Disney Parks panel attendees at the 2019 D23 Expo first learned that Genie will soon here to help you with your vacation planning, and you aren’t limited to just three wishes. Disney’s Genie is the latest artificial intelligence system to help guests build their own Walt Disney World vacation as magical as possible.
Unveiled by Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products Chairman Bob Chapek, Genie is here to help seamlessly plan each Disney day whether you are a first-time guest or seasoned pro. You will be given suggested itineraries based on your interests. Do you want to be a Disney Princess in the Magic Kingdom, unleash your inner foodie across the World Showcase at EPCOT, or are you looking to get lost in an adventure at Disney’s Animal Kingdom? Just tell Genie what you want to do, and he will get to work searching through millions of options to optimize your perfect Disney day.
But a Genie understands his job is never done. Even after he delivers an awesome itinerary, Genie will hit you with tips, and updates throughout the day. Again, everything will be catered to the interests you shared with him earlier. Imagine walking around the park and getting a message from Genie reminding you a parade’s about to start or that the wait time for your favorite ride or attractions just dropped significantly, or your favorite Disney Characters just popped up nearby for a Meet n’ Greet. Genie can also help you make dining reservations.
To the avid Disniac, this Genie is the next logical step in Disney’s development in matters of itineraries and immersion. We rock MagicBands, we pass time in line with the Play Disney Parks App, and we use the My Disney Experience app as our hub for everything from FastPass+ and mobile food orders to online check-in at our hotels. Besides, who wouldn’t want their own personal Genie for a day, let alone Aladdin’s Genie of the Lamp?
This amazing vacation planning tool is expected to be released to Disney guests in late 2020. (Which means we have plenty of time to get acquainted with it before the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration).
If you’re looking to plan the ultimate Disney trip, our friends at Academy Travel are standing by to help make your dreams a reality.
