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.

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.
