    Can I book/ pay for just 1 day of genie+ ahead of time for my 4+day trip?

    Hiya, Ashley! Thanks for visiting us at planDisney!

    The Most Magical Place on Earth is calling your name, much like the ocean calls Moana! Lucky for you, you'll be arriving in just a few days! I'm sure you'll continue with some last-minute planning leading up to your stay, like deciding whether or not to add Disney Genie+ to your park days. We're here to help!

    Unfortunately, you cannot add Disney Genie+ to just one day of your trip ahead of time. However, on the day you'd like to add Disney Genie+, you can do so starting at midnight. That doesn't mean you have to stay up that late or set an alarm to wake you from your slumber, but if you happen to be up, being early never hurts! I added Disney Genie+ to one day of my trip last month. I woke up at 6:30 a.m., made the purchase and was ready and waiting at 7 a.m. to make my first selection.

    To add Disney Genie+ on the day you'd like to use it, start by opening your My Disney Experience Mobile App and tapping the menu button in the bottom right corner. Select "My Genie Day" and you'll see a purple bar that says "Take Today to the Next Level" next to a Disney Genie+ logo. Click that and then select "Get Disney Genie+ Service." You'll then be prompted to confirm your party, where you'll select all Guests who'd like to purchase Disney Genie+ with you. Follow the steps to check out and you'll be on your way to the Lightning Lane! Ka-Chow!

    Ashley, as you make Disney Genie+ selections throughout the day, don't forget to explore the rest of the Disney Genie service. By visiting the "Tip Board" in your My Disney Experience App, the same place you make your Disney Genie+ selections, you'll see current standby times, the next showtimes and even costs and times available for Individual Lightning Lane attractions. If you check out the "My Genie Day" section of the app, the free Disney Genie service will help customize an itinerary that helps maximize your day in the parks based on your preferences and selections. My favorite feature is the dining suggestion portion of this service, where the Genie will grant all your foodie wishes by showing you the dining locations nearby the attractions on your itinerary!

    I hope this trip is your most magical vacation yet, Ashley! Be sure to stop back by if any questions arise before your arrival!

    Until next time,
