    I’m super confused about Genie plus. I have an annual pass? How do I get genie plus? Can I book my genie plus in advance or do I need to wait until I’m in Disneyworld?

    Greetings Laura, and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you so much for bringing your question to us here at planDisney. Disney Genie+ is a service that allows you to plan your day by selecting experiences to use the Lightning Lane entrances to skip the standby line.

    Walt Disney World Annual Passholders can add this service to your My Disney Experience account as early as midnight of the day that you are planning to visit a theme park. You can begin to use Genie+ at 7:00 A.M. to make your first selection. If you are not a night owl, I would recommend that you complete your Genie+ purchase at least 10-15 minutes before 7:00 A.M. to avoid any glitches. You will need to have a park pass reservation for the park you are planning to visit.

    To begin your purchase, log on to the My Disney Experience mobile app and tap the more icon (3 horizontal lines) and tap the My Genie Day button. Scroll down and tap “Get Genie+ for Today.” Follow your prompt to complete your transaction. You are all set to begin making your selections at 7:00 A.M.

    As an Annual Passholder, you will need to repeat this process for any day that you wish to use Genie+ on future visits to the Walt Disney World Resort. This is the best year to be an Annual Passholder, with the 50th Anniversary Celebration in full swing, you will want to take advantage of all the new experiences created just for the celebration. My favorite is Disney’s Fab 50 Character Collection. 50 glamorous golden sculptures of my favorite Disney Characters. Can you find them all?

    One more thing to note is that you do not need to purchase Genie+ in advance if you only want to purchase Individual Lightning Lane experiences for the most popular rides and attractions. I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more questions, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
