    Our passes are for March 5 to Epcot. When can I purchase Genie+? I've tried to but the app states I have to wait 40 days. Is that correct?

    Hey, Victoria! Welcome to planDisney.

    I'm so glad you stopped by with your question. With an upcoming Disney trip on the horizon, I bet your excitement levels are through the roof! 

    You're going to have such a fantastic time at EPCOT, Victoria. Did you know that the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will be happening by the time you arrive? This is one of my favorite events of the year at Walt Disney World Resort. I absolutely adore all the topiary displays throughout the park. I'm very excited to see the brand-new topiaries of Mirabel, Antonio, Isabela, and Luisa from Disney’s “Encanto.” If you get hungry (and who doesn't get hungry at a Disney theme park?) then the Outdoor Kitchens are "practically perfect" places to enjoy a delicious bite to eat. There's also so much to do, from live music to activities for the kids. Get ready to be wowed!

    I don't know about you, Victoria, but I'm all about getting on as many attractions as possible. Therefore, Disney Genie+ is a must! By purchasing Disney Genie+ you upgrade your park ticket to include "phenomenal cosmic powers." These powers enable you to select Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions throughout the theme parks. These entrances allow you to skip the regular standby lines and enjoy more attractions in your Disney day. Starting at 7:00 AM on the day of your visit, you'll be able to make your first Lightning Lane selection. Once you enjoy that attraction, or two hours after making your selection (whatever comes sooner), you can then make another Lightning Lane selection. You can keep doing that throughout the day until there are no more Lightning Lane selections available.

    At this current time, you can only purchase Disney Genie+ on a day-to-day basis. Therefore, you'll have to wait until March 5, Victoria. On the morning of your visit, simply open the My Disney Experience Mobile App, and on the home screen you should find something in purple that says, "Disney Genie+ Service." Tap "Purchase" and then "Continue" and you'll be taken to a list of all the people in your party that you've added via My Friends & Family. You're going to want to select the members of your party that will use this service. Once you do that, you'll then make your purchase.

    I hope that's helpful, Victoria. Make sure you experience Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, Soarin' Around the World, and Frozen Ever After. Also, don't forget to ride my favorite attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. There is no standby line for this ride, therefore, you'll have to either purchase an Individual Lighting Lane entrance at 7:00 AM or join the virtual queue. You're going to love it!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Victoria.
