Disney Genie, Disney Genie +, and Disney Genie + Lightning Lane are the new replacement for Fast Pass/ Max Pass that we used before.
If you’re wondering how this will affect the DAS at Disneyland please check out my other article here.
Disney Genie will be part of the Disneyland App and is supposed to help you with your time at Disneyland. It will help create an itinerary for you depending on what your interests are.
Some of the features mentioned on the Disneyland website are:
“Get Itinerary Updates from Morning to Night: Disney Genie will continue to update your itinerary throughout your day, so you can be more spontaneous and go with the flow.
Find Your Favorites at a Glance: Create your very own personal tip board to instantly see your favorites. It will display current AND forecasted future wait times, helping you predict when you might experience quicker entry to attractions.
Enjoy More Flexibility and Fun: Disney Genie brings existing planning features together in one place. Join a virtual queue at certain attractions, make dining and experience reservations, mobile order food at many locations, get help from a virtual assistant and more.”
They will also be offering two additional paid services that you may use during your time at the park.
Disney Genie+ will be $20 a day per ticket. Unlike MaxPass, you can only make one ride selection at a time. Your Disney Genie+ will also come with unlimited PhotoPass downloads for the day you are visiting. As of right now there is no option to add Disney Genie+ to your Magic Key like with MaxPass.
Disney Genie Lightning Lane: This option allows for you to choose (and pay for) two high demand rides each day. This is subject to availability and the prices have not been announced yet for the rides. The price will vary by date and attraction.
Lightning Lane pay per ride options:
- Rise of the Resistance
- Radiator Springs
- Web Slingers
Stand-by and virtual queues will still be available.
Disney Genie+ Rides $20 per ticket per day:
- Big Thunder Mountain
- Astro Blasters
- Haunted Mansion
- Indiana Jones
- Small World
- Smugglers Run
- Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin
- Space Mountain
- Splash Mountain
- Star Tours
- Goofy’s Sky School
- Grizzly River Run
- Guardians Of The Galaxy
- Monsters Inc.
- Midway Mania
- Disney Genie is free and is on the Disneyland App. This does NOT come with any ride selection. You must pay.
- Disney Genie+ will be $20 per ticket per day.
- You may only choose one ride at a time. Once you’ve cancelled or used it on the ride you may choose another.
- Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane is pay per ride and the prices have not been announced yet. You only get 2 rides per day.
- Only Disney Genie+ comes with unlimited PhotoPass downloads.
I will definitely miss the free Fastpass option and being able to add MaxPass onto my pass for an additional fee. It does seem like it would be a good idea for Disneyland to give us that option since we will be going there often. I am hoping that they are just working out on how much they want to offer it for the year. I guess time will tell.
Reminder: Masks must be worn indoors only and for ages 2 and up. You do not need a negative Covid test or Vaccination proof at this time.
