Genie+ Multiple Parks Attraction Selections Now Available to All Guests Regardless of Park Reservation Status

    Following up on an article from a few days ago, Disney World has adjusted the Genie+ system to allow for all guests, regardless of ticket type, to be able to make selections at all theme parks when purchasing the “Multiple Parks” option. First, a bit of background before we get into the recent change.

    Due to the way the Genie+ system used to interact with the Disney Park Pass system, some guests found that they could not make Genie+ attraction selections at a theme park that was not their reserved park until they tapped into their initial park. Guests with a ticket type that does not require a Disney Park Pass theme park reservation were not affected.

    As an example, if you had a ticket type that required a Disney Park Pass theme park reservation for a particular day, say EPCOT, you would not be able to make a Genie+ attraction selection for any other theme park until you physically tapped into EPCOT.

    On the backend, Park Hopping is not unlocked on your ticket type until you tap into your first park when Disney Park Pass reservations are required. Therefore, when Genie+ looks at your ticket type to ensure that you have a Park Hopping entitlement at the moment you try to make an attraction selection, if you hadn’t tapped into your reserved park, Genie+ would not allow you to make an attraction selection at any park other than your reserved park.

    It’s a bit of an edge case, but some guests did run into that restriction. Now, Disney says that the restriction has been removed, and any guests who have purchased the “Multiple Parks” Genie+ option will be able to make attraction selections at any of the four Walt Disney World theme parks starting at 7am.

    1. So we have an upcoming trip in April and were curious, as we have 2 park hopper days – if we are starting in one park, but plan to exclusively use Genie+ for the second park -in this case start at Epcot and jump to MK by noon, do we have to get the multi park Genie+ or just the MK genie+, and if the latter, can we start loading up our MK ride reservations while still in Epcot?

      • If you only want to make Genie+ selections in Magic Kingdom, you’ll want to only purchase for Magic Kingdom, even if your ticket type allows you to visit more than one park. You’ll only have to purchase the Multiple Parks option if you want to make Genie+ selections in more than one park on a single day
