Ever wish you had your very own GENIE to take care of you? Well, that’s pretty much the idea behind the new Disney Genie, a digital offering that will soon be available for Walt Disney World guests!
This upcoming offering was originally announced at the D23 Expo in 2019, and Disney has shared that the Disney Genie “is being designed to help you make the most out of your visit, whether you’re a first-time guest or a seasoned pro.” The Disney Genie is intended to be especially helpful for guests who don’t have the time to plan, want to try something new, or simply don’t enjoy the planning process.
While the My Disney Experience app provides plenty of tools for advance planning (along with several features for use in Disney World), the Disney Genie will provide customized itineraries with just a few taps on your smartphone. Guest-specific interests will even play a role, as Disney has stated that the itineraries will be able to focus on everything “from a royal, princess-themed day at Magic Kingdom Park to a trip around the world at Epcot for foodies and even a perfect day for thrill seekers.”
Guests will be able to “tell” the Genie their wishes, too. Inform the Genie of what you’d most like to do, and you’ll be presented with options to optimize your time. Disney Genie will make personalized recommendations based on which park you’re visiting and nearby experiences. The feature will inform about estimated wait times at attractions, as well as your suggested arrival from your current location.
And if your day changes… why, the Genie can change, too! You’ll be able to receive a new itinerary whenever you need. Real-time tips, updates, and recommendations will be provided, and the Disney Genie will even be able to assist with any needed reservations for your whole group!
Disney has also stated that “Certain features of Disney Genie will also be available through your preferred travel professional.”
