Disney Genie

October 6, 2021

The Disney Genie is here!

What a month! “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” at Walt Disney World Resort is in full swing, as they kicked off the 50th anniversary festivities on Oct. 1 with all-new experiences and countless magical moments. Now, the Disney team launched another major milestone: the Disney Genie! The Disney Genie launched for all guests at Walt Disney World on October 19 in the My Disney Experience app. The complimentary service offers new features that let guests create their BEST Disney day!

These features include:

  • Personalized itinerary creator to enhance the already planned activities/dining that a Magical Memory Maker will take care of for you

  • Maps out an entire day inspired by the things guests tell their team that they love

Disney Genie updates your itinerary throughout the day during your vacation. You can "stay spontaneous" or "go with the flow" depending on your mood that day! We all know how quickly things can change while you're at the parks, from toddler meltdowns to nap time; the Disney Genie will account for your mood and update as the day continues!


Behind the scenes, the app is capable of magically evaluating thousands of possible itineraries in seconds. The app puts YOU at the center of the experience by prioritizing ways to:

  • Reduce time in lines while keeping your top picks

  • Pace the day with experiences you will enjoy

  • Build around existing plans like Dining reservations and Park Hopper preferences

With this launch, Disney has also introduced the LIGHTNING LANE!

Available for purchase through the Disney Genie+ add-on at more than 40 attractions – or individually, “a la carte” at some of the most highly demanded attractions – the Lightning Lane entrance can save you time waiting in line.
