    Hi, We have a trip coming up to Disney in November. We live in the uk. Will we be able to take advance of the new Disney lightning lane changes (formerly Genie+) and book things 7 days prior to our trip. With Genie+ it would not allow you to access from uk

    Hey Kristian! 

    Welcome to planDisney! So many new changes were recently announced as the Disney Genie+ service will transform into Lightning Lane Multi Pass. You are correct in that guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel can purchase Lightning Lane Multi Pass before their trip and begin booking times to access an attraction's Lightning Lane entry and then use it during the day when they arrive. Sadly, however, this advance purchasing via the My Disney Experience Mobile App can only occur with guests from the United States and Canada. Guests from the United Kingdom will have to wait until they arrive in the United States to join in on the Lightning Lane fun. Don't worry; the price will remain the same whether it is 7 days before or the day of your trip to the Parks.  

    This may not be as convenient for you as it would be for other guests and I am sorry for that. If you are visiting Walt Disney World Resort with a 14-Day Magic Ticket, you can still utilize that pre-booking opportunity for the second half of your holiday as you will be in the States! Pre-booking lets you book certain attractions with more flexibility. Three out of the four main Theme Parks have their attractions sorted into two groups. Group 1 has the most popular attractions while Group 2 has a larger selection. When pre-booking you can book one attraction from Group 1 and two from Group 2 so that when you arrive to the Parks you will have three attractions ready to be enjoyed. Since you can't use this feature till you arrive then consider relaxing that first week and consider purchasing Lightning Lane Multi Pass that morning or wait till your second week to have more attraction-filled days.

    I realize this may not be what you wanted to hear but I do hope this helps you still have a pleasant holiday. A lot can change with this program between now and November so make sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for updates! 

    Happy Planning!
