    Ashley M, When do we use the app to schedule our rides? Is it the day before or the day of our visit??

    Hi Steven! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    You and your party are going to have such a wonderful time when you visit Walt Disney World Resort!  Did you hear that starting April 18th your favorite character pals will again be giving out warm hugs and signing autographs?  So put on your latest and greatest Mickey Mouse sweatshirt and get in there for a tight squeeze and a photo with the Big Man himself! 

    Steven, I think you may be referring to Walt Disney World Resort's newest option to essentially skip the lines and jump on your favorite attractions with little to no wait: Disney Genie+ Service! Genie+ is a fantastic way to maximize your time in the Parks, allowing you to return to a ride or attraction during a specified return window and walk right on, instead of standing in line.  Before your return window, you can explore other areas of the Parks or grab a legendary snack like Blue or Green Milk from the Milk Stand in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disney's Hollywood Studios.  

    With the purchase of Disney Genie+ you and your party will be able to select your first Lightning Lane attraction return time at 7 a.m. sharp on the day of your visit.  I highly suggest being up and ready to make your selection right at 7 a.m. as the most popular attractions do go quickly! 

    Did you know that you can also purchase Individual Lightning Lanes without having Genie+ Service?  Individual Lightning Lanes are reserved for the most popular attractions within each Theme Park and can be purchased for a separate price.  Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel are able to book their first Individual Lightning Lane at 7 a.m. each day, while other Guests are able to make their first selection at the Park's official opening time that day.  

    Hopefully, you'll be able to ride each and every attraction on your bucket list for this trip! Make sure to check out the new Remy's Ratatouille Adventure attraction in EPCOT.  I hear that the lines tend to go down near closing time, so make it your last stop of the night if you don't purchase an Individual Lightning Lane!

    Have a magical trip!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
