Starting today, Disney Genie+ prices have increased at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts.
Disney theme park tickets are based on demand, so more desirable days (like weekends and holidays) are priced higher than weekdays – as are more popular seasons like summer, Halloween, and the holidays. So far, pricing for the Disney Genie+ service has been fixed at $15 per ticket per day at Walt Disney World and $20 per ticket per day at Disneyland; however, starting today, Oct. 11, 2022, Genie+ plus will have demand-based pricing at both resorts.
Disney Genie+ prices at Disneyland
At Disneyland, Genie+ will cost $25 per ticket per day if purchased in advance (and only at the time of ticket purchase) – meaning if Genie+ is not added at the time of ticket purchase, guests will need to purchase it on the day they visit. While the pre-purchase price will not vary by date, same-day Genie+ purchases will be priced depending on the date. Disneyland Magic Key holders will still receive 20% off Genie+ purchases.
To soften the blow, Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure in Avengers Campus at California Adventure – previously an Individual Lightning Lane additional purchase – will now be available as a regular Genie+ selection.
Disney Genie+ prices at Walt Disney World
Things are a little different at Walt Disney World. Most importantly, unlike Disneyland, Walt Disney World will no longer sell Genie+ in advance, so the add-on will need to be purchased on the day of your visit. The starting price for Genie+ at Walt Disney World will remain at $15, but can (and likely will) increase on high-demand days. Pricing will be revealed each morning.
“Genie+ pricing ranges from $15 to $22 a day through October, but could change beyond that,” Disney spokesman Eric Scott explained to the Orlando Sentinel. “Visitors should check the My Disney Experience app for specific pricing on the date they want to purchase the service.”
Along with increased Disney Genie+ prices, Individual Lightning Lane prices will also increase. For example, Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will now range from $15 to $22 per person; today at Disneyland, the attraction is priced at $25.
