    Hi I purchased 9 day tickets with Genie back in April 2022 can I use these to schedule ride now (Nov 4) or do I have to wait till the day of park visit

    Hi Robert! Welcome to planDisney!

    You and your party are going to have such an amazing time when you visit Walt Disney World Resort next month! What a holiday celebration it will be when you see snow falling on Main Street U.S.A. and get to enjoy celebrating both Christmas and ringing in the new year at The Most Magical Place on Earth! 

    From the sound of your question, it seems like you made your Theme Park Ticket purchase before June 8, 2022, when Guests were still able to add Disney Genie+ Service to their vacation package or Theme Park Ticket purchase at the time of booking.   Now, all Guests interested in having a friend like Genie+ need to purchase this magical service each day that they plan to use it.  

    No matter when you purchased Disney Genie+, the process of booking over 40 of your favorite rides, attractions, and shows at all four Theme Parks is the same. On the day on which you plan to use Genie+, you'll want to pop into your My Disney Experience mobile app a few minutes before 7 a.m.  Right at 7 a.m. sharp, you and other Guests are able to start selecting your first "Lightning Lane" of the day! With a Lightning Lane, you and your party are essentially "skipping" the line, or at least walking into one that is most likely much shorter than the standby queue.   You'll be able to book another Lightning Lane as soon as you scan into your first Lightning Lane selection or two hours after the Park's official opening time. 

    If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, the Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin, Swan Reserve or Shades of Green you'll also be able to book your first Individual Lightning Lane purchase at 7 a.m.! This is a real perk, as these are the top attractions within each Park that are not included with Genie+ and all other Guests need to wait until the official Park opening time to book these Individual Lightning Lanes. If you're counting down the days until you can ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance or save the galaxy on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, make sure to purchase your Individual Lightning Lanes as soon as possible!

    I hope that cleared some things up, Robert! Come back and see us here at planDisney if you have any more questions before your upcoming vacation!

When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
