    Is there a genie tutorial

    Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ allow Guests to have “A Whole New World” of experiences! Of course, as Genie says to Aladdin as he’s explaining how “granting wishes” works, “There are a few, uh, provisos, a, a couple of quid pro quos.” Greg, understanding exactly how Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ work is a great question! I’m glad you came to planDisney!

    There are a few Disney Genie tutorial videos that are on the Walt Disney World Resort website. I’ve linked that video in this answer for you! For a quick overview, I’ll explain the difference between the two services. 

    Disney Genie is a complimentary planning service that Guests can find on their My Disney Experience app. This service allows Guests to do some advanced planning, as well as receive some helpful tips while they are in the Disney Parks. You can find Disney Genie on your app by tapping the button that states, “Summon Disney Genie.” Once you tap the button, some instructions will appear. You’ll then tap the “Start Now” button to begin your planning! This will include you sharing which attractions, entertainment, and dining experiences are important to you during your vacation. Once you enter your information, Disney Genie will conjure up an itinerary just for you!

    Disney Genie+ is a paid upgrade to the complimentary Disney Genie service. This service allows Guests to purchase access to the Lightning Lane entrance at select attractions and entertainment in the four Disney Parks. The Lightning Lane entrance allows Guests to skip the traditional line and have a shorter wait for attractions. Currently, Guests may purchase Disney Genie+ on the day of their visit to the Disney Parks. You can then begin to select your preferred attractions beginning at 7:00 AM. The price for Disney Genie+ service fluctuates based upon date. Guests can check the daily price on their My Disney Experience app.

    Greg, I hope this information is helpful! I encourage you to watch the Disney Genie tutorial that I provided. It will provide you with additional information that will help you navigate Disney Genie and Disney Genie+!

    Happy Planning!
