    Does genie +and lightning lane open at 7am if we are staying we holiday inn in Disney springs?

    Hi Jason,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Disney Genie+ Service is a great way to secure ride windows for your favorite attractions during your vacation. The cool thing about Disney Genie+ is that at 7:00 a.m. on the day you have the Service, you can reserve your first Lightning Lane window from anywhere! You don’t have to be staying at a specific Disney Resorts Collection hotel to reserve your first Lightning Lane attraction with Disney Genie+ first thing in the morning.

    However, if you plan to get an Individual Lightning Lane for rides like Avatar Flight of Passage and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, your party will need to wait until the Theme Park opens to make your Individual Lightning Lane reservation. Only guests staying at the Disney Resorts Collection hotels, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, and Shades of Green are able to make Individual Lightning Lane reservations at 7:00 a.m. You can see a full list of the Lightning Lane differences via the Walt Disney World Resort website.

    In April, the day before you select your Disney Genie+ Lightning Lanes and Individual Lightning Lanes, I suggest creating an alarm for about five minutes prior to the opening of reservations. This way you’ll be ready to select within the My Disney Experience mobile app. Remember to continue monitoring the “My Genie Day” section of the app, sometimes guests can cancel their reservations and you might be able to score another reservation that you weren’t able to get earlier in the morning. You never know, I always like to keep the faith!

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for your Walt Disney World Vacation this spring. If you have any other planning or vacation questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
