    If I purchase a LL at 7am can I get a 2nd one as soon as the park opens?

    Hi Michelle, welcome to planDisney!

    I'm only a morning person at Walt Disney World Resort. At home, the snooze button and my coffee maker are my bare necessities. At Disney, my internal Mickey clock has me up by 6:30 a.m. each day and I prefer to spend my coffee budget on Minnie ears. Can you blame me?!

    Disney Genie+ service is a great way to spend less time queuein' and more time doin' during your park days. You can purchase Disney Genie+ service via the Tip Board of the My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the app's homepage --> Tip Board) anytime after midnight each park day. You can purchase for anyone on your Family & Friends List with valid admission and a theme park reservation linked to their My Disney Experience account or account profile. I recommend purchasing Genie+ by 6:45 a.m. so you can book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m. If you also want to join the 7:00 a.m. virtual queue for TRON Lightcycle / Run or Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, you should do that before making your first Genie+ Lightning Lane reservation.

    If you book your first Genie+ Lighting Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m., Michelle, you cannot book your second one at park opening. Instead, you can book your second Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction as soon as you've tapped in for your first reservation or, depending on the next available arrival window for your first attraction, two hours after park opening. Allow me to demonstrate both scenarios.

    On a Magic Kingdom Park day, let's say you book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane at 7:00 a.m. for Peter Pan's Flight, the park opens at 9:00 a.m., and your arrival window starts at 9:15 a.m. As soon as you're finished using your method of entry (MagicBand, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card) to tap in with Cast Members at this attraction, you are eligible to book your next Genie+ Lighting Lane attraction. Some attractions have one touchpoint while others have two, so I recommend asking the Cast Member at each attraction entrance if there are any additional touchpoints. I also make it a goal to book my next Genie+ Lighting Lane attraction before I've even experienced my first. 

    For scenario two, let's say it's a Disney's Hollywood Studios Day and the park opens at 8:00 a.m. You book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane at 7:00 a.m. for Slinky Dog Dash and your arrival window starts at 4:00 p.m. You are eligible to book your next Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 10:00 a.m., which is two hours after park opening, since you won't be redeeming your first reservation until later in the day.  

    Arrival windows for the most popular attractions at each park book up quickly, which is why scenario two is quite possible. The early bird gets the best chance for an early arrival window, so practice that in-app thumb choreography and think happy thoughts as you book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m.

    If you're ever unsure about what time you're eligible to make your next Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction, Michelle, the time will conveniently be displayed on your Tip Board Banner in the My Disney Experience mobile app. To maximize your Genie+ investment, continue booking attractions throughout the day as soon as you are able.

    Hope to see you planning Disney at planDisney again soon!
