    If I get the Genie+ does it still cost extra$$ for lightening lanes?

    Howdy, Tanya! Welcome to planDisney. 

    It's not long now until you'll be hopping on a magic carpet and riding to Walt Disney World Resort. There's a whole new world to see and experience for the 50th Anniversary Celebration. In the words of Jasmine, "It's all so magical." I recently had the pleasure of experiencing the EARidescent excitement throughout the Theme Parks. I was particularly impressed by the Beacons of Magic displays (with Spaceship Earth at EPCOT being my favorite).

    With so much to see and do, it helps to have a powerful friend. And you've never had a friend like Genie, Tanya. You can think of the entire Disney Genie service in terms of 3 wishes:

    Wish #1 — Disney Genie
    This is a complimentary service that's available for every Guest. Using the My Disney Experience app, you'll be able to use the Disney Genie tool to help you optimize your day in the Theme Parks. If there are certain attractions, shows, and meals you want to experience, then you can tell Genie and he can use his magical powers to lay out a flexible plan for you.

    Wish #2 — Disney Genie+
    If you'd like "phenomenal cosmic powers" then you can purchase Disney Genie+. This service enables you to select Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions throughout the Theme Parks. Starting at 7:00 a.m. on the day of your visit, you'll be able to make your first Lightning Lane selection. Once you enjoy that attraction, or two hours after making your selection (whatever comes first), you'll be able to make another Lightning Lane selection. You can do that throughout the day until there are no more Lightning Lane selections available.

    Wish #3 —Individual Lightning Lane Entrances
    If you'd like even extra "heavy ammunition in your camp," then you can purchase Individual Lightning Lane entrances. These are available for some of the more high-demand attractions in the Theme Parks. As of now, each Theme Park has two attractions that you can purchase Individual Lightning Lanes for. You don't need to purchase Disney Genie+ to use this service, Tanya. However, please note that, even if you have Disney Genie+, Individual Lightning Lanes do cost extra. The cost of each Individual Lightning Lane varies by attraction. One more thing to note: Since availability is limited, you'll want to book your Individual Lightning Lanes earlier in the day so that you don't miss out.

    I hope that gives you some more clarity, Tanya. With the help of Genie, you've got a brand of magic that never fails. If you'd like some personal recommendations, some of my favorite attractions are Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway, Avatar Flight of Passage, and Remy's Ratatouille Adventure.

    Have a magical trip, Tanya.
