    We are going to Epcot during the day then after we are going to the Mickey’s Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom. If we buy Genie Plus can we use it at both parks?

    Hi, Dani!  Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hear that you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season this year!  Attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is one of my favorite ways to celebrate the holiday season.  Nothing puts me in the Christmas spirit quite like watching Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade as the snow falls on Main Street, U.S.A.

    In addition to the festive entertainment offerings, one of the best things about Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is that wait times for attractions are often much lower than they tend to be during regular theme park hours.  There are a limited number of special event tickets sold for each party, which keeps the crowds and wait times low.  For this reason, Disney Genie+ service is not offered during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. 

    Depending on how you're planning to spend your day at EPCOT, it still might be worth it for you to purchase Disney Genie+ service.  If there are quite a few attractions that you'd like to experience at EPCOT, Disney Genie+ service could help you make the most of the daytime hours that you're spending there prior to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.  It is important to note that at this time, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is not included with Disney Genie+ service, and there is currently no standby queue for this attraction.  In order to help the Guardians save the galaxy, you will need to join a virtual queue or purchase an Individual Lightning Lane.

    Guests may enter Magic Kingdom Park starting at 4:00 p.m. with their Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party tickets.  If your regular theme park tickets happen to have the Park Hopper option, you could hop from EPCOT to Magic Kingdom Park any time after 2:00 p.m.  If you have Park Hopper tickets and you choose to purchase the multiple parks Disney Genie+ option, then you would be able to use Disney Genie+ service at Magic Kingdom Park from the time you arrive until the park closes to daytime Guests for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. 

    Dani, I hope that this information is useful as you plan for your upcoming visit.  If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.  Wishing you a happy holiday season and a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
