    I´m planning a trip to Disneyland, in Disney World Genie+ works different, if I´m staying at a Disneyland Resort (the Grand California) do I have priority to book earlier Genie+ individual and lighting at 7am?

    Hello and welcome back to planDisney, Margarita!

    How exciting to hear that you are planning a vacation to the Disneyland Resort this year! I am happy to help you with your Disney Genie+ question. 

    Let's start at the beginning! At the Disneyland Resort, you have two options to purchase the Disney Genie+ service. The first is acquiring it in advance as an add-on option when you purchase your tickets. Keep in mind that if you purchase the service in advance, you can only do it for the length of your ticket. The second option is to purchase the service on the day of your visit (after entering the park) as a single-day purchase via the Disneyland App.

    You can begin to select your Disney Genie+ Lightning Lanes and purchase Individual Lightning Lanes upon entering the Theme Park. I recommend making your Lightning Lane selections early in the day to maximize the service. It's also important to make any Individual Lightning Lane purchases early in case they sell out.

    Tip: A unique benefit of the Disney Genie+ service at the Disneyland Resort is that you get unlimited digital downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos. Ask your Disney PhotoPass Photographer for a 'Magic Shot' to reveal a magical surprise in your photo!

    As a Guest of a Disneyland Resort Hotel, you will also have access to Early Entry into a designated park for every day of your hotel stay. You can check the schedule for Early Entry on the Hours & Events Calendar about 30 days before your visit.

    I hope you find this helpful, Margarita. If you have any additional questions, you know where to find us!
