    Hi James, welcome to planDisney!

    Congratulations on your recent booking. Life just feels more magical with a Walt Disney World Resort vacation countdown, doesn't it? The World's Most Magical Celebration will still be going strong during your travel dates and I encourage you to experience both nighttime spectaculars that debuted as part of this milestone: Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom park and Harmonious at EPCOT. 

    Valid admission, theme park reservations, and a method of entry (MagicBand, Disney MagicMobile pass, and/or admission card) are currently required for theme park entry for everyone over the age of three. Children and adults over the age of three that do not have their own My Disney Experience accounts must have their plans and vacation entitlements managed under an adult's account.

    Disney Genie+ service maximizes your time in the parks by giving access to Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions throughout the four theme parks. Guests can purchase tickets with Genie+, add Genie+ for the duration of their tickets in advance (in some cases), or purchase Genie+ each park day beginning at 7:00 a.m. in the My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the home screen --> My Genie Day --> scroll down to "Get Disney Genie+ for Today").

    Each person in your party over the age of three must have Disney Genie+ to access Genie+ Lightning Lanes. Keeping in mind that children ages 3-12 must have their My Disney Experience profiles managed by another adult, anyone with a My Disney Experience account may book Lighting Lane attractions for their entire party, up to 12 people, as long as they are connected as Family and Friends. The same rules apply for Individual Lightning Lane purchases.  

    Guests can book Lightning Lane attractions beginning at 7:00 a.m. EST from the Tip Board of the My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines --> Tip Board). Scroll to a desired attraction and click the "Book Experience" button with "LL Disney Genie+" and an arrival time. The next step asks you to select your party, at which time you can select all members of your Family and Friends list that have valid admission, theme park reservation, and Genie+. 

    The complimentary Genie service and Genie+ unlock a whole new world of itinerary planning possibilities. As new questions arise, James, let's continue this dialogue. You've got questions, planDisney has answers. Pixie dust included!
