    I’m doing one day at disney. Do I have to purchase genie plus for each park?

    Hello Adrena,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Your day at Walt Disney World is going to be so much fun!

    As you probably know, your first challenge is figuring out where to spend your time. There is no way to see and do everything, but adding the Park Hopper Option to your ticket will allow you to visit more than one park during your day. You'll need to make a reservation in the FIRST park you plan to visit for the day. After 2:00 PM (or whenever park hopping begins) you'll be able to visit any of the other parks without a reservation.

    On the day of your visit, beginning at midnight, you can add Genie+ to help you experience some of the most popular attractions throughout all 4 parks. Your purchase will be good for the entire day, no matter which park you visit. Beginning at 7:00 AM you'll be able to make your first Lightning Lane selection. You can make selections one at a time, either after you've checked in to your previous selection or 120 minutes later, whichever comes first.

    Although it's possible and it may be tempting to try to visit all four parks in one day, unless your goal is to hop to all four theme parks, I wouldn't recommend it. You'll spend a lot of time traveling from park to park. I feel like it's much more enjoyable to keep your park hopping experience to two parks. It's a tough decision, I know. 

    Hope this helps. Have a magical day!
