Here’s How to Get FREE Disney Genie+ on Oct. 19

by | Oct 13, 2021 | WDW Blog, WDW News

The paid Genie+ system officially launches on Oct. 19, but as an exclusive gift to D23 Gold Members, Disney is offering free Disney Genie+ access on th inaugural day to those who register ahead of time.

Disney Genie+ officially marks the end of an era: Free FastPasses have gone to the graveyard of Haunted Mansion, and instead, we get the privilege of paying for the new Lightning Lane equivalent, Genie+. Genie+ costs $15 per day per person for access to Lightning Lanes, allowing you to avoid standby lines.

But what if you don’t want to pay for Genie+? You don’t have to. You’ll just have to stand in the traditional queue like the olden days. Or, on Oct. 19, you can get free Disney Genie+ service if you’re a Gold Member of D23.

How to Get Free Disney Genie+

D23 Gold Members received an email this afternoon offering free usage of the Genie+ service. Registration opens at 1 PM ET on Thursday, Oct. 14, 2021. To be able to get this complimentary access to Disney Genie+, you’ve got to have a valid Park Pass on Oct. 19,a nd you’ve got to be a D23 Gold Member.

The email that D23 Gold Members received today

If this describes you, hurry now and register before it’s too late. Disney is branding this as a LIMITED opportunity, so it’s not clear if every D23 Gold Member will be able to receive a free Disney Genie+ trial.

Not going to Disney World on Oct. 19 or just simply not a D23 Gold Member? You’ll still be able to pay for Genie+ whenever you visit. And chances are good that Disney will run other promotions with free Genie+ down the road.

How to Become a D23 Gold Member

Being a Gold Member of D23 gets you plenty of perks:

  • The D23 Gold Member Collector Set
