Here’s when Disney Genie officially launches

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Walt Disney World has announced that the Disney Genie service will officially launch on Oct. 19 within the My Disney Experience app.

The complimentary service will allow guests to create their best Disney day, including a personalized itinerary creator that helps map out an entire day inspired by the things guests love most.


Disney Genie works similar to a navigation app on your phone, Disney said, and will update your itinerary as the day changes.
