Walt Disney World Moves Three Rides to Genie Plus

February 25, 2022, 1:27 AM · The Walt Disney World Resort is making another tweak to its new line-skipping upcharge plans.

Starting today, three popular attractions are moving from the Individual Lightning Lane plan to the Disney Genie+ plan. The three attractions making the switch are:

That means visitors no longer will have to pay $7-15 per ride to skip the main, standby queues at these attractions and instead can get the shorter, Lightning Lane access by buying the Disney Genie+ upgrade, which provides Lightning Lane access to multiple attractions for one charge of $15 per day.

The change for these attractions will remain through August 7. This leaves one attraction at each of the four Walt Disney World theme parks still on the Individual Lightning Lane plan: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Avatar Flight of Passage, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

Expedition Everest at Disney's Animal Kingdom also has been an Individual Lightning Lane attraction in the past, but it is down for an extended refurbishment at this time. When it comes back, Disney will decide which plan to assign it.

This is a welcome change, because lots of people have been complaining (esp. on message boards) about insufficient capacity on Genie +.
