Genie+ Gets Another Surprising Update


Disney fans have been sharing some very strong opinions about the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort service called Genie+, which is an add-on that Disney Guests must buy (as opposed to the general Genie service) — and most of these opinions have been negative ones. The Genie service has apparently been so unappealing that Disney is actually being sued over it — but a new update has just been announced that might change some Genie+ customers’ minds!

According to journalists Scott Gustin and Ashley Carter, Genie+ will now allow Guests to alter Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations and bookings without forcing customers to cancel and rebook the reservations manually. This will make the usage of Genie+ more convenient, and the change will arrive within the next week.

According to Scott Gustin, “Genie+ will soon add the ability to modify Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations without needing to cancel and rebook” and “the change will happen when the app is updated in the next week (for both iOS and Android)”.

In addition, Guests “will also be able to make changes to [their] party size during modification.” However, this update and improvement will not involve Individual Lightning Lane bookings.

Journalist Ashley Carter shared the same news about the Disney Genie service add-on (which had been seeing substantial price increases until recently), adding that “with this change, [Guests will] be able to search for other available attractions or arrival windows.”

This update will therefore make it easier for Disney World or Disneyland Guests and Genie+ customers to pick better reservation times and ride times that will be better suited to their Disney vacations, without having to sacrifice the Genie+ reservations that they currently have.
