Disney Genie will help you know when the lines will be the SHORTEST!

And, for those who aren’t sure exactly what to ride or where to eat, Disney Genie will seamlessly map out your day based on your interests like princesses, superheroes, thrill rides, “foodie experiences,” and more.

  1. Genie will not be used to optimize your day at the parks. It will be used for crowd control…to direct you to where Disney wants you to go. It will over estimate wait times (Disney does this already) to encourage more Genie PLUS purchases and Lightning Lane pay-per-ride passes.

  2. The magic of Disney parks for us and the most relaxing part of our vacation was putting our devices away and not looking at a screen. That has become harder and harder to do and Disney will now make it impossible. I have stopped recommending WDW to my friends because it’s relaxation factor is down to zero. So sad but time to move on.

  3. Genie has already helped me plan. Since I won’t be visiting the “parks”…you can put your Genie….back in the bottle.

  4. Well, the magic of Disney has definitely gone! Disney has become ridiculous with greed. My family will see Washington D.C this Year.
