2023 Disney World Packages Available To Book June 8, Plus Genie+ Purchase Change

If you’re already thinking about booking a Walt Disney World vacation in 2023, you can do so beginning in early June!

Disney announced on May 18 that Disney World will open bookings for theme park tickets, Disney Resort hotel stays, and packages for visits in 2023 beginning June 8, 2022.

Throughout 2023, Early Theme Park Entry will remain available to Disney Resort hotel guests.

Early Theme Park Entry allows Disney Resort Guests (as well as guests from other select hotels) the opportunity to enter any of the 4 theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios) 30 minutes before non-Disney Resort guests.

That’s not the only news Disney recently announced, either.

Starting June 8, Disney Genie+ will only be available to purchase through the My Disney Experience app on the day of your visit.

This means, beginning June 8 (and for the remaining dates in 2022 and in 2023), you will no longer have the option to purchase Genie+ in advance prior to your trip as a ticket add-on.

Moving forward, whether you have an Annual Pass or multi- or single-day ticket, you may only purchase Genie+ on the day of your visit via the app, one day at a time, “subject to availability,” per Disney.

For those who already purchased a ticket that includes Genie+ for dates later in 2022, you will still be able to use the service during your visit.

It’s also important to note that none of this impacts Disneyland Resort, only Disney World.

If we learn of anymore changes, we will definitely keep you in the Genie+ loop.

Thanks for all these great updates! I am really surprised that Disney has decided to make Genie+ even worse. We used it on our last trip through pre-purchase, and we weren't happy with it then, but at least the hassle and expense were out of the way ahead of our trip. Undoubtedly, this makes Genie+ availability 'more fair,' but it's seriously disappointing that Disney's reaction to the dissatisfaction with Genie+ is to make it more equally bad for everyone. We are second and third generations of traditional Disney family vacations, and I love them. But we're so unhappy with the Genie+ vs. Fastpass+ changes, we're actually thinking of going to Disney a lot less often. Or maybe, not at all. It's a big world.
