Magic Kingdom's Genie+ offering has sold out for the second consecutive day as Thanksgiving crowds descend on the parks at Walt Disney World.

The Magic Kingdom Genie+ option sold out at noon today, 45 minutes earlier than yesterday, resulting in the Multi-Park option also being removed from sale.

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

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, Disney's Animal Kingdom at $25, Disney's Hollywood Studios at $32, and EPCOT at $28.

This week'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.

Yes, specifically went to MK for the lighter day. Also did a park hop day on the Saturday and ended up with the following (posted wait times listed when I got in line) RAT (70), Frozen (75), Soarin (55), Buzz (70), Pooh (55), Tea cups (25), Dumbo(45). We were in the parks from ~9am to 6pm. So 7 LL in 9 hours. EPCOT is a weird one for booking because the park is so big, but also we wanted to spend time enjoying festival of the holidays, and had to balance the Guardians VQ. I ended up just pushing back Soarin and Buzz multiple times. Also Buzz, Pooh and Dumbo were very backed up for the LL and all took ~15 minutes to get on the ride.

I thunk resides are fine for non T1s. T1s should allow rerides after a certain time of day when G+ sales dwindle whenever that is.

Not allowing Rerides on hard to get attractions allows more people who have purchased genie+ a chance to ride it once. Not allowing Rerides on Tier 3’s is dumb and likely due to lazy programming.

No reason really to not allow rerides if availability is left At a minimum should let people rerides if still open after a certain amount of time. Like if after 4pm and rode MMRR earlier and still availability, why not? If that was a priority for people they would have selected it by then But even that shouldn't be needed - if someone is able to get more than one for SDD then the park is pretty empty that day

It absolutely should be allowed. If there are not enough purchasers in the ecosystem to use all of the available inventory those who have purchased should be allowed access to that inventory instead of it just sitting there un-used which is what currently happens.

With drops of LLs through the day it could be possible, just like it was with FP+ Not with any certainty, but still possible. But you didn’t explain why for the first scenario….

Fido Chuckwagon2 days ago

I meant Tier 3 in the general sense, not specific to if we go back to a pre booking system. Under the current system, if someone grabs SDD at opening, gets on it, and there is still SDD available for that evening, no, I don’t think they should be able to book it again. If we go back to prebooking the question is moot because this scenario will never happen.

If we really do end up going back to 3 pre-booked, and there are still LLs left for Tier 1 rides after you’ve used those, which there used to be with FP+, then I’m curious why you think we shouldn’t be able to re-ride.

Fido Chuckwagon2 days ago

Rerides should be permitted on Tier 3 rides. You should be able to ride IASW as many times as you want to. Rerides should not be permitted for Tier 1’s.

Yesterday was a MVMCP night and MK is historically empty on party nights as people don’t feel like they get their “value” with no fireworks and a park close at 6 (although I’d argue you more than get your value from 7:30AM-6PM if you’re on site as in those 11.5 hours you can probably do everything you want twice and still have time left over). I would not judge G+ efficiency and quality based on yesterday’s crowds. I was there as well.

I do not understand the logic that re-rides aren’t possible. They were allowed under FP and FP+ and anytime I look at the LL list on G+ there are a ton of returns times available immediately or within 10 minutes of the current time. The capacity appears to be there to the average guest even if it isn’t. If I pull a LL for BTMRR or Pirates at 10AM for 10:15 and then later in the day at 3:30 I can get one for 3:40, the average guest (and rightfully so) believes that there is capacity to allow them to re-ride, but they can’t because of the way the system is set up. Under FP+ you could pick any ride once you exhausted your three pre-booked attractions and most guests still remember being able to access additional FP’s under the old system.

No way Disney is giving this away to the people who are the ones guilty of paying most of these high prices for free

They can’t even give it to all Deluxe resort guests. So they’d have to split that category down even further.

I agree.......But Universal doesnt give it to all hotel guests either..........WDW could tailor it to specific class of hotel guests
