    Pedro from CA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I'm planning on spending the day at DCA before my special ticket event at DLR. If I purchase Genie+, will I be able to utilize it at DLR during the early entry period which would be during normal operating hours?

    Hello, Pedro! Welcome to planDisney, my fellow Californian.

    I see you are visiting the Disneyland Resort soon for a Disneyland After Dark event. Be sure to take lots of pictures, make time for entertainment, and enjoy specially-themed foods and drinks. Have fun!

    Regarding your question, I understand you are planning to visit Disney California Adventure Park during the day before the event but want to take advantage of Early Entry at Disneyland Park. That is one of my favorite benefits of staying at the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort. Remember that you must have a Park Reservation for the Theme Park that is open early, in this case, Disneyland Park. Additionally, I imagine you have a Park Hopper ticket or a Magic Key to be able to go between both Theme Parks during the day.

    Now, you will not be able to utilize Disney Genie+ during early entry admission. Only certain attractions, dining, and shopping are available. Before your trip, I recommend reviewing the early entry offerings, planning your must-dos, and having a backup plan just in case! 

    Once the park officially opens, you can begin making your Lightning Lane selections on the Disneyland App. You mentioned that you are also planning to visit Disney California Adventure Park. Starting at 11:00 a.m., you can start selecting Lightning Lanes at this park.

    Tip: Smile, Pedro! With the purchase of the Disney Genie+ service, you get unlimited digital downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos.

    I hope this answers your question, Pedro. We can't wait to have you at the parks!

    Your Pal,
