    Will I get on-site perks such as early park entry and the ability to choose my lightning lane selection at 7am on my check in day if I will not be checking into my Disney resort until later that day?

    Heigh-Ho Anna,

    Planning your Walt Disney World vacation is an exciting time and with your vacation just around the river bend, we here at planDisney, are happy to help you navigate your journey and answer your questions. Guests now have a new service to help plan their Practically Perfect Day, Disney Genie. With this complimentary service, found via your My Disney Experience mobile app, Guests will answer some questions about their Disney Day and a suggested itinerary will be created around their Must-Do's.  Even better, this itinerary will smartly accommodate any changes throughout the day. 

    Guests, also, have the option to upgrade to the Disney Genie+ service and/or Lightning Lane options, at an additional cost. With Disney Genie+ Guests, staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, will get a head start on the day. Guests, with a Walt Disney World Resort reservation, can pre-purchase Disney Genie+ for the entirety of their trip before arriving or do so a la carte beginning at 7:00 a.m. on each day of their vacation. However, if you are only purchasing Individual Lightning Lanes and staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, you can not pre-purchase before your arrival but can do so each day of your vacation beginning at 7:00 a.m., including your arrival day. 

    Become comfortable navigating your My Disney Experience mobile app this is your vacation hub, before and during your visit. This handy dandy tool will keep you immersed in the magic and make sure you are creating magical and memorable moments to last a lifetime.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
