Bookings for the Disney Wish are open if you are interested in sailing on Disney Cruise Line's latest ship!
Disney has announced their Fastpass+ replacement at Disney World and Disneyland. With options ranging from free (Disney Genie) to paid (Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane Access), minimizing your wait times has potentially gotten a lot more complicated. We break down what we know about the new system so far and what you need to know if you're planning a trip this fall or beyond.
What remaining questions do you have for Disney Genie+? What are your thoughts on the system overall? Let us know your experience by e-mailing disneydeciphered AT gmail DOT com, messaging us on Twitter, or leaving a comment on our Facebook page!
