Disney Genie is a tool that is designed to help you make the most of your day at Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort. The Disney World version rolled out in October, 2021, while the Disneyland version went live the following December.
There are some differences between what you can do with Disney Genie at Walt Disney World and at Disneyland. This series is about the Disneyland version.
Disney Genie is free, and part of the Disneyland App. There are some paid features, which we will talk about in other parts of this series.
There are two main parts to the free features of Disney Genie. They are the Tip Board and My Genie Day. You will need a Disney Park Pass Reservation to access My Genie Day. The Tip Board is something that you can see any time.
With My Genie Day, you will put in your likes and preferences. You will include things such as if you want to see characters, love ‘Star Wars’, or like thrill rides. You can also add what type of dining you prefer.
From there, Disney Genie will generate a plan for you. It will suggest what to ride or experience and when, as well as the best time to eat. If you don’t like a suggestion, you can easily change it for another.
My Genie Day will update often so that all the information is current.
The Tip Board, not surprisingly, offers tips. You can see current Standby Wait Times. Show Times are listed as well. Pick a ride from the list, and it will have estimated Wait Times throughout the day.
One thing to keep in mind, the default for the Tip Board is Disneyland Park, even if you’re in Disney California Adventure.
Disney Genie can be a useful tool when visiting the Disneyland Resort. A word of warning, it tends to drain your battery, so it’s a good idea to have a backup charger with you.
