    Can Genie+ be used during Special Ticketed Events? We will be attending the runDisney Post Race Party during the Food and Wine Festival this year and I was wondering if we would be able to use Genie+ Lightening Lanes during the party. Thanks!

    Hiya Samantha,

    Welcome to planDisney! There is something extra special about running a runDisney race at Walt Disney World Resort. I’m no runner, but I have run the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon before, and I made a lot of core memories during the race. I still remember limping around the World Showcase during the Post-Race Party, trying to get one of the festival booths on the other side (I told you I wasn’t a runner).

    Thank you for your excellent question! Disney Genie+ is incredibly helpful for maximizing your time in the Theme Parks and riding some of the most popular attractions during peak times. As a result, Genie+ is intended for use during normal operating hours and not during the Post-Race Party. Luckily, in my experience, you won’t really need to have Genie+ to enjoy the attractions. Similar to the Halloween and Christmas parties, only Guests who have purchased entrance to the party can attend, so the lines will be much more manageable.

    If this is your first runDisney race and you have any questions, I suggest reaching out to my fellow panelist Cindy. Our resident Bayou princess is an expert on all things runDisney and truly magic personified.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
