    Counting down until our next stay at The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. We purchased our vacation package prior to the Disney Genie launch. Am I able to modify my package to include Disney Genie+ or do I have to wait until our first park day?

    Greetings, Laura!

    Welcome back to planDisney! The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort are a fantastic resort choice. The cabins offer plenty of room to spread out and relax after a day at the parks. I am so excited to hear that you are planning a return visit. Let the countdown continue! June will be here before you know it, so let's go over how and when to add Genie+. 

    Laura, you can change your tickets now or wait until your arrival. The choice is yours! I recently changed park tickets for an upcoming trip of mine to include the Genie+ option. I chose to upgrade ahead of time so that I would have one less thing to do in the mornings of my park days. If you would like to modify your vacation package in advance, you can do so on the My Disney Experience website. The process is quick and easy. Once you have logged in to your account, select the "My Plans" option from the drop-down menu. Scroll down the page until you see your upcoming vacation package. Select the "Change Reservation" link under the confirmation details. The next page will give you a variety of changes you are able to make to your upcoming adventure. You will select the blue highlighted "Change" option listed under Theme Park Tickets. After selecting this option all theme park ticket changes available will appear on the next page. Select your ticket of choice with Genie+ and follow the last few steps. And poof! Just like magic, your Genie+ will be ready to go for your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth. This feature will be added to all tickets you have reserved under your vacation package. 

    Now if you only want to use Genie+ on certain park days, you would not want to add this feature to plans in advance. You do have the option to add Genie+ to specific days, rather than your entire trip. You can do this in the My Disney Experience Mobile app. You can add Genie+ to your day right around the time Cinderella's coach is turning back into a pumpkin, at the stroke of midnight. If your princess style is more Sleeping Beauty and less spending a few extra minutes at the ball, you can add Genie+ at your leisure that morning. I recommend adding this feature before 7 AM. This is when the Genie+ Lightning Lane booking window opens. If there is a high in-demand attraction that you are aiming to select early in the day, you will want to be logged in and ready to reserve at the time. 

    I hope that your upcoming adventure is magical and memorable. 
    We'll see ya real soon!
