    hi can you tell me about the new genie program and when it will start in disney world orlando?

    Hi, Christy! Welcome to planDisney!

    The Walt Disney World Resort is where you can make all of your vacation wishes come true, and the new Disney Genie service will make it even easier. Hang onto your magic carpet, Christy, as we explore what this whole new world of vacation planning has to offer!

    The Disney Parks Blog brought us the news that Disney Genie would be launching in the fall, but we don't yet have the exact date. Since your vacation is starting in just a couple of weeks, I'm not sure if it will be up and running when you arrive. Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and the Disney Genie page on the Walt Disney World website for the latest! 

    Now that we have that out of the way, how will Disney Genie work? One function I'm looking forward to is the ability to plan our ideal Walt Disney World itinerary based on our interests. Whether your family loves princesses or space flight, Disney Genie can help you plan a practically perfect day. Plus, you'll get tip boards and recommendations, and a chat feature that will allow you to ask questions in real time. That will be a big help!

    Those are all free features on Disney Genie, but when you add Disney Genie+, you just add to the fun! Disney Genie+ gives you access to the Lightning Lane on many attractions, so you can choose the next available time to ride one of your favorites. Then, you can choose another, and another, one at a time throughout the day. You can also purchase Lightning Lane access separately for some of the most popular rides in the parks. It's a huge time saver!

    Christy, there's a great informational video about Disney Genie on the Disney Parks YouTube page that will fill in some of the details. If you still have questions, please don't hesitate to stop by and see us again here at planDisney. We're always here to help!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
