    how do I plan for a full filling family day at magic and animal kingdom with a 9 yr old without the frustrations of waiting in lines for hours. There is so much information, its hard to know where to go, where to start etc..

    Hello Charity! I think you brought your question to the right place! It sounds like you and your nine-year-old have a WISH to skip the lines while visiting the Disney Parks! Fortunately, the Walt Disney World Resort knows someone who can make wishes come true!

    Guests wishing to skip the traditional queues for rides and attractions are able to purchase a new feature known as Disney Genie+! This feature, available through your My Disney Experience app, allows Guests to skip the traditional wait in line for over 40 attractions throughout the four Disney Parks including Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Disney Genie+ is currently available as a ticket “add-on” at a price of $15 per ticket, per day. This will certainly help Guests save time and avoid some of those long waits!

    Charity, another option is to purchase individual Lightning Lane access to some of the most popular attractions. Individual Lightning Lane attractions at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park include Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, Avatar Flight of Passage, and Expedition Everest! Individual Lightning Lane costs vary by park and day of your visit. 

    See Charity, wishes can come true! And you didn't even need to explore the Cave of Wonders to find a magic lamp!
