BREAKING: Variable Pricing Introduced for Disney Genie+ at Walt Disney World, Now Can Be $22 Per Guest, Per Day OR HIGHER

With the change to varied, date-based pricing, the price for the Disney Genie+ service has also increased. The lowest price remains $15, but the service currently can run as high as $22 per person, per day.

Disney also noted that these prices are for the month of October and are “subject to change beyond that.” This means that prices may increase even further, likely as we approach the busy holiday season.

  1. Disney has lost it’s damn mind. What used to be my favorite place in the whole world is now not. I actually have no desire to visit anytime soon. The magic is gone. Everything Disney was when I was growing up is gone. Annual passes are not being renewed and vacation club is being sold. No thanks Disney.

  2. Bob Chapek runs Disney like it’s his own personal piggy bank. It’s a wonder there aren’t statues of him replacing Walt in the park at this point. So much for affording things on my first trip ever next week.

  3. I guess they really don’t want average guests to visit.Disney becoming like low cost airlines with extra fees but with extra premium pricing for same experience.

  4. We were there a few weeks ago and decided to forgo Genie+. There were really only a few rides with lines so long we didn’t want to wait (Rise of the Reistance was 2 hours for example). $25/person extra just seems overly expensive.

  5. I never have (And never will) bought Genie+ so once again, Disney is going to price themselves out of the market.
    And by variable pricing I love how it can be as low as $15. But that’s like saying tickets can be as low as $106. Except they are only that price one day per year.

  6. I made a comment earlier today about Disney. I am totally fed up with Disney. All it is now is a total money grab. I will never support this kingdom any further, it’s now to the point that Disney is trying to figure out the highest price point that they can charge, certainly not caring about the family experience. A family of four will probably cost $750 to eat a meal ,park and go to this park for the day. That’s for one day!!!! What a vacation for middle and lower class folks. Nothing magical in my eyes!!! Will not support them in any manner any longer. Let the upper class support them.

  7. That is ridiculous. Disney has lost a regular vacationer who spent lots of money and many short stays.
    Who can afford it? Not me. I can stay at an all inclusive for less.

  8. I still can’t understand how they are charging us more and giving us less than we got with Fast Pass. Everyone used to get 3 Fast Passes with your tickets and now you have to pay to get 1 Lightning Lane at a time. It’s ridiculous really.

  9. Disney this will be the last time that I will go to your park your prices are out of line!!! I used to think it was a good deal and didn’t mind to pay a little bit more but this is getting way out of control.

  10. I’ve been a vacation club member for 15 years. I’m paying over $268 per month to keep membership. May family has totally enjoyed our yearly vacations, but I’m seriously considering an end to going to Disney again. No more free transportation to the hotels; no baggage service to your door; no more dining plan; and no more fast passes. It’s just becoming much too outrageously expensive to take the family.

  11. Lightening lane is ruining the every person experience. Today we had a “60 minute “ wait for the Mickey and Minnie Runaway that took 1 hour and 45 minutes but was a walk on for a lot of lightening lane people. We had a repeat on Toy Story Mania. No point in trying anything else.

    • I’m a stick holder and we have actually been loosing money on our stock. “Paycheck” is not making money for stock holders either!

  12. My wife and I are vacation club owners. We have had annual passes for many years. We are also retired. We take several trips each year to WDW. Our last trip was in June and we took our granddaughter along. With the cost of her park tickets plus Genie + along with the cost of food that you have to order yourself on your phone enough is enough. Congratulations Disney you have finally broken us. As retired people we can no longer afford to renew our annual passes or keep up with all of the extras you charge to come to over crowed over priced parks.

  13. Unlike many here, I came late to Disney parks as an 40 something adult with my wife to be on my first trip. I was blown away 10 years ago with the Disney customer service and care they took in the small things and loved the parks. Fast forward a few years and we’re planning and getting married at WDW. Fast forward again to today’s Disney parks and the joy is gone. The attention to the customer experience details is gone. I get nickeled and dimed for everything now and it’s not even as nice as it was 10 years ago, heck not even 5. The 50th clinched it. Comparing just the pictures of the WDW 25th and DLR 50th vs the shiny merch and cupcakes of the 50th just doesn’t compare. They used new attractions as new special events and couldn’t even manage to get some of them on line in time (Tron). Chapek is just doing what the board of directors wants him to do to make money in the next quarter. He wants his own stock options badly to be able to become chairman of the board and CEO, but that only happens by giving what the board wants so that they will give him stock payouts.
