    I'll be purchasing Genie + in the morning before we check in- and will have started online check-in already. Will those charges then post overnight (after we arrive) so that I can give the front desk Disney gift cards to cover my charges? Thanks

    Hi there, Ellen! Thank you for reaching out to planDisney! We are always happy to help!

    This is a great question. Disney Genie+ is a convenient and easy-to-use service that can really help you maximize the number of attractions you experience in a day and reduce the amount of time you wait in a physical queue line. You can use Disney Genie+ to book Lightning Lane reservations at over 40 attractions across the 4 theme parks. Plus, you can book up to two Individual Purchases of Lightning Lane Entry to the most popular rides at the resort each day. My family and I have really enjoyed these options the last few times we've visited the parks.

    You can begin purchasing Disney Genie+ at 12 AM EST on each day you are planning on using the service. Don't worry, you likely won't need to purchase it exactly at this time, but you should do so before 7 AM EST as this is when you can book your first standard Disney Genie+ reservations (and your Individual Lightning Lanes if you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel). Please note that  Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane selections are subject to availability.

    You will need to pay for the Disney Genie+ service and/or Individual Lightning Lanes at the time of purchase. You can easily do this on the My Disney Experience mobile app. On the checkout screen, you will be able to input a Disney gift card as payment!

    Be sure to take advantage of the Disney PhotoPass Lenses that are included with each purchase of Disney Genie+. With this feature, you get to use your phone's camera to snap pictures with themed effects! It's such a cool feature!

    Ellen, I hope you have a wonderful vacation. It's going to be here before you know it! If you have any questions in the future, please reach out to planDisney again.

    You've never had a friend quite like the Genie,
