    How far ahead can we buy the genie plus for our theme park tickets?

    Hi Zoe,

    Thank you so much for visiting planDisney with your question. We on the panel love helping guests to plan magical vacations!

    Disney Genie+ Service will allow you to use Lightning Lanes to experience some attractions throughout your theme park day. The Lightning Lanes will reduce your wait time for these attractions. This is a great way to get even more magic, thrills, and fun into a Disney theme park day!

    Disney Genie+ Service is available for purchase the day of your theme park visit. You do need to purchase it one day at a time. This allows you to choose the days that you purchase this service throughout your visit. You can choose to use it some days and not others. You might find that some days you are very interested in experiencing as many attractions as possible, and other days that you wish to take things a little slower and thus forgo purchasing Disney Genie+ Service on those days.

    Disney Genie+ Service becomes available for purchase just after midnight on the day of your theme park visit. If you stay up late, you can make this purchase after midnight for your visit that day. Then, you will be able to start making Lightning Lane selections at 7:00 a.m. on the day of your visit. Disney Genie+ Service is subject to availability and thus can sell out. This has happened very rarely and on very busy days at the theme parks. I let you know this because typically, it is just fine if you want to wait until right before 7:00 a.m. to purchase Disney Genie+ Service; however, you should know that there are some days when it does sell out. I have always made a Disney Genie+ Service purchase in the morning and it has worked out okay for me!

    There are step-by-step instructions for adding Disney Genie+ Service. Do be sure that you have the My Disney Experience app downloaded in order to do this. The My Disney Experience App is the easiest way to manage all of your vacation details, including making Lightning Lane selections.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Zoe! Have a great time planning your magical vacation, and please do feel free to come back to planDisney with any further questions.
