    How does genie+ work

    Welcome to planDisney, David. I'm happy to answer your question today!

    The Disney Genie+ Service is like having phenomenal cosmic powers in a tiny little space on your phone! At this time, you can purchase this service before you visit for every day of your vacation or you can purchase it for specific days each morning you'd like to use it on the Disneyland Mobile App. There's a bunch of flexibility with this service, which is why I like it so much!

    When your vacation arrives, if you have purchased the Disney Genie+ Service, you will be able to make Lightning Lane reservations, one at a time, starting at 7 a.m. These Lightning Lanes give you access to a shorter wait time than the general standby queues. After you have redeemed your Lightning Lane reservation, you may make another and continue to do so, one at a time, throughout the day. If the Lightning Lane reservation that you grab isn't for later on in the day, you will usually be eligible to make another Lightning Lane reservation 2 hours after making your last reservation. But don't worry, you can check the app to see when you're eligible to make another reservation. Please note that changes can be made to how this service operates so be sure to visit the Lightning Lane page on the Disneyland Resort website closer to your vacation to see if the same rules apply. This page will also tell you which experiences are included in this service.

    Some of the most popular attractions at the resort are not included in the Disney Genie+ Service. Instead, they are Individual Lightning Lanes. You can purchase up to two of these per person, per day and they are priced per person, per ride. You can purchase these in addition to the Disney Genie+ Service or on their own! Once again, the power is in your hands. Always remember that general standby queues are available for all of these attractions as well.

    These add-ons allow me to experience attractions with shorter waits, but really, I love that it gives me more time to snack and shop! And not only that, they allow me to take my time. I find that I can stroll more often, take in the sights, and notice so many of the details that those crafty Imagineers carefully place all around the parks.

    David, I hope you have a wonderful visit to the Disneyland Resort. Please reach out with any other questions and I'd be happy to help!
