    If I book a genie + at 7am and then miss my opportunity to book again at 11am (2hrs after park opening) and book another genie + at 11:30 when can I book again 1:00pm or do I have to wait 2 hours after from 11:30?

    Salutations, Susan.

    Welcome back to planDisney! I’m glad you stopped by with this question since it looks like you are already on your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    You can book your first Disney Genie+ service Lightning Lane at 7:00 a.m. and can continue booking subsequent Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane selections every two hours or after redeeming your prior selection, whichever comes first. If you book your second Lightning Lane selection at 11:30 a.m., you would have to wait two hours to book your next selection (1:30 p.m.). However, if the arrival window for your selection is earlier than 1:30 p.m., then you would be able to book your next Lightning Lane after redeeming the selection you made at 11:30 a.m.

    What exactly do I mean by that? Well, let’s say you book a Genie+ Lightning Lane for Haunted Mansion at 11:30 a.m. that can be redeemed between 11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m. Once you scan in at the Lightning Lane entrance for Haunted Mansion, you can immediately book another Lightning Lane since you redeemed that selection. Now, let’s say you book a Genie+ Lightning Lane for Haunted Mansion at 11:30 a.m. that can be redeemed between 3:45 p.m. - 4:45 p.m. You would have to wait until 1:30 p.m. to book your next Lightning Lane since the return window is so far out from when you booked it.

    If you’re ever confused on when you will be eligible to book another Lightning Lane selection, just head over to the Tip Board in your My Disney Experience mobile app and try to make another Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane selection. If it’s too early to book, the screen will pop up with a message that tells you when you can make your next choice.

    Susan, I hope this clears things up for you, but if you need me to explain it further, don’t hesitate to let me know. May the remainder of your trip be full of pixie dust and smiles.

    Until we meet again,
