Disney activating the Genie service in California parks: Travel Weekly
Disney’s Genie and Genie + will do their debut at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., on December 8.
The free Disney Genie service helps customers plan their days. Found in the Disneyland app, guests 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 advice board that shows current attraction wait times and projects future wait times. The routes are constantly updated throughout the day.
Disney Genie + is a paid service that allows customers to use attraction Lightning Lane entrances for shorter wait times, for $ 20 per ticket, per day.
Each guest can own a selection of Lightning Lane at a time and can enter the Lightning Lane of each attraction once per day. Lightning Lanes are available for select attractions at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park. The first selection of Lightening Lane can be made as soon as a guest enters a park.
Genie + also includes unlimited digital PhotoPass downloads for the day.
Customers can purchase Genie + in the Disneyland app once they have entered the park for the day. After December 8, Genie + can also be purchased in advance when purchasing tickets.
