    When can I buy genie + and book reservation

    Welcome to planDisney, Lisa! And welcome to the Most Magical Place on Earth! It looks like you're ready to visit the parks tomorrow, so let's jump right into your question about using Disney Genie+ Service so you can be rested and ready for the magic of an exciting day tomorrow morning!

    Guests can purchase Disney Genie+ Service starting at midnight on the day they will be using the service, and can make their first Genie+ selection at 7 AM EST through the My Disney Experience mobile app. While the service is available to purchase at midnight, because you cannot make a selection until 7 AM, I usually purchase a few minutes before 7 AM and make my first selection right after my purchase. After you have made this first choice, you will be eligible to make another selection either two hours after your chosen park has opened or immediately after you have redeemed your first Genie+ Lightning Lane, whichever occurs first. Throughout the day, you will continue to be eligible for additional selections every two hours or after you have redeemed your most recent selection. If you are ever unsure of what time you can make another selection, just visit the Tip Board in your My Disney Experience mobile app, where you will see the time posted that you will be able to make your next selection!

    Lisa, while you're planning your Lightning Lane entrances, there are a few attractions that are not included with Disney Genie+ Service, so if you are interested in any of these, you can also purchase up to 2 Individual Lightning Lanes for each day you will be in the Theme Parks. Other attractions also offer a Virtual Queue which opens at 7 AM EST each morning. If you plan to try to enter a Virtual Queue, you will want to make that your first task at 7 AM, and then make your first Genie+ selection, followed by any Individual Lightning Lane selections (if you choose). This will guarantee the best choices and selections for each of these services!

    Lisa, I hope this helps you to feel prepared for a great big beautiful tomorrow using Disney Genie+ on your visit tomorrow! If you have any other questions, come on back and let me know! I'm always happy to share the magic!

    See you tomorrow,
