    Can genie+ be purchased for a one day, one park ticket?

    Hey Howdy Hey Jennifer and welcome to planDisney!

    Disney Genie+ is such a great addition to your park ticket and experience throughout the day as well. With the ability to access Lightning Lanes, you will have the opportunity to experience some of the attractions with shorter wait times so you can spend more time enjoying the parks and snacks! Thank you for your question regarding the purchasing of Genie+, let's go over the details!

    Over the summer, Disney made a change to Genie+ that did affect your purchasing options. At this time, you can only purchase Genie+ on the day of your visit to the parks as long as you have a valid theme park ticket and reservation. On the morning you plan to attend the parks, you can purchase Genie+ right from your My Disney Experience app. The other benefit of the change is that you can pick which members of your party, if any, you wanted to purchase this addition for. So if you wanted to do this with just you, you will have the option to select whoever will be taking advantage of Genie+. 

    You should find the option to purchase Genie+ right from your My Disney Experience app by clicking the "Purchase for Today" button on the advertising banner or searching for Genie+ with the search option. Make sure to do this early as you will be able to make your first Lightning Lane selection starting at 7:00 AM EST. Your next window will open up 2 hours after the park opens or after you tap into your first attraction, whichever comes first. Disney has updated the Genie Services site as well for a few "How-To" videos on your experience which may be helpful. 

    One pro tip that I have for you when it comes to using Genie+ all has to do with timing. If you are staying onsite at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry and experience some of the more popular attractions with lower wait times before the park opens to the general public.  If you can, make your Lightning Lane selections for later morning or early afternoon when the parks are at their peak levels for crowds and get done what you can early. There is a timer that you will see on the app that will let you know when you can make your next Lightning Lane selection, don't forget to get your next one 2 hours after the park opens to stack a few close to when the parks are busy!

    Best of luck as you make your final arrangements for your upcoming trip. Please let us know if you have any further questions, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
