    How do I know which attractions are typically quick to enter and which likely make sense to reserve via Genie+?

    Hi there, Charly!

    I hope you are having a fabulous time planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! It sounds like you are making some practically perfect plans.

    Disney Genie+ service is a great way to access some of your favorite attractions using Lightning Lane entrances instead of the stand-by lane. I love using it because we can fit more magic into each Disney day and it also includes Disney PhotoPass attraction images that you can download. Guests can make their first Disney Genie+ service selection as early as 7:00 AM on the day of their visit.  "You must redeem an existing Disney Genie+ service Lightning Lane selection or wait 2 hours—whichever comes first—before making another Lightning Lane entrance selection through Disney Genie+ service. Please note: the 2-hour wait to make another selection begins when the park opens, even if you made your first booking at 7:00 AM."

    You will find a bunch of Disney Genie+ service tips and tricks through various Disney planning fan sites online, or even in social media groups, but what works best for one person, may not be the best for the next. It really depends on what attractions or experiences you really want to enjoy. I recommend downloading the My Disney Experience Mobile App before your visit to take a look at the wait times during the day for your must-do experiences. While attraction wait times do change from day to day, this should give you an idea of how long you may have to wait and help you decide whether or not to plan on using Disney Genie+ service if available. More popular attractions do tend to become unavailable quicker in the day, so keep that in mind as you are planning as well.

    Along with Disney Genie+ service, certain attractions are available only by Virtual Queues or by a separately-priced Individual Lightning Lane entry. Currently, TRON Lightcycle / Run and Guardians of the  Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind are only available to experience by one of these methods.

    Happy planning, Charly! If there is anything else we can help you with, please let us know! Have a wonderful vacation.

    Magical Wishes,
