Visiting Walt Disney World Resort in the very near future? Not only is Disney preparing for summer crowds with tasty new bites and a brand new roller coaster attraction known as Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, but Disney Park Guests will also want to be aware of big Disney Genie+ changes coming soon.

Disney Genie+ is part of the three-piece puzzle Disney rolled out in Fall 2021. The Disney Genie is a complementary addition to the My Disney Experience App created to help Park Guests optimize their day. The Disney Genie+ is an upcharge service (similar to the former FastPass system) that allows Guests to select a few attractions a day to skip the standby line at the rate of $15 per person, per day.

The third piece of the puzzle is the individual a la carte Lightning Lane attractions. These are the most popular attractions that Guests can pay to skip the line for at an a la carte price. The price per person to skip the line varies depending on crowd size but typically you can expect to pay around $13 per person, per attraction.

Stroll on over to EPCOT with us where the news has previously been shared that when Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind opens on May 27, 2022, Guests will either need to snag a virtual queue or purchase an individual Lightning Lane pass for the attraction. The new ride will NOT have a standby line.

This brings more changes to Disney Genie+! Disney has now announced that Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in EPCOT’s France Pavilion will no longer be considered an individual Lightning Lane attraction in the near future.

Beginning May 31, 2022, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will join EPCOT’s list of Disney Genie+ attractions. This means both Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be individual Lightning Lane attractions from May 27 to May 30. Starting May 31, however, Cosmic Rewind will be the only individual Lightning Lane at EPCOT as Remy’s rolls onto the Disney Genie+ attractions list.
