    I’m purchasing tickets and would like to add the lightning pass but don’t see the option.

    Hi KJ! Greetings from a fellow Palmetto State resident!

    The countdown to Walt Disney World is on! In not too long, you will be in sight of Cinderella Castle ready to fly with Peter Pan, plummet down mountains, and enjoy a Dole Whip!

    We've never had a friend like Genie+ before, so let's use a wish to better understand this new system. When purchasing tickets, you make numerous choices- dates, type, number of days- on the first page of the process. After making all these decisions, you are guided to a second page where your add-on options are listed-Memory Maker and Genie+. Picking Genie+ is the magic element that allows you to choose Lightning Lane access throughout the day at the parks. Beginning at park opening or 7:00 am for Walt Disney World Resort Guests, you may select your first Lightning Lane time. As soon as you tap into that ride, you may grab your next one. On a recent trip, I was able to snag half a dozen in the Magic Kingdom and then park hop to Epcot and catch a few more.  

    Highly popular attractions, such as the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance require an individual Lightning Lane selection which is a separate purchase. This type of Lightning Lane access may only be obtained the day of your park visit; there is a limit of two per day. You do not need to have Genie+ to buy a Lightning Lane pass. Prices vary by date and attraction. 

    Wishing you a wonderful visit to see Mickey!
