    Hi , I have booked theme park tickets with Genie passes from 15th Dec onwards for Disney four parks How does the Genie Pass work ? Do I need to make reservations in advance for shows, rides that I had to plan in the park ?

    Hi there, Jitender! 

    Welcome to planDisney. I’m glad you stopped by with your question for us!

    Yippie for purchasing your theme park tickets, making your Disney Park Pass reservations, and opting for the Disney Genie+ service! I would be happy to discuss each of these topics with you, along with how to use the Disney Genie+ service to reserve your experiences!

    As you know, although Disney Genie service is complimentary and allows Guests to optimize their vacation by choosing preferences for it to create an ideal itinerary, Guests can also opt to purchase the Disney Genie+ service, which allows Guests to choose from select Lightning Lane entrances, one at a time, for up to over 40 experiences and attractions around the parks! 

    I would first recommend setting up the complimentary Genie service. To do this, please open up your My Disney Experience Mobile app. Next, you will want to select the three horizontal lines located on the bottom right corner and select “My Genie Day” to customize your preferences and view your recommended personalized itinerary. 

    Jitender, you must make your reservations in advance using the Disney Genie+ service. You can begin the selection process for your first experience via the My Disney Experience Mobile app beginning at 7:00 AM on the day of your visit. 

    At 7:00 AM Eastern, you will want to have your My Disney Experience Mobile app pulled up, tap on the three horizontal lines located on the bottom right corner, and then My Genie Day. Next, please select the “Tip Board” (located on the top, next to “My Day”), and under that, you will be prompted to book an experience from a list that shows wait times of attractions available for you to choose from. If you click on this area before 7 AM, it will not allow you to select any; however, beginning at 7 AM, you can start making your selection! For example, let’s say your top priority is Pirates of the Caribbean that morning, and it is available with a return time of 9 AM. You can choose the attraction by tapping on it and confirming your choice, and it will show up under your “My Day” page. 

    It will also let you know when your next Lightning Lane selection is available on the banner above. Guests can choose attractions either one at a time or after the two-hour window has passed. So since you made your first selection at 7 AM, you can start to choose a different one at 9 AM, regardless of if you have boarded Pirates of the Caribbean attraction or not. 

    We’re so excited to welcome you to the magic, Jitender! Have an enchanting visit!
