It’s here and regardless of how many fans feel about it, there’s no denying that Disney’s Genie app is here to stay. 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 what you need to know.
Here’s What You Need To Know About Your First Disney Genie Plus Purchase
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.
Some of the features that launched this week include:
- Your very own clipboard: Now this is a feature we already like. Users can order food, make dining reservations, check into a restaurant, request to join a virtual queue. For those who purchase the Disney Genie+ service, book arrival times for new Lightning Lane entrances at select experiences.
- Recommendations made just for you: Recommendations can be swapped out and new suggestions will appear throughout the day. Users will receive attraction and dining recommendations inspired by the interests selected for the day. For example, it will display what times to go to an experience and an idea of the forecasted wait.
- A schedule just for you: In the My Day tab will reportedly be Disney Genie recommendations and any plans made, including dining reservations, and Disney Resort hotel reservations.
While Disney Genie itself is a complimentary service, Disney Genie+ costs $15 per ticket per day and it allows guests to go through ‘Lightning Lane’ entrances at over 40 attractions and experiences throughout the four Walt Disney World parks.
Disney says the following rides are available for the à la carte option: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and Frozen Ever After at Epcot, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disney Hollywood Studios, and Avatar Flight of Passage and Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
