    Can Genie+ be purchased and added to your park ticket in advance of arrival on your trip?

    Hi Kathryn! Thank you for reaching out to planDisney! We are always happy to help!

    Disney Genie, Disney Genie+, and Individual Lightning Lane Entry are some of my favorite things available at the Walt Disney World Resort right now. When I hit the parks, I try to maximize my time as much as possible. I've got rides to ride, shows to catch, and ALL the Disney snacks to eat! Now I'm hungry!

    Disney Genie is a free tool that you can use to help plan out your vacation. It is available on the My Disney Experience mobile app and will make suggestions based on your preferences. The best part? You can begin to load in your preferences ahead of time so that when each day arrives, it automatically knows what you want to do and will create a suggested itinerary for you. I mean, if that's not magic, I don't know what is!

    For an additional cost, you can also choose to purchase Disney Genie+ for each person in your party to gain access to the Lightning Lane for over 40 rides across the resort. This allows you to skip the main queue line at these attractions and save time in the parks! The price for this service can vary each day, so check on the app to see what the price will be on the day(s) you would like to use it. You can begin to purchase this service each day at 12 AM EST, not in advance. While you don't have to purchase it at 12 AM EST, you will want to do it before 7 AM EST as that is when you can make your first reservation for a Lightning Lane!

    In addition, you can also purchase Individual Lightning Lanes for some of the most popular rides at the resort. You can purchase up to 2 of these per person, per day. These can be purchased starting at 7 AM EST if you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel or when the park opens for all other Guests. At this time, I especially recommend it for Avatar Flight of Passage in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT. Please note that ride offerings can change at any time.

    Kathryn, I hope you have a wonderful visit to the resort. Please feel free to reach out to planDisney again should you have any questions in the future.

    You've never had a friend quite like the Genie,
