    hello, Do you know not having a park reservation will work with the use of Tron or Guardians Virtual Queue? Assuming the system will somehow recognize/allow? Genie+ without the park reservation, you can schedule a 7am ride? we are staying at swan reserve

    Hi Guillermo,

    Welcome to planDisney! Your visit is fast approaching and I'm sure you're excited for the magic to begin. I'm happy to help as you finalize your plans.

    I think you might be referring to the 4-Day, 4-Park Magic Ticket offer which gives guests the opportunity to visit all four theme parks once, for one great value. While this offer is subject to blockout dates, it does not require guests to make theme park reservations to visit the parks. I have to admit, I was also wondering about joining Virtual Queues and purchasing Disney Genie+ Service with this particular ticket type. But have no fear! I reached out to a Cast Member who confirmed that as long as you've linked your tickets to your My Disney Experience App, the system will recognize your ticket type and allow you to purchase Disney Genie+ Service, Individual Lightning Lanes, and join the Virtual Queues without a theme park reservation.

    There are a few things to remember, however, so let's dive in. Once you've scanned into a particular park, let's use Magic Kingdom Park in this example, your ticket type would not allow additional visits to Magic Kingdom Park for the remainder of your ticket entitlement. You will be free to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and EPCOT once each over the remaining three ticketed days, but Magic Kingdom Park will no longer be an option for those remaining days. Similarly, now that Disney Genie+ Service is purchased by park, you won't have the option to change your mind and purchase Genie+ for another park on the same day. So just be sure your plans are firm before making that purchase. You'll also want to keep in mind that these special offer tickets will expire 7 days from initial use, or once all 4 admission entitlements have been redeemed.

    As a guest of the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, you'll be able to begin making Lightning Lane selections and purchase Individual Lightning Lanes right at 7 a.m. You'll also have the opportunity to join Virtual Queues at 7 a.m. as well, which do not require any additional purchase. They do require fast fingers though so be sure to preselect your party and hit the refresh button as close to 7 a.m. as you possibly can. If you are unsuccessful in obtaining a boarding group during the first Virtual Queue, you'll have a second opportunity at 1 p.m., once inside the particular park.

    I'd like to point out that the purchase of Individual Lightning Lanes can be in addition to, or in place of the purchase of Disney Genie+ Service. We almost always purchase Genie+ on our Magic Kingdom Park days but often skip it on visits to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and simply purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Avatar Flight of Passage instead. You can review the full list of attractions with Lightning Lane entrances and those available with the purchase of an Individual Lightning Lane, to make the best plan for your visit.

    Guillermo, I hope this was helpful. If I've misunderstood your request or you have a different ticket than what I've mentioned here please reach out to us again.

    Magic and memories,
