    How does Genie plus work? Going to WDW in June and have never used it before.

    Hi Kathleen! Welcome back to planDisney, and thank you for another question!

    Disney Genie+ is my go-to resource whenever I visit Walt Disney World! To use Genie+, you need to download the My Disney Experience mobile app to your smartphone. In the app, Disney Genie Service is already included. Genie lets you view attraction wait times and walk-up times for table service restaurants (you can also make reservations), and it can generate a Tip Board based on your character and attraction preferences. The difference between Genie and Genie+ is that you have to pay a fee for Genie+. You will have the option of purchasing for just one theme park, or if you plan to park hop, you can buy the Multiple Parks option. Pricing varies per theme park and is subject to change.  

    Now, let's talk about what is included in the price! The best thing about Genie+ is access to Lightning Lane queues, which are the shorter lines at attractions (formerly the Fast Pass line). If you are not a fan of long standby queues, Genie+ is for you. It's important to note that not all attractions are in the Lightning Lane price. If you want to ride an attraction like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT, you can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for a separate fee. This attraction also has a virtual queue (along with TRON Lightcycle/Run at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park) that you can begin reserving at 7 AM. Lightning Lane and Individual Lighting Lane queues can also start reserving at that time. 

    The other two perks for Genie+ are Audio Tales, which are fun facts that you can listen to as you explore the theme parks, and Disney PhotoPass Attraction photos. You will get select attraction photos from various attractions, and you can access Disney PhotoPass Lenses, which make for fun photos!

    Kathleen, I hope all of this information was helpful! I hope you "go the distance" and consider purchasing Genie+ during your visit! Thank you again for visiting planDisney. Have a magical visit to Walt Disney World!

    Magic Awaits!
