    If we're planning a park day the day we check in to our Disney Resort can we take advantage of the Genie+ at the earlier time to schedule ride times?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Janine!

    I'm so glad you stopped by while you're in full planning mode for your upcoming vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort. You'll be visiting right in the middle of the magical Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration - get ready for unique new experiences, attractions, and most important to me, great things to eat and drink!

    Disney's new Genie+ service is a great way to schedule your day, ensuring you get to experience the attractions that are most important to you with less waiting. Scheduling plus saving time ... it's a planDisney panelist's dream come true!

    Currently, Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can start making Lightning Lane selections with Genie+ starting at 7 a.m. each morning. It's one of the many benefits of staying in the magic!

    The good news for you is that this perk begins the day you are checking in to your Resort! The key to unlocking this helpful benefit is to make sure everything is linked up in the My Disney Experience Mobile App for each Guest for whom you plan on making Lightning Lane selections. This includes valid theme park tickets including Genie+ with valid Park Pass Reservations, as well as making sure that each Guest is listed on your linked Disney Resorts Collection hotel reservation to unlock that early access to Lightning Lane selections exclusive only to those staying in the magic.

    I hope you have a trip full of magic and pixie dust! Please reach out if there are any other questions I can help you with.
