    Hi, Where can I find the bellowing information? 1) What's the relationship between Disney Hotel and Genie+? eg. Disney Hotel guests have the privileges to reserve LL in 7/7.30 am? 2) Where can I find the bus schedule of all Disney Hotels to parks?

    Hello Aijie! Welcome to planDisney!

    Now is such a perfect time to start planning your next vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! Disney Genie+ Service has really been a game-changer for making the most of your time within the four Theme Parks. I'd love to help you navigate the service so that you can take full advantage of it during your next trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Disney Genie+ is the service that you and your party will purchase and use to be able to enter the "Lightning Lane" for over 40 rides and attractions throughout the Parks.  These Lightning Lanes essentially help you "skip" the standby line and get access to incredible attractions even faster! 

    All Guests, regardless of where they are laying their head at night, are able to purchase Genie+ anytime after midnight on the day in which they have a valid Theme Park Ticket to use it.  You're welcome to stay up until midnight or make the purchase through your My Disney Experience mobile app when you wake.  At 7 a.m. sharp all Guests can hop on to Genie+ and make their first Lightning Lane selections of the day.  

    If you will be staying with us as a Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection hotel or at the Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin, Swan Reserve, or Shades of Green, you get another perk!  Guests of Disney Resorts and the select others mentioned above are able to make Individual Lightning Lane selections at 7 a.m. while any Guests staying off Disney property need to wait until the official Park opening time to purchase Individual Lightning Lane selections.  Individual Lightning Lanes are not included within Genie+ and are considered "a la carte" options which you can purchase separately. These Individual Lightning Lanes are reserved for the most popular attractions within each Theme Park such as Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

    As for bus schedules, you will find that there is no official published bus schedule but you can count on buses arriving wherever you are approximately every 20 minutes. You will find that complimentary Disney bus transportation between Disney Resorts and Theme Parks begins approximately 45 minutes before opening time and ends one hour after the Parks close for the evening. 

    I hope you have a magical stay, Aijie!
