    We purchased Genie passes. Do we still need to reserve spots for each park? They only allow me to reserve one per day Also, How do we register for the star wars event to get a light saber made ? Are wristbands previously received ok for this trip?

    Hiya Patricia! Welcome back to planDisney!

    It looks like a truly magical adventure awaits you in just a few weeks! April is a beautiful time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, as the weather is welcoming and the flowers are in full bloom at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival! If you haven't had a chance to experience the beauty of the Festival, I recommend stopping by during your stay! The larger-than-life character topiaries are eye-catching and make for great photos. The Outdoor Kitchens cook up some delicious bites for Guests to try as they explore the World Showcase. It is a can't miss experience!

    Patricia, even if you purchased Disney Genie+ during your trip, you will still need to make park reservations using the Disney Park Pass Reservation System. If you plan to park hop, you will only need to make a reservation for the park you are starting with each day. After that, you are free to hop to other parks after 2 p.m. without making an additional reservation.

    To build a lightsaber at Savi's Workshop in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, you can check availability and make reservations online. Just click the blue button labeled "Check Availability" to see what slots may be open during your trip. I was lucky enough to participate in this truly immersive experience and it was out-of-this-world! I liked having an evening reservation as I could see the true glow of my lightsaber after dark. This is one of the most popular activities at Walt Disney World and reservations can be made up to 60 days ahead of your arrival date. Since you are already within that window, there may be little to no availability left during your stay, but if you keep checking back leading up to your trip, you may get lucky and find a time slot!

    MagicBands are my absolute favorite Mouseketool! I never go to Walt Disney World without one! The best part about MagicBands is that they are reusable. If you have MagicBands from a previous visit, they will still work for your upcoming stay. Additionally, you will not have to do anything to activate them as they will still be linked to your My Disney Experience account and have all your plans stored within that magical little Mickey head!

    Patricia, thank you again for thinking of planDisney with your vacation planning questions. We are always here and happy to help make your stay a fairytale! Feel free to reach back out with any more questions as your stay grows closer.

    Ta ta for now,
