    Can I purchase genie passes ahead of time?

    Hey there, Aaron!

    Welcome to planDisney. We're delighted you've dropped by with a fantastic Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! It sounds like you'll be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth very soon... the final countdown is officially on! Before you pack your bags for your enchanting escape, let's chat about Disney Genie+ service and how it can help you optimize your time in the theme parks.

    Aaron, at the time of writing, unlike at the Disneyland Resort, where Guests may pre-purchase theme park tickets with Disney Genie+ service included, this handy service cannot be purchased ahead of time for use at the Walt Disney World Resort. Guests may purchase Disney Genie+ service in the My Disney Experience mobile app beginning at 12:00 a.m. on the day of their theme park visit and may make their first Lightning Lane entry selection at 7:00 a.m. that day. Though this is the current practice, it's possible that changes to Disney Genie+ service may be announced this year, as was previously published by the Disney Parks Blog. I encourage you to keep an eye out for any future announcements about this!

    To ensure you're ready to begin booking Lightning Lane entry selections at 7:00 a.m. sharp on the first day of your theme park visit, I encourage you to confirm you have the most up-to-date version of the My Disney Experience mobile app downloaded and your theme park admission appropriately linked to your account. Also, if a theme park reservation is required for your theme park ticket type, be sure you've made this reservation ahead of time to ensure there's availability for the park you're hoping to visit. Finally, be sure to check out the "Top 5 Disney Must-Dos" for this spring break season to ensure you're in the know about what's happening at The Most Magical Place on Earth this spring!

    Aaron, I hope you've found this information helpful as you gear up for an incredible trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. I wish you a magical vacation filled with thrills and laughter! If you have any additional planning questions, feel free to stop back by planDisney again anytime. We're here to help you make special memories at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Warm wishes,
