Disney Genie+ sells out at Walt Disney World as busy spring break season arrives

Posted: Wednesday March 15, 2023 3:00pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Walt Disney World's Genie+ has sold out today as the busy spring break season arrives at Magic Kingdom.

Genie+ has been at its peak price for this week, costing $29 per person, per day. Genie+ hit capacity around 3pm today, and sales of Genie+ was halted. Genie+ sales reached capacity for the first time ever at Walt Disney World over Presidents' Day weekend in February 2023.

Disney added the ability for Genie+ sales to be suspended in an update to the service in May 2022 when the company also stopped advance sales of Genie+.

Disney Genie+ is an 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 prices.

Yeah, there's really no comparison between the Express Pass and Genie+. I'd rather pay $200 for a Disney version of Express Pass than $25 for Genie+ (although I think it would probably need to cost even more than that at WDW). Plus, all the deluxe resort guests get Express Pass included with their room.

Thank you! I filled out the form a few days ago and got an email this morning that all my missing photos were recovered 🙌🏼

I booked Disneyland and included Genie+ in my booking, $15 a day if I remember correctly, so it's all sorted out before I go and no price hikes depending on what the day is. Why can't they do that for WDW? I'm not staying at a Disney resort either, I'm at a good neighbour hotel that I've stayed at before that is across the street from the park. I'm curious to know what their housekeeping is like post Covid as it was very good before it.

Oh that’s good to known. We also didn’t get any of our Mine Train photos ☹️

Oh and the water mark is still on our ride photos from our DHS day. That was the day of the system wide Genie outage. So that stinks.

You can still contact photopass and ask them to look into this. Especially if you have other pictures to know what you were wearing and the ride photos should be from the same time. All is not lost

Nice! I just went back and checked and the water mark was removed from ride photos on days we had Genie. I wish I would have known this because we had several ride photos not show up in our account. My husband and I rode Guardians twice separately. So we should have had 4 photos. We had zero of us and about 6 of other random people. But since we didn’t purchase memory maker, I was just like, oh well 🤷🏻‍♀️

I can see them having more AA’s, but really 90% of the budget goes to the two Tiana ones. I do think they have themselves in a pickle if they just reskin what’s already there. My ongoing assumption based on trends in WDI history is to remove rides with extensive and costly to maintain AAs and replace them with screens. If this ride retains half of what’s there it would be a great aberration from the last two decades of ride development.

I don't hate Rat -- I just don't like how often you park in front of a screen and watch a movie. You do at least move through some decent physical sets between the movie portions, though. It's fine overall. Of course that's not really a potential issue for Tiana anyways since they can't park the boats in front of a screen. Something like Little Mermaid is probably the worst case scenario for Tiana.
