    If we plan to start in Animal KIngdom and hop to EPCOT, do we have to buy the multi-park Genie+ or can we just buy one park, EPCOT? It isn’t clear to me if you can buy Genie+ only for the park we plan to hop to later in the day.

    Hi Michelle!

    Welcome to planDisney. I'm so glad you brought your question to me today. I love park hopping and Disney Genie+ Service so I'm happy to assist.

    When purchasing Disney Genie+ Service guests will be able to purchase for a single park per day or take advantage of the Multiple Parks option with valid Park Hopper Option tickets. At this time, the single park option is only available for the park where you hold a theme park reservation which in this case would be Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. If you'd only like to use Genie+ to make Lightning Lane selections at EPCOT or any other parks you plan to hop to after the current 2 p.m. hopping window opens, you'd need to purchase the Multiple Parks option.

    You'll also have the option to purchase up to two Individual Lightning Lanes that day in addition to or in place of Genie+. This would be a great option to consider if you plan to experience Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind since you won't be able to join the 7 a.m. Virtual Queue with a reservation for Animal Kingdom, and will need to have entered EPCOT in order to join the 1 p.m. Virtual Queue option. When my son and I visited in June and tackled a 4-parks/1-day challenge we opted to forgo Genie+ altogether. Instead, we purchased Individual Lightning Lanes for an afternoon ride on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT and a night-time ride on TRON Lightcycle / Run Presented by Enterprise at Magic Kingdom Park. There are plenty of options and combinations to consider, so I'm sure you'll decide on an itinerary that's practically perfect!

    If you'd like more personalized recommendations or have additional questions please feel free to reach out to me again. I'm wishing you a most magical visit next month!

    Magic and memories,
