    So do we only have to book dining and experiences now? We don’t have to book rides?

    Hello there, Andrea! 

    Welcome to planDisney with an excellent question! Thank you for stopping by and giving us the chance to help you plan magical memories for your Walt Disney World Resort adventure!

    With so much to see and do at all four theme parks, water parks, Disney Springs, and Disney Resorts Collection hotels, Guests have the option to add even more magic to their Walt Disney World Resort visit by customizing their vacation and booking dining and Enchanting Extras Collection experiences. Booking is optional, but I highly recommend planning in advance to secure your favorite restaurants and experiences. My girls want to be transformed into Disney Princesses at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on our next Disney vacation, and since spaces are limited, I know I need to try booking appointments are early as possible.

    Guests are welcome to make dining reservations and book Enchanting Extras Collection experiences up to 60 days before their visit. If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can make all your reservations for your entire length of stay (for up to a 10-night stay) up to 60 days before your check-in date (dining reservations and Enchanting Extras Collection experiences subject to availability). Reservations can be booked online or via the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    In the past, Guests used to make attraction selections ahead of their visits, but now there is a new service called Disney Genie+. Buying Disney Genie+ is optional and can be done via the My Disney Experience mobile app beginning at midnight on the date of your park visit. You will be able to make your first attraction selection starting at 7:00 am on the day of your visit, and after redeeming that first experience, you can repeat the process as many times as possible. In addition to Disney Genie+, you can make individual Lightning Lane purchases for select popular attractions beginning at 7:00 am on the date of your visit if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel and other select hotels. All other Guests can make their purchase at park opening time (experiences and attractions subject to availability).

    I hope this information is helpful, Andrea. Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, we are delighted to help! 

    Best magical wishes,
