    Hello. Can Genie plus Lightning Lane be used during the night time extra magic hours in Magic Kingdom for Deluxe Resort guests? Does this event tend to have long lines? I did EMH night at MK a few years ago and the lines were longer than the daytime.

    Hi Wendy!  Welcome back to planDisney with another great question.

    With your Walt Disney World Resort vacation quickly approaching, I'm sure you want to finalize the details so you're all set and ready to enjoy the magic of the 50th Anniversary Celebration.

    Disney Genie+ service is not available during Early Theme Park Entry or Extended Evening Theme Park Hours.  My family and I participated in Extended Evening Theme Park Hours at Magic Kingdom Park on our recent trip and found wait times to be quite manageable.  While some of the most popular attractions did have moderate waits, most attractions had little to no wait.  Wait times overall were much lower than during regular daytime operating hours.  Because Extended Evening Theme Park hours are only available to Guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts, Deluxe Villa Resorts, Shades of Green, and the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, the number of Guests eligible to participate is much lower than the evening Extra Magic Hours that you might remember from a few years ago.  If you are staying at an eligible hotel, I definitely recommend taking advantage of Extended Evening Theme Park Hours  -- my family and I were able to experience quite a few attractions during this time.

    Wendy, I am wishing you a wonderful vacation!  Please let us know if you have any additional questions.  We are always happy to help.
