Walt Disney World, located in Orlando, Florida, is where fairy tales come to life and cherished childhood memories are made. With its enchanting theme parks, Disney World is a world-renowned destination that attracts millions of Guests from around the globe every year. Each Disney World Park offers its own unique charm and attractions, making it a truly magical experience for Guests of all ages.

Disney World is known as “The Most Magical Place on Earth.” However, some Guests have less magical memories. Disney World is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Disney World has added a new system in place to help Guests get to attractions that are on top of their lists. Disney Genie + is a paid add-on service introduced by Disney World as a replacement for the FastPass+ system. It offers Guests the ability to access the Lightning Lane, essentially a virtual queue, for select attractions, entertainment options, and experiences. For a fee, Guests can reserve access to up to two Lightning Lane attractions per day, with the option to purchase additional individual attractions separately.

Disney Genie+ (Disney Genie Plus) is placed on a sliding scale price and changes depending on how busy the Parks are. Magic Kingdom is typically a more popular Park due to its iconic attractions.Disney World just recently changed how Guests can choose Genie +. Disney World Guests will now have the option of purchasing a Park-specific option or all four Parks like before.

Ashley Carter tweeted about Disney Genie+ being the highest price since starting the new Park to Park pricing. Disney Genie is for Guests looking to bypass the standby queue and join a separate queue for select attractions and entertainment experiences. Prices for Disney Genie change due to certain times of the year tend to be busier such as Spring Break, Summer, and Holidays.

Genie+ at Disney World has reached its highest price under the new park-specific pricing model since its introduction last week. Multiple Parks: $29 (prev. $27) Magic Kingdom: $29 (prev. $27) EPCOT: $21 (prev. $18) Hollywood Studios: $26 (prev. $24) Animal Kingdom: $18 ($16)

Guests looking to purchase Genie + or Individual Lightning Lane passes can do so on the My Disney Experience app.
