    We are planning on purchasing Genie + for our upcoming trip. There are a few day when we will be park hopping. Is is possible to make a lightning lane reservation in the second park while we are still in the first park?

    Hiya Amy! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy! Your Walt Disney World vacation will be here before you know it! I'm sure you are excited to escape the cold, wintery weather in favor of the warmer Florida climate. You have so much to look forward to during your stay, including the 50th Anniversary Celebration that is still underway across all four parks and Disney Resorts Hotels. Be on the lookout for tasty treats, nighttime entertainment, and exclusive merchandise to help commemorate this special event!

    Disney Genie+ has been a welcomed addition and is a great service to add to your day to help maximize your time in the parks. If you plan to park hop during your visit, you will be able to make Lightning Lane selections for that park throughout the day. In fact, you can even start making them as early as 7 AM for any park you plan to visit that day. Just make sure that the arrival window is for a time of the day you will be in that park. Also, Disney Genie+ does not allow you to select a specific time, it will only provide you with the next available time slot.

    There are plenty of strategies to use when purchasing Disney Genie+. It will entirely depend on what attractions you are attempting to make Lightning Lane selections for and the times they end up being available. It's possible to make selections for the second park you plan to hop to throughout the day, this way you'll have a few ready to use upon arrival. Ideally, you can use this service on a few attractions for the first park you visit, then start making a selection for the next park you hop to just prior to heading over there. 

    Amy, remember to purchase Disney Genie+ each day you plan to use it. Simply log on to your My Disney Experience App and tap on the "Purchase for Today", which can be found in the purple bar that reads "Disney Genie+ Service". You'll need to do this each day you plan to use it. I hope you have a magical trip!

    See ya real soon!
