    How can I get genie plus for all days of my trip right now? I can only fine where to book it the day of, but I want to book it in advance, how can I do that ?

    Howdy Lauren! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Oh boy! I'm sure you and the rest of your traveling party are counting down the days until your holiday getaway. December is a great time to visit Walt Disney World! The parks and resorts are decked out in festive décor and there are added experiences to take part in during this time! Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is making its return this season, so if you plan to attend this amazing event, I suggest purchasing these special event tickets soon!

    Since Disney Genie+ debuted shortly after the start of the 50th Anniversary Celebration, there have been some changes to the way you purchase this service. Since June, you are no longer able to purchase it in advance of your stay. You will need to add it on each park day you wish to use it. Starting at midnight on the day of your park visit, you'll need to log on to your My Disney Experience App and scroll down until you see the purple bar that reads "Disney Genie+ Service". Tap on "Purchase for Today" and follow the prompts to add on this service for the Guests who want to utilize it. Then, starting at 7 AM, you can make your first Lightning Lane selection. Please note that you do not need to purchase directly at midnight since you can purchase at any point during that day. I suggest doing so before 7 AM so you are able to make your first selection as early as possible and you get the most out of your park day.

    I recently came back from an 8-day trip and used Genie+ about half of the time. One of the big positives to purchasing it each day is that you'll only pay for it on the days you actually want to use it. Previously, it was a requirement to purchase it for your entire length of stay, so there might have been certain days that you paid for it and didn't necessarily need it. On longer visits, there were times that we only wanted to go see the nighttime fireworks or eat dinner at an in-park restaurant. These days we decided not to purchase Genie+ and were able to save. 

    Lauren, the process to purchase the service using the app on your mobile device cannot be more simple. Once you do it for the first time, it will be a breeze for the rest of your stay!

    Have a magical day!
