    How does Genie plus work? Do you have to pay every day for Trinity plus or you pay once for your whole stay? What if only a certain number of people in a party wanna go on rides? Do you just pay for them?

    Hi Thomas,

    I see that you are currently onsite at Walt Disney World and prepping to enjoy as much of the magic as possible. I love utilizing Genie+ but completely understand that it can feel a little overwhelming at first. Don't worry, once you start using it, it will feel intuitive.

    You will add Genie+ each day of your vacation. You can choose only one theme park or multiple theme parks daily. If you do not plan to park hop then you will only utilize Genie+ for the single theme park you are visiting each day and it will be slightly cheaper. You will also only need to add it for the people who are going on rides since it is utilized to decrease wait times for attractions.

    Genie+ is a service that allows you to use the Lighting Lane entrance for rides during your visit and is a great way to optimize your time riding as many attractions as possible. I find that I can typically get 2 or 3 Lightning Lanes each day that I purchase Genie+ and it works most efficiently if you start utilizing it first thing in the morning. You can only reserve one Lightning Lane at a time and will not be able to choose another Lightning Lane until you have either already utilized your Lightning Lane or 2 hours have passed since you made your initial reservation. The later you wait to activate Genie+, the less chance you have of snagging a Lighting Lane for one of the attractions with longer wait times. Keep in mind, you will still have a wait before you board the ride but it will be significantly shorter than the normal line.

    In addition to Genie+, you can purchase Individual Lightning Lanes for some of the rides that see a significant demand. These attractions include Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and TRON Lightcycle / Run at Magic Kingdom, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Hollywood Studios, and Avatar Flight of Passage at Animal Kingdom. I find purchasing the Individual Lighting Lanes to be the most effective use of time and money because these rides are some of the must-do attractions! When purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane, you will get a reserved time to come back and enter through the Lightning Lane to enjoy the attraction.

    I hope you have a wonderful trip!
