    Will Genie+ service or Lightning Lane be available for our family trip starting Sept 10th at DisneyWorld? My wife and I are in our 70's and both have medical issues which makes standing in long lines very difficult.

    Welcome Home, Ken!

    Thank you for visiting planDisney and sending me your wondEARful question about Disney Genie+ and Lightning Lane entrances.

    I regret to inform you that we do not know exactly when Disney Genie service will make its magical debut in Walt Disney World Resort. At the present time, we only know it will debut sometime this fall. As much as I would love to tell you that Disney Genie service will be available when you arrive at the Most Magical Place on Earth on September 10, it does not seem likely as the fall season begins September 22. Regardless, I will hold out hope that your "dreams will come true," Ken!

    However, if you and your wife have difficulty tolerating extended waits in traditional, standby queues due to disability, you may both qualify for Disability Access Service (DAS). DAS does not provide immediate access to Walt Disney World Resort attractions but does allow Guests to request a return time for a specific attraction. The return time is comparable to the current standby wait. This allows the Guest who is using DAS to enjoy other experiences in the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks instead of physically waiting in standby queues. Please click here to learn more about DAS now.

    Ken, please keep your eyes and EARS peeled on the Disney Parks Blog for Disney Genie updates. Additionally, I encourage you to review the experience update page in advance of your upcoming vacation.
    If you have any additional questions, please be sure to visit us again. We are always hEAR to help you!

    Wishing you a Practically Perfect Vacation,
