Get ready for expensive “Disney Genie Plus” to replace the free system

Disney has a new, expensive feature that will revolutionize the guest experience it’s called the Disney Genie Plus. Disney announced yesterday that the paid reservation system will replace the free system, Disney FastPass Plus, but there’s no word on when.

The old system was suspended throughout the pandemic, but unlike fireworks and parades, it won’t be making a comeback.

Every park visitor will have access to Disney Genie though the My Disney Experience and Disneyland mobile apps.

Starting this fall, guests will be able to tell the app what they want to do and where they would like to eat during their stay and the program will create an itinerary. It’s designed to be customizable and flexible, so if guests decide they don’t want to go on a ride or want to try a different in-park restaurant, Genie will reorganize the schedule.

Parkgoers can also use the app to order food and pay for merchandise and like the current app, wait times for attractions also will be displayed.

That’s what Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek says about Disney Genie Plus.

Disney Genie Plus will cost 15 dollars per ticket per day, and Chapek says it will reduce wait times and make it much easier to navigate the park and plan your day.
