    What is genie+ ? And, how to get? What kind of ticket for paark i have to get like unlimitided time entry in any park any time like 3 to 4 days

    Hi Vishal! Welcome to planDisney! 

    You bring up a great question and one that most upcoming Guests want to know more about. With Disney Genie+ being new, many Guests have not had the opportunity to experience it just yet. Let’s discuss your ticket options first then dive back into everything you need to know about Genie+.

    Based on your question, I would suggest purchasing a 4-day park ticket and adding on the Park Hopper Option. This will give you access to all four of the parks on any day of your visit. You’ll need to make a theme park reservation for the first park you plan to go to. Once you enter that park for the day, you can then hop to any of the remaining parks starting at 2 PM. This will give you the freedom to come and go as you please for a portion of the day. 

    To purchase park tickets, you can do so using the Walt Disney World website and selecting “Theme Park Tickets”. Follow the prompts to enter the number of days and when you plan on arriving. You will have a certain time window to use the tickets. For example, a 4-day ticket will allow you a 7-day window to use them within. My family usually likes to take a rest day in the middle to recharge and be ready for the following days at the parks. 

    Now that your tickets are squared away, let’s get you up to speed on Disney Genie+. This is an added paid feature that will allow your party to make Lightning Lane reservations to qualifying attractions to bypass the stand-by queue. Essentially, this will create shorter wait times on rides and allow you to experience more attractions during your park day. You will have the option to purchase Disney Genie+ for your entire stay before your arrival or you can add it on each day of your park visit. The cost per day will be the same either way, but it depends if you want to commit before you arrive. 

    When buying your tickets online, the website will give you the option to add on Disney Genie+ right at that time. If you purchase it on the day of, you will need to download the My Disney Experience App and select “My Genie Day”. You’ll see a purple bar that reads, “Get Disney Genie+ for Today”. Tap on that and follow the prompts to purchase for every Guest in your party. 

    To start using the service, you are allowed to make your first Lightning Lane reservation at 7:00 AM EST before the park opens. You will need to access your My Disney Experience App to use this service. Once you enter the park and ride your first Disney Genie+ attraction, you will be able to use the App to find your next selection. You will then continue this process as the day progresses. You will only be able to have one active reservation at a time. There is one exception and that is if your next selection is over two hours from the current time. In this scenario, you will be able to make another Lightning Lane selection during this time. 

    Separate from Genie+ are the Individual Lightning Lane attractions, which are reserved for the most popular ones. These rides are an additional cost, and the price varies depending on the ride and day. To bypass the wait time on these attractions, you will need to log on to your My Disney Experience App and find the attraction you wish to ride. Select the Individual Lightning Lane option and the price to purchase will be listed along with the next available return time.

    Vishal, I hope you find this condensed version of Disney Genie+ helpful on your upcoming visit. Please visit the Walt Disney World website for more information regarding this service and its benefits! 

    Happy planning!
