Disney Genie appears to be remaining on track to go live at Walt Disney World during October 2021 - shortly after the start of the resort's 50th-anniversary celebrations.

Disney is yet to make an official announcement on a live date, but since our last update, sources tell us that the rollout of Disney Genie has been pushed back a couple of weeks, shifting from the first week to the third week of October 2021. Timings may shift further, and until officially announced by Disney, should be treated as speculation. For the west coast, the debut at Disneyland is expected a few weeks later.

In addition to the shift in start date, the lineup of Individual Attraction purchases for Lightning Lane access is now expected to be:

  • Disney's Hollywood Studios - Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Slinky Dog Dash
  • Magic Kingdom - Space Mountain, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
  • EPCOT - Frozen Ever After, Remy's Ratatouille Adventure
  • Disney's Animal Kingdom - Expedition Everest and Avatar Flight of Passage

As a reminder, the attractions above are likely not included as part of the $15 per day Disney Genie+, and will require an individual attraction purchase to access the Lightning Lane. Pricing for this option will vary by date, attraction, and park and is still to be announced. We have heard reliable speculation that puts pricing between $4 and $24 depending on date, attraction, and demand.

You can learn more in our Disney Genie FAQ.

I wouldn't be surprised if people dispute CC charges for service not received. Yes I know there's a no refund policy.

The above is for Individual Lightning Lane access (2 at each park). This above is speaking for Genie+ ($15 per day for an array of attractions).

They are two different statements for two different products

Ok, which of these scenarios below is correct- the first is from the FAQ of Genie+, the 2nd is from today’s update on Genie+ opening? Both are here on wdw magic. I am staying offsite next summer and have been loathing the later access for offsite guests- it would be great if everyone starts at 7. from wdwmagic: 16. When can I purchase Individual Attractions for Lightning Lane access? Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests can purchase up to 2 individual attraction selections for Lighting Lane access at 7am on the day of visit. Non-resort hotel guests can make a purchase when the park opens. Also from wdwmagic: Before we get onto secondary selections, your first Disney Genie+ Lighting Lane selection can be made at 7am, regardless of whether you are staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotel or offsite.

I was riding around with some CM friends today discussing this when they told me there would be no refunds for ILLs. We are all pretty shocked by that. Light a candle for the folks in DHS GR.

KiteTails is charming in its disaster-ness. This won't be. lol

I watched kite tails for the first time yesterday and it was oddly adorable. I wish it was 5-10 mins longer. I expected nothing less than Rise having so many problems on opening day of Genie lol

This is a bigger disaster than KiteTails.

Don't know if it ran out, it's currently down so won't show anything. Everything else is still showing availability in 5 minutes except Remy at 8:40

I am wondering if doing HS first in the day and ending at Epcot would be best. Did anyone see when Test Track ran out of passes today?

Doesn’t seem like the wait times are too bad but it’s not a crowded day so we will have to see how it goes.
