Disney Genie and Genie+ at Walt Disney World

I’d like to just point out that this is a good change. Everyone here will have the ability to purchase Genie+ the night before; it’s not going to sell out that quickly. The issue was too many people purchasing it in advance and people purchasing it late morning after arriving to the parks. If the limits they set are reasonable, this has a real shot of being a great experience.
This is NOT a good change, this is a TERRIBLE change

Now you have to be fast finger at midnight AND 7am


What is good about that?

Royal Caribbean is actually looking pretty good. We have 3 very young children to consider, so probably not Celebrity.
How young?

I advocate Disney for younger kids. None of the others have as nice of things for kids…once you get to the 10+ range, the value is much better on the other lines.

I think you’ll enjoy any of them - however.

I really doubt G+ will be sold out before 7am.

If they divide the G+ supply into 4 buckets, one for MK, EC, HS, and AK; no way those all get filled right away.
There could even be more buckets (8 total), those with park hoppers. But I doubt this is how it actually is, instead it's just 1 big ol bucket.

For my Christmas 2021 trip, I woke up daily around 6:40am. Got breakfast and bought G+. Then started making plans of what my first LL would be and headed for the parks. I just really don't see a reason to stay up until 12am to buy G+.

Why make it MORE difficult on people? The problem has been that thee process is terrible and this just adds more steps at worse times

That isn't how this is going to work. There is always going to be a rat race at 7am for the popular attractions. The issue is that people who entered the park at 9, 10, 11 are purchasing it and eating up all the other attractions too and then by the time you're ready to book your next attraction, there is nothing left. There won't be issues purchasing Genie+ the night before.

This also isn't the only change that is coming. This is really just to alleviate the horrible experience that is Genie+ right now. The more significant changes are going to be surveyed to guests first and then implemented early next year.
 
Great...I am going in early January. I get to be the guinea pig for this ing disaster. Do I have to buy it at midnight then get up again at 6:45? Or do I have to get up at 6:45am and try to beat everyone else to buy it, then try to beat everyone else to reserve a good ride?

Its all so stressful. We need more details on how this is going to work.

any chance they allow AP holders with resort reservations to book in advance as well? like for me i have 2 room reservations booked already purchased mine and my daughters but my mom is in her room but an AP and cant book prior.... now in theory there is a chance we have it and she would not.....
