About the pricing -- Disney says “throughout the year, prices may be lower on some days and higher on other days.”
Here's the full list of Lightning Lane attractions at launch:
At Walt Disney World, guests will be able to select the *next available* Lightning Lane return time when using Genie+. When purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane, they will be able to choose from a list of available times throughout the day.
You will only be able to use Lightning Lane once per attraction per day (for both Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane). You can purchase a maximum of two Individual Lightning Lane attractions per day.
When using Genie+ Lightning Lane, you must redeem a LL before you can book another LL or wait 120 minutes from time of booking (whichever is the soonest). Genie app will tell you when you can book another G+ LL.
The 120 minute wait is not necessary for Individual Lightning Lane purchases. You can purchase both LL passes right at 7am if you want.
About Disneyland: Disney says it will share a Disneyland launch date "very soon" - but nothing yet. Most of the features in Genie and Genie+ will all work the same for Disneyland. More on that later.
Nothing new on the status of adding Genie+ to an Annual Pass. When it launches on Oct. 19, all guests will either purchase day-of or add to their ticket for length of stay.
Some more about the free Genie planning app:

Genie optimizes a plan based on factors including crowds, downtime, and weather. Can also adjust on the fly for guest changes including if they already ate lunch, already experienced an attraction, etc.
The Tip Board will include all available restaurants with mobile order pick up times. It will also list info. about a walk up lists (if available).

If you’re planning to park hop, you can add your time of arrival using a time arrival slider - and it will recommend experiences.
Note - for individual Lightning Lane purchases, Disney Resort guests can buy at 7am. All other guests can purchase individual Lightning Lane attractions when park opens.
More information about when/how to purchase Genie+ and the individual LL:
A note about Lightning Lane:

Individual Lightning Lane purchases are a final purchase. No canceling/modifying.

Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations can be canceled and replaced with a new attraction reservation.

NEW: Disneyland made a small change to the virtual queue process for WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure.

Disneyland may now opt to pause virtual queue enrollment from time to time and open the standby queue for the remainder of an operating day.
Disneyland updated the wording on its website to reflect the policy change. The site now says "may require guests to join a virtual queue" vs. the old phrasing that said "join the virtual queue to experience it."
What does it mean? This basically means Disneyland can choose to open up the standby queue during the afternoon -- and guests can check the Disneyland app for the attraction status. If it says virtual queue, join. If it doesn't, you can join standby queue.

Disney Cruise Line just announced "Star Wars: Cargo Bay” and "Fairytale Hall” for the #DisneyWish.…
Honestly, I’m not quite sure what to make of this Star Wars experience - but it involves "augmented reality-enabled datapads to track and study the creatures on a series of special assignments."
Based on what we’ve heard about the Disney Wish so far, this ship is going all in on augmented reality.

That sound you hear is me sighing the loudest sigh ever sighed.

BREAKING: Disney officially reveals Genie, Genie+, and Lightning Lane coming to Walt Disney World and Disneyland this fall. Genie+ and Lightning Lane will replace FastPass+ and MaxPass.

Genie+ will be priced at $15 pp/day at WDW, $20 pp/day at Disneyland

A breakdown thread -
Disney is introducing Lightning Lane -- the replacement for the FastPass “line.” Genie+, for a flat fee $15 at WDW and $20 at DL, gets you LL access to *most* attractions (ex: Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Mountain). Genie+ includes 15+ attractions at DL, 40+ at WDW.
High demand attractions, like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Radiator Springs Racers, will be available as “individual attraction selections”. These will be priced per person per ride (pricing tbd) and get you access to LL on those rides. Max two Lightning Lane purchases pp/per day.

FLASH: A source tells the Associated Press the CDC will issue guidance Thursday allowing fully vaccinated people to ditch masks indoors in many instances.
UPDATE: The new guidance will still call for wearing masks in crowded indoor settings like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters, but could ease restrictions for reopening workplaces and schools.
MORE: The new guidance will also no longer recommend that fully vaccinated people wear masks outdoors in crowds.

WDW has updated its physical distancing policy, saying they will "reduce physical distancing measures" across some areas -- however six-feet distancing measures will continue in dining locations, merchandise stores "and in areas where Guests can temporarily remove masks."
Say goodbye to the Runaway Railway outdoor queue madness (via @bioreconstruct).
Another example I expect to see soon - the Peter Pan queue.

The extended queue currently uses Columbia Harbour House. If you reduce spacing in that queue, then Disney can actually use the restaurant as a restaurant - which means more food options and higher park capacity.
