    I’m confused what Disney genie offers, it says photo pass. Do i have to also buy memory maker to get my photos? Also if so can i buy memory maker after and still link my photos to my account?

    Hi Sydney,

    Welcome to planDisney! Hopefully, I can clear up a few things about the Genie+ system for you to ensure smooth sailing during your vacation to Disney World.

    I love using Genie+ while I am at Disney World because it helps me maximize my time in the theme parks and enables me to skip a few long lines during the day. If you purchase Genie+ you will be able to select a time to come back to your favorite attractions throughout the day and skip the regular line in exchange for the Lighting Lane. This will significantly shorten your wait and help you to visit more attractions in a day as a result. You can only reserve one Lightning Lane entrance at a time and cannot reserve another one until you have either experienced the reserved attraction or 2 hours have passed since you secured the reservation, whichever occurs first.

    I find Genie+ super helpful when I start using it first thing in the morning to experience as many attractions as possible. If you begin using it later in the day, a lot of the return times have already filled up and it is not as much value for your dollar. I normally can fit in at least 3 Lightning Lanes a day sometimes many more when I start reserving my return times right when the park opens!  

    When using Genie+ you also will get ride photos on select attractions. These photos will be automatically taken while you are enjoying the ride and will appear in your My Disney Experience account for complimentary download. You will still need to buy Memory Maker to receive any of the photos taken by PhotoPass photographers throughout your trip as these are not included with Genie+. If you purchase Memory Maker before your trip it will be at a discounted rate but you can purchase it after your vacation and still get all of your vacation photos from the last 30 days.

    Happy Planning,
