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

    Despite the recent change which I hate also, my experience with Genie + was also a good one. But that is because I became familiar with it from this forum and other social media sites on how to use it. I was able to do things I had never ever once been able to do in other trips, like go on...

    You would think that if they are capping Genie + sales so that they do not run out of ride inventory so quick, itll mean the only scramble would be purchasing Genie + during the midnight rush and not worrying so much about ride availability since now everyone will be able to get rhe rides they...

    WDW is not designed to handle this type of system (Premier Access like Paris). too many parks, too many attractions. Bundling rides for a set price is better of the two evils.

    Well, they also said Genie + will never sell out. That changed. I actually do not see any logical reason for doing this other then Flexible pricing. At least when everyone had the option to purchase it, for those who wanted to buy it the day of they can at 6:45 AM before they make their...

    Resort guests who want to purchase in advance or as part of their package for assurance and less money while in WDW are now forced to wait until day of. This is a terrible idea. All around. For so many reasons. At least when I went, since I had learned the ins and outside of Genie + and all its...

    Aside from this opening the door for Disney to change the price of Genie + on a select day/days, it now means people will have to wake up at midnight the day of to purchase Genie + to avoid losing out (on and off site guests). So now its a mad scramble to buy Genie + at midnight and a mad...

    As soon as GOG opens end of May and Tron opens, Frozen and Space would have moved anyway to Genie +. It is less incentive until then though for resort guests who had 7am priveleges for the ILLs. Now they have 4 instead of 8.

    This change happened during the holidays. I was happy to save money (aside from the $15) and go on all 4 rides with Genie + or standby. It does open up more availability being one more ride to choose from.

    Agree with this. Also, for me at least, the total time saved is what I measure the value I got out of Genie +. The ILL's really are worth it during busy weeks/days also. We saved a lot more time then any other trip.

    You are not allowed to pick out some flaws. You have to hate it entirely. 😛

    I got charged more. But I also did ride more. I purchased the line skipping product. That's what I paid for. Was there ever a trip that you took where you can walk onto Soarin and TT and save 2 hours of your day? Or SDD and Rise and save 4 hours? No question it cost money to do that, but to...

    I know equally as many people who got their money's worth and did not have issues as people who hated it. For the record.

    How can you tell me it's a lie when I experienced it? Every day every park I rode no less then 4 rides with Genie +. And 3 of the 4 involved multiple rides that were previously "tier 1" with free FP+. You are not wrong in some of your claims and complaints. But you make it seem as if there are...

    While some of what you say is definitely true, you are still making it much worse then it is. I was there the busiest week of the year and was able to do things with Genie + that past trips I never was able to accomplish in a day. Like riding Soarin and Test Track and going on Remy all in the...

    Focusing on Rise first I bought that right at 7am for 6pm. I knew SDD would show up at around 7:10 am like it always does with some availability for later in the day (although not for long). I was able to get SDD for 3:45-4:45 as my first Genie + choice that way also. This was New Years week...
