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.
We’ve already briefly explained the free part of Disney Genie and Disney Genie+. Now, let’s talk about Individual Lightning Lanes.
With Individual Lightning Lane, you will pay to skip the Standby Line for one attraction. The cost ranges from $7 to $20, although that could change. Expect weekends and busy times of the year such as a holiday to cost more.
When you purchase Individual Lightning Lane, everyone who is riding will need to purchase it. It is not one purchase for your whole party.
In Disney California Adventure, there are two rides that you can purchase Individual Lightning Lane for. They are Radiator Springs Racers and WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure.
There is currently only one ride at Disneyland Park that uses Individual Lightning Lane. That is Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Galaxy’s Edge. If you’re interested buy this one early, because it often sells out.
Each ride still has a Standby Line. At the time of this writing, there are no Virtual Queues, but they could return on busy days. The Virtual Queue would replace the Standby Line, it would not affect the Individual Lightning Lane.
You can purchase Individual Lightning Lane for each ride once per day. For example, if you buy it for Radiator Springs Racers and decide you want to ride a second time, you’ll have to wait in the Standby Line.
