Genie+ has been around since 2021 and how you use it is CHANGING soon!
In case you missed it, Genie+ has replaced the old FastPass system in Disney World (and the MaxPass system in Disneyland Resort), and it now costs you a fee to purchase daily. Instead of reserving a FastPass lane, guests can now book Lightning Lanes one by one in the My Disney Experience app. And now the way you make those reservations is getting some updates!
Coming soon to Genie+ are some pretty big changes! Up until now, Genie+ users could not modify Lightning Lane selections in the My Disney Experience app without canceling their reservation first, which could get pretty annoying. But soon, guests will be able to modify Lightning Lane reservations WITHOUT having to cancel! This change could make the system a lot more convenient for many people.
Also, guests will be able to change specific members within their party who are attached to their Lightning Lane reservation before submitting any changes! That means if someone in your party decides that Splash Mountain is too scary for them, you should be able to adjust your Lightning Lane reservation and remove them.
This is a bicoastal update coming to both Disney World and Disneyland, so it applies to anyone visiting the parks in the United States. Be aware that Genie+ works somewhat differently between Disney World and Disneyland, and you can read more about that here.
Note that these changes will NOT apply to Individual Lightning Lanes (also known as the pay-per-ride option). Individual Lightning Lane reservations are not refundable or eligible for modification, so make sure you choose the right time slot when you make your reservation.
These changes have not yet taken effect but should roll out soon. Keep following DFB for more Disney World news and updates!
