Genie+, Disney

Genie+ has been a contentious issue since it debuted in 2021, replacing the free FastPass system which was previously in place at Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Since its launch, Disney has made many updates, all in an attempt to improve the user experience.

Disney has now added a "When you can book" banner at the top of the page which shows you the next available time that you can book a Lightning Lane. This makes it easier and quicker rather than having to navigate to another page to get this information. This change has been made at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

This at least appears to be a positive step forward, especially after the recent change that has been made to Genie+ Lightning Lane for those guests who are park hopping.

It used to be the case that guests could book a time for a Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction in a different park they were hopping to before they got there. This is now not the case, meaning guests can only begin the process of booking a Genie+ Lightning Lane selection for an attraction in the park they are hopping to after 2PM.
