At the Morgan Stanley’s 2022 Technology, Media & Telecom Conference earlier this week. Disney CFO Christine McCarthy was there representing the Walt Disney Company.
Christine mention how Character Meet & Greets would be returning soon, also how the Disney Parks won’t be returning to pre-pandemic levels.
Also mentioned were the new Genie+ and Lightning Lane experiences for guests.
These new offerings are there to help improve guest experiences. She was quoted saying that “Some people have more money than they have time and others have more time than they have money,” when comparing the different services available.
Those guests with more money can afford to pay for Lightning Lane and Genie+ services, while guests who can’t afford these upgrades will just have to wait in line, some of which are quite long. I don’t know about you but I miss the old Fastpass service…
Disney Genie service creates your best Disney day inspired by your party’s top interests. It also grants you new planning features, including a personalized itinerary creator that seamlessly and smartly maps out your visit with updates that continue from morning to night. And, Disney Genie can even remind you when you’re eligible to make dining and activity reservations in advance.
In addition to getting all of the great features that come with the complimentary Disney Genie service, purchasing the Disney Genie+ service will offer even more convenience and flexibility, for $15 plus tax (USD) per ticket per day.
For some of Disney’s most highly demanded attractions, Lightning Lane entrance access is available to purchase individually. Guests may purchase and select an arrival window one at a time for up to 2 attractions a day. This option is available for all Guests—with or without Disney Genie+ service.
