There is the free Genie, which helps you plan your day in the parks, and there is also Genie+, which costs $15 per day, per person and has replaced the FastPass+ system in Disney World. There are also individual rides that you can pay to skip the line of using the Lightning Lane (old FastPass+ lane). These include 2 high-demand rides in each park and they vary in price, which can also change based on demand. These rides can also sell out of their Lightning Lane passes for the day, which has already happened to one ride in Disney World today!
Well, the day has finally arrived — Disney Genie has officially launched at Disney World.
And we’re still learning the ins and outs of using the service which helps guests figure out what their priorities are and plan their days at the parks. Guests can buy Genie+, which allows you to skip the line at lots of Disney World attractions, or you can also pay an extra fee for select rides through Individual Attraction Selection. You’ll find all these features on the My Disney Experience app.
With Genie+, the free Disney Genie system, and Individual Attraction Selection, there’s a lot to learn these days and that can be a hefty task. Is it worth it to navigate the complicated waters of the new tech? Well, today we challenged ourselves to see how many rides we could do in one day using Genie+ and Individual Attraction Selection (pay-per-ride) to find the answer to that question!
While the Disney Genie planning service is free, guests do have the option to purchase Genie+ and/or Individual Attraction Selections. These paid services grant guests the ability to select return times to access the Lightning Lanes (or what used to be FastPass+ lanes) of different rides. But, just how long did we actually wait for rides using these new paid FastPass+ replacement services?
It’s here, y’all — the Disney Genie has arrived in Disney World.
That means that you can now get custom itineraries and recommendations for park attractions with the free Genie (on the My Disney Experience app), and you can pay to skip the lines using Genie+ and Individual Attraction Selections (Pay-Per-Ride). We’ve already taken a look at how to use these features and some unexpected bumps we hit along the way. Now we’re explaining how rider swap works with the new Genie.
Now that Genie+ and Individual Attraction Selection (Pay-Per-Ride) have launched in Disney World, there are more ways than ever to get on attractions.
You can use the standby line, or you can pay for Genie+ to skip the lines on certain attractions, or you can pay a separate fee for the most popular attractions to skip the lines there. But one more option is still available in the Disney World parks!
Genie is the new planning tool that is available through My Disney Experience. It also includes Genie+ and Individual Attraction Selections, which have replaced FastPass+ in the parks and cost money. We already knew about the cost of Genie+ and select Individual Attractions, but we discovered an unexpected cost today when purchasing these features through Genie.
Beginning October 19th, guests can use the complimentary new Disney Genie feature on the My Disney Experience app. You can also pay $15 a day to get Genie+ (the FastPass replacement), which allows you to make reservations at some attractions to skip the line. For the most popular attractions in each park, you can pay a separate fee to skip the lines there (these are not included in Genie+). But some people will get to try the new Genie+ system for FREE on October 19th — find out if you qualify!
The service will have things like a new system replacing FastPass+, personal assistant features, and customized itineraries. Disney Genie could have a huge impact on your trip to Disney World, so before it officially goes live, let’s take a closer look at everything we know about this service and all the details Disney has shared so far.
