Disney Genie coming to Walt Disney World on October 19th

Disney Genie

We have news to share today… Disney Genie will be coming to Walt Disney World on October 19th!

Here are the details:

Available for all guests right in the My Disney Experience app, the complimentary Disney Genie service offers new features that let you create your best Disney day! These features include a personalized itinerary creator that effortlessly and smartly maps out an entire day inspired by the things you love – helping you make the most of your park time so you can have more fun. 

Similar to a navigation app on your phone, Disney Genie continues to update your itinerary from morning to night as the day changes, so you can stay spontaneous and go with the flow – whether you need a nap, encounter an unexpected rain shower or want to take a detour for a Mickey ice cream bar.

Many of you have asked about how this cool new technology works. Behind the scenes, the app is capable of magically evaluating thousands of possible itineraries in seconds – so you don’t even have to think about it! Disney Genie puts guests at the center of the experience by prioritizing ways to: 

Reduce time in lines while keeping in mind your top picks 

Pace your day with experiences you’ll enjoy – and haven’t already done yet 

Build around your existing plans like dining reservations and Park Hopper® preferences

Disney Genie uses Disney’s 50+ years of knowledge and expertise in how guests visit the parks to make the experience better for everyone.

With this launch, the Lightning Lane entrance is also being introduced. Available for purchase through the Disney  Genie+ add-on at more than 40 attractions – or individually, “a la carte” at some of the most highly demanded attractions – the Lightning Lane entrance can save you time waiting in line.

As a reminder, attractions continue to offer a traditional standby queue or from time to time, a virtual queue may instead be used at select attractions, like right now at Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. Take a look at the pricing for Disney Genie+ and Individual Attraction Selections:

  • Disney Genie+ Service (Available for Purchase): For the price of $15 per day, per ticket at Walt Disney World Resort and $20 per day, per ticket at Disneyland Resort, choose the next available time to arrive at a variety of attractions and experiences using the Lightning Lane entrance. You can make one selection at a time, throughout the day—from classics like Haunted Mansion to thrill rides like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and newer favorites like Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run (attractions subject to limited availability).
  • Individual Attraction Selections (Available for Purchase): Schedule a time to arrive at up to 2 highly demanded attractions each day using the Lightning Lane entrance—like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom park (subject to limited availability; attractions not included with Disney Genie+). Pricing for this option will vary by date, attraction and park and will be announced closer to launch.

To get ready for the launch, we’ve got you covered with all the information you need to know before you go – visit DisneyGenie.com for more details. Our Guest Experience Team will also be available throughout all four theme parks to assist you and be sure to head over to planDisney for expert tips from the panelists. 

Disney Genie service will come at a later date for Disneyland Resort, so stay tuned to the blog for future updates!  You’ve never had a friend like this.
