    Do you have to buy a genie plus or lightning lane pass for children under 3?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Kasey. I'm so excited to see that you'll be traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort next week! And with a little one in tow! You're sure to make lots of precious memories together. 

     You'll be among some of the very first visitors at the Walt Disney World Resort to experience Disney Genie Service. This complimentary service is going to maximize your fun in the theme parks! Guests will have the opportunity to take their visit to the next level by purchasing Genie+ and individual Lightning Lane selections, which will minimize time spent waiting in line. As a mom of three, I say the less waiting in line, the better! 

     You ask a really great question about Genie+ and individual Lightning Lane selection purchases. Genie+ and individual Lightning Lane selections can only be purchased for Guests ages 3 and over who have valid theme park admission. Since Guests under the age of 3 don't need theme park admission (or Theme Park Reservations), they won't need Genie+ or individual Lightning Lane selections. Those little ones will be able to access the Lightning Lane with the members of their travel party who purchased access. 

     Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog as you're counting down the days to your arrival. It's your best resource for news and updates about Disney Parks and destinations! If any additional information is released about Disney Genie Service, we'll see it posted on the Disney Parks Blog!

     I hope this was helpful, Kasey. I'm wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
