    I’m having an anxiety attack thinking about using the genie plus system on our trip starting next week. With that said, if I’m staying at the Caribbean Beach, and I enter the park a half hour early (rope drop), can I walk on All the rides for that half hr

    Hello Daniel! You’re headed to the Most Magical Place on Earth next week! You’re already aware of “rope dropping” and the Early Entry Theme Park benefit for Guests staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel! You are one well-informed Guest!

    Taking advantage of the Early Entry Theme Park benefit is a great idea! You will be able to enter the theme parks 30 minutes prior to the official opening time! During that time, you will experience lower wait times for attractions. You don’t have to use Disney Genie+ to enter attractions. You will be able to use the traditional standby line to enter attractions. While you won’t be able to experience literally ALL the attractions during those 30 minutes, you will get a nice jump start to your Disney Day by taking advantage of that time! Daniel, here is a PRO TIP for you! I have been at the Disney Parks for the Early Entry benefit and have found that they will sometimes open the park even earlier than 30 minutes prior to park opening (sometimes 45 minutes or so). Keep that in mind while mapping out your plan for the day!

    Daniel, enjoy Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort! Be sure to try the coconut-pineapple bread pudding at Sebastian's Bistro! It's served with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream! It's absolutely amazing!

    Happy Planning!
