    Will the Genie, and passes thru it, be up and running by 12/16/21? I’ve heard by this fall, but don’t see the app available yet.

    Hello Jody! I’m so excited to hear that you’re visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the year! The Disney Parks and resort hotels are extra beautiful at Christmastime!

    The question on your mind is the same question on everyone’s mind! When will Disney Genie Service “come out of the lamp?” What you’re hearing is correct. The word on Main Street, U.S.A. (and throughout the Disney Parks) is that Disney Genie will begin “this fall.” We also know that it will begin as part of The World’s Most Magical Celebration which will officially kick off on October 1, 2021. So, while we don’t have an exact date, I would think that it’s likely that Disney Genie will be available by the time you arrive in mid-December! However, I encourage you to check the Walt Disney World Resort website daily. You should also look at the Disney Parks Blog! Both of these sites are the most reliable source of information for the latest updates regarding the Disney Parks! Also, keep opening your My Disney Experience app. You never know when Disney Genie might just magically appear!

    Jody, have a great time during your visit! It is going to be a great time to visit!
