    What is policy with park hopping with Genie+ currently? Thanks Margel

    Hey there, Margel, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the panel with your question! It looks like you are preparing for the perfect Walt Disney World Vacation with Disney Genie + and the Park Hopper Option. In my opinion, Disney’s Genie + Service is the perfect way to upgrade your vacation! 

    Margel, Park Hopping privileges currently begin at 2 p.m. EST for Guests. This start time is subject to change, so I recommend keeping a close eye on your My Disney Experience mobile app during your visit to confirm the park hopping hours for your Theme Park days. Park Hopping privileges are also subject to Theme Park capacity restrictions. So if you are visiting during a busier time of the year, keep in mind that park hopping hours are not guaranteed to start at the stated time.

    Margel, with the Genie+ system, you can book Lightning Lane Entrances across more than one Theme Park. All resort Guests can book their first Genie+ Lightning Lane Entrance starting at 7 a.m. EST on the morning of your Theme Park day. Unfortunately, Guests are unable to choose an attraction return window and must select the next available time presented in the My Disney Experience mobile app. Since Park Hopping privileges begin at 2 p.m. EST, you will have to watch for an available attraction return window after 2 p.m. EST for the Theme Park you plan to hop to. For example, if you have Theme Park reservations for Magic Kingdom Park, but plan to hop to Disney’s Animal Kingdom after 2 pm, you can book an 8 a.m. Genie+ Lightning Lange attraction in Magic Kingdom Park and also a 2:15 p.m. EST for Kilimanjaro Safaris in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park (after you’ve waited the required time period).

    I hope this helps, Margel! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
