A Disney Genie+ Feature That You Might Be Missing

Disney Genie has been live at Walt Disney World for several weeks now, and the new service has received a lot of complaints. Many Guests find the free part of Disney Genie confusing, and no one likes to have to pay for Lightning Lane when FastPass used to be free. There is one part of Disney Genie+ that many Guests don’t even know about, and they are missing out.

Disney Genie+ is an extra within Disney Genie. For $15 per person, per day, you can make Lightning Lane reservations, which will allow you to skip the Standby Line. The system is not without flaws.

If you want to get your money’s worth with Disney Genie+, you need to check out the Disney PhotoPass Lenses. These are included with the paid service.

Using augmented reality technology, the PhotoPass lenses allow you to take pictures that are not physically possible. You could stand in front of the 25th Anniversary Birthday Cake Castle, or maybe you want to become the Genie. Those are just two of the possible filters, and there are videos as well as still photos.

After you purchase Disney Genie+, you will have access to the lenses as soon as you enter a Park. Make sure you download your photos right away, because they will be available for only 45 days. Purchasing Disney Genie+ at Walt Disney World includes only the augmented reality photos, it does not include the rest of your PhotoPass pictures.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
