    Just heard about Genie+ and one of the features mentioned is a photo feature to capture your memories – augmented reality lenses for those visiting WDW. What exactly is "augmented reality lenses"? Is this PhotoPass or Memory Maker?

    Say Cheese, Tammy!

    Welcome to planDisney. Thank you for sending us your awesome question about Disney Genie service. I am thrilled to help you better understand the magical new program coming to Walt Disney World Resort this fall!

    Tammy, we don’t know exactly what the “augmented reality lenses” entail just yet. However, we do know that they involve audio and visual enhancements and features that will be a part of Disney Genie+ (available for purchase). We also know that they are being called Disney PhotoPass AR Lenses which means they are part of the Disney PhotoPass line of products.

    Earlier this year, Disney PhotoPass collaborated with Snapchat to create AR Lenses featuring some of our favorite Disney friends. These lenses allow Mickey and Minnie to pose right beside you on Snapchat. They can even hug you and make playful expressions and gestures. I hope this helps “paint a picture” for you about what these AR lenses may be capable of doing, Tammy.

    This Disney Parks Blog post also gives a clue about some of the AR Lenses coming to Walt Disney World Resort for the 50th-anniversary celebration. Don’t forget to click on the video at the bottom of the post to learn more and see one of these AR Lenses in action.

    As a reminder, Disney Genie+ service will not include complimentary Disney PhotoPass photos or Memory Maker entitlements in Walt Disney World Resort. I encourage you to look into purchasing Memory Maker before your vacation. Additionally, purchasing Memory Maker in advance of your vacation helps you save money!

    I hope I have helped answer your question. If you have any other questions, please visit planDisney again. We are always hEAR to help you, Tammy!

    Wishing you a Picture-Perfect Vacation,
