New Disney Genie Service Officially Launched TODAY at Walt Disney World
Today is the day! The new Disney Genie service officially launched for Walt Disney World. This new service will make your theme park visits easier and more fun by harnessing the power of the brand new digital service that’s built right into the My Disney Experience app. *note, you must update the app on your device to be able to access Disney Genie.
The complimentary Disney Genie is designed to create your best day ever. Once the app opens, you will be able to choose your top interests, such as specific attractions, foodie experiences, and entertainment.
You will also be able to select special interests like Disney princesses, villains, Pixar, Star Wars, thrill rides, and more.
Based off of those interests, the Genie will build your custom itinerary with updates that continue from morning through night.
The Genie gives you recommendations for dining and attractions. It even displays the best times to go to an attraction and gives a forecasted wait.
The Genie continuously offers suggestions throughout the day so you can better make the most of your visit.
Under the “My Day” tab, is where you can find any plans you have made for the day. Plans include dining reservations, Disney Resort hotel reservations, and activity bookings. You can also virtually chat with a Cast Member who can help answer any questions that arise.
Another fun feature lets you see estimated wait times for your top attractions, entertainment, and dining. You can also order food, make dining reservations, check into a restaurant, request to join a virtual queue, and even book arrival times for our new Lightning Lane entrance at select experiences if you’ve purchased Disney Genie+ service.
If you are wanting to take your day to the next level, then upgrading to the Genie+ is for you. For an additional $15 per day, per ticket, you will be able to skip the lines and select the next available arrival windows for more than 40 attractions for the new Lightning Lane entrances.
You will be able to make 1 selection at a time throughout the day for your favorite attractions. You are even able to select Lightning Lane arrival windows across multiple theme parks if you purchased the Park Hopper option. You can secure your first arrival time for a Lightning lane entrance starting at 7:00 AM on the day of your visit.
For some of the more popular attractions, Lightning Lane entry will be available as an “á la carte” purchase- or better known as Individual Lightning Lane selections. This option will be available for all Guests—with or without Disney Genie+ service—and lets you choose a time to arrive at up to 2 attractions each day (booked one at a time).
