through Genie+.
So, you can now make Lightning Lane reservations for rides like Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Frozen Ever After, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Space Mountain, and Expedition Everest without paying for them individually.
Here is the FULL list of Disney World rides that qualify for Individual Attraction Selection as of now:
- Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
- TRON Lightcycle / Run
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 are still available for most rides. Rise of the Resistance is no longer using a virtual line and now has a standby line, but Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind only has a virtual line and the option to pay individually for a Lightning Lane reservation. The same is true for TRON Lightcycle / Run — this ride only has a virtual line and the individual Lightning Lane option.
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!
