    How do I purchase genie+?

    Hi Mathews, welcome to planDisney!

    When accessing theme park attractions during a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, you're sure to get more magic mileage when Disney Genie+ service is involved. Genie+ gives Guests access to Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions throughout the four theme parks. Lightning Lane entrances ensure less time waiting in line and more time riding, snacking, and basking in the EARidescent glow of Cinderella Castle

    For 2022 Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets, Disney Genie+ service can be added for the duration of your ticket length at the time of purchase. If you've already purchased theme park tickets, select ticket types allow you to purchase Genie+ in advance for the duration of your stay. To do this in the My Disney Experience mobile app, click the three small lines at the bottom right of the home screen --> Tickets and Passes. Scroll to your ticket and click the "Change Ticket" option to add Genie+. If you don't see this option, no worries, that just means you'll need to purchase Disney Genie+ service the morning of each park day in the My Disney Experience app. In fact, this day-of purchase option is my personal preference and will be required of all Guests wishing to purchase Genie+ starting in 2023.

    All Guests can purchase Disney Genie+ service in the My Disney Experience mobile app after midnight each park day. To do so, click those three small lines at the bottom right of the home screen --> My Genie Day. Next, scroll down to the purple banner and click "Get Disney Genie+ for Today." Follow the prompts to select your party from your Family and Friends list and finalize payment. I recommend completing this process by 6:45 a.m. so you can be on the Tip Board (three small lines --> Tip Board) ready to book your first Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m. sharp. 

    To book Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions as well as Individual Lightning Lane attractions, scroll to your desired attraction on the Tip Board (listed alphabetically by park and by pre-selected preferences) and click the box with "LL." 

    Lightning doesn't normally strike twice in the same place, except when that place is Walt Disney World! I hope you find attractions that strike your fancy during your upcoming visit, Mathews. PlanDisney is hEAR to answer any other trip-planning questions.

    Choose magic,
