    How does Genie+ work in WDW? I know that I cannot purchase it the same time I buy my tickets. When can I purchase ? If we have 4 days tickets with 1 park/day , am I purchasing genie+ one time? Or do I need to buy each day for 4 days? Also how much are they

    Hi Lerma,

    Thank you so much for coming to planDisney with your Walt Disney World planning questions! I am happy to help you with how to navigate Disney Genie+ Service for your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World.

    You do need to purchase Disney Genie+ Service each day that you are visiting a theme park. This means that for your four-day trip, if you were going to purchase Disney Genie+ for each day, this would be four separate purchases, one on each day. In order to purchase Disney Genie+ Service, you will need to first be sure that you have valid theme park tickets as well as a theme park reservation for the day that you wish to purchase Disney Genie+ Service.

    You will be able to purchase Disney Genie+ Service on the day of your theme park visit, so you can make this purchase just after midnight on the day of your theme park visit. Then, you will be able to make your first Lightening Lane selection at 7:00 a.m. on the morning of your theme park visit. The Lightening Lanes will allow you to experience certain attractions with a shortened waiting time by allowing you to bypass the standby queue. Once you have used a Lightening Lane selection, or two hours has passed, whichever comes first, you will be able to make another Lightening Lane selection, and so on and so forth, throughout the day. Please note that the two-hour window starts at theme park opening time, even if you made your first Lightening Lane selection at 7:00 a.m. Disney Genie+ Service and Lightening Lane selections are subject to availability.

    One nice feature of purchasing Disney Genie+ Service day by day is that you might decide that you do not need it every day of your trip. Perhaps there is a theme park where you would prefer to relax a bit more and not need to take advantage of Lightening Lanes. Making the purchase each day means that you can skip a day if you want to.

    In terms of cost, it is variable by day so I cannot give you an exact answer. When you open your My Disney Experience mobile app to make your Disney Genie+ purchase and select Disney Genie+, it will give you the price for that day.

    Lerma, I hope that this information is helpful for you. Please do feel free to come back to planDisney with any further Disney vacation planning questions!
