Why Disney Genie+ Will Cost You More Than You Thought

Disney Genie has officially launched in Disney World bringing new planning features and TWO new paid ways to “skip the lines” at popular attractions throughout the parks.


We’ve been bringing you a look at all the new FREE tools, as well as everything you need to know about purchasing access to new Lightning Lanes (aka the old FastPass lanes) with Disney Genie+ and Individual Attraction Selections. And, if you’re planning to buy these new services during your trip there’s one BIG thing you’ll want to note when finalizing your budget.

We’ve previously shared that Disney Genie+ costs $15 per person, per day, and that Individual Attraction Selections vary in price per person, per ride depending on the attraction, date, and park (ranging from $7 to $15 in its initial rollout). But, one thing that wasn’t noted previously is that tax will be added to the purchase.

So, this means that Disney Genie+ is actually $15.98 per person, per day…

…and Individual Attraction Selections are anywhere between $7.98 to $15.98 per person, per ride (or more depending on how the prices change during busy times of the year).

So, if you’re traveling with a family of four, you’ll want to keep in mind that the cost of Genie+ and each Individual Attraction Selection you choose will actually be an additional $3.92 each due to tax.

  1. After 30 trips since 1994, this spring one will be our last. Our son was married there in 2000. It’s no longer what Walt would have wanted… for all families to be able to experience. We will not pay extra for rides. Our money will be well spent on other places. To all who continue to find it “magical”, congrats. We’ve had enough.

    1. Totally agree. We used to be annual pass holders. Have made numerous trips. Genie+ is a horrid idea. Most people won’t (can’t) forgo the extra expense this forcing more people into stand-by. This all has the semblance of E ticket rides that Walt abolished years ago. Disney leadership needs to rethink this

  2. I MAY use lightning lane for Hollywood studios and magic kingdom, but not every day. Probably will NEVER pay extra for a ride.
