    Hello! I’m trying to finalize a booking for August for my husband & daughter. I know it’s 14 days for the price of 7 at the moment I’m not sure we’ll be at the parks each day. Do I have to buy Genie + for all days? Thank you!

    Hi Ellie! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question!

    I'm excited about your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with your family! I love that you are able to visit for an extended period of time. My family was able to take an 8-day trip this past February and we enjoyed having the extra time to be able to go at a slower pace. It allowed us to enjoy every moment and experience things that we might not have had if we were on the go.

    I still can't believe this amazing ticket deal that is being offered to all Guests residing in Great Britain. Being able to purchase 14-day tickets for the price of a 7-day ticket is an unbelievable value!  Even if your plan is to not visit the parks each day, you won't feel guilty about not using your park days since it will not cost you anything additional. 

    Ellie, you will have two options when it comes to purchasing Disney Genie+ for this trip. Your first option is to add it to the purchase of your park tickets before you arrive. If you choose this option, you'll need to buy it for the entire length of your tickets. The benefit to this is Disney Genie+ is discounted on a per-day basis when purchased ahead of time. The second option is to purchase it daily upon your arrival. This will give you the luxury of only paying for it on the days you plan to use it, with the downside being you will have to pay full price USD for the service. To purchase this way, log on to your My Disney Experience App the morning of your park day and tap on the three horizontal bars on the bottom right corner of the screen. Select "My Genie Day" and you will see a purple bar that reads "Get Disney Genie+ For Today". Tap on that to follow the prompts to complete the purchase. 

    You and your family are in for an amazing holiday this summer. With traditional meet and greets back at the Walt Disney World Resort, your daughter can hug and interact closely with her favorite Disney characters. I still think back to the first time my daughters got to meet Anna and Elsa for the first time. Once the initial shyness disappeared, they ran right up to the princesses and gave them the biggest hugs. 

    I hope you have a magical time during your stay! I would highly suggest doing the math on the cost of Disney Genie+ if you decided to buy it beforehand or daily. It will be interesting to see what the best value is!

    Happy planning!
