    How do I book Genie?

    Hi Sandra! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy! Less than two months and counting until you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort and start your holiday! With so many new experiences and attractions opening, there is plenty to keep you busy throughout your stay! Disney Genie+ is the perfect addition to your park day and will help you bypass the standby queue on many attractions across all four of the theme parks. It is designed to help you maximize your time at the park. 

    If you purchased Disney Genie+ along with your tickets in advance, it will automatically be linked to your My Disney Experience account. If you were unable to, you will now need to purchase this service each day you wish to use it. To do so, log on to your My Disney Experience App the day of your park visit and on the home page, you will see a purple bar that reads "Disney Genie+ Service". Click on "Purchase for Today" and select the Guests that want to use the service on this day. Then, follow the prompts to add this service to your account. 

    Now that you have access to using Genie+ for the day, let's discuss how to make your selections. Starting at 7 AM on your park day, open the My Disney Experience App on your mobile device and tap on the three horizontal bars on the bottom right of your screen. Select "Tip Board" followed by the park you are visiting on this day. Scroll through the list of attractions and select the Disney Genie+ option for the one that you want to book.

    • If that selection is within two hours of the official park opening, then you’ll be able to make another selection once you ride the first attraction. You'll continue this process throughout the day.
    • If your selection has a return window for later in the day, you will be able to make a second selection two hours after park opening. I suggest setting a timer on your phone to remind you to make your second selection.

    There are several attractions that are separate from Disney Genie+ and will need to be purchased on an individual basis. Individual Lightning Lane entrances are also available to book at 7 AM if you are staying at a Disney Resorts Hotel or other select hotels. Otherwise, you'll need to wait until the official park opening time to make your selection. For these attractions, follow the same process as mentioned above, except you will be able to choose your return window based on what times are available. You will also be required to make payment at the time of booking by using your credit card linked to your My Disney Experience account. 

    Sandra, I hope this information helps you navigate using Disney Genie+ during your visit. Have a magical time during your upcoming stay!

    See ya real soon!
