    can you still purchase genie+ ahead of time or just on the day of your reservation? i thought something changed about this last summer?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Elke! You must be so excited about your trip to Walt Disney World Resort this week. It's a great idea for you to learn the ins and outs of Disney Genie+ service before you go, and I'm happy to walk you through how to purchase it.

    At this time, Disney Genie+ service is available for purchase beginning at midnight on the day you're planning to use it and is not available to buy in advance of that. You can complete your purchase if you're up around that time, or you can make your purchase when you're ready later in the morning. I recommend having that transaction completed before 7:00 AM, which is when the window for Lightning Lane selections opens. Having your My Disney Experience app open and ready to go right at that time gives you the best chance at snagging Lightning Lane return times for the attractions at the top of your wish list. 

    Being able to purchase Disney Genie+ on the day you use it makes it a super versatile vacation planning tool. You can choose to buy it on the days you want to ride a ton of attractions, and you can also choose not to purchase it on your more laidback days or when you're planning on spending lots of time at your Resort Hotel. My family really likes to take it slow and soak up the atmosphere at EPCOT and Disney's Animal Kingdom so we don't always purchase Disney Genie+ on the days we're going to be there, but we never miss a chance to use it at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios! It's one of the best ways to make the most out of your day at those Theme Parks. 

    I hope this answers your question, Elke, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
