    Hi I saw a reply in regards to Genie+ plus for UK guests, I just wanted to understand in more depth how this works, can you purchase it for the whole period of your stay up front, or is this now to be purchased on a daily basis when you visit the parks?

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney Scott. 

    We love to make sure all of our plans are in line here, so I commend you on reaching out for that clarification for your holiday to the Walt Disney World Resort. Disney’s Genie+ Service lets you use Lightning Lane entrances at select attractions and experiences. I love this service and it makes my park visit so much smoother. Most guests can expect to use 2-3 Lightning Lanes per day. My best tip for using it is always to check and see what attractions surround your next Lightning Lane. You have an hour window to return and can usually get on a shorter wait ride, go shopping, or even grab a snack. If you use this plan that means if you can use 2-3 that means you will be on a minimum of 6 attractions without waiting in a long line. 

    When it comes to purchasing Genie+ you will need to download the My Disney Experience App and just like all guests you can purchase it on the day of your visit. You will want to purchase it at the very latest 6:45 a.m. This is so you can make your first selection at 7 a.m. for the park you will be visiting. Each park will have different costs and are subject to change. You can also purchase a multi-park Genie+ service if you have Park-Hopper tickets. 

    I hope this information helps you understand how this service works and how to purchase it for your stay. Stop back by if you need any other tips for your visit. 

    Have a magical day, 

    Jeremy A.
