    Hey there, Jennifer! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question!

    My favorite thing to do is plan Walt Disney World Resort vacations! I love deciding which new and old favorite dining experiences to do, which one (or six) of the Enchanting Extras I want to add, penciling in pool and relaxation time, and making my theme park itineraries to minimize time waiting in line and maximize park time. My favorite way to do this is to rope drop the theme parks (arrive before they open) and add Disney Genie+ to my Disney days. Before I used Genie+ for the first time, it was a whole new world, and the planner in me couldn't wait to figure out how to best use the service to maximize the magic. So, I'm thrilled to help you do the same!

    To find detailed information on Genie+ and how to use it, visit the Lightning Lane page on the My Disney Experience website. Scroll down the page and tap "Read More" to learn more about both Genie+ and the Individual Lightning Lanes. You can find a list of Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions and Individual Lightning attractions for each park and can even scroll down to read the answers to Frequently Asked Questions. 

    When I used Genie+ on my last Walt Disney World Resort vacation, I added it to my Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios days. I added Genie+ around 6:30 a.m. on the mornings that I wanted to use the service so that I was all set and ready to make my Genie+ Lightning Lane selections right at 7 a.m. on the dot. I chose the earliest time for one of my must-do attractions so that I could make another selection right after I tapped into my Lightning Lane entrance and did not have to wait two hours after park opening to make my next selection, and I tried to continue this strategy throughout the day. Since I was staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, I was also able to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane selection right at 7 a.m., and if you will be using both, I do suggest making your Genie+ Lightning Lane selection first and then purchasing your Individual Lightning Lane selection immediately after. My oh-so-magical pal and fellow planDisney Panelist, Jennifer, also offers some great tips in the last paragraph of this answer to another guest. Be sure to check it out! Now, you should be ready to unlock the Genie's phenomenal cosmic power on your next vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Jennifer, enjoy your planning magic carpet ride! Please stop by any time with any vacation planning questions you may have! You ain't never had a friend like planDisney!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
