    Now that Fast pass is gone, I'm not sure how to book rides using the genie service before I go

    Welcome to planDisney, Melissa!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is coming up so soon!  I'm sure you would like to put the finishing touches on your plans so you are ready to enjoy all the magic of the 50th Anniversary Celebration.

    Disney Genie+ service allows Guests to reserve Lightning Lane access to eligible attractions on the date of their visit.  Guests staying at Disney Resorts Collection and other select hotels may reserve their first Lightning Lane attraction beginning at 7:00 am; Guests without a qualifying resort stay may reserve their first Lightning Lane attraction beginning at park opening time.

    If you were familiar with FastPass+, you'll notice a few differences with Genie+.  Lightning Lane reservations may be made day-of only.  Guests may reserve one Lightning Lane attraction at a time for the next available time window.  Another Lightning Lane attraction may be reserved after redeeming the current reservation, or after 2 hours (whichever comes first) beginning 2 hours after park opening time.

    If your tickets do not already include Disney Genie+ service, you may purchase single-day use through the My Disney Experience app each day you plan to use it.  I purchased Genie+ on my recent trip shortly before 7:00 am -- it only takes a few moments.  To begin making your Lightning Lane reservations, use the Tip Board for your selected park to view the next available arrival windows and make your selection.  You will find the Tip Board by selecting the "plus" button on the home screen of the My Disney Experience app and choosing "View my Genie Day and Tip Board", or by using the menu button in the lower right corner.  To view your current reservations, select "My Day".

    Once you give Disney Genie+ a try, you'll be a pro in no time.  If you have any additional questions, please feel free to stop by planDisney again anytime.  Have a wonderful vacation!
