If Disney World parkgoers want to skip the long lines during Thanksgiving week, they're going to have to pay the price. 

Genie+ is a line skipping service that allows guests to bypass a large portion of the line for certain Disney World attractions. 

Starting today and most likely for the rest of the historically busy week at the park, the price of Genie+ has gone up to $29 per person, a new high.

HAS THE COST OF DISNEY WORLD BECOME UNAFFORDABLE FOR THE AVERAGE AMERICAN FAMILY?

The previous high for the Genie+ service was $22 per person. That amount is in addition to the cost of an admission ticket to the park.

Some of Disney's mega popular rides that aren't part of the Genie+ service, including Avatar Flight of Passage and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, require guests to buy an individual Lightning Lane entry to skip the line. 

The prices for the individual Lightning Lane purchases have also seen a spike this week. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is up to $25 per person and Avatar Flight of Passage is up to $16.
