    I'll be visiting WDW next month and staying at a Deluxe. I'm an AP holder but my guest will be on a Park Hopper ticket. If we only need Genie+ for the afternoon park, can I purchase G+ for just that park and still book at 7am? Can I buy ILL at 7?

    Hey there, thank you for stopping by planDisney with your questions Jean.

    Someone who takes the time to plan your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is always alone step ahead of the others. A solid game plan can help you zoom around and hop from park to park while still getting to your must-do attractions. The Park Hopper Option gives you the opportunity to hop at anytime starting on your arrival date of January 9, 2024, and the masses are rejoicing. You can purchase Disney Genie+ Service on the day of your visit but you will have to wait until the second park attractions enters the time slots that coincides with your park hopping schedule before you can book Lightning Lanes. Individual Lightning Lanes can be purchased starting at 7 a.m. the day of your park visit. 

    If you will be visiting EPCOT during your visit make sure to try for a boarding pass to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. The Virtual Queue is what you will need to gain access unless you purchase and ILL. The Virtual Queue is available to everyone who has a valid park ticket starting at precisely 7 a.m. If you miss the earlier opportunity you will be able to try again at 1 p.m. as long as you are inside the park. 

    Hopefully, this information will help you decide if you are purchasing Genie + for your visit. If you have any other questions revisit us at

    Have a magical day,
