Disney Genie+ sells out for the Multi-Park option today at Walt Disney World

Disney Genie+ has sold out today (February 12, 2024) for the Multi-Park option for the first time since the New Year's crowds in early January.

 

Although the Multi-Park option is also no longer available to purchase, unusually, all the individual parks remain available. Genie+ is priced at $29 today for Magic Kingdom, EPCOT for $21, Disney's Hollywood Studios for $26, and Disney's Animal Kingdom for $18.

Walt Disney World has been busy over the last few days, with thousands of attendees from the National High School Cheerleading Championship at EPSN Wide World of Sports, and the start of Mardi Gras.

The Multi-Park and Magic Kingdom options have been priced for the past couple of days at the highest since the New Year's Eve crowds left on January 4. Over the last couple of weeks, pricing has hovered between $23 and $25.

Disney Genie+ is a purchase option within the Disney Genie service that makes the former FastPass line available at select attractions, now called Lightning Lane. Certain headline attractions are not part of Genie+, and Lightning Lane access at those attractions requires an Individual Attraction purchase which varies in price. Learn more about Genie+.

While I agree with the intent of the poster’s assertions, his opinion is based on things he has read, not personal experience. As someone with personal experience, there have been times (not always) where attraction capacity has been halved during busy days. A shortage of labor - whether intentional or not - is real. Genie+ does increase standby wait times more than FP+ (again, lots of personal experience). As for Peter Pan (or any attraction) a ride breakdown compounds the problem. We got in line for PP recently (during parade time) when the posted wait was 35 minutes. Our actual wait was well over an hour, due to ride being down at some point earlier in the day and all the guests with LLs (that they couldn’t use during the temporary closure) showed up after the parade. So while wait times can be inflated, we’ve also experienced the opposite. And not just at PP. I hate Genie and would prefer standby only, everyone with equal access. But greed no longer allows that.

Running attractions at half capacity isn't true, but artificially increasing wait times is 100% happening.

How is Peter Pan running at half capacity? Are they loading every other ride vehicle on purpose?

There's no way that your statement of fact is true

Genie + is such a scam-- Disney runs attractions at half capacity, reduced staff thus artificially increasing wait times forcing people to buy Genie while driving up the price. Disney's greed knows no bounds.

DLP have changed their fastpass system. There’s now Premier Access. You either buy it for the day giving you one ride on each attraction - but it’s more than the cost of a day ticket. Or buy it for individual attractions with a return time of 5-10 minutes usually (shows you book for a specific time).

Genie+ is not the only cause of the issues. A finite number of LL is issued for each hour and is possibly the same as the old fastpass+ number. Inceased use of DAS, legitimate or otherwise is just as responsible for the standby issues as @lentesta has said

This very extended queue is also another glaring reason why Disney should really do something about the bottle necks at that end of Fantasyland... Outside of the other glaring issues that are Genie+/LL.

That's just...........bizarre.

Man I wish Disney just did ultimate fast pass like in Paris or did express pass similar to Universal. Who actually wants to stand in line for this ride?

To be technically correct, it's called Yield Management and I've been screaming that for over 12 years now after being a beta tester and focus group participant for FP+ and learning what the end game was. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yield_management

Gotcha, my bad there. To be honest the G+/FP+ debacle that erupted out of MyMagic+ can never be "fixed" by the routes they are trying. The sole reason FP+ exists is because they thought they could spend ~1.5B on new tech and basically never have to expand the parks again. We've discussed this at nauseam, but its the truth. The number of legacy FP attractions vs FP+ into G+ attractions is vastly higher. It's all "capacity management", selling less G+ and having less LL's issued could very well bring down Standby times, the problem with the transition from FP+ to G+, is that G+ should not also have this long list of attractions to choose from, but now that they're selling a "product", they NEED the avaibility. The only way to ever solve this problem is true added capacity to the theme parks.
