Following Disneyland’s Genie+ service announcement, Walt Disney World has followed with its own.
Disney World has introduced date-based variable pricing for the Disney Genie+ service. Here’s everything you need to know:
“Disney Genie+ service continues to be very popular among our guests. As we continue to manage the strong demand we are seeing for this service, we are introducing variable pricing for Disney Genie+, starting Tuesday, 11th Oct.
At Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Genie+ will also vary in price based on the date a guest is visiting. Similar to theme park tickets, throughout the year, prices may be lower on less busy days and higher during peak periods like Thanksgiving and Christmas.
For example, now through the end of October, prices will be $15 per Guest, per day on less busy dates, $22 on some of our busier dates, and somewhere in between on other dates (plus tax; prices subject to change beyond October).
As a reminder, single-day purchases of Disney Genie+ at Walt Disney World Resort are only available directly through the My Disney Experience app on the guest’s date of visit.”Disney (via Blog Mickey)
We needed to use an announcement “release” in order to understand this! And, we know Disney! Stay tuned for further updates to this article.
Update: Following this unsurprising announcement, we also know now that pricing for Individual Lightning Lane access will also follow the new structure.
According to WDWNT, minimum prices will remain the same. However, select attractions will see a price increase on Lightning Lane access, the established outlet reports.
For example: Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will now cost between $15 – $22 per person (depending on the date).
According to WDWNT, Disney has stated that the prices (seen in the above paragraph) are for this month and “subject to change beyond that.”
