    Does Genie+ operate the same way at Disneyland. Any guest, with no regard to where they are staying, is able to purchase Genie+ at 7am the day of their visit? At what time can the reservation be made for the first attraction? Individual LL?

    Greetings, Elizabeth!

    I'd like to extend a warm welcome to you on behalf of the Disneyland Resort planDisney panelists! It sounds like you've had experience with Genie+ over at Walt Disney World, and it works very similarly out here at the Disneyland Resort with a few differences that I will cover. 

    Genie+ is available as an add-on at the time of ticket purchase or through the Disneyland app as a single-day purchase after park entry, which differs from Walt Disney World. There is no need for you to be on your device at 7 a.m. hoping to make that first reservation. The first Lightning Lane you can reserve for an attraction would be made immediately after entering either Disneyland or Disney California Adventure. If you've purchased a Park Hopper ticket, you can make reservations at both Parks but keep in mind that you cannot park hop until 1 p.m. so plan accordingly. Individual Lightning Lanes work much the same way in that they can be purchased only after park entry. You can also hold a Genie+ reservation and an Individual Lightning Lane at the same time! As always, availability is limited and recently, Disneyland actually sold out of Genie+ for a few days during the busy Holiday season. 

    One thing I love about our Genie+ is that Disney PhotoPass downloads are included with your purchase, so feel free to make use of the Disney PhotoPass photographers and download attraction photos to your heart's content! 

    Elizabeth, I see that your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth has already begun, so I hope that your time here is as magical as ever. We are incredibly proud to represent Walt's original Park and we strive to uphold the legacy that he started in 1955. I hope you found this information useful, and please write to us again at planDisney for any further questions!

    Have a Magical Day!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
