    Hi Can I use the Dining and Merchandise credit to purchase Disney Genie+? Thank you Rachael

    Rachael, welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet to get answers to your Disney vacation questions. January 2024 will be here before you know it and planning now is "practically perfect in every way."

    Unfortunately, Dining and Merchandise Credits may not be used to purchase Disney Genie+ Service and must be used to purchase food and merchandise only. We have tried this before and were told there are no exceptions to using credits interchangeably. Accepted forms of payment are found as you move through the Disney Genie+ purchasing process in the My Disney Experience app. The upside to this news is more chances to experience the delicious cuisine Mickey and the rest of the Fab Five are cooking up and a few more souvenirs you can take home as you fly over the pond.

    planDisney Pro Tip: One way to manage Disney Genie+ is to schedule the first attraction as early in the morning as possible and keep making Lightning Lane reservations for available attractions immediately after you tap into the current attraction. Choose the ones with the shortest wait times and watch for evening Lightning Lane availability times later in the morning to reserve evening attractions. This tip is to maximize the number of Disney Genie+ Service attractions.

    Rachael, I hope this information helps you plan the most magical vacation ever. Please write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
