    When can offsite guests buy Genie +? I'm seeing two different answers online. One says midnight but the other says off site guests have to wait until 7am. We are staying at a Good Neighbor hotel if that makes any difference.

    Hi Tiffany! Thanks for bringing your great question about Disney Genie+! Disney Genie+ is an optional service that Guests may purchase to save time waiting in lines for attractions.

    Guests, regardless of whether they are staying on or off property, can purchase Disney Genie+ service beginning at midnight on the date of their visit to the theme park(s). Guests can then make their first Disney Genie+ selection beginning at 7:00 AM.

    Tiffany, I think I know where the confusion is arising. Most, but not all attractions can be accessed through Disney Genie+. The few attractions that can’t be accessed through Disney Genie+ can be accessed by purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane. Guests staying off-property can purchase their first Individual Lightning Lane at park opening time. Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can make an Individual Lightning Lane purchase beginning at 7:00 AM (before park opening time). 

    I hope this clarifies some of the specifics of Disney Genie+ service! Come on back to planDisney with more questions! We love to help! And, we’re all EARS!

    Dreams do come true!
