One of the most difficult parts about planning a Disney World vacation might be learning how to use the Genie+ system. Genie+ is the new way to skip the lines in Disney World, but it has a lot of rules and nuances that make it very tricky to master. However, a new change might make using Genie+ just a little bit EASIER!

If you’re all about skipping those (sometimes) long standby lines, there’s a Disney World update you need to know about.
Disney Genie+ is the paid system that replaced FastPass+ in Disney World. Over the last several months, since Genie+’s debut, we’ve seen a number of changes made to the system including the official recognition of the 120-minute rule, changes as to what rides are available through the service, and more. And now another change is on its way!
There’s a bit of a learning curve when it comes to Genie+ given its different format and specific rules. With that learning curve can come a LOT of mistakes. If you don’t come in fully prepared, you could make some of these big Genie+ mistakes while you’re in the park and they could cost you precious time or cause some big frustrations. Today we’re breaking down the Genie+ mistakes EVERYONE makes and how to avoid them so your next trip can be the best one yet!

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind has officially opened in Disney World.
The brand new attraction features all kinds of easter eggs, an epic soundtrack, and some of your favorite Guardians of the Galaxy characters, of course! We’ve shared a full look at the ride (with both spoiler-filled and spoiler-free reviews), but now that the ride has officially opened we’ve got to talk about HOW to get on it.
The system has been controversial since it was announced. Not only is it a paid replacement for something that was once free, but the system is can be confusing and difficult for some Disney guests to navigate. Consider growing wait times and crowd levels, and it can feel a bit like Genie+ is a mandatory up charge now. So, we looked into it to find out if Genie+ is truly NECESSARY now.
