Disney Genie debuted in Disney World this week bringing two new paid ways to “skip the line” at popular attractions throughout all four parks.
We’ve been breaking down everything that you need to know about Disney Genie+ and Individual Attraction Selections, including how to purchase each, how to stack Lightning Lane (aka old FastPass lane) reservations, and what the wait times are actually like if you opt not to purchase these services. And, as we head into the weekend, there’s been an update to Individual Attraction Selection pricing.
If you’re not familiar, Individual Attraction Selections are Disney’s new pay-per-ride option. It is offered at 8 different rides (that are NOT included in Genie+) and each guest can purchase a maximum of two reservations per day.
When the service was first announced, Disney shared that pricing for each attraction would vary by date, ride, and park. And, while the pricing had remained consistent from Tuesday through Thursday this week, we’re now seeing the first change in price for select rides.
At Magic Kingdom, the pricing for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train has increased from $10 to $12…
…and Space Mountain has also gotten a $2 price bump, going from $7 to $9.
Over at EPCOT, Lightning Lane access for Frozen Ever After increased from what was $9 during the week to $11…
…and the newest attraction, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure also went up from $9 to $11. Keep in mind that this attraction does not have a standby line and instead uses a virtual queue, so you’ll either need to secure a spot in line during one of the two distribution times (7AM and 1PM) or pay for the Individual Lightning Lane to ride.
We also spotted some price increases for Individual Attraction Selections at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as Avatar Flight of Passage increased from $11 to $14 (the biggest jump in price of all the pay-per-ride attractions).
However, Expedition Everest remained the same, priced at $7.
And, lastly, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, prices increased from $8 to $10 at Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway…
…though Individual Lightning Lane reservations remained the same at $15 for Rise of the Resistance (and again sold out early in the morning, though more could be added later in the day).
The price increases are likely due to it being the weekend, but it is still unclear if these prices remain throughout Saturday and Sunday as well so we’ll be keeping an eye out. And, if you’d rather not pay to “skip the line,” don’t forget that standby lines are still available for all guests at no additional cost.
