    Hi Jenn,
    Thanks for bringing your question about the new Disney Genie service to planDisney. Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just a couple of weeks away, so allow me to introduce you to the new services designed to help you maximize the magic on your vacation.

    1. The complimentary Disney Genie service is available to all Guests in the My Disney Experience mobile app. It's the service that allows you to personalize your priorities and connect them to a custom tip board. This personalized tip board changes in real-time throughout your Disney days. Genie also features a personalized itinerary and interactive map, which is extremely helpful for navigating the parks. 

    2. For a set price per day per person, Disney Genie+ service allows you to spend less time waiting in line by making Lightning Lane reservations at over 40 attractions throughout the four theme parks in the My Disney Experience app. Access to all of these attractions is included with Genie+, depending on availability and your Park Pass reservation. For example, with Genie+ and a Park Pass reservation at Disney's Hollywood Studios, I can make my first Lightning Lane reservation at 7:00 a.m. but Slinky Dog Dash may not have any more availability after 7:05 a.m. and I may not make a Lightning Lane reservation for an EPCOT attraction unless I have the Park Hopper option on my ticket and the reservation is for after park hopping begins at 2:00 p.m. You may hold one Lightning Lane reservation at a time, though you can make an additional reservation every two hours if a previously made reservation has not been redeemed. Additionally, you do not have a choice of return time and must select the return time given for each attraction.  

    3. With or without Genie+, Guests may purchase up to two Individual Lightning Lane reservations in the My Disney Experience app per day for specific attractions that are not included on the Genie+ attraction list. Each of the four theme parks has two attractions available à la carte for Individual Lightning Lane purchases. These include the most popular attractions such as Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Hollywood Studios and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom park. Scroll down on the Lightning Lane webpage to view a complete list by park. Prices for these reservations vary by date, attraction, and park. Depending on availability, you are able to choose a return time for Individual Lightning Lane attractions.

    You ain't never had a friend like Disney Genie, Jenn, and I hope he makes all of your wishes come true on your upcoming trip to The World's Most Magical Celebration. I recommend packing a portable phone charger for your park days, as Genie runs on battery power. Your pals at planDisney are also here to help grant as many trip-planning wishes as possible.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
