    Do they charge tax on the Genie + and Individual Lightning Lane prices?

    Hi Lori, welcome to planDisney!

    Budgeting is an important part of the Walt Disney World Resort planning process. My son learned about tax the hard way when trying to purchase a $49.99 item with a $50 gift card recently. Let's get specific about how you can spend your Disney dollars on Lightning Lanes this summer and limit the surprises to pixie-dusted character experiences and unbelievably thrilling attractions like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

    Disney Genie+ service grants Guests access to Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions throughout the theme parks. You can purchase Disney Genie+ service via the Tip Board of the My Disney Experience mobile app anytime after midnight each park day (three small lines at the bottom right of the app's home page --> Tip Board). The per-person cost of Disney Genie+ service fluctuates and will be shown in your Tip Board Banner each day. The price listed does not include sales tax. Today, June 11, 2023, for example, the cost of Disney Genie+ service is $21 per Guest. Once I confirm a party of one and continue to checkout, the total price of Disney Genie+ service, with sales tax, is $22.37. To reiterate, this price is subject to change each day. Similarly, the list price for Individual Lightning Lanes does not include sales tax, which is added when you continue to checkout.

    I hope this information helps maximize the magic in your Disney dollars, Lori. Please reach out to planDisney with any other trip-planning questions.
