    Hi - I am looking to understand my options for a group of 10+ looking to go to Magic Kingdom on 7/3, hoping to reduce time spent in lines and maximize our day at disney. We have a range of adults and kids. Thanks, Ravi

    Welcome to planDisney, Ravi! It sounds like we have so much in common because when I visit Walt Disney World Resort, I'm always looking for ways to maximize the magic and I've got just the solution for your upcoming trip: Disney Genie+ Service!

    Disney Genie+ Service will save you some time in line by allowing you to book return times for select attractions so you can reserve a spot to come back and ride. That way, you don't have to spend that time waiting in the standby queue and you can use that time eating delicious snacks, riding another attraction, or taking in a show! Disney Genie+ Service is available for purchase each day beginning at midnight, and I recommend making that purchase before 7:00 a.m., which is when you can select your first Lightning Lane return time for the day. 

    Speaking of Lightning Lanes, there is another way to reduce your time spent in line for some of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World Resort. At each of the four Theme Parks, there is at least one attraction that offers Individual Lightning Lane, which you can purchase à la carte. These attractions are:
    Lightning Lane access for each of these attractions is individually-priced, and you do not need to have purchased Disney Genie+ in order to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane. You can buy both Disney Genie+ Service and Individual Lightning Lane selections through the My Disney Experience app every day, so you have the flexibility to decide which days of your vacation you want to use it.

    Ravi, I know that's a lot of information to take in! If you have any more questions about how Disney Genie+ Service works or the best ways to maximize it on your trip, you are welcome to drop me another question and I'll be happy to help.

    Have a magical day!
