    We have park hopper tickets (but thru a conference) so we still have to make park reservations. My husband will be at the conference most mornings until 11. We will buy Genie+ for across parks. Can I make LL reservations for him in the AM for any park?

    Hey Colleen! Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so excited to hear that you're only a few days away from embarking on a magical journey to the Walt Disney World Resort. You're in for an unforgettable experience, and I'm positive you will have an absolute blast!

    As your trip is quickly approaching, let's talk about the Disney Genie+ service. You can purchase it on the day of your visit and choose one or more parks to use it in. You can buy it as early as 00:01 AM. Starting at 7:00 AM, you can make your first Lightning Lane selection for the first Theme Park you will visit that day and add your husband to the reservation. However, the catch is that you will be given a 1-hour return window to join the Lightning Lane queue. If your husband is not there during this time, unfortunately, he will lose the reservation.

    Also important to remember: When making your Genie+ Lightning Lane selections, please remember that you can only choose one at a time. If you want to make another selection, you'll have to wait for two hours or use your current selection first, whichever comes first. Also, just to clarify, the two-hour countdown starts from the park opening time, regardless of when you made your first booking.

    My best tip would be to keep your My Disney Experience app handy at all times. As soon as you know when your husband will be able to join you, make a Lightning Lane selection using the app. This way, he'll be able to join in on the fun and ride your favorite attractions as soon as he steps into The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    And here's a bonus pro tip: You can purchase different products for members of your travel group in a single transaction. This means that if your husband is only joining you for the second theme park of the day, you can buy a Genie+ Multiple Parks for yourself and a cheaper Genie+ for just one theme park.

    Colleen, I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any other questions, please just let us know. We're here for you, friend!
