Disney activating Genie service at California parks
Disney’s Genie and Genie+ will make their debut at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., on Dec. 8.
The complimentary Disney Genie service helps guests plan their days. Found within the Disneyland app, guests can use Genie to share their likes (for instance, princesses or foodie attractions) and get customizable suggestions about what to do and when to do it.
Genie also includes a personal tip board that shows current attraction wait times and projects future wait times. Itineraries are updated continually throughout the day.
Disney Genie+ is a paid service that lets guests utilize Lightning Lane entrances to attractions for shorter wait times, for $20 per ticket per day.
Each guest can hold one Lightning Lane selection at a time and can access each attraction’s Lightning Lane once per day. Lightning Lanes are available for select attractions in both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure park. The first Lightening Lane selection can be made as soon as a guest enters a park.
Genie+ also includes unlimited PhotoPass digital downloads for the day.
Guests can purchase Genie+ in the Disneyland app once they have entered the park for the day. After Dec. 8, Genie+ can also be purchased in advance when tickets are purchased.
At Disneyland, attractions with Lightning Lane entrances for Genie+ users are Autopia, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, Haunted Mansion, Indiana Jones Adventure, It’s a Small World, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain and Star Tours — The Adventure Continues.
At Disney California Adventure, Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions are Goofy’s Sky School, Grizzly River Run, Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: Breakout!, Incredicoaster, Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!, Soarin’ Around the World and Toy Story Midway Mania.
Additionally, guests can separately purchase individual Lightning Lane entrance windows for the most popular attractions. Pricing varies each day.
Lightning Lane entrances can be purchased for California Adventure attractions Radiator Springs Racers and Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure. Guests can purchase entrance windows for Disneyland’s Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disneyland. These attractions are not included with Genie+ and have limited availability.
Attractions continue to offer a standby queue.
Genie, Genie+ and individual Lightning Lane entrance windows debuted at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando earlier this year.
