    I have park tickets for Jan 27-Jan 30, 2023. Can I purchase Genie+ ahead of time or do I have to wait until Jan 27? Also, do I have to purchase each day individually?

    Hiya, Ann! Welcome to planDisney where we love to grant wishes, just like... the Genie! 

    Ann, your Magical vacation is getting so close. I hope you're more excited than Abu with a snack. Now, let's talk about all things Genie+ so that you're ready to hit the parks running. 

    Genie+ is available for purchase the day of your visit (starting at 12:00 AM). You are not able to purchase in advance, so if you're having a late night like Cinderella leaving the ball, I would recommend purchasing right after midnight. Otherwise, you'll want to set that alarm and purchase it first thing in the morning. Ann, it's important to note that you will need to purchase each day individually. Currently, there is not an option to add it on for all days of your trip.

    You can begin making your Individual Lightning Lane selections at 7:00 AM for that day. If you are staying onsite at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you will have the option to enter the park early, before all other guests. If you're an early riser and wish to take advantage of this perk, I would recommend saving your first Lightning Lane selection until later in the morning, as you'll often find lower wait times in that first hour of the day. 

    Finally, Ann, if you have your sights set on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT, it's important to note that a virtual queue is currently available for this attraction. This is my family's new favorite attraction at the Walt Disney World Resort and if you're planning to help StarLord and his crew, I would recommend reviewing how to join the virtual queue or purchase an Individual Lightning Lane (not available with Genie+). 

    I hope this information is helpful as you continue to plan for your upcoming visit. Wishing you a trip as Magical as Jasmine and Aladdin's first magic carpet ride. Please come on back with any additional questions. We are always happy to see a returning guest.
