    Our family will be using the 4-Day, 4 Park Magic Tickets. We were hoping to also purchase Genie +. Since I can not make park reservations with the 4-Day, 4 Park Magic Tickets, will I still be able to purchase Genie + without a reservation.

    Hi Justin, welcome to planDisney!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort visit will be here before you know it! It’s great that you have the 4-Day, 4 Park Magic Tickets, and with Disney Genie+ Service, you’ll be able to maximize your time in each theme park! 

    I reached out to a Cast Member for help with your answer and they explained that the ticketing and theme park reservation system will recognize that you have the 4-Day, 4 Park Magic Tickets linked to your account. Since these tickets do not require theme park reservations, you should be able to purchase Disney Genie+ Service on each day of your park visits. The Cast Member also said that if you do have difficulty with completing your Genie+ purchase, you should call the number listed under “My Disney Experience, MagicBand, and MagicBand+” and they can help you purchase Disney Genie+ Service over the telephone. Phone lines open at 7:00 AM ET each day. This is helpful if you want to make sure you have your Genie+ Service purchased before entering the theme parks. 

    Since your visit is coming up soon, I recommend looking through the My Disney Experience mobile app and checking wait times and Lightning Lane availability a few times a week. While it’s not a perfect predictor, it can give you ideas on how you should structure your day in each theme park. Although you don’t need to have your day planned down to the minute, it helps to know what attractions and experiences you want to prioritize. 

    For your EPCOT day, make sure you visit the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. You can view the menus for the Outdoor Kitchens on the Disney Parks Blog in this Disney Eats Foodie Guide to EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. I know the BRUNCHCOT location is always popular, and on my most recent visit, I really enjoyed the peanut butter & jelly swirled soft-serve in a waffle cone from Refreshment Port near the Canada Pavilion. 

    I’ve attached the most recent planDisney Podcast episode about the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival to this answer, Justin. If you have any future planning questions, feel free to reach out to me directly at planDisney!
