Switch to Genie + Lightning Lane selection extended indefinitely at Walt Disney World

UPDATE August 4 – Disney has made the decision to extend a number of attractions currently in the Genie + Lightning Lane selection indefinitely. In May, we learned that Disney had made the following decision:

Until August 7, 2022, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Frozen Ever After, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure (begins May 31, 2022), Space Mountain and Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain will be included through the Disney Genie+ service and will only be not included as individual Lightning Lane input selections.

The original plan was for these attractions to return to Individual Lightning Lane after August 7, but now information about this has been removed from the official site showing that they will remain in the Genie + Lightning Lane selection as part of the $15 per person and per day. the foreseeable future.

The only attractions that are currently offered through Individual Lightning Lanes are:

  • Seven Dwarfs Mining Train (Magic Kingdom)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind (EPCOT)
  • Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (Disney’s Hollywood Studios)
  • Avatar Flight of Passage (Disney’s Animal Kingdom)

We’ll keep you posted on any other changes to the Genie+ Lightning Lane selection on our news and Facebook page.

Genie+, Disney

May 18 – Disney occasionally makes changes to attractions in the Genie+ Lightning Lane line and we heard this week that from May 31 Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT will be added to the Genie+ line, which means it will no longer be accessible with Individual Lightning Lane.

So, starting May 31, Guardians of The Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be the only Individual Lightning Lane attraction at EPCOT.

This move from Individual Lightning Lane to Genie+ is confirmed for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure until at least August 7, when Disney will decide whether to revert to Individual Lightning Lane or keep it in the Genie+ selection.

On May 31, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will join the other attractions that have been moved from Individual Lightning Lane selections to Genie + Lightning Lane, as shown in the quote below from the official Walt Disney World website:

Until August 7, 2022, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Frozen Ever After, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure (begins May 31, 2022), Space Mountain and Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain will be included through the Disney Genie+ service and will only be not included as individual Lightning Lane input selections.

When Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure opened in 2021, there was a virtual queue and an individual lightning lane was made available. The virtual queue was then closed, meaning guests could wait in line or choose to purchase Individual Lightning Lane. Beginning May 31, customers wishing to skip the lines for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will need to purchase the Genie+ service at $15 per person and hope to secure a slot for the attraction.
