    Good morning I was wondering if I can buy Disney genie plus in advance for single day tickets are only for multi-day tickets? We are planning to go in July and planning to get one park hopper day and one single day ticket but I couldn’t add genie plus now

    Hey Howdy Hey Kristen and welcome to planDisney!

    Celebrating our Independence Day is done in such a spectacular way in Walt Disney World Resort and I am so excited you will be there to take part in the festivities! As you continue to plan your trip, you might run into some issues with Genie+ advanced purchase due to a recent change with the offering. Let's get into the details and then talk about some exciting ways to celebrate our independence. 

    Just recently, Disney did announce a change to the advanced purchase of Genie+. For those Guests traveling to Walt Disney World starting on June 8th, you will no longer be able to purchase Genie+ in advance. You still can purchase Genie+ on the day of your park reservations and if you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you will be able to do so at 7:00 a.m. EST. After your purchase, you will also be able to make your first Lightning Lane reservation. 

    Walt Disney World is known for many things and one of the big attractions is the nighttime fireworks shows. In the past, Disney has celebrated our independence with special firework shows in Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, but have not been performed since 2019. Disney was able to confirm a noted change to their park schedule in July with the addition of Disney's Celebrate America-a Fourth of July Concert in the Sky nighttime fireworks show in Magic Kingdom. This show is scheduled for the nights of July 3rd and 4th and is a celebration you do not want to miss if you are onsite. If you do not have park tickets for your arrival date on July 4th, I would suggest finding your way to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort via Disney Resort Transporation and watching them from the beach. 

    I hope I was able to clear up the Genie+ recent changes as well as give you some more reasons to be excited about your upcoming trip. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
