    We have Disney Salute tickets for our upcoming trip. We are staying on property, but won’t arrive until the morning of our first park day. Is it be possible for us to purchase Genie+ for the first day prior to activating the tickets at will call?

    Hiya, Heather! Thank you for bringing this great question to us at planDisney!

    I'm so excited that you'll be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth this summer! Like you, I can't wait to get to the parks as soon as I can and I always plan on visiting a park on my arrival day, too. I'd love to help you make the most out of every magical minute, and using the Disney Genie+ service is a great way to stay one jump ahead of the standby line! 

    As a military spouse, we've often used Disney Military Salute Tickets during our trips to Walt Disney World Resort. We think this is a great Special Offer for service members and their families! I reached out to a Cast Member and they confirmed that you will be able to purchase Disney Genie+ on your arrival day, even before you activate your tickets at a ticketing or Guest Relations window. All you need to do is make sure that your tickets are linked to your My Disney Experience account! Once you've linked your tickets to the Guests in your travel party, be sure that you've also made your theme park reservations with the Disney Park Pass system. This is an important step to reserve the parks you'd like to visit on every day of your trip!

    If you run into any problems with purchasing Disney Genie+ on your arrival day, I'd recommend that you head to the Guest Experience Team inside the parks – just look for the blue umbrellas! They'll be happy to hear about your situation and help you with any next steps that are available to you.

    If you have any other questions, please write to us again! After all, you've got a friend in me.
