    When can you buy genie+

    Hi John! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm excited about your upcoming visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth! There have been many new and exciting experiences that have been introduced to Walt Disney World in the past few years. Even dating back to the start of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration in October, you'll have countless options to choose from to make this trip as unique as possible. 

    Disney Genie+ is a new service introduced to help maximize your time in the park by minimizing your wait time on many attractions. To do so, you'll need to utilize your My Disney Experience App to make Lightning Lane reservations for the attractions you want to use this for. To purchase Disney Genie+, you can do so while making your initial ticket purchase. If you are booking your vacation on the Walt Disney Travel Company website, you will be prompted with an option during checkout to add Disney Genie+ for the entire length of your stay.

    You will also have the option to purchase Disney Genie+ on the day of your park visit. This will allow you to only pay for it on the days you wish to use it. The morning of your visit, log on to your My Disney Experience App and select the three horizontal bars on the bottom right of your screen. Then select "My Genie Day" and look for the purple bar that states "Get Disney Genie+ for Today". Once selected, you will be able to purchase Disney Genie+ for any Guest in your party.

    In addition to this service, you will also have the option to purchase Individual Lightning Lane attractions. These reservations are not connected with Disney Genie+ and must be purchased on a stand-alone basis. There are typically one or two popular rides at each of the four theme parks that are part of this service.

    John, I hope this information helps you make some decisions about your upcoming stay. Have a magical vacation!

    See ya real soon!
