    We purchased genie + with our disney world package back in February 2022 now that things have changed how do we use it?

    Hi Susan! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    I love hEARing from return Guests who enjoy visiting Walt Disney World Resort as much as I do.  I bet you have favorite rides and attractions, favorite dining locations at each of the four Theme Parks and even favorite characters that you love to meet and greet each trip.  I think you'll find that the memories you made on your last trip in February will make you even more excited about returning to The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    You'll find that using Disney Genie+ Service now is very similar to what you experienced during your trip in February.  The difference you'll find now is that instead of purchasing Genie+ Service for your entire length of stay as an add-on to your vacation package you'll need to purchase it separately for each day of your vacation.  You're welcome to purchase Genie+ any time after midnight on the day you wish to use it, right through your My Disney Experience mobile app.  Simply select "My Disney Genie Day" from the main menu, select "My Day" and then click "Get Disney Genie+ for Today"! Personally, I wake up just a few minutes before 7 a.m., purchase Genie+, and begin booking my first Lightning Lane and Individual Lightning Lane selections of the day!

    Since having Genie+ Service allows you and your party to essentially "skip" the lines of more than 40 rides and attractions throughout all four Theme Parks, to me it's definitely worth the little bit of extra you'll spend on it.  

    If you'll be a Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection hotel throughout your stay at Walt Disney World you'll be able to book both your Lightning Lane and Individual Lightning Lane attractions at 7 a.m. sharp.  Popular attractions go quickly so make sure to grab your most coveted rides right away!  If you're not staying at a Disney Resort you're able to make your Lightning Lane selections starting at 7 a.m. and your Individual Lightning Lane selections at the official Park opening time. 

    The rest of your day should look similar to your recent trip, with Genie+ allowing you to book a new Lightning Lane attraction every two hours or after you've redeemed your existing Lightning Lane, whichever comes first. 

    Have an amazing vacation, Susan, and please stop by and see planDisney again if you have any other planning questions!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. 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
