Disney Genie+

Disney Genie+ Participating Attraction

Disney Genie+ is a paid service that allows guests to use Walt Disney World’s express line system at select attractions. Guests can choose an available arrival window at participating attractions, one at a time, all day long. During the arrival window, guests head back to the attraction using a separate Lightning Lane* line with shorter wait times than the regular line. Disney Genie+ attraction selections are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are not guaranteed. Disney Genie+ also includes unlimited Disney PhotoPass photo downloads from the day. Disney Genie+ is not valid at Individual Lightning Lane attractions.

* Lightning Lane refers to the name of the line guests using Disney Genie+ and/or Individual Lightning Lane will utilize; however, the two services⁠—Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane⁠—are not the same service. Disney Genie+ is not valid at Individual Lightning Lane attractions, and Individual Lightning Lane is not valid at Disney Genie+ participating attractions.
