    What is the charge to skip the lines

    Hi Christopher! Welcome to planDisney! It’s great to have you stop by with your question.

    Disney introduced Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane entrances as a way for Guests to bypass the standby queue for many rides and attractions in order to maximize their time at the park. Using this service comes with an added fee that is paid for before you are arriving or on the day of your park visit. Guests will have the opportunity to decide if they find value in this service and if it makes sense to utilize. If your family is anything like mine, you will want to have this available at your fingertips. My daughters are not the most patient children in the world, so long wait times for attractions can turn the day upside down quickly.

    Currently, the cost of Disney Genie+ is $15 plus tax (USD) per ticket per day. Since your visit is only days away, I don’t anticipate this cost changing, but keep in mind that it is subject to do so at any time. If you have purchased multi-day tickets, you can add on Disney Genie+ for your entire length of stay before your arrival. You can do so online via your My Disney Experience account or by calling the Existing Ticket line and speaking to a Cast Member. Otherwise, you can purchase it just on the days you wish to use it by downloading the My Disney Experience App to your mobile device. Once there, select “My Genie Day” and locate the purple bar that reads “Get Disney Genie+ for Today”. 

    Disney Genie+ will give you access to many attractions across all four of the theme parks. You’ll be able to make your first selection starting at 7 AM on your park day. If that selection is within two hours of the official park opening, then you’ll be able to make another selection once you ride the first attraction. If your selection is a popular ride and your return window is not until later in the day, you will be able to make a second selection two hours after park opening. I used this strategy while at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We made riding Slinky Dog Dash a priority and made sure to get the first available time slot that we could get. It ended up being later in the day, but we were still able to utilize the service the rest of the day since our return time was not any time close.

    The Individual Lightning Lane attractions work slightly differently. These attractions are not included in Disney Genie+ and have a separate cost associated with them. Currently, the rides that are only available for Individual Lightning Lane purchases are Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and Avatar Flight of Passage. This is essentially the most popular attraction at each of the four parks. To bypass the wait time on these attractions, you will need to log on to your My Disney Experience App select “Tip Board”. Once here, find the attraction you wish to ride and select the Individual Lightning Lane option. The price to purchase will be listed along with the next available return time. These prices change daily and are different for each of these attractions. 

    Christopher, I hope you have an easy time using Disney Genie+! Have a magical vacation!

    See ya real soon!
