Disney World Genie+ is $22 Today After Price Increase
If you were following along with MickeyBlog this week, you undoubtedly heard the news that Disney raised the price of their Genie+ service effective October 11th. At Disney World variable pricing is being introduced for the Genie+ system with the daily cost of Genie+ going anywhere from $15 – $22 depending on the dates.
Today we are seeing this in action. For guests looking to get Genie+ today, you’ll need to pay $22 per person per day for access (previously this was $15 per day.) Check out the post below from Ashley Carter on Twitter:

This means that a family of four now have to pay $88 today for one day of Genie+ front of the line access as opposed to $60.
For those unfamiliar Disney Genie+ has replaced Disney World’s previous FREE Fastpass System and allows guests to bypass the lines at select Walt Disney World attractions. However, NOT ALL headlining attractions are including in your Disney+ purchase with some of them needing to be purchased a la carte. This includes Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Prices for the a la carte Individual Lightning Lane attractions have also had date based pricing but these rates have gone up as well.
For instance now an Individual Lightning Lane purchase for Rise of Resistance at Hollywood Studios can go from $15 per person – $22 per person. Though you don’t have to purchase Disney Genie+ to purchase Individual Lightning Lane and vice versa, those opting to do both will be subject to the price increases on both fronts.
This is a first look at how rates for Disney World’s new Genie+ variable pricing is going to work during peak periods like holiday weekends. We’ll continue to follow this story closely!
