    I have hotel (Bay Lake Towers), park tickets (7 days, 1 park per day), and park reservations. I'd like to add Genie+ for each ticket holder. How can I do that?

    Oh boy, Michael!

    Looks like you're already well on your way to a magical summer vacation at Walt Disney World Resort. I know Mickey & the gang would be impressed by all your advance planning, as am I! Let's see what we can do to make sure your trip is practically perfect in every way. 

    Disney Genie+ is an add-on service that gives you "phenomenal cosmic power," better known as the ability to shorten your wait time for a number of attractions and experiences throughout the parks. You'll be able to purchase this for each member of your travel party using the My Disney Experience App, beginning at midnight each day of your park reservation. If you're like Cinderella and need to be tucked in before the stroke of midnight, you should be able to purchase this add-on service when you wake up to start your day. I have seen sales halted as the day goes on during some of the busiest days, so just keep that in mind.

    You can purchase Genie+ for each day you have valid admission and a park reservation, but you aren't required to purchase it for every day you plan to visit. I almost always purchase Genie+ on days I'm visiting Magic Kingdom Park or Disney's Hollywood Studios, but I'll decide whether to purchase for EPCOT or Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park based on my top priorities during that trip. 

    Once you've purchased Genie+ you'll be able to start making Lightning Lane selections beginning at 7 a.m., and again every two hours after the official park opening, or once you've redeemed your first selection; whichever comes first. If you're staying at a Disney Resort Collection Hotel or a guest of other select hotels, you'll also be able to purchase Individual Lightning Lane entries beginning at 7 a.m. Individual Lightning Lanes often sell out quickly, so I'd suggest reviewing the list of attractions to determine the best plan of action for your priorities each day.

    A stay at Bay Lake Tower puts you within walking distance of Magic Kingdom Park, and just a Monorail ride away from the fun at EPCOT. Be sure to make time to experience the incredible evening entertainment at both parks before you head back to your resort at the end of the day. My personal favorite fireworks show Happily Ever After will make its triumphant return to Magic Kingdom Park in April, so you won't want to miss a moment of the magic!

    Please come back and ask us any additional planning questions as you prepare for your trip. I'd be happy to help you all make magical memories together.

    See you real soon,
