We previously shared the news that beginning August 7, 2022, several current Disney Genie+ attractions would become part of the Individual Lightning Lane selections. Now, it seems like Disney has changed its mind!

Previously, Walt Disney World’s website noted several popular Disney Genie+ attractions would be dropped from the list of rides available to Guests purchasing the $15 per person, per day Disney Genie+ service beginning August 7. The service allows Guests to skip the standby line for two or three attractions at a Disney Park.

The fear was that with the most popular attractions all being dropped from Disney Genie+, the already questionable value of the service would dwindle even further.

We’re thrilled to hear that instead of all the popular attractions switching to a la carte, individual Lightning Lane purchases, the following attractions will remain part of Disney Genie+ including:

  • Space Mountain (Magic Kingdom)
  • Frozen Ever After (EPCOT)
  • Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure (EPCOT)
  • Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway (Disney’s Hollywood Studios)
  • Expedition Everest (Disney’s Animal Kingdom)

With Disney changing its mind, this means the only individual Lightning Lane attractions currently available will continue to be:

  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (Magic Kingdom)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind (EPCOT) – also available via Virtual Queue
  • Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (Disney’s Hollywood Studios)
  • Avatar Flight of Passage (Disney’s Animal Kingdom)

Now, Disney’s website simply notes, “Experiences offered (subject to change without notice*).” We will be sure to keep Disney Fanatic readers updated as Disney makes changes to Disney Genie+ and individual Lightning Lane experiences.
