    Hiya Lynne, welcome to planDisney!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation countdown is officially in the "too excited to sleep" zone. In theory, this gives you plenty of extra time to plot your must-dos and practice your My Disney Experience mobile app thumb choreography. With Disney's complimentary Genie service (three small lines at the bottom right of the home page --> My Disney Genie Day --> Get Started Now), you can declare which attractions, entertainment, and dining experiences are a priority for your party in advance. This streamlines the Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane reservation process on your park days by bringing your prioritized attractions to the top of the alphabetized list on your Tip Board (three small lines --> Tip Board).

    I've got magical news for you, Lynne. One Guest can book Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations for up to 12 members of their Family and Friends List at a time. That means one person can book the first Genie+ Lightning Lane reservation for your entire dandy dozen at 7:00 a.m. via the Tip Board of the My Disney Experience mobile app as long as valid admission, a theme park reservation, and Disney Genie+ service is linked to each person's My Disney Experience account or account profile. You can purchase Disney Genie+ service any time after midnight on each park day.

    If you are comfortable being the sole point person for your party's Lightning Lane reservations, Lynne, then you're all set for your first park day. If you'd like to appoint your niece as second in command, I recently provided another Guest with step-by-step directions to accomplish that very task. I find it helpful to have a second in command, especially for times when my party splits and makes separate Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations.

    I hope you and yours have a very merry visit to Walt Disney World Resort. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any follow-up questions.
