Price of Lightning Lane Attractions on Disney Genie’s First Day

Today is the day, Disney fans! FastPass is officially Disney history. As of today, October 19, 2021, Walt Disney World Resort has launched the new Disney Genie. Disney Park Guests now have an option to pay to skip the wait on attractions. There are THREE parts to what is available in regards to the general “Disney Genie”. First, there is a complimentary Disney Genie experience in the My Disney Experience mobile app that Disney has said will help Guests have their best Park day. Secondly, there is Disney Genie+ which is basically the old FastPass system but costs Guests $15 per person, per day. And thirdly, there is Lightning Lane. There are a total of EIGHT Lightning Lane attractions that are not available via Disney Genie+. To skip these eight attractions lines, you can purchase a Lightning Lane a-la-carte. While Disney has said pricing for individual Lightning Lane attractions will fluctuate depending on crowd levels, here are the prices of the eight Lightning Lane attractions on Disney Genie’s first day.

For Frozen Ever After this is because the screenshot was taken prior to Park opening. Frozen Ever After still has the usual standby line. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is unique as it is a Virtual Queue experience. This means to ride Remy’s you either need to snag a Virtual Queue OR pay for a Lightning Lane pass.

If you don’t get a Virtual Queue slot at 7:00 am, you can try again at 1:00 pm. If you don’t get a Virtual Queue pass at 1:00 pm, your only option if you really want to ride Remy is to pay to Lightning Lane the attraction.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The two attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios available with Lightning Lane are Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Galaxy’s Edge, and Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway on Hollywood Boulevard.
