Disney Genie Available for Disneyland Guests Starting Dec. 8, 2021

Disney Genie Service at Walt Disney World

Disney Genie service, which as been available at Walt Disney World since Oct 19, will now be available in the Disneyland app as of December 8, 2021.

Disney Genie+ will also be available, offering access to Lightning Lane Entrances for most attractions for $20 per person, per day.

While it costs $5 more than Walt Disney World’s version, the Disneyland Genie+ purchase includes unlimited Photopass downloads for that day.

Currently three attractions will be available for Individual Lightning Lane Entrance Selection, ranging in cost from $7 to $20 per guest per attraction with a max of 2 purchases per day.

These are Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Disneyland Park, and Radiator Springs Racers and Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure in Disney California Adventure Park.

Another major difference is at Disneyland, guests cannot begin booking either Genie+ or Individual Lightning Lane Entrance Selections until they have entered a theme park for the day.

At Walt Disney World, Disney Genie+ bookings open up at 7am daily. Individual Lightning Lane Selection also opens at 7am for on-property hotel guests, and at official park opening time to all others.

Disneyland - Genie

It’ll be interesting to see how Disneyland park guests utilize the Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane Selection differences, especially since the two park gates are just a short walk from each other, and park hopping starts at 1pm.

Will you be using Disney Genie or Genie+ on your next Disneyland trip? Let us know in comments.
