    Any way for AP holders to purchase genie+ in advance or must they be purchased only on day of visit for AP holders?

    Hey there, Carol! Thanks for stopping by planDisney to ask your question. 

    As a fellow Annual Passholder, I am so excited to get to the Walt Disney World theme parks in November to try out Genie+. 

    Currently, Annual Passholders can add Disney Genie+ on the day that they plan to go to the park, beginning at midnight EST on the MyDisneyExperience mobile app. You can add it anytime that day, even after you have entered the parks. My plan is to watch the wait times leading up to my trip and then decide if I truly want to purchase it each day, or just for 1-2 days while I am there. 

    When I was just in WDW at the beginning of October, I found that they standby lines were never more than a 40-minute wait, and often the posted wait time was less than what we actually waited. We were there for 10 days, and I think our longest wait was for Jungle Cruise, and we rode EVERYTHING in all of the parks. 

    Leading up to your trip, if you haven’t updated the MyDisneyExperience app on your mobile device, do it asap. Then, check out Disney Genie. It will let you select your top attractions, add where you’d like to eat, and even help you book Enchanting Extras that are available. This is supposed to assist you to have the best day possible, and it is free! I seriously can’t wait to check this new feature out. 

    I hope this helps with planning for your upcoming visit for The Most Magical Celebration on Earth! Be sure to be on the lookout for all the Fab 50 Character Collection statues around the property. Some of them are in unexpected places. 

    Happy Traveling,
