    how much does genie plus cost? is it one starting fee to use or do you pay for each ride you book?

    Nyla,

    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    The per-guest cost for the Disney Genie+ service can vary day-by-day, dependent upon demand. To know the price, you will want to look at your My Disney Experience App that day (starting as early as 12:01 am) to find out the current rate. When you opt to add the Disney Genie+ option to your day, you can use the Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane entrances for a reduced wait time all day long. You do not have to continue to purchase the Genie+ access each time. It even continues to work at the next park you visit if you are park hopping. With the program, you can choose the next available boarding time at any of the 40 attractions currently listed across the four parks. You book that next magical experience and then get to enjoy some other activities in the park until your arrival time comes due. All guests, whether they are Disney Resort Hotel guests or not, can purchase the Genie+ program through their My Disney Experience App and then book their first attraction at 7 am that same day.

    What you might be thinking of when you ask if you pay for each attraction individually is the parallel, but separate Individual Lightning Lane program. With this program, you will find typically 1 or 2 of the more popular attractions at each of the given parks where you can pay for an arrival window time. You do pay for these individually, so one purchase for one ride. The prices also vary, based on demand, and this can help you lock in that "Must Do!" experience that was at the top of your bucket list. You can purchase these, even if you are not using Disney Genie+. These are also purchased via the My Disney Experience App. If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel you can make an Individual Lightning Lane purchase starting at 7 am the day of your visit, while other guests can start ordering when the park opens.

    QUICK REVIEW
    So, there are two ways to get into the faster lightning lanes. One way, Genie+, works much like the old FastPass, but all through your phone, and for a flat daily rate. The second, Individual Lightning Lanes, also work through your phone but are for just a few select rides, and are on a per-ride basis.

    But you asked specifically what Genie+ costs. As I mentioned, the price will vary day-by-day, based on demand. I have never seen it rise much over $35 for a day, with most of my days being closer to $20. But again, and I cannot stress this enough, prices vary over time, and I am just sharing my own experiences. You cannot count on either of these numbers to be an exact quote of the cost. What I do think is a plus about all this is that you will see a price, and you will have the choice to decide if you think, on each day, if it is something you find worth the cost.

    BONUS TIP
    There is no way to purchase Genie+ for the duration of a trip ahead of time. It is always a day-by-day decision, purchased on the day of use.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
