    1. How much is Genie+? 2. Is the Genie+ price per day, per person? 3. How much is Lightning Lane? 4. Can I purchase Genie+ and Lightning Lane ahead of time?

    Hi Suzette. Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney!

    I love talking about Disney Genie+ because I really love this service. I'm all about maximizing my time in the parks so purchasing Disney Genie+ makes a lot of sense for me. Skipping the queue at major attractions? Yes, please! I have snacks to eat and rides to ride!

    Lightning Lane entrances are available through both Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes. You can purchase Disney Genie+, Individual Lightning Lanes, or both. Over 40 attractions across the Walt Disney World Resort are included with Disney Genie+. One attraction at a time can be reserved for each person that has the service. In addition, up to 2 Individual Lightning Lanes per person can be purchased a day. These are the most popular attractions in the parks so getting to skip the line is a huge plus! The attractions offered can change, so be sure to check out the Lightning Lane page for the most up-to-date list! I highly recommend it for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Disney's Hollywood Studios and Avatar Flight of Passage in Disney's Animal Kingdom. Those rides are epic and can sometimes get epically long wait times.

    At this time, pricing for both Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes can change each day. You'll be able to check the prices for each service through the My Disney Experience mobile app each day. Each of these prices is charged per person, per day. You can purchase Genie+ at 12 AM EST each day you'd like to use the service. Please keep in mind that you do not have to purchase it at this time, but you'll definitely want to do so before 7 AM EST. Note that Genie+ can sell out so the earlier you purchase the service, the better. You can begin to make Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations through the app beginning at 7 AM EST.

    If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you will be able to purchase one or two Individual Lightning Lanes at 7 AM EST. If you are planning on making reservations through both Genie+ Lightning Lane and Individual Lightning Lanes, I suggest you have two people using the app: one to book Genie+ and one to book Individual Lightning Lanes. If you are staying not staying at a Disney Resort, you will be able to purchase your first Individual Lightning Lanes when the park opens for the day. Be sure to check the calendar for opening times.

    Suzette, don't forget that you can always use the free version of Disney Genie at all times. It will give you wait times, a suggested itinerary based on your interests, and help you find the most convenient food options in the park!

    Have a wonderful vacation!

    You've never had a friend quite like the Genie,
