    Hi, My group is heading to Walt Disney World April 17-23. Can we book our first genie + ride from the airport in Denver the morning of the 17th? We have a park reservation for Epcot, but will not arrive until mid-day. Appreciate your help with this.

    Welcome to planDisney, Laura!

    Close your eyes. Can you picture it? Tall spires that stretch towards the sky, the shimmer of blue hues, and glimmers of gold here and there … Yes, I’m describing Cinderella Castle, but you won't have to close your eyes and imagine its beauty much longer since you will be at Walt Disney World Resort in less than ONE MONTH. Hooray!

    Laura, you absolutely can book your first Disney Genie+ service Lightning Lane from the airport in Denver! I have done this in the past with no issue. If you have access to in-flight Wi-Fi, you can also book an additional Lightning Lane during your flight, depending on the timing. Remember, you can book your first Lightning Lane beginning at 7:00 a.m. EST, then you can book your next Lightning Lane two hours after the official park opening time of the day. For the remainder of the day, you can continue booking Lightning Lanes every two hours or after tapping in at the Lightning Lane entrance for the prior selection, whichever comes first. If you are ever unsure of when you can book your next Lightning Lane, just head to the Tip Board in your My Disney Experience mobile app and look for the banner at the top of the screen that tells you when you are eligible to book your next selection.

    I hope this information proves helpful, Laura. If you have any other questions pop up, please stop back by and let us know. Enjoy every moment of your magical vacation, and say hi to Mickey for me!

    See ya real soon,
