You heard me right! Your wish is granted! Get Genie+ for free for a whole day! All you have to do is pre-register as a D23 Gold Member (base level members cannot apply) tomorrow, October 14, 2021, beginning promptly at 1 pm EST. Will you be adding this great membership perk from the largest Disney fan club on earth?
Get Genie+ FOR FREE?
Genie and Genie+ (with Lightning Lane access) will debut on October 19, 2021 for the whole of Walt Disney World Resort. But what if you could add a free day of the $15 service to your plans? If you are a D23 Gold Member, you can do just that! D23 Gold Members were emailed on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, to register in advance for a free day of Genie+ on opening day.
They will need to log into their D23 membership portal AND have a valid Walt Disney World Resort theme park reservation and admission for October 19, 2021. Simply being a D23 Gold Member will not allow you to enable the day-of complimentary service without a ticket.
As a D23 Gold Member, you are invited to register to be one of the first to experience the new Disney Genie service, Disney Genie+ service, and our new Lightning Lane entrances on October 19, 2021 at Walt Disney World Resort! While supplies last, we are offering D23 Gold Members the all-new Disney Genie+ service as a complimentary add-on for the day. You must register as a D23 Gold Member for this offer and must also have a valid Walt Disney World Resort theme park reservation and admission for October 19, 2021 to receive the complimentary Disney Genie+ add-on.*
Once your registration has been confirmed, you will be among the very first to see Disney Genie service in action and receive the all-new Disney Genie+ service as a complimentary add-on for the day.
Many D23 Gold Members found that their membership did not roll over this year and may want to check on their status. Renewals are quick and easy, but you’ll want to make sure everything is up-to-date before logging in tomorrow to register for your complimentary day.
More About Genie and Genie+ Service
The free digital service, built right into the My Disney Experience app, will personalize your Disney day with advice, customized itinerary updates, foodie experiences, and entertainment suggestions. The new service is free with an available upgrade option, confusingly called Genie+. This “plus” option has a flat fee of $15 a person per day of use. A user will be able to have Lightning Lane access (AKA what was previously known as FastPass queue access) for a variety of attractions.
Disney describes Genie and Genie+ service as an enhancement to the Guest experience:
Built right into the My Disney Experience app, Disney Genie service will help you create your best Disney day inspired by your interests and activities. It includes a personalized itinerary feature that saves you time by seamlessly and smartly mapping out your special day with updates that continue from morning to night.
With the purchase of the Disney Genie+ service, you can save time waiting in line. This new service, at more than 40 attractions and experience throughout the Walt Disney World theme parks, lets you select the next available arrival window for our new Lightning Lane entrances. You can make one selection at a time, throughout the day. You may not select the same experience more than once per day, and experience and arrival window selections are limited and subject to availability.
With Disney Genie+ service, you’ll also enjoy new audio tales that let you discover the Parks in cool new ways. Plus, access to exclusive Disney PhotoPass Lenses for your mobile device—allowing you to explore magical new augmented reality effects.
