    How do I activate my Genie + Lightning Lane Entry?

    Hello Dolores,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. The countdown is on! In just a few more days you'll be joining The World's Most Magical Celebration!

    It sounds like you've added Genie+ to your entire vacation. Now, if you haven't already added My Disney Experience app to your mobile device, you'll definitely want to do that. That is how you are going to be able to make your Lightning Lane selections using Genie+. Over the next week, take some time to familiarize yourself with the app, especially the Tip Board for each park. That's where you'll see a list of attractions, the standby wait times, and the next available Lightning Lane time.

    By activating your Genie+, it sounds like you want to know when you can start choosing the attractions you want to be able to ride without waiting in the Standby Line. At 7:00 AM on each morning you are visiting a park, you can make your first Lightning Lane selection from over 40 different attractions throughout Walt Disney World. You'll do this by heading to the Tip Board in your My Disney Experience app. Make sure you're looking at the board for the park you have a reservation to for the day. At 7:00 AM you'll see below several of the attractions both a Standby Line wait time, and below that you'll see LL Disney Genie+ with a time that you would be able to book a Lightning Lane. Make a selection by clicking Book Experience and follow the prompts to add everyone in your party that will be riding with you. You'll be given a 1 hour return window when you can enter the Lighting Lane for that attraction. At that time, you'll scan your Magic Band or your Disney MagicMobile device as you enter the queue.

    You can only make one Lightning Lane selection at a time. In order to choose your next Lightning Lane attraction you either need to 1) enter the Lightning Lane for an attraction, or 2) wait 120 minutes after your previous selection. That sounds confusing I know, but basically, if at 9:00 AM you book a Lightning Lane for Slinky Dog Dash in Disney's Hollywood Studios for 7:30 PM, you don't have to wait that long to make another selection. You'll be able to book another Lightning Lane 120 minutes later at 11:00 AM. 

    If you haven't purchased Genie+ for your entire trip, don't worry. You can add this option to your tickets each morning beginning at 12:00 AM. 

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
