    May I purchase Genie+ in advance? If so, how can I do that?

    Hello Daniel!

    Wow, I can tell you are excited about your Walt Disney World coming up soon! I used the Disney Genie+ Service in the four theme parks on my June 2022 Walt Disney World vacation. The Disney Genie Service is available to all Guests of Walt Disney World, accessed within the My Disney Experience Mobile App or Website

    The option to pre-purchase the Disney Genie+ with a Walt Disney World ticket purchase or add Disney Genie+ to existing tickets has been discontinued (as of June 8th, 2022). You must purchase Disney Genie+ through the My Disney Experience App on the day of your park visit. You will have to purchase Disney Genie+ every day on the day you plan to go into a theme park. Remember you will need a Theme Park Reservation for the first park you plan to enter each day. Genie+ Service is an upgrade that can be purchased in the My Disney Experience App after midnight on the day Guests are going into a theme park, giving Guests access to Lightning Lane Options (the Lightning Lane Options have replaced FastPass in Walt Disney World). More than 40 Lightning Lane experiences in the four theme parks are included in the Disney Genie+ Service. If you have purchased the Disney Genie+ Service, you can make your first Lightning Lane selection at 7:00 am on the day of your visit. Once you have redeemed your initial choice or the time arrival window has passed (typically 2 hours), you can use the My Disney Experience App to check your My Day Itinerary or Tip Board to see when you can make your next Lightning Lane selection. You can make Lightning Lane selections up to the regular park closing for that particular day. 

    Guests can purchase up to two Individual Lightning Lanes per day (for select rides in each theme park, typically, there are one to two selections in each theme park, but you can only ride an Individual Lightning Lane attraction once per day). You select a return time for your Individual Lightning Lane from what is available, and you can simultaneously hold a regular Lightning Lane and an Individual Lightning Lane.

    I hope your next Walt Disney World vacation grants you all your wishes!
