    With park hopper, first day plan to start in EPCOT in the AM; then go to Hollywood Studios in the PM (with dining reservation). At 7am (staying at Disney resort) can we reserve time in the PM for Tower of Terror via Genie+ or must 1st reserve be in EPCOT?

    Welcome to planDisney, Steve! With your trip coming up just around the corner, I'm happy to answer this question on how to get the most out of Disney Genie+ service on your day at EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Steve, you've hit on one of my favorite itinerary planning strategies with your question today. Since the morning wait times at EPCOT tend to be pretty low, if I'm planning on going to Disney's Hollywood Studios later in the day I will stack my Lightning Lane selections for after 2:00 pm, which is when things typically get a bit busier. You can definitely do this starting at 7:00 am when the booking window opens, all you have to do is tap "Change Park" in the Disney Genie Tip Board and you'll be able to begin making selections for the Theme Park you plan on hopping to. 

    Here's where it gets interesting: if you continue to make your Lightning Lane selections at the earliest possible time, it is possible that you can arrive at Disney's Hollywood Studios around 2:30 pm with as many as four ride times lined up and ready to go. You can book Lightning Lane return times either as soon as you use one or every 120 minutes, whichever comes first, and since you're planning for later in the day you'll be booking every two hours. Your My Disney Experience app will show you the time you're able to book your next one, and I recommend setting an alarm for just before that time so you can maximize the number of Lightning Lanes for the day.

    I hope this answers your question, Steve, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
