    Hi Daniel, welcome to planDisney!

    You've found the right corner of the digital universe to bring all of your questions about planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. 

    Disney Genie+ service is a magical investment that gives you access to Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions throughout the four theme parks. Let's walk through a hypothetical park day that involves purchasing Disney Genie+ service for your family of four. 

    You can purchase Disney Genie+ service for you and your family members anytime after midnight each park day by clicking "Purchase" on the home screen of your My Disney Experience mobile app. Select your desired theme park or "Multiple Parks" if you have a ticket with the Park Hopper Option and would like to access Lightning Lanes at more than one theme park. The next step of the purchase process requires you to confirm your party. All members of your Family & Friends list with valid admission linked in My Disney Experience will appear for selection. I recommend purchasing Disney Genie+ service at 6:45 a.m. so you're ready to book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane reservation at 7:00 a.m. sharp. Expedite the checkout process by saving a payment method to your My Disney Experience account.

    At 7:00 a.m. you are eligible to book everyone's first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction via the Tip Board of the My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the app's home page > Tip Board > Scroll to desired attraction). Part of the Genie+ Lightning Lane reservation process also requires you to confirm your party. All members of your Family & Friends list with a Genie+ purchase linked to their account profile will appear for selection. I recommend starting with a popular attraction you all plan to experience together. When my kids were 5 and 9 their favorite attractions to experience together were Jungle Cruise and Peter Pan's Flight at Magic Kingdom Park.

    For Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations you are booking the next available arrival time for that attraction, which is a one-hour window. Throughout the day, you can book everyone's next Genie+ Lightning Lane after you experience the first attraction or at the time listed on the Tip Board banner of your My Disney Experience app. If your party wishes to split up and experience different attractions, you can customize the party members for any given attraction. If you do split up, I recommend trying for attractions with similar arrival windows, which gives your family a chance to join together again for later attractions.

    A note about timing, Daniel. Should any thrill seekers in your family wish to join the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT or TRON Lightcycle / Run in Magic Kingdom Park, you should attempt to join the 7:00 a.m. virtual queue before booking your first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction. I dug into those Disney details recently while answering another Guest's question.   

    My last tip is to practice your in-app thumb choreography before your visit, Daniel. Familiarize yourself with your Tip Board and use the complimentary Disney Genie service to customize your preferences before your visit (three small lines > My Disney Genie Day > Get Started Now).

    I hope this information helps bring the possibilities of Disney Genie+ service into focus. Please return to planDisney with any other trip-planning questions.

    Choose magic,
