    What is Lightning Lane & Genie Plus? How does it work?

    Hey there, Shalanda!

    Welcome back to planDisney! This is such a great question. Your summertime adventure to The Most Magical Place on Earth will be here before you know it, so let's go over Genie+ and Lightning Lanes so you can get back to finalizing all the magical details.

    Disney Genie+ is an all-new feature found in the My Disney Experience mobile app that gives Guests the ability to spend less time in line and more time on their favorite attractions. Beginning at 7 AM on each day that you are visiting one of the four theme parks, you can book a Lightning Lane for one of the select attractions through the app. You will receive a one-hour time window to enter the attraction through the Lightning Lane entrance, offering a much shorter wait time. After you use your first Lighting Lane pass, check the My Disney Experience app to see when you can book your next return time. You can continue to reserve Lightning Lane passes throughout the day up to park closing, as long as there is availability. Genie+ also includes access to new PhotoPass lenses and behind-the-scenes audio tales. The current cost of Genie+ is $15 per day per Guest plus tax and is subject to change. You can add this time-saving feature through the My Disney Experience app on the morning of each of your theme park visits. Simply tap the three bars at the bottom of the main screen and select the My Genie Day option. You will see a purple banner in the middle of the screen that says "Get Disney Genie+ for Today". Choose this link to set up the service in a matter of moments, no magic lamp required! 

    There are also Individual Lightning Lanes offered. These attractions are a separate purchase outside of Genie+ and you can book up to two per Guest per day. You do not need to purchase Genie+ to buy Individual Lightning Lane options. Price and availability vary by attraction You can see all the details in the My Disney Experience app during your visit. Individual Lightning Lanes can be a huge time saver when you want to experience some of the latest attractions including Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Remy's Ratatouille Adventure!

    We'll see ya real soon!
