    I already got our park tickets for December. If we want genie plus for our whole trip how do we purchase these?

    Hi there, Jackie, and welcome to planDisney! 

    Hooray for securing your theme park tickets for your December visit—the countdown is officially on! Let’s get into how you can access attractions’ Lightning Lanes using the Disney Genie+ Service. It’s the best way to experience rides without the lengthier wait times. 

    I love that you’re a super planner (we are, too, here at planDisney), but you won’t be able to purchase Disney Genie+ until each morning of your stay. You can buy it as early as midnight on the day of your theme park visit. But no worries! You don’t have to lose any sleep; waiting until a little before 7 a.m., when you can begin making your Lightning Lane selections, should be perfectly fine.

    You can only book one Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane at a time; however, as soon as you’ve scanned into an attraction, head to the My Disney Experience App and select your next choice. You can also “stack” your selections by waiting two hours after your selection was made, and then you can have more than one ready to go at a time.  

    AN EXTRA GEM: Don’t forget about Individual Lightning Lane purchases as well. These are separate from Disney Genie+. It is essentially reserving Lightning Lane access to ultra-popular rides like TRON Lightcycle / Run and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. You can start making these individual purchases at 7 a.m. if you’re staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel or once the theme park has opened if you’re not staying on property.

    Definitely keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog to get the latest news about any Disney Genie+ changes. Perhaps in the near future there could be a way to purchase and plan for Lightning Lanes in advance. Jackie, revisit us here at planDisney if you have any other Disney vacation planning questions. Have a magical trip! 

    Magic always,
