Disneyland Disney Genie+ Guide!

| | |

Disney Genie+ is launching December 8th at Disneyland! We put together a whole guide to help you navigate the new service!

Without much warning at all, Disney has dropped a bomb tonight. The anticipated Disney Genie+ service is launching at the Disneyland Resort this week! The purpose of this guide is to help you navigate the new service!

Disney Genie service will be available at the Disneyland Resort beginning Dec. 8, 2021. The service is built right into the existing Disneyland app, just like Walt Disney World and the My Disney Experience app. The Disney Genie service offers new features to help Guests create their best Disney day. With the Disneyland app, Guests should be sure to download the latest version and make sure that their notification and location services are turned on so they can get the most out of the app’s features.

The new service will include:

**Complimentary Disney Genie Features

At the heart of the Disney Genie service are features like a personalized itinerary creator inspired by the things you tell us you love, helping Guests make the most of their park time so they can have more fun! Guests can tell Disney Genie their favorite things – foodie experiences, must-do attractions, Super Heroes or princesses – experiences that make their Disneyland Resort day special, and Disney Genie does all the work to suggest fun options tailored to each Guest.

The Disney Genie service will also offer great additional features like a personal tip board to see attractions and dining options in one central place, and forecasted future attraction wait times, helping Guests predict the best time to visit during the day.

These features are created to help Guests spend less time waiting in line, so they can enjoy more of what they love. What’s more, Disney Genie service even works around existing plans, like dining reservations!

Similar to a navigation app on a phone, Disney Genie does all the work behind the scenes and updates itineraries continually from morning to night so Guests can stay spontaneous and make the most of their time in the parks!

**Ability to Access the new Lightning Lane Entrance

For Guests that have been to the Disneyland Resort lately, they may have noticed some new signs being installed for Lightning Lane entrances at a number of popular attractions. The Lightning Lane offers the convenience of saving Guests time waiting in line. Lightning Lane entrance can be accessed for select attractions two ways:
