    Is Disney Genie+ ever going to be available for pre-purchase? We are going to WDW in June. It is so stressful to try to buy Disney Genie+, get popular Individual LL, and try to get into a Virtual Queue all at 7:00 am. Isn’t there an easier way??

    Hey there, Loralie, and welcome back to planDisney! I'm so glad you've stopped by with this great question! Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation will be here before you know it, and now is a great time to start getting your game plan ready. 

    I totally understand the heart-racing feeling that comes at 6:59am on the day of a Disney Theme Park visit. As exciting as it can be, I get that it can be a little stressful because so much happens all at one time. I've tried a few different strategies, and I'm happy to pass along a few tips you can try during your next visit:

    • Don't wait until 7:00am to purchase Disney Genie+ Service. I like to do this around 6:40am, to give me ample time to confirm my party and make the purchase. It's actually available for purchase for midnight, but my hope is that you're getting some sleep at that point!
    • Have a strategy - decide what's most important to book and go for that first. Most often for me, this is a Virtual Queue!
    • Work as a team! Ask another member of your Family & Friends to work on booking an Individual Lightning Lane while you're refreshing your screen to enter a Virtual Queue.
    • Make sure you know your way around the My Disney Experience Mobile App before your visit - you don't want to second-guess navigating through the app at crunch time!
    • I also like to go ahead and set a timer on my phone to alert me when it's time to make my next Genie+ selection. It's crazy how quickly time passes when you're at a park!
    Loralie, if you're planning a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth in June, you'll want to be sure to pack some warm weather essentials, like sunglasses and a poncho in case of rain. As always, bring your comfy shoes, sense of humor, and patience! Be sure to check out this awesome article on Disney Parks Blog about all of the amazing new experiences coming this summer. You'll be arriving just in time for the debut of the new Encanto-inspired show at EPCOT's newly-opened CommuniCore Plaza! 

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation and invite you to visit us here at planDisney with any other questions you have!

    See you real soon!
