    What is Genie + and how much does it cost

    Hi Marianne,
    Welcome to planDisney! Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation falls within the current 10-day forecast, which is a milestone worth celebrating.  Be sure to pack your sunglasses and sunscreen as well as a jacket for the cooler evenings. There's plenty of sunshine headed your way!

    Good news travels fast, Marianne, and it appears you've heard about the new Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ services. These services are designed to maximize the magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation by maximizing your time in the four theme parks.  Disney Genie is a complimentary service in the My Disney Experience Mobile App that uses state-of-the-art technology to create an individualized daily itinerary for your time in the parks. You submit your wishes and Genie goes to work making real-time recommendations that appear on a custom tip board throughout the day.  Easy access to attraction wait times and an interactive map come in handy, especially for first-time visitors. 

    Genie+ is a paid service in the My Disney Experience app that allows you to make Lightning Lane reservations at more than 40 attractions throughout all four theme parks.  A Lightning Lane reservation ensures a limited wait time for even the most popular attractions.  Genie+ can be purchased in the My Disney Experience app beginning at midnight each park day.  The current cost, subject to change, is $15 per person, per day.  After purchase, you can make your first Lightning Lane reservation beginning at 7:00 a.m. Subsequent Lightning Lane reservations can be made throughout the day.  Less time standing in line means more attractions, more food and more fun! 

    On a recent visit, my multigenerational party of six purchased Genie+ for our park days at Magic Kingdom Park, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT.  We were pleased with our ability to experience multiple Lightning Lane attractions at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios. We were not able to take full advantage of the service at EPCOT since we arrived late morning and had a dining reservation for lunch. We decided not to purchase the service at Disney's Animal Kingdom park due to our desire to spend time exploring the various animal experiences and earning Wilderness Explorers badges. In my experience, a Genie+ purchase is ideal for parties looking to spend full days in the parks and experience multiple attractions. 

    I saved one of my three wishes for you, Marianne. I wish you safe travels and a magical time at The World's Most Magical Celebration!

    Have a zip-a-dee-doo-dah day!
