    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    Not sure if you can cancel IAS but that would seem to be the logical explanation: someone with earlier return times canceled and freed up that return time (albeit, a limited amount).

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    Sorry if this has been answered, but do we know if there is specific return time (or choice of return time) for IAS passes? In terms of how Genie+ will practically work I'm gonna guess that at 7 AM everyday there will be a mad-dash to book anything popular. Probably will have to try for a BG...

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    I do think it’s being overstated how much more stressful it will be. Seems relatively simple in practice, assuming the UI is decent (may be a big assumption). Unless you are actually using Genie as a guide to where you should go next, it really shouldn’t be that more time on the phone then...

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    Yeah I think this actually works out decently well for off-site stays (especially if you're not into rope-drop). It's similar to the system previously, with less of the attractions being Tier 1's that are snatched up by those who can book earlier and getting to book your first LL at the same...

    Only thing is being able to buy the LL Select passes at 7 am, whereas offsite can only reserve those once the park opens (who knows if there will be any left at that point). Would have actually provided a decent advantage if it allowed for normal Genie+ LL reservations in the same manner.

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    While my previous posts may seem I'm defending it, think there is a pretty obvious scenario here where whatever hundreds of millions they make off Genie (which will happen), they lose the corresponding or higher amount from long-time Disney obsessives reducing or canceling their trips. I...

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    True, though I think it having a cost will ensure it doesn’t get anywhere close to the take rates of FP+ (which I assume we’re near universal for obvious reasons). Even in a scenario where Genie gets to say, 80% to FP+ 95% you would see a decent difference.

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    Well, I never said it was reasonable 😛 That being said, and I may get crucified for saying this but if it is indeed a max of $65/day/person (Genie+ & 2 LL Select Passes) for limited line skipping and guaranteed skips on a some of the most popular rides in the parks, that isn’t an insane...

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    Also looking at the Touring Plans article they are hearing dynamic pricing from $4-$24/pp for the LL select attractions. That seems on the relative low end, compared to what was speculated in previous threads The pricing overall seems to trend lower than expected and is limited to only 8...

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    Not gonna lie this seems… totally fine? You can pay for the 2 (or I suppose one in one park and another in a park hop scenario) or go rope drop them. I was expecting them to keep the same FP+ tiers, forcing some tough choices even if you paid. This makes the decision to buy relatively easy if...

    News Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser coming to Walt Disney World 2021

    I think people are forgetting that the amount of people able to experience this is gonna be a relatively small % of guests (certainly less than 1%). You're only talking about 75k guests/year or so at 100% occupancy. The price point makes complete sense when you look at how Disney prices...

    News Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser coming to Walt Disney World 2021

    I agree, but if it did run for 10 years successfully that likely will have made them a boatload of profit on the project. That being said, it definitely has to be of primary concern to keep this fresh if they are keeping that price point.

    News Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser coming to Walt Disney World 2021

    It is only a 100 rooms and there will be (at most) 182 voyages per year. That means around 70-75k people per year at an average of 4 per room... Definitely think they will have that many people willing to pay that price tbh. It's a high end experience, and there clearly are plenty of people...

    So at full capacity at least $500,000/"voyage." I'm sure even at the insane price point, there will be plenty of upcharge opportunities, besides the ones expressly laid out on the ite.

    What is the capacity of the Starcruiser? Apologies if it has been answered before.
