The Walt Disney World Resort is determined to get its Guests properly acquainted with its AI Park day planner, Disney Genie, Genie+, and Individual Lightning Lane, and it recently added a list of tutorial videos to the MyDisneyExperience app in an effort to help Guests learn how to navigate them.

Covering both the complementary and extra-cost side of this optimization tool, the visual aides cover topics from navigating the Disney Genie Tip Boards to accessing Lightning Lane through both Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane. The last video also advertises extra magical features that come with purchasing Genie+, such as special Disney PhotoPass augmented reality lenses and streamlined access to assisting Cast Members via chat.

Since its inception, Disney Genie+ service has been at the heart of controversy among fans, especially regarding Disney’s decision to have it replace the previously complimentary FastPass+ feature. It can be argued that, for many Guests, the only reason Genie+ exists is for its line-skipping Lightning Lane capabilities. But the new videos suggest Disney’s intentions for the system go much further, as well as show a further commitment to eliminating any lingering confusion in differentiating Individual Lightning Lane Options from the Genie+ Lightning Lane selection.

We at Disney Fanatic have continuously covered Genie and Genie+, and this MyDisneyExperience App update follows Disney World’s seemingly sudden decision to keep a certain amount of rides listed on Genie+.  Those attractions include Space Mountain, Frozen Ever After, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Expedition Everest, and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.

Leaders in The Walt Disney Company overall, like CEO Bob Chapek, have continued to route Genie+ and Lightning Lane as a triumph, crediting it with bettering the Guests’ overall experiences and assisting in the prevention of Theme Park ticket price hikes.

Guests can purchase Genie+ at the cost of $15 per person per day with Lightning Lane options available as early as 7:00 am the day of their Disney Park visit, whether that be to Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

We at Disney Fanatic will continue to update our readers on Disney Parks news and stories as more developments come to light.
