Genie, Genie+, and Lightning Lane Restored Following Walt Disney World Website and App Maintenance

Overnight, the website and mobile app for Walt Disney World underwent maintenance. This morning, some aspects of the My Disney Experience app were not functioning, but all offerings have been restored.

The maintenance began at midnight this morning. Guests reported that Genie, Genie+, and Lightning Lane were unavailable. Guests also reported issues with park pass reservations. As of 9:00 a.m., everything seems to be available and working fine.

Did the downtime affect you? Let us know in the comments.

Disney Genie, Genie+, and Lightning Lane

Disney Genie service logo

Disney Genie is a free feature that launched in October 2021 at Walt Disney World. Disney Genie+ and Lightning Lane are the paid program that replaced FastPass+.

When Genie+ first launched, the service was available at a flat rate of $15 per person, per day. Last year’s switch to date-based pricing saw a new high price of $22 — which Disney noted was the highest it would go in October, implying the even higher rates that have now come to pass.

Individual Lightning Lane prices have always been on a date-based basis, but the maximum was formerly $20. Since the update to the pricing scale for Genie+, rates for Individual Lightning Lane have been rising as well.
