I know, itís insane to be even contemplating it. But giving Disney an extra £10k for a ďholidayĒ Iím not wanting seems even more so.
Do you think theyíll still even have Genie+ availability the week leading up to Christmas let alone ride availability? 😩😩 ( I know no one has a crystal ball, that bit was rhetorical tbh, Iím just sad and thinking out loud- letís face it, my phone probably wonít even work in the parks so at the end of the day I need to just attempt I.L.Lís perhaps and forget riding anything else) 😭😭

It is only prepaying that you can no longer do, you can still buy it on the day and will have just as much chance as anybody else as getting it.
I only saw June 8th mentioned, made a mental note of that and thought nothing more about it. Was just searching for the UK notification- unfortunately canít find it- not that it makes any difference now.

I appreciate the just as much chance angleÖ but not sure I want to gamble £14k inc resorts on it though. Might end up cutting my losses. I have until October to decide.
Could go to Universal instead I suppose.
Lots to mull over.

If you are not able to stand in the queue then you are probably eligible for the disability access program which provides you a virtual queue access and is free of charge.

You can however still buy genie+ you just need to book it on the day, rather than paying for the whole thing upfront, which depending on the amount of days you spend at Disney may save you money.

I agree with Dan, you sound like you should be eligible for a ride access pass so hopefully you can get that 🤞🏼

As I understand it, not being able to stand for long periods is not a reason for a DAS. They will suggest you hire a wheelchair or ECV.

I have arthritic knees these days and will find it tricky. Planning to use Genie+ and ILL as much as I can, and hire a chair if I find I need one.

It might depend on the reason. I read that Disney are cracking down on this and recommending that people hire scooters if they can't stand in long queues as then they can sit in the queue.

Yes very much depends on the reason why. If it is purely mobility reasons then yes they will suggest to hire a scooter or wheelchair. In which case that is another option as well.

Baring in mind you are very unlikely to get a lot done with Genie+ alone, there would certainly be times you would need to wait in standby if you want to get the majority of attractions done.

Juts paid the balance on Disney tickets from ATD. Had to be paid today to get the Genie+ on them.
