    Can I purchase Genie+ from my online MyDisney account from a computer? Or do I have to use the Disney app?

    Hi there, Vanessa, and welcome to planDisney! 

    Like a Wilderness Explorer, as a planDisney panelist, I am eager to help you make the most of your grand adventure at the Most Magical Place on Earth. There's only one way your upcoming vacation can go in my eyes, and that's UP! 

    Hopefully in the near future, we will see some of the My Disney Experience app features on the Walt Disney World Resort desktop site. However, at the moment, you can only purchase Disney Genie+ within the app. 

    As much as I love planning my vacations using my trusty computer, I rely heavily on the My Disney Experience app. The number one reason why? I can use it on the go! And that comes in handy because you're going to do a lot of exploring around the four theme parks and beyond. It's especially useful when you're making your next Genie+ Lightning Lane selection.

    Vanessa, you can purchase Disney Genie+ as early as 12 midnight the same day of your theme park visit. Depending on if and when it sells out for the day, you don't have to purchase it that early, but instead you can wait until you're ready to wake up and take on the day. 

    AN EXTRA GEM: Don't forget to make theme park reservations for each of your theme park days. A valid theme park reservation is still required to visit the parks. If you purchased your tickets via the Walt Disney World Resort website, you're probably already good to go. As Russell says in Pixar's Up: "That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most." You definitely don't want to be caught without being prepared!

    If you have any other Disney vacation planning questions, feel free to give us a holler here at planDisney. Any of us would be more than happy to lend a helping hand. Adventure is out there!

    Magic always,
