    So I can only use the genie +pass every two hours?

    Hi Tennille,

    Thanks for bringing us your question today. I’d be happy to share all the ins and outs of Disney Genie+ Service. It might seem a little intimidating if you haven’t used it before, but I promise it’s easy to use and a really convenient tool to help maximize your park experience. Let’s dive in!

    If you haven’t already purchased Genie+ as part of your ticket or vacation package you’ll have the option to purchase it as soon as you’ve scanned into the parks, subject to availability. You’ll purchase right from the Disneyland App so be sure you have a method of payment stored before arrival to help expedite the process. Once the purchase is complete you can begin making Lightning Lane selections for available attractions. You’ll be assigned the next return window so take a look at the Tip Board within the app to see what works best for your schedule. I like to choose the earliest return time available so that I can make another selection as soon as I've scanned in for the attraction.

    But don't worry if you happen to be assigned a return time later in the day. Let's say you enter Disneyland Park at 10 a.m. and make your first Lightning Lane selection for a 3 p.m. return time at Indiana Jones™ Adventure. You'll have the ability to make another selection two hours after making your initial selection even if your first attraction hasn't been redeemed yet. Your Tip Board or My Day Itinerary within the app will always display the time you can make your next selection, which in this case would be 12 p.m. However, let's say you enter the park at 10 a.m. and reserve a Lightning Lane for "It's a small world" with a return time of 10:15 a.m. In that case, you can make another selection as soon as you redeem the Lightning Lane at the attraction entrance. Continue reserving and redeeming attractions one at a time throughout your magical day!

    Take some time to watch these helpful how-to videos and familiarize yourself with the attractions included at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. You'll also have the option to purchase Individual Lightning Lanes in addition to Genie+ if you really want to maximize your day. 

    I hope this was helpful Tennille. If we can answer any additional questions please stop back and let us know.

    Magic and memories,
