The wait is over. Walt Disney World is launching their much anticipated (or maybe even dreaded) Genie app on October 19th. The service, which was first announced back in 2019, will be free and is built right into the My Disney Experience mobile app. It will offer many of the features already available in the app, such as wait times, mobile ordering, park hours, etc. Here’s everything you need to know.
Walt Disney World Launching Disney Genie On October 19th: Here’s What You Need To Know
The Genie app is designed to help “maximize your park time, so you can have more fun,” according to the company. In other words, it wants to help you avoid all of the long lines at the theme parks but at the same time, is asking you to pay a little extra for it. The FastPass+ replacement will cost $15 per person per day at Disney World.
“From specific attractions, foodie experiences and entertainment, to general interests like Disney princesses, villains, Pixar, Star Wars, thrill rides and more — just tell Disney Genie what you want to do and it will do the planning for you,” Disney said in a blog post back in August.
The flat fee will give guests access to Lightning Lanes at more than 40 attractions across Disney World four theme parks, including Big Thunder Mountain, Haunted Mansion and Jungle Cruise at Magic Kingdom; Mission Space, Spaceship Earth and Test Track at Epcot; Slinky Dog Dash, Rock n’ Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios; and Dinosaur, Kilimanjaro Safaris and Na’vi River Journey at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
In addition, there will be an optional, paid add-on to the standard Disney Genie service, called Genie+, that will enable Disney theme park visitors to skip the standby lines at popular attractions.
