Disney activates Genie service in California parks : Travel Weekly
Disney’s Genie and Genie+ will debut at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California on December 8.
The free Disney Genie service helps guests plan their days. In the Disneyland app, customers can use Genie to share their tastes (eg princesses or foodie attractions) and get customizable suggestions on what to do and when to do it.
Genie also includes a personal dashboard that shows current attraction wait times and projects future wait times. Routes are continuously updated throughout the day.
Disney Genie+ is a paid service that allows customers to use Lightning Lane entrances to attractions for shorter wait times, for $20 per ticket per day.
Each guest may hold one Lightning Lane selection at a time and may access each attraction’s Lightning Lane once per day. Lightning Lanes are available for select attractions at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks. The first Lightening Lane selection can be made as soon as a customer enters a park.
Genie+ also includes unlimited PhotoPass digital downloads for the day.
Guests can purchase Genie+ in the Disneyland app once they enter the park for the day. After December 8, Genie+ can also be purchased in advance when purchasing tickets.
