This makes you feel like a 2nd class citizen with the way Disney manage the line if you don’t buy it and if you do buy it, it gets very pricey
Cons:Expensive and managed unfairly

My group thought about what we would use it on if we got any. We managed to get Rise and we used it for the new guardian's ride as we didn't get a boarding group. It was nice for Rise as we had pretty much a guaranteed ride and it played to our advantage as it was down almost the whole day except for about three hours that our window was in. We were glad we got to ride the new guardian's ride at all but it was disappointing that we missed all of the stuff before the preshow. I think if we didn't spend the money on Cosmic rewind we would have gotten Flight of passage after riding it during rope drop. The only other ride that might be worth it is Snow White but that is a different story.
Pros:Get to ride the big rides with little wait time
Cons:Cost can add up

While I'm not happy that we have to pay extra for these rides and with a family of 5 it can get pretty steep, it was worth it to use this for most of what's available. We used it for Rise of the Resistance and Mickey's Runaway Railway at DHS. We also used it for Remy's and Frozen Ever After at Epcot. Unfortunately we did use it for Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom too only because it's my boy's favorite ride. I don't think it was worth it for that though. In general, I'm not very happy with the Genie+ system but it was worth it for most of the Individual rides.
Pros:not having to wait long
Cons:having to pay extra

We bought some for Rise if the Resistance pretty much as a treat after a bad night and it was fine
A 5 minute wait instead of the 3 hours that was posted is unbeatable but the almost 50 bucks we spent for one ride for my family of three was a little steep
Also advice of don’t but for Space Mountain or Everest (short wait through the day) or Remy’s (hot take: that rides not worth paying for)
Thank you and good night

I think this is the worst idea that has ever come from Disney. I'm inclined to pay for Genie+ to save time and because it includes multiple attractions. I will never pay for an individual lightning lane. However, I live in Florida and get to go to Disney often. I'll ride everything eventually. I would understand how someone who goes to Disney once every few years may need to pay to experience the rides. I still think its greedy, money hungry, and unfair.
Cons:Giving disney all your money

We used the individual selection at Epcot on Frozen Ever After during the Thanksgiving holiday. The ride went down, and as soon as the ride re-opened the standby wait time was 120 minutes. We were so thankful that we had purchased access to the lightning lane! We had less than a 10 minute wait. It was worth every penny!
Pros:We avoided a 2 hour wait.
Cons:Having to pay per ride.

Not a fan of the additional cost. For a family, it's not worth it, in my opinion. However, when going with friends or in smaller groups I think it's great!
Pros:Great for individuals or smaller groups

was at WDW Dec 7-12 and only did one Individual Lightening Lane- Ratatouille. It was well worth it to walk right onto the ride. The ride is worth it too!
Pros:walked right on to ride

I like the idea of being able to ride an attraction that is normally a long wait (RoR,Frozen) with little to no wait. We bought the Frozen LL since we didn’t feel the need to purchase Genie+ at Epcot that day. We waited in a 5 minute line which was perfect. We would have bought it for RoR but weren’t able to snag one since we weren’t staying on property . It would have saved us a 2 hour wait! I don’t think it is worth it for every ride but can really save you on others!
Pros:Short lines for some popular attractions that we may skip otherwise due to wait times.
Cons:The prices can be pretty high… we paid over $50 to Let it Go 🥶 Also if you aren’t staying on property, sometimes those individual attractions are gone before you are allowed to buy!

Overall, if you want to maximize your time and minimize your wallet, I say YES to Individual Attraction costs. We used this service for FOP, it was well worth it, I let my first-timer sister know we were missing parts in the queue and that didn't hinder her decision to bypass the line, posted standby was 75 minutes and with this service we waited 6 minutes. We did not use this service for Remy's as were able to snag a spot in the 7am v-queue both days at EPCOT; if in the end we weren't able to snag the 7am on our first try, I wouldn't have gambled for the 1pm slot and would've bought the LL selection because these sell out quick, also our return time was estimated and updated all day which helped us to be able to go on with plans outside of heading over to our Remy ride. We didn't use this for Everest, either, posted standby was 20 and we waited 18 but I love that queue.
