    Hi My question is, if I make a reservation in Genie+ at 7am but it is for 4pm, for example, until after 4pm I can't make any more reservations?

    Hello, Mariola! Welcome to planDisney! 

    A visit to the Walt Disney World Resort next year will be a lovely way to spend a few summer days. Be sure to plan on splashing away at least one day at a Disney water park, too. It will be a nice break from the Florida heat, and they're so much fun!

    Okay, let's talk theme parks! Purchasing Disney Genie+ for your vacation is a great way to help organize your days and save you some time in line with access to the Lightning Lane entrances at many attractions. But what if your first Lightning Lane reservation isn't until later in the day? No worries, Mariola, because Disney has it taken care of! The number you need to keep in mind is 120 - as in 120 minutes. If you have a Lightning Lane reservation that occurs later in the day, you can make another reservation after 120 minutes have passed (or 120 minutes after the park opens if you made your selection early). Here's what that might look like using your example:

    7 a.m. - Make reservation for 4 p.m.
    9 a.m. - Park opens
    11 a.m. - Eligible to make a second reservation
    4 p.m. - Use Lightning Lane for original reservation

    If you make a second reservation at 11 a.m., you'll be eligible to make yet another reservation after you either board that attraction or 120 minutes have passed, whichever comes first. I know it may be a little confusing, so just remembering "120 minutes" might help you get the basics. Of course, a Cast Member can always help you one-on-one if you need assistance while you're there.

    Mariola, I hope this helps you plan your warm and sunny Disney days next summer. Thank you so much for stopping by to see us, and please feel free to come back again if you have any more questions. In the meantime, I wish you and your family a magical holiday season!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
