    My first day of park visits is 10/20 and I already have my tickets and park reservations. Can I add Genie+ now, or do I have to wait until the 19th?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Danielle. I'm so excited to hear you'll be traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort next week! There's no place I'd rather be, that's for sure. 

     It's a super exciting time to be visiting the theme parks. Between The World's Most Magical Celebration and the launch of Disney Genie Service, there will be lots of new magic for you to discover! Disney Genie Service is sure to optimize your time and maximize your fun. And with the purchase of Genie+, you can take your visit to the next level by minimizing the time you spend waiting in line for popular attractions!

     I'm glad to hear you have your Theme Park Tickets and Theme Park Reservations ready and set to go. You'll be enjoying pixie-dusted adventures in the theme parks before you know it! At this time, Genie+ and individual Lightning Lane selections are not yet available for purchase. The Disney Parks Blog announced that Disney Genie Service will be launching on October 19, 2021. It's possible that Genie+ may be available for purchase before then, but for now, we're keeping our sights on that October 19 date. My best advice is to check in with the Disney Parks Blog between now and the time of your visit. It's your best resource for news and updates about Disney Parks and destinations! If any new announcements are made about Disney Genie Service, we'll see that information posted on the Disney Parks Blog. 

     Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app before your arrival. It's magic at your fingertips! It's with the My Disney Experience mobile app that you'll find Disney Genie Service and be able to manage your Genie+ and individual Lightning Lane selections.

     I hope this was helpful, Danielle. I'm wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
