    When can Genie Plus be purchased at DisneyWorld?

    Hi there, Lee! 

    Welcome to planDisney, and thanks for stopping by with your question for us. 

    I have excellent news for you! You don't have to be at the theme parks to purchase the Disney Genie+ service; instead, you purchase it through your My Disney Experience Mobile App. Allow me to explain how the Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane services work and how to buy and make your selections when you're ready to do so!

    Walt Disney World Resort introduced the Disney Genie+ service, allowing Guests to enter through the Lightning Lane queues, one selection at a time. Guests are eligible to buy this service each day, one day at a time, for the duration of their visit. 

    You can purchase Disney Genie+ anytime after midnight on the day of your visit, and you can make your first Disney Genie+ attraction selection at 7 AM. I recommend waking up and purchasing the service at 6:45 AM and making your first Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane selection at 7 AM. With this selection, you can skip the standby queue and enter through the Lightning Lane line. 

    The Disney Genie+ service will last you all day during operating hours. Once your 7 AM selection has been made, you can make your following Lightning Lane selection after tapping through the first attraction's queue or after 2 hours from making your Disney Genie+ selection, whichever comes first. Please note: the 2-hour wait to make another selection begins when the park opens, even if you made your first booking at 7 AM. It works for several rides, but not all. If you scroll down this page, you can find a list of experiences offered through the service at each theme park.

    The next service you should consider is the Individual Lightning Lane Entry (ILL). Guests can add these with or without having purchased the Disney Genie+ service and choose up to two ILL selections a day, and their pricing varies. These are the highly sought-after attractions, like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Guests can purchase these beginning at 7 AM if they are staying at a Disney Resort hotel or at park opening if they are not staying on the property. If you'd like to see the experiences currently offered under ILL, please scroll down this page, select the park, and look under "Lightning Lane Entrances for Individual Purchase."

    To purchase and book your Disney Genie+ selections, you will want to follow these steps:

    -Open up your My Disney Experience Mobile App.
    -Tap on the three horizontal lines on the bottom right of the screen, then select Tip Board
    -If you need to purchase Disney Genie+, you can choose to purchase the service here and choose whether you'd like to purchase it for one park or multiple. 
    -Once you have done so, head back to Tip Board. You can change the theme park towards the top of the screen and then scroll to locate the attraction you want to reserve for your party. 
    -Once you choose Book Experience under the Disney Genie+ option, it will have you confirm your entire party or select members of your party. 
    -After following the prompts and finalizing your selection, you're all set! 

    Here are some How-To Videos that may help. You're now ready to have all the fun exploring the theme parks! 

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Lee!
