    I would like to know how to obtain Genie+ for my visits on Monday, April 3rd to Animal Kingdom & Thursday, April 6th to Magic Kingdom. I have tried to purchase on the app but have not been able to do so. Can you get your hand stamped; leave and return?

    You're as welcome as can be at planDisney, Jan!

    The magic is calling, and I am SO glad you answered! Both Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Magic Kingdom Park are so very unique in their own ways, and I can't wait for you to explore them.

    You'll be happy to know that once you've entered the theme parks for the day, you'll be able to leave and return as many times as you like during operating hours. My family loves hitting the parks first thing as they open, and then we like to take a nice break midday at our Resort hotel. During this time we like to relax by the pool. Then, once we feel rejuvenated, we return to the parks again!

    Jan, you'll be able to purchase Disney Genie+ beginning at midnight on the day of your visit. Because Guests are eligible to make their first Disney Genie+ attraction selection at 7 AM, I like to wake up and purchase Disney Genie+ service around 6:45 AM and then make my first attraction selection at 7 AM. You would do this for both visits; once on April 3rd and once on April 6th.

    The Disney Genie+ service will last all day during operating hours, and it works for several rides at the park, but not all of them.

    The more sought-after attractions of the parks are an additional purchase called Individual Lightning Lane purchases. This includes Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. The Individual Lightning Lane selections at Magic Kingdom Park include Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and TRON Lightcycle / Run. Guests of Disney Resort hotels and other select hotels can make their first Individual Lightning Lane selection at 7:00 AM on the day of their park visit. Guests not staying at a Disney Resort hotel can make their first selection when the park officially opens. 

    To check which rides are offered through Disney Genie+, please scroll down this page until you see Magic Kingdom Park Experiences and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park Experiences and select "Read More." 

    To purchase and book your Disney Genie+ selections, you will want to follow these steps:

    -Open up your My Disney Experience Mobile App.
    -Tap on the three horizontal lines on the bottom right of the screen, then select Tip Board
    -You'll see the option to purchase the service here; please select it to make your purchase. 
    -Once you have done so, head back to Tip Board. You can change the theme park towards the top of the screen and then scroll to locate the attraction you want to reserve for your party. 
    -Once you choose Book Experience under the Disney Genie+ option, it will have you confirm your entire party or select members of your party. 
    -After following the prompts and finalizing your selection, you're all set! 

    Wishing you an enchanting visit!
