    When do you purchase genie+

    Welcome to planDisney, Paul!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question. Disney Genie+ is ideal if you want to skill the standby lines and enjoy more attractions during your Disney day. 

    Paul, you can only purchase this service on a day-to-day basis. To purchase Disney Genie+, open up the My Disney Experience mobile app, and on the home screen you should find something in purple that says, "Disney Genie+ Service." Tap "Purchase" and then scroll down and tap "Get Disney Genie+ Service." and you'll be taken to a list of options for your purchase. You'll need to decide which theme park you want to purchase Disney Genie+ for. If you have the Park Hopper Option and would like to use it for multiple parks that day, you can select "Multiple Parks." Once you make your selection, tap "Continue." You'll then be taken to a list of all the people in your party that you've added via My Friends & Family. You're going to want to select the members of your party that will use this service. Once you do that, you'll then make your purchase.

    It's worth mentioning you can also purchase Individual—or à la carte—Lightning Lanes. These are available for some of the more high-demand attractions in the theme parks (e.g. Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and TRON Lightcycle / Run). You can use this service with or without purchasing Disney Genie+. However, even if you have Disney Genie+, Individual Lightning Lanes do cost extra. The cost of each Individual Lightning Lane varies by attraction. You can book up to two Individual Lightning Lane entrances per day per Guest. Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel (and other select hotels) can book Individual Lightning Lanes starting at 7:00 AM. Those staying off-property will have to wait and book their Individual Lightning Lanes at the scheduled theme park opening time.

    I hope that's informative, Paul. Stop by again if you have more questions! We're always here to help fellow Guests plan their next Disney trip.
