This morning, Disney announced some changes regarding Disney+ at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Both parks on each coast have seen a lot of demand for this service, and in response, they are introducing new variable pricing for Disney Genie+ beginning Tuesday, Oct. 11.
At Disneyland Resort, Disney Genie+ will now be $25 per day when purchased in advance as an add-on with a new ticket or vacation package. Single-day purchases for Disney Genie+ through the Disneyland app will begin at $25 per day and may vary by date, based on demand. Additionally, the attraction WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure at Disney’s California Adventure Park is now part of Disney Genie+, providing guests with even more options to choose from when using this service.
Over at Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Genie+ will also vary in price based on the date a guest is visiting. Similar to theme park tickets, throughout the year, prices may be lower on less busy days and higher during peak periods like Thanksgiving and Christmas. For example, now through the end of October, prices will be $15 per Guest per day on less busy dates, $22 on some of our busier dates, and somewhere in between on other dates (plus tax; prices are subject to change beyond October). As a reminder, single-day purchases of Disney Genie+ at Walt Disney World Resort are only available directly through the My Disney Experience app on the guest’s date of visit.
You can check out Kara’s article on how to efficiently use Genie+ over at Walt Disney World here. While a price increase is not the greatest news ever, it is a really great service for guests to use, especially on extremely busy days. I have (for the most part) had a successful time using it over the past year at Disneyland, and it has saved me so much time and I have been able to ride some of my favorite attractions without having to wait over an hour. Right now, for example, the Haunted Mansion Holiday is a great reason to buy Genie+ over at Disneyland. During the holiday season, the line for this attraction can get up to two hours long. During a recent trip, I bought Genie+ and was able to get through the line in 15-minutes instead of the long posted wait time. Genie+ can definitely be a time-saver and make your day so much more efficient and fun!
