    I purchased Disney genie, but there are no more lightning lane selections available for today, can I use it another day?

    Hi, Emmanuel, and welcome to planDisney! It sounds like you're enjoying a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation, so I hope you're having a terrific time. I've heard from other pals in the parks that Spring Break crowds have been out this week, and with the holiday coming up, you're going to be partying with lots of revelers. Let's look at Disney Genie+ service and how it will work during your visit.

    Disney Genie+ service is typically only valid on the day you purchase it. I understand your frustration that some rides ran out of Lightning Lane entry times, so I have one suggestion. Stop by Guest Relations near any theme park entrance and explain what happened. They'll be able to see what attractions you were able to book entry for and make suggestions. But since only two or three attractions are guaranteed, you will probably need to purchase the service again for another day. You can also stop at any blue umbrella in the parks; the Guest Experiences team will be happy to share any options.

    My strategy is to make that first Lightning Lane selection at 7:00 AM sharp. You can book your next experience two hours after the theme park opens or after you scan in to ride the first attraction. Watch your mobile app near the top of the Tip Board throughout the day because that will indicate when you can choose your next attraction, but remember that you can usually book one as soon as you scan into the current one. My family doesn't waste a single second booking our next attraction, but it takes some practice. I have total faith that you will master Genie+!

    Have you stopped to smell the roses at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival? It's a different vibe than hopping on thrill rides, but my family likes to slow down sometimes to take in all this festival offers. The stunning topiaries make fabulous photos, and the Garden Rocks Concert Series is the perfect way to end the day dancing. 

    Emmanuel, I hope you make some memories to treasure during your trip. Stop by planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
