    How do i purchase genie plus

    Welcome to planDisney, Aimee! 

    Disney Genie+ is a fantastic way to save time waiting in attraction queues when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. Not only do you save time by using the Lightning Lane entrances, but it also gives you access to digital downloads of select attraction photos! How cool! This is in addition to the free Disney Genie service, My Day, which helps you plan your day based on your input. The Tip Board also shows you the estimated wait times for attractions and all the food options your heart could desire.

    Adding Genie+ is a straightforward process. First, you will want to ensure you have downloaded the My Disney Experience app and that all the guests you wish to purchase Genie+ for are listed in your Friends & Family list.  Then, as soon as the clock strikes midnight on the day of your visit, you can purchase Genie+ for a specific park or all parks if you plan to park hop. Tap on the "LL (Rides, Shows & Lighting Lane Entry)" on the top right of the app and then “Purchase for Today to Save Time Waiting in Line” at the top of the following screen. While you don’t have to purchase at the stroke of midnight, Genie+ can sell out, so I suggest purchasing as soon as you wake up. Since Genie+ allows you to make your first selection at 7:00 AM on the day of your visit, I typically set my alarm for 6:30 AM to wake up, make a cup of Joffrey’s coffee, purchase Genie+ and ensure my Family & Friends List is good to go, so as soon as the clock strikes 7, I am a click away from making my selections and jumping in any virtual queues.

    I hope this helps, Aimee. If you would like any suggestions on which attractions I think Lightning Lanes would be best used for, feel free to ask me a question.

    See you real soon!
