    Do I have to be in a park in order to purchase a lightning lane pass if I plan on park hopping over to it?

    Hi Allison! Welcome to planDisney.

    Oh Boy! Sounds like a trip to Walt Disney World Resort is pending. I love that you are going to take advantage of Disney Genie+ Service to help maximize and customize your theme park visit. This question comes at a great time. I am currently enjoying a little magical time off. Yesterday, I utilized the Genie+ Lightning Lane options for my second park visit. Here's all you need to do.

    Through the "Tip Board" in the My Disney Experience Mobile App, simply tap "Change Park" and select the park you plan on park hopping later in the day. This will generate a list of "Attractions & Shows" with Standby Line wait times, Disney Genie+ availability, or Individual Lightning Lane selections. You do not need to be in the park and the app will adjust available times according to park hopping eligibility.

    Here's a helpful link to six short videos explaining various aspects of the Disney Genie+ Service features like Tip Board and My Day and Lightning Lane explanations. Remember, beginning at 7:00 AM you can make your first Genie+ Lightning Lane selections. Scroll through this link and select each park to view current Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions.

    Keeping it Magical,
