    Have Genie+ and want to get LL for Rise of the Resistance at 7:00 AM as we are booked at Boardwalk hotel but do I go to the Tip Board or My Day?

    Hello Janice,

    Bright suns! Whether you're strolling on Disney's BoardWalk or journeying to a galaxy far, far away, you ain't never had a friend like Disney Genie! The free service will provide tips and itinerary suggestions to enhance your day in the parks. By purchasing Genie+ you'll be able to spend less time waiting in standby lines and more time enjoying rides with Lightning Lane access to over 40 attractions throughout Walt Disney World.

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is one of the most popular attractions in all four parks, for good reason. It's incredible! I might even consider enduring the long standby wait time to experience it. Because it's so popular, it is an Individual Lightning Lane purchase, meaning each guest will need to pay a fee to skip the line. It's not included with your Genie+ purchase.

    As a guest at Disney's BoardWalk Inn, you will be able to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane at 7 AM. You'll also be able to make your first Genie+ selection at that time, so you'll want to act fast. Hop onto the Tip Board in the My Disney Experience app a little before 7 AM, so you can get used to seeing how everything works. Then just keep refreshing the page until 7 AM when you can start booking reservations. Since Genie+ reservations don't require additional payment, I would make that selection first. Then move on to booking your Rise of the Resistance time. 

    Before your trip, I recommend spending some time on the Tip Board in My Disney Experience Mobile App, especially right at that 7 AM start time. That way you'll get a feel for which attractions fill up quickly. Check back at random times throughout the day. Using Genie+ can be a little intimidating at first, so familiarizing yourself as much as possible with the wait times listed on the Tip Board and getting used to refreshing the page to find new Lightning Lane times will be a huge help when you actually use Genie+ in the parks.

    Hope this helps. May the Spires Keep You!
