If you are planning on going to Walt Disney World in 2023 tickets, Resort stays and packages will become available for booking starting on June 8th.
You will be able to book your Disney visit through DisneyWorld.com or your preferred travel agent.
On June 8, you will also be able to purchase Genie+ through the My Disney Experience app only on the day of your visit. So no more buying it pre-arrival for dates in 2022 and 2023. Even Annual Passholders will only be allowed to buy the Genie+ add on the day of their trip. If you already purchased it ahead of your trip you are still good to use it.
Disney must be getting complaints because they said this:
“We expect that, on average, guests who purchase Disney Genie+ service will continue to enter 2-3 attractions or experiences each day using the Lightning Lane entrance when the first selection is made early in the day.”
Plus this new “day of only” rule for Genie+ ONLY impacts Walt Disney World guests:
“If you already purchased a ticket that includes Disney Genie+ service for dates later in 2022, don’t worry – you’ll be able to use the service during your visit. Please also note this update is also only happening at Walt Disney World Resort and will not affect guests at Disneyland Resort, as the services vary at each destination.”
Keep all of this in mind if you plan to visit Walt Disney World next year.
It’s odd that they want to stop sales of it ahead. I wonder if people cancel and they are non-refundable if that is causing issues? Or they are going to start limiting the amount? Who knows?
I do know that a lot of people have been less than impressed with the new service and the lines are still terrible, just slightly less terrible if you pay $15 more per person/per day.
