The Multi-Park Disney Genie+ option is completely sold out at Walt Disney World despite it reaching its highest price point of the year so far. Guests can still purchase Disney Genie+ for all of the four individual theme parks, with the prices being as follows:

  • Magic Kingdom – $35
  • EPCOT – $28
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios – $32
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom – $25

The Multi-Park option was priced at $35 on Monday, February 19, before selling out. Guests can purchase Disney Genie+ for a specific park or purchase the Multi-Park option, allowing them to make Lightning Lane reservations at all four theme parks. This option is usually costlier than simply buying a single park, though it typically matches the price for Magic Kingdom, which remains the most expensive park at Walt Disney World on a consistent basis.

All four Walt Disney World theme parks are just a few dollars under the record-setting price points of the 2023 Christmas season, with Individual Lightning Lane prices at their highest levels.

Disney Genie service officially launched in 2021 at the Walt Disney World Resort, with the new systems making their way into the Disneyland Resort shortly after. Along with Disney Genie came Genie+ and Lightning Lanes, all three of which were introduced as a way to help guests navigate and plan out their day at the Disney theme parks. Disney Genie itself is free, with guests accessing the service through the My Disney Experience smartphone application.

However, for a price, guests may upgrade to Disney Genie+, granting them access to receive services and features, like the ability to make Lightning Lane reservations for select Walt Disney World rides and attractions. The price of upgrading to Disney Genie+ changes day-to-day, with the more popular times of the year, such as Halloween, Christmas, and New Year’s, seeing the highest Genie+ price points.

Guests using Disney Genie+ will still need to use the Virtual Que system for newer experiences like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT and TRON Lightcycle / Run at Magic Kingdom. It’s likely that the new Tiana’s Bayou Adventure attraction will also use the Virtual Queue system when it opens this summer at Magic Kingdom.

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure looks to be a promising addition to Frontierland in Magic Kingdom, replacing the park’s legendary Splash Mountain log flume rude. Disney has been quite vague regarding details about the ride, keeping the interior section of the ride under wraps. However, fans recently got a first look at a new Tiana animatronic that will be present on the ride, which looks to be as smooth and fluid as the Shaman animatronic on Na’vi River Journey in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
