    If I buy genie+ do I still have to pay for lighting lanes

    Hi there, Santiago!

    Welcome to planDisney! In the spirit of my friend Genie, I'd be more than happy to grant your wish and answer your question. Disney Genie+ is one of the most useful services that you'll find at the Most Magical Place on Earth. So, let's get into how it works. 

    By purchasing Disney Genie+, you will have access to multiple Lightning Lane queues. Lightning Lanes are queues that will cut down the time you spend waiting for your favorite attractions. You can buy this access on the morning of each of your theme park days. You can purchase it starting at midnight of the day of your theme park reservation, and you can make your first Lightning Lane selection at 7 a.m. Then continue to make your Lightning Lane selections throughout the day either once you've checked into the queue of your reserved attraction or once two hours have passed since your last selection was made. 

    On the flip side, Individual Lightning Lane is for higher-in-demand attractions like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and TRON Lightcycle / Run. This is totally separate from Disney Genie+, and it can be purchased à la carte. So, even if you have purchased Disney Genie+, you still need to pay-per-ride for Individual Lightning Lane attractions.

    While you're at Walt Disney World Resort this month definitely check out the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. My kiddos and I can't get enough of the beautiful, character-inspired topiaries. You'll love them, too! I hope that you have the most magical vacation, Santiago. Feel free to revisit us here at planDisney with more of your Disney vacation planning questions. 

    Magic always,
