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

I'm going to guess that since so many people are slamming into the system all at once (regardless of how prepared Disney was for it) that it's causing glitches all over the place. Some people are seeing no availability while others are seeing availability. Some people are seeing availability later in the afternoon while others are seeing it in the morning. One person I know has already texted me this morning and said that after installing the update they have no more reservations. Their entire park reservations aren't showing up. Good job Disney IT!

They showed as closed for me just now. Closed the app and reopened and they still show as closed.
Literally just now.

Just poking around...Why when I check my dates in the my day section does it say for the 27th of December I can make reservations in 1 day? I leave in 69 days. 9 days from now I can mke dining reservations for entire length of stay (up to 10 days). It also shows this for the 28th (2 days) etc. I though I have to wait 9 days from now and make reservations for my entire length of stay.

EDIT...I think its basing it on making a day of reservation.

2 quick questions.......

1) Can you choose your return time for IAS purchase?
2) for SDMT, where it says window starts at 1pm, does that mean people bought all the availability prior to 1pm already?
Re: #2 I posted some screenshots where ROTR went from later than 2pm and then back to 10am. So... Who knows?

Slinky Dog shows 4:25pm availability now where as 20 minutes ago it showed 5:30pm. Perhaps this confirms they will scatter availability.

It is interesting if the availability times show differently for each guest as their party size might be different. A party of 2 might get on at noon whereas a party of 6 might have to wait until 3pm etc..

Maybe they are saving it for Genie+ MAX which for an additional fee, on top of an additional fee, on top of an additional fee, will allow you to name your own return time.

By selecting refresh I was able to see a 12:45pm return for slinky after first seeing a 5:25pm.

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).
