    Can you please clarify how Genie+ works? What time can you book your first attraction? How many can you book at a time? Do you have to wait until you use a booked attraction before you can book another one

    Hey there, hi there Glen!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question! Just like the character it's named for Disney Genie+ gives you phenomenal cosmic powers in the itty bitty living space that is your mobile device. Trust me when I say thinking about using Disney Genie+ is way more confusing than actually being in the park and using it. 

    It sounds like you've done some research on Genie+, so you know that it offers you the ability to book Lightning Lanes for over 40 attractions throughout Walt Disney World. All guests can book their first Lightning Lane beginning at 7 AM on the day of their park visit. You can only make one reservation at a time, and generally you have to use a booked reservation before you make another one. However, there are exceptions to that rule. Let's say you are visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios and you and your family really want to ride Slinky Dog Dash. It's a really popular attraction and the Lightning Lanes for the day typically book within minutes. So, hypothetically, if at 7 AM you reserved Slinky Dog Dash, but the return time was 3:45 PM, you won't have to wait until 3:45 to book your next Lightning Lane. You'll need to wait 120 minutes after park opening. If the park opens at 9 AM, you'll be able to book your next Lightning Lane at 11:00 even though you have the 3:45 Lightning Lane for Slinky Dog. Most of the time you either have to use your existing Lightning Lane or wait 120 minutes before booking a new one.

    You didn't mention it, but let's talk about Individual Lightning Lanes for a second. There are 2 extremely popular attractions in each park that you can't book a Lightning Lane using Genie+. Instead, if you want to skip the standby lines you can pay a separate fee for each guest who wants to ride the attraction. You can book Individual Lightning Lanes for 2 rides per day beginning at 7 AM if you are a Disney Resort Hotel guest, or park opening. You can purchase your 2 Individual Lightning Lanes at the same time, and you get to select the return time that works best for your schedule.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
