    For genie+ in Disneyland, what time can you make your first selection? Do you have to be scanned into the park or can you book it before then? Does it make a difference if we’re staying at a Disney hotel vs non-Disney hotel?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Emily!

    You are in for a whole new world of excitement when you add the Disney Genie+ Service to your day at Disneyland Resort. It's the planning tool with phenomenal cosmic power that can grant your wishes to maximize your time in the theme parks. So, let's hop on a magic carpet and take a look at using Genie+.

    Genie+ at Disneyland Resort can either be purchased as an add-on when you buy your tickets in advance or from the Disneyland App after entering the theme parks. Once you purchase Genie+, you can begin making your first Lightning Lane selection after you scan your ticket to enter the theme park. It doesn't matter if you are staying in a Disneyland Resort Hotel or off-property. I recommend having your credit card information already loaded in the Profile section of the Disneyland App so you can be ready to start making Lightning Lane selections as soon as possible. Make sure you also check out all the festive fun happening during the Holiday Season. I hope this helps you plan your Disneyland Resort adventure!

    Thank you for visiting planDisney. We are here for all your Disneyland Resort questions.

    Enjoy making magical memories!
