    Hi, my phone cannot connect to the Internet, is there broadband in the park I can connect to so I can use the genie plus app?

    Hello there, Rachael! Welcome to planDisney. You must be very, very excited about your trip this week! 

    Rachael, I have good news for you. Disneyland Resort has complimentary Wi-Fi that you can connect to once you arrive! Once of my dear panel pals Jane, also from the United Kingdom, says she can connect to Disney Parks Wi-Fi during her visits with no issues. I would suggest keeping “Airplane Mode” on and “roaming” off, to avoid accidentally connecting to any cellular networks. 

    As you mentioned Disney Genie+, let me tell you more about why you ain’t never had a friend like him! 

    1. At Disneyland Resort there are Lightning Lanes for 19 attractions across the two theme parks. You can pick one Lightning Lane per attraction per day. For example, you can use the Lightning Lane for Space Mountain only once in a day, but you could opt to use the standby queue if you want to ride it again.

    2. There are three attractions not included in Genie+ - these have Individual Lightning Lanes you can purchase ‘a la carte’ per ride, with or without Genie+. These Individual Lightning Lanes can be purchased for up to two different attractions each day, so plan accordingly because you can’t do all three Individual Lightning Lane attractions in a single day. 

    3. The best and easiest way to find available Lightning Lane windows is in the Disneyland mobile app under the Tip Board. As you scroll down, for the attractions that have Lightning Lanes, you'll see "LL Disney Genie+" with a link to "Book Experience."

    4. You can make your next selection immediately after your current selection has been redeemed, or, if it’s been more than 120 minutes from the time you made the selection, even if your current selection’s arrival window hasn’t started, you can make a new selection! Example: at 9:00 a.m. you made a Lightning Lane selection for Space Mountain, for which the arrival window starts at 1:00 p.m.. At 11:00 a.m., you can make another Lightning Lane selection, even though you haven’t redeemed your Space Mountain Lightning Lane yet. Pro tip from my daughter - set a timer on your phone to remind you when to make your next selection!

    Rachael, I hope this information is helpful. It’s a whole new world out there!

    Enjoy your magic carpet ride,
