    If you buy genie plus and you also have an individual lightning lane for example for mine train, can you get a genie plus once you've tapped into the individual a la carte ride or does that not count?

    Hello Kelly,

    Your magical vacation will be here before you know it! It sounds like you are busy planning out your itinerary to make the most of each day in the parks. I think you are going to love the versatility of Disney's Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane options. 

    Great news! You don't have to use your Individual Lightning Lane purchase before making a regular Genie+ selection. In fact, if you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you can make your first Genie+ selection and make your Individual Lightning Lane purchase for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at 7 AM on the day of your park pass reservation. Guests staying outside of Walt Disney World can still book Genie+ attractions at 7 AM, but they will need to wait until park opening to make Individual Lightning Lane reservations. 

    You won't be able to make your second Genie+ reservation until 1)you've entered the Lightning Lane from your first Genie+ reservation, OR 2)2 hours after park opening. Don't worry, if you try to book an attraction before that, the My Disney Experience app will let you know. I just like to keep that in mind and try to choose my first Genie+ ride as close to park opening as possible, keeping in mind that some attractions are extremely popular and may run out of Lightning Lane access, just like the old FastPass kiosks that you may remember.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
