    We are not staying at the resort for our visit to Disney World. Can we still reserve times for rides when we purchase our tickets? In the past we were able to do that but I wasn't sure where or how to do that. We are planning on going in February.

    Hiya Heidi and welcome to planDisney. I remember the good old days when the Disney FastPass+ system was in full swing and we could reschedule attractions before stepping foot in any theme park. Covid-19 happened and the old system was replaced by Disney Genie+ Service.

    With the paid Disney Genie+ Service, each Guest is allowed to pre-select attraction times similar to the former complimentary Disney FastPass+ system by using the My Disney Experience App. It is a way to spend less time in line by skipping the standby queue and is the same for everyone whether Guests stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel or off-property.

    Here is how it works. Beginning at midnight the day of your visit you may purchase Disney Genie+ Service. Everyone in your party will need to have it in order for everyone to take advantage of the benefit. The first selection may be made at 7:00 AM from the comfort of your bed if you would like. After that, there are time restrictions on when the next reservation may be made. Be sure to look at the complete list of all the attractions that participate because some are Virtual Queue or Standby only in addition to a different paid-for service called Individual Lightning Lane. Virtual Queue is new to Guests of the FastPass generation so get familiar with strategies for this, especially with TRON Lightcycle / Run and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Since your last Walt Disney World Resort vacation has been a while, please check out all the enhancements on the My Disney Experience App. A huge advantage is Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. We use it regularly so we are not standing in line to order food.

    Heidi, there have been lots of changes over the years but one thing still stays true, Walt Disney World Resort theme parks always allow you to enter a "world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy." Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions and have an enchanted visit.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
