We’ve been in the parks trying out both the free Genie and paid Genie+ and although all was well at first, we learned pretty quickly that things were going downhill. Check out what we’ve experienced so far today all before noon!
We got a sudden surprise earlier this week when the announcement was made that Disney Genie and Genie+ would launch in just two days at the Disneyland Resort! The complimentary planning tool, along with its paid counterpart that officially replaces FastPass+, was rolled out in Disney World back in October.
Since then, we’ve learned all of the ins and outs of both of these new programs, including how to use the free version to its full potential and which rides you should book first! Let’s see what Disney Genie and Genie+ are like in Disneyland, what the major differences are, and any NEW tips we may have learned along the way!
Disney Genie launched in Disney World a few months ago and now the service has made it to Disneyland Resort. The new system offers free services that help you plan your day and paid services that let you skip the standby lines for popular attractions (Genie+).
The price of Genie+ includes Lightning Lane access for many of the rides at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure, but there are a few Individual Attraction Selections that are priced separately. Now, we know just how much you’ll pay to skip the lines at these rides!
Disney Genie recently launched in Walt Disney World, with free services that help you plan your day, as well as paid services that let you skip the standby lines for popular attractions.
It rolled out first at Disney World, but we now have a DATE for when Genie will launch at Disneyland Resort!
That’s where Mobile Merchandise Checkout can help! With this mobile option, you can pay for all of your items and then quickly visit a Mobile Checkout desk before quickly and easily going on your way. So far, the system has only been tested in select stores, but soon you’ll be able to SKIP the long checkout lines at more spots!
Disney Genie+ will cost guests $15 per ticket, per day in Disney World ($20 per ticket, per day in Disneyland Resort when it arrives later on) and will allow guests to skip the long waits for select attractions by using the Lightning Lanes. But, if you’re used to using Disney’s FastPass+ system, there are some differences with Genie+ that may surprise you!
Disney recently announced a new planning program called Disney Genie.
The program will be part of the My Disney Experience App and have features like a personalized itinerary, forecasted wait times, and even a virtual assistant. There is also a paid version, Disney Genie+, that is replacing the FastPass+ system at the parks. In addition, you will also be able to pay for individual rides in high demand that you want to skip the line for. And, we finally know the exact day that Disney Genie is launching in Disney World!
Through these apps, you can see wait times, check out park maps, secure boarding groups for rides, and so much more. One of the best features is the ability to Mobile Order your food, and now, even more locations are getting added to the list!
Well, August was a BIG month when it comes to Disney news.
We’re back with a check-in on the most unexpected/vacation-altering news that happened in Disney World last month and, well, this one’s a doozy. Are you sitting down? Comfy? HYDRATED? We ask because this list of unexpected news is pretty much dissertation length. Don’t worry though, we’re here to guide ya through it.
We’re having a TIME learning about the upcoming Disney Genie service.
The new service is coming this fall to the Disneyland App and My Disney Experience and will be a whole new tool for Disney guests to use when planning their vacations. We’ve looked into the FastPass replacement, Genie+, the personalized itinerary, and more, but here are the FIVE most MIND-BLOWING features.
