Disney has shared a TON of details about the brand new personalized planning tool coming to the My Disney Experience and Disneyland apps this fall!
Disney Genie is already available for guests in Disney World. The service is meant to help guests plan their day around the parks, with tips about ride wait times, locations to eat, and more. Plus, there are now TWO new paid options to skip the lines at popular attractions available in Disney World. And, now that the feature is live, there’s a NEW “on-site perk” available for Disney World Resort hotel guests through the app!
One of Disney’s new services is Individual Attraction Selection (a.k.a. pay-per-ride). This service enable guests to pay for access to new Lightning Lanes at popular attractions that are not included on Genie+. And, while all guests have access to the selections when the park opens, only guests staying at Disney World Resort hotels, the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin, or Shades of Green are able to purchase the pay-per-ride selections early!
For these guests, Individual Attraction Selections are available to be booked at 7AM on the day of their visit, meaning they’ll have access to the most return times and be able to head to the parks having already secured their spot in line.
Keep in mind that these rides available through the pay-per-ride service are NOT available through the regular Genie+ ($15 per ticket per day) service. To skip the lines at these select popular rides available through Individual Attraction Selection, you have to pay for them individually. In Disney World, the rides that are available through the pay-per-ride option include: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Rise of the Resistance, and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.

Just keep in mind that all guests (regardless of where they’re staying) will only be able to make a maximum of two Individual Attraction Selections per day.
And, as far as how much the new attraction selections will cost, Disney has only shared that the pricing will vary by date, attraction, park.
Disney Genie and its related services (Genie+ and pay-per-ride) have officially debuted in Disney World, and we’ve gotten a chance to test them out and see whether staying at a hotel TRULY benefits you when it comes to pay-per-ride selections.

This early booking for pay-per-ride joins other new benefits for on-site guests like Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours (which is only available for guests staying at select hotels).
Of course, we’ll continue to keep an eye out for more information on all the new offerings coming to the parks for guests, so be sure to stay tuned to AllEars for more!
