    When does the Genie+ and Lightning Lane start and what is the cost?

    Hello, Rose! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    I'm so glad that you are interested in the newly announced digital service, Disney Genie! This exciting new feature will personalize your park touring itinerary based on your interests so you can maximize your time in the parks and have a ton of fun! You'll also be able to look up forecasted future wait times for attractions, see upcoming showtimes for a variety of entertainment options, and use the new virtual assistant to get answers to your questions while you are in the parks. Disney Genie is a complimentary feature in the pre-existing Disneyland app and will be available this fall. Be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog in the coming weeks for an official release date. 

    While I love all the innovative tools that will be available in Disney Genie, I am most excited about the new Disney Genie+ service. With Disney Genie+, you'll be able to select the next available time to ride an attraction using the Lightning Lane entrance. You can select an arrival time for one attraction at a time throughout your day. If you used Disney MaxPass in the past, this new service will be quite similar. 

    At the Disneyland Resort, there are over 15 attractions that will offer the Lightning Lane, so you'll be able to save oodles of time. Disney Genie+ will be available for $20 per ticket, per day at the Disneyland Resort. This add-on service will be available when Disney Genie is released to guests this fall, but you will make your Disney Genie+ selections on the day you visit once you have entered either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. 

    Finally, there is yet another option available in Disney Genie to help you save even more time and allow you to ride fan-favorite attractions like Radiator Springs Racers. For an additional purchase, you can schedule an arrival time and use the Lightning Lane for up to two highly-demanded attractions per day. These select attractions will not be available with Disney Genie+. Pricing for individual attraction purchases will vary, so you'll want to check current costs in the Disneyland app on the day you plan to use this feature. 

    Please keep in mind that the traditional standby queues and virtual queues (i.e., Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-man Adventure) will still be available for guests to use after Disney Genie goes live. If you have any other questions about Disney Genie or any other aspects of your upcoming trip, please don't hesitate to stop by planDisney again!
