    Haven't been to Disneyland in 5 years, so I am super new to the new Genie. I have purchased park hoppers and the Genie+. My question is do I need to purchase the lightning lane separately or is that included in the Genie+?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Tracey! You’re as welcome as can be to planDisney!

    First off, I'm so excited for you to return to the Happiest Place on Earth after five years! There are so many new adventures for you to embark on, from joining the Resistance at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, to slinging webs at Avengers Campus

    It sounds like you have your Park Hopper tickets all set, which is a great first step. You’ll also want to make sure you have your park reservations set for your day of arrival. You’re one step ahead of the game by having already added Disney Genie+ service to your tickets, too. I recently had a chance to utilize Disney Genie+ and I was amazed at the number of attractions I was able to experience throughout my Disney day. 

    To use Disney Genie+, you’ll first want to download the Disneyland app, which is your best handy helper in the theme parks. With Disney Genie+, you’ll have the opportunity to select the next available arrival window for Lightning Lane entrances at select attractions throughout the day. Currently, there are 19 attractions to choose from between both theme parks, and you can book your first Genie+ attraction as soon as you enter your starting park. When selecting Lightning Lanes, just keep in mind that you won’t be able to “hop” to the other park until after 1:00 PM.

    Also, there are currently three attractions not included in Disney Genie+, including Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, and Radiator Springs Racers. These attractions can be purchased as Individual Lightning Lanes, which are separate from Genie+, and you can purchase up to two different Individual Lightning Lane attractions each day. 

    Tracey, did you know that Disney Genie+ also includes unlimited downloads of your Disney PhotoPass service downloads from the day? I think this is one of the best perks of Genie+! Be sure to look for PhotoPass opportunities on select attractions and at dining locations, too.

    Here’s a helpful series of short videos to help you figure out how to begin using Disney Genie+ service. Also, here’s the Entertainment Schedule for your arrival day, so you can start mapping out your magical plans!

    I hope this information helps you get the most out of Disney Genie+ service, Tracey! Wishing you pixie-dusted fun at the Disneyland Resort this April!

    See ya’ real soon,
