D23 Expo Disney Parks panel attendees learned today that Genie is here to help you with your vacation planning, and you aren’t limited to just three wishes. Disney’s Genie is the latest artificial intelligence system to help guests build their own Walt Disney World vacation as magical as possible.
Unveiled by Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products Chairman Bob Chapek, Genie is here to help seamlessly plan each Disney day whether you are a first-time guest or seasoned pro. You will be given suggested itineraries based on your interests. Do you want to be a princess in the Magic Kingdom, unleash your inner foodie across the World Showcase, or are you looking to get lost in adventure at Disney’s Animal Kingdom? Just tell Genie what you want to do, and he will get to work searching through millions of options to optimize your perfect Disney day.
But a Genie’s job is never done. Even after he delivers an awesome itinerary, Genie will hit you with tips, and updates throughout the day. Again, everything will be catered to the interests you shared with him earlier. Imagine walking around the park and getting a message from Genie reminding you a parade’s about to start or that the wait time for your favorite ride just dropped significantly. Genie can also help you make dining reservations.
To the avid Disniac, this Genie is the next logical step in Disney’s development in matters of itineraries and immersion. We rock MagicBands, we use the MyDisneyExperience app as our hub for everything from FastPass+ and mobile food orders to hotel check-ins. Besides, who wouldn’t want their own personal Genie for a day, let alone Aladdin’s Genie of the Lamp?
This amazing planning tool is expected to be released to Disney guests in late 2020. (Which means we have plenty of time to get acquainted with it before the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration).
If you’re looking to plan the ultimate Disney trip, our friends at Academy Travel are standing by to help make your dreams a reality. Are you excited for Disney’s Genie? Would you use it when you visit the parks? Let us know in the comments!
