John's Travel Update August 5, 2022

Did you miss me? I took a week "off" to enjoy a (very) needed vacation with my family in Cape Cod. We had a wonderful time building wonderful memories doing what we love most: TRAVELING! Let's get started on this week's travel update!

Changes To Genie+ Line Up At Walt Disney World

Although we will never know the reason behind it - Walt Disney World has announced that they will only have FOUR attractions remain as "Individual Lightning Lane" purchases - which makes Genie+ a more valuable tool for your vacation!

Until further notice - the following attractions will remain as a Genie+ selection:

  • Magic Kingdom Park: Space Mountain

  • EPCOT: Frozen Ever After; Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure

  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway

  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain

As a reminder, the purchase of Disney Genie+ service is available in addition to a standby entrance. Disney Genie+ is now only offered for purchase through the My Disney Experience app on the day of visit.

Speaking Of Genie...

One of the biggest challenges for my clients to Walt Disney World (and a lesser extent - Disneyland) is understanding HOW Genie/Genie+/Individual Lightning Lane works. Once you get the hang of it: it's great! However - there's a bit of a learning curve.

Luckily, Disney has "listened" to guest feedback and released a series of videos on HOW to use the service. CLICK HERE to watch these videos.
