Genie+, Disney

We heard in mid-October that the cost of Genie+ Lightning Lane service at Walt Disney World will now vary based on the date you are visiting. The lowest price for Genie+ will remain at $15 for less busy days, with the maximum cost now rising to $22 (plus tax) per person per day. However, it already seems that Disney is pushing this maximum price higher.

According to a tweet by reporter, Scott Gustin, the cost of Genie+ Lightning Lane will be a massive $29 per person today (Monday, November 21). It appears that the cost of Genie+ Lightning Lane will likely continue to increase and increase as Disney fans continue to pay whatever price necessary.

Disney said that moving to a variable-dated system enables them to better control the demand. From reports online, there have already been a number of days which have seen Genie+ Lightning Lane hitting what was the originally proposed top price of $22 (plus tax) per person. 

It is clearly an exceptionally busy time at Walt Disney World due to Thanksgiving but if this service, on some days, may now cost you $29 per person per day, it means that you will nearly be paying double what you once were when the service cost $15 per person! For a family of four that would be $116 per day compared to $60. This also doesn't include the increased cost if you are wanting to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane.

It will be interesting to see if the approximately 50% take up of Genie+ Lightning Lane which was reported earlier in the year continues as these prices continue to increase at Walt Disney World.
