Disney Genie+ prices have increased

by Samantha Davis-Friedman

Starting today, Disney Genie+ prices have increased at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts.

Disney Genie+ prices

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.

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.

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.

I’m hopeful Genie+ eventually reaches the same price as admission to the parks. That would be awesome! Also, each land should have separate admission fees as well. It makes no sense to pay a flat fee for admission and then be able to roam the park as you please. An extra layer of land admission would be killer! Honestly, they should charge people an exit fee as well at the end of the day. Logic would dictate if you pay to enter you should pay to leave! I really feel Disney has only just scratched the surface of allowing people to pay for things you used to be able to just do for one flat fee. What an absurd business model that was! Come on Disney, make it happen…if you can dream it, you can scheme it!

Disney has become the greediest corporation in America. At the same time, they are the most woke. There is a cognitive dissonance there. The so called liberals running Disney must feel guilt and shame for gouging their fellow citizens, which explains the need to virtue signal so hard with the woke nonsense.

Diz seems to have adopted the same add-on policy sen throughout the travel industry. The price of admission no longer allows you access to all thr attractions. It’s really a high-tech form of the old A-E Tickets, but with each sold separately.

Disney has done a fantastic job…of alienating customers like me.
Universal 100% of my theme park dollars for the past several years, and they treat me as a valued customer.
My last four Orlando trips had zero Disney days, as I stayed on property at Universal each time.
And I am a person with no-expiration Magic Your Way passes.

Epic Universe and Disney’s terrible attitude toward their customer base is going to change the balance of power.
All Universal has to do is not screw things up.
