Genie+ CHANGE Hits Disney World

Genie+ has changed in an important way and you need to know about it!


We’ve seen Genie+ change quite a bit since it was first introduced. Back in December, Genie+ changed so you can modify selections, which has impacted the 120-minute rule in a key way. But now another change has hit the system.

Guests purchasing Disney Genie+ service will now receive some added pixie dust. As of March 20th, 2023, guests who purchase Disney Genie+ will also get FREE digital PhotoPass downloads for attraction photos taken on the day of their purchase!

Keep in mind this change is only for ATTRACTION photos — meaning you won’t get all of your PhotoPass photos for free, only the ones taken on/during Disney World rides. There are quite a few attractions that feature on/during ride photos like Space Mountain, Test Track, and more.

This could be a great added perk that’ll make the cost feel a little more “worth it” to you, particularly if you love those on-ride photos.

While the perk officially began today, Scott Gustin (via Twitter) shared that some individuals who bought Genie+ in the past few weeks have been able to go back and download their attraction photos from those previous days on which they purchased Genie+.

One of our team members also checked and was able to download images from 2 previous days that they purchased Genie+. Photos taken on previous days when they had NOT purchased Genie+, however, remained only viewable with the PhotoPass watermark (a.k.a. not downloadable for free). Another one of our team members’ family members was able to do the same but was unable to access on-ride videos for free with this perk. Be sure to check and see what the situation is like for you.

So if you’ll be buying Genie+ soon, be sure to check out those on-ride photos from the days that you do. And stay tuned for more Genie+ news!
