    With the park hopper using the genie, can you use the lightening feature for a ride in each park? Or does it have to be just one park?

    Hello, Tiffany and welcome to planDisney!

    With the introduction of Disney Genie, Disney Genie+ and Lightning Lanes, the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort is certainly kicking off with some extra pixie dust!

    Since you're planning to double (or maybe triple) your fun by visiting more than one park per day with the park hopper option, let's talk about Disney Genie across parks. I'm happy to report that if you purchase Disney Genie+ you will be able to make Lightning Lane selections (at included attractions) at every park for that day. So, for example, if you begin your day at Magic Kingdom Park you could have Lightning Lane access to Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion before hopping over to Disney's Hollywood Studios where you could skip the standby queue and enjoy Lightning Lane access to Slinky Dog Dash and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™.

    It's important to note that you're only able to use the Lightning Lane feature once per attraction. So, in the example I gave above, if you breeze through the Lightning Lane access for Slinky Dog Dash but then you decide you'd like to ride again, you'll need to use the standby queue as Lightning Lane access will have been "used" for the day. You are, however, able to monitor wait times for all attractions through the complimentary Disney Genie.

    Now, Tiffany, there are two attractions per park that are not included in Disney Genie+ but are available for a la carte Lightning Lane purchase. Please take a few minutes and review those attractions HERE. Guests may only purchase two a la carte Lightning Lane attractions per day.

    I hope this information helps as you're planning your next visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth. If you have any additional questions, please come on back to planDisney where we love to help guests create their own Fairy Tale endings!
