Disney Genie+ sells out at Walt Disney World on the first day of the Thanksgiving holiday week

Magic Kingdom's Genie+ offering has sold out today on the first day of the busy Thanksgiving holiday week.

With the Magic Kingdom Genie+ option sold out, the Multi-Park option is also no longer available.

Genie+ remains available to purchase for individual parks at EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Genie+ selling out is relatively rare, but it does happen during holiday periods. We can expect to see the pattern repeated during the week ahead.

With the start of the Thanksgiving week, Genie+ pricing at Walt Disney World has risen to match record highs.

The Multi-Park and Magic Kingdom Genie+ option is $35 today, up from yesterday's $27. All the parks have seen a $8 or $9 increase over yesterday's prices, with Disney's Animal Kingdom at $25 today, Disney's Hollywood Studios at $32, and EPCOT at $28.

Today's pricing is the highest since Genie+ launched at Walt Disney World. It remains to be seen if the pricing will go higher during any periods of the upcoming holiday peak weeks, particularly the week following Christmas Day.

All Indifivudal Lightning Lane Purchases have also risen by a couple of dollars today. Avatar Flight of Passage $16, Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind $17, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train $12, Star Wars Rise of the Resistance $25, and TRON Lightycle Run $20.

Used the new tip to help out someone doing a ride challenge on May the Fourth. Helped her a few times: 8am Pan (park open). Booked at 7:01am 8:45am Jungle cruise. Booked at 8:01am 3:45pm TT. Booked at 1:45pm (They didn't redeem, in case one of us could score something better) 2:40pm RAT. Booked at 1:47pm I did quite a bit of refreshing for those last 2, but just shows it is possible. Does anyone have a list of when LL's drop for various attractions?

Learned a new G+ tip the other day and I thought I would share. If you are refreshing looking for a better time on a single ride... Don't pull down to refresh then click the ride once you see a better time come up. Often times you will be too slow and someone else will have gotten that better time. Instead of refreshing that main page, simply click the ride on whatever time it does to move on to the confirmation screen. The time will automatically shift to the latest time available (which might be different that the tip board screen). If it is not the time you want, click back and do it again. This way if you see a time, you are holding that time as soon as you see it.

I've seen many people say they don't like having to be on their phone all day. I didn't experience that. I'd book a LL, set an alarm for a few minutes before the next booking time, and then put my phone away. Lather, rinse, repeat. I don't remember spending more than about 5 (*maybe* 10) minutes on my phone every time I was scheduling another LL. My husband spent *way* more time than that on his phone and he didn't schedule *any* LLs. It was no worse than it was with FP+. And it sure beats having to walk to the ride you wanted to ride to get a FP for it or walking to a kiosk and standing in line to schedule a FP+ before you could do it on the app. I'd venture to guess that I spent more time in the FP/FP+ kiosk days walking back and forth across the parks to get the rides we wanted compared to the amount of time I was on my phone for G+. At least I can parallel process when using my phone -- doing the scheduling while eating a snack or meal or while standing in line somewhere.

Well I’ve had decent luck using it as well after learning the tricks but I spend an enormous time on my phone all day playing the game which I don’t like

Didn't need fixing. I'm ok paying for it, I just don't want it to be $35/day. I felt like $15-20 was a good price. We were FP+ power users, but we had even better success with G+/ILL.

Oh how I wish these would be the prices when we're there next month.

Here's a look at pricing for Genie+ today - the last time prices were at this level was February 25, 2024.

Lol, how I long for the days when it was $15…

Doesn't include the more popular attractions. You have to pay even more to access the lightening lane per ride for those attractions. Total money grab! Disney is pricing themselves out of existence .

So now that the changes to DAS have been announced, any idea on how far away we are from getting news about pre-booking G+ selections?

Disstevefan1Apr 09, 2024

I think you are right. This is the new floor. Remember how low the prices were when it started

@tanc is talking about LL Bean's return policy that was changed a few years back.
