    If I purchase Genie Plus on the day of that I am going to the park, does some of the lightening lane reservations fill up? I am worried if I cannot purchase Genie Plus until day of will my ride selections already be booked up for the day.

    Hey there, Emily, and welcome to planDisney! The Genie has single-handedly helped me make the most of my Theme Park days! I personally think it’s the perfect upgrade to any Walt Disney World Resort vacation, especially if you are looking to board as many attractions as possible during your time in the Theme Parks! 

    Since you have one-day Theme Park Tickets, you will not be able to purchase Disney Genie+ Service before your arrival date. However, you can purchase the Genie+ service on the day of your Theme Park visit in the My Disney Experience mobile app. The wonderful thing about a Walt Disney World vacation is that your resort privileges begin on the morning of your arrival date at 12:01 a.m.! So if you are looking to add the Genie+ service on the day of your Theme Park visit, you can choose to purchase the service any time that morning after 12:01 a.m. I strongly suggest that you are up early (6:00 a.m. is my sweet spot) and ready to purchase Genie+ long before 7:00 a.m. on the morning of your Theme Park visit. Because 7:00 a.m. is when all Guests - including you - can book their first Genie+ Lightning Lane Entrance! The early bird definitely gets the worm when it comes to snagging Genie+! In my experience, there have been times when I’ve been in the parks and the Genie+ lightning lane reservations have been full, but these instances were typically much later into the day. So while I can not definitively tell you which ride selections will be available, in my experience I’ve always had some reservation availability throughout the morning hours.

    You can read this previous post to learn more about my personal strategy for using the Disney Genie+ Service.
