Disney Genie Disneyland

Disney has said ‘goodbye’ to the days of their MaxPass system, but they have not left everyone without a worthy replacement. However, this new system will cost you.

Disney Genie NOW OFFERED at Disneyland Resort

There is a lot of confusion surrounding the new Disney Genie app in the Disney Parks. That is perfectly understandable because not all of the answers have been released yet. When they are, I promise to keep all of you up to date. Those planning a trip through me at Pixie Dust Adventures can always feel free to reach out with any specific questions.
