The new tool will bring together 60 years of expertise and help guests maximize their time in the parks by providing them with a personalized schedule, suggested dining options, and more. And, with so many new features to learn about, we’re covering the little details that you may have missed but will make a BIG difference during your trip!
These Are The 5 Most Mind-Blowing Features Coming to Disney Genie!
Forecasted Wait Times for Attractions
Many guests are likely used to searching for current attraction wait times on the My Disney Experience app, but Disney Genie will help guests minimize their wait times even more by providing forecasted wait times for rides throughout the day!
So, guests can add which attractions they’re hoping to ride throughout the day to the app and it will take into account forecasted waits and availability throughout the day to create recommendations for when would be the best time to ride.
And, Disney Genie will even suggest dining locations that guests can mobile order from that are conveniently located near the attractions around mealtimes!
Real-Time Itinerary Suggestions
Plus, as part of the free features, guests will be able to input their preferences for the day such as rides they want to tackle, places they want to eat, and dining reservations that they have and the app will automatically create an itinerary.
And, as wait times fluctuate, dining locations get busy, and inclement weather hits the area, Disney Genie will continue to update your itinerary throughout the day so that you can know the best way to plan your day.
Disney PhotoPass AR Lenses
The new feature will also include a paid-for option called Disney Genie+, which includes access to new Lightning Lanes (more on this later). But, skipping the line isn’t the only benefit to purchasing Disney Genie+!
At Disney World, guests will also gain access to new Disney PhotoPass AR Lenses, which offer up a new way to capture all of your vacation memories.
New Audio Experiences in the Parks
Disney Genie+ will also include access to exclusive new Audio Experiences that feature Imagineers and other special guests who share behind-the-scenes secrets about attractions and other locations around the park!
So, you’ll be able to experience the parks in an entirely new way (and unlock some hidden details in the process).
Lightning Lane Entrances
Lastly, Disney finally answered the question of whether FastPasses would return to Disney World and Disneyland. And, while it was announced that FastPass, FastPass+, and MaxPass would be discontinued moving forward, Disney did share details about the new way to “skip the line” at attractions — through the Lightning Lane!
Disney Genie+ will include Lightning Lane access to over 40 attractions throughout all four theme parks in Disney World for $15 per person, per day and over 15 attractions in both Disneyland Parks for $20 per person, per day. But, Disney’s most highly demanded rides will not be included in Disney Genie+.
Instead, guests hoping to ride some of the most popular attractions like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Disney World or Radiator Springs Racers at Disneyland will need to purchase access to the Lightning Lane through Individual Attraction Selection.
The pricing of Individual Attraction Selections will vary based on the date, attraction, park, and guests will only be able to book a maximum of two attractions per person, per day.
So, there you have it — some of the coolest features coming to Disney Genie this fall! We’ll continue to keep you up-to-date with everything you need to know about Disney’s new app, and, in the meantime, you can learn even more about Disney Genie and all its new features in the video below!
