    Do we need to have Genie+ to make dining reservations?

    Hi again Melissa and welcome back to planDisney!

    I'm happy to answer another question for a fellow Canuck, especially if it helps you make dining reservations for your upcoming Anniversary trip this summer! With the debut of Disney Genie service, it came with a lot of new capabilities that included the ability to make dining suggestions over the course of your visit. 

    You may be happy to hear that neither Disney Genie nor Disney Genie+ service are required at all to make reservations at any of the dining locations at Walt Disney World Resort. Instead, you can make your dining reservations directly on the Walt Disney World Resort website or via the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    In fact, these are currently the only three ways that guests may use Disney Genie+ service (which may be subject to change with other features in the future):

    Speaking of using mobile devices, I can however offer my personal Prince's Pick, Tip or Trick that has totally changed the way that we visit Disney Destinations around the world - using Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering to expedite all of the eats and treats each day! It has been a game-changer for each friend or family member that I recommend it to and a great way to pass the time while waiting in line for a ride or attraction.

    Hope this was helpful, and as always please keep coming back to planDisney to ask us whatever you need answered ahead of your next trip.

    Stay warm and dream of the sunny skies that await you on your upcoming Disney journey!
