    We would like to use the Genie Plus Lightning Lane to see the 3pm parade at Magic Kingdom. What time can we reserve the Lightning Lane for the parade through Genie Plus?

    Greetings, Mana, welcome to planDisney.

    Disney Genie+ is a great tool when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. It allows you to save time waiting in the attraction queue by using the Lightning Lane entrance and gives you access to digital downloads of select attraction photos. This is in addition to the free Disney Genie service, My Day, which helps you plan the day based on your input, and the Tip Board which shows you the estimated wait times and view food options.

    Adding Genie+ is an easy process. First, you will want to make sure you have downloaded the My Disney Experience app and have all the guests you will be purchasing Genie+ for listed in your Friends & Family list.  Then, as soon as the clock strikes midnight on the day of your visit, you can purchase Genie+ for a specific park, or all parks, if you plan to park hop. Now, that doesn’t mean you have to purchase at midnight, I typically purchase Genie+ when I first wake up in the morning while getting ready to rope drop. But, in full disclosure, Genie+ can sell out for specific parks, but typically that only happens around holidays when crowds are larger.

    Once you have purchased Genie+ for all guests visiting with you that day, you will be able to purchase Lightning Lane passes at 7:00 AM for things like the Festival of Fantasy Parade, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, or my personal favorite, Pirates of the Caribbean, among many other options. 

    I hope this answers your question, Mana. Please come back to planDisney if you have any follow-up questions!
