    If I’m staying off property can I still use Genie+? If so, when can we book using it? We’ve always stayed on property so don’t know the protocol! Thanks!

    Hi Jessica! You are less than one month away from your magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! I’m sure you’ve started your “countdown to Disney!”
    Disney Genie+ is a great way to experience the attractions with minimal wait times! All Guests, regardless of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel or off-property, can purchase Disney Genie+ beginning at midnight on the date of their visit to the theme park! I recommend purchasing Disney Genie+ around 6:45 AM. All Guests can then make their first Disney Genie+ attraction selection beginning at 7:00 AM.

    Jessica, while most attractions in the Disney Parks are covered by Disney Genie+, there are one or two attractions in each park that are not covered by Disney Genie+. For those attractions, Guests can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane. Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane beginning at 7:00 AM. Guests staying off-property can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane when the park opens for the day.

    I hope these park-going tips are helpful as you continue your planning! Come on back to planDisney in these final weeks before your vacation! We’re happy to help!

    Dreams do come true!
