    How do I get a genie pass and what are the benefits

    Hey there Ron! Welcome to planDisney! I'm sure You've never had a friend like me because I’m about to drop all the Disney Genie tea on you! Disney Genie has three distinct parts that can get a little confusing, but I'll explain everything below.

    Disney Genie Service
    The Disney Genie Service is complimentary and easily accessed through the My Disney Experience app. This service aims to help you make the most of your Theme Park Visit by suggesting attractions and dining that match your interests. Genie then maps out the ideal Theme Park day for you. No worries if you don't prefer one of the recommendations, changing a recommendation is as simple as rubbing the lamp, but without having to use a wish! The Genie service does utilize the standard attraction queues and attraction wait times can vary throughout the day.

    Genie+ is definitely the best option to level up your trip! If you're familiar with the previous Fastpass+ system, then Genie+ is the replacement for that. It is a paid option that allows you to choose an arrival window for certain attractions and use the Lightning Lane queue to experience the attraction. Utilizing the Lightning Lane queue typically means that you have a shorter wait, which is a huge benefit!  You can upgrade to the Genie+ service in the My Disney Experience app after you purchase your Theme Park ticket.

    Individual Lightning Lane
    I like to describe Individual Lightning Lanes as basically Genie+ for the biggest, baddest thrill attractions! Think Avatar Flight of Passage, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, etc. The Individual Lightning Lanes also allow you to choose an arrival window and use the Lightning Lane queue to experience the attraction. Again, utilizing the Lighting Lane queue typically means that you have a shorter wait. You can purchase two Individual Lightning Lane entrances per day. Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resorts Collection Hotel can purchase their first Individual Lightning Lane at 7:00 a.m. on the day of their theme park visit. Guests staying off property can purchase Individual Lightning Lane entrances once the Theme Park opens.

    I hope this helps, Ron. If you have more questions as you plan, let me know. We're here to help! No matter which Genie service you choose, it’s sure to add phenomenal cosmic powers to your Walt Disney World Vacation!

    Until next time,
