    I purchased Genie plus back in March for a December visit for $15. Will I have to pay the difference if the Genie plus rate for the day is higher? Or am I locked in at the $15 pre paid rate?

    Hey Howdy Hey Lori and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you so much for stopping by with your question on Genie+ pricing. I will be more than happy to share a little more insight into your question to get you all set for your upcoming trip!

    I am so happy to see your Magical vacation is right around the corner and best of all, you were able to lock in your Genie+ pricing! In most cases, if you were one of the lucky ones with some great instincts, you were able to purchase Genie+ with your ticket purchase to cover your entire trip. As you have mentioned Lori, pricing for Genie+ has recently changed to variable pricing depending on the day and capacity. As long as you have purchased it in advance, you should be all set and should not have to worry about any further charges for Genie+. If you do see any charges on your account or are prompted for an upgrade, I would make sure to bring this to the attention of Guest Services or the Cast Members at the front desk of your hotel to get these charges addressed. 

    One tip that I do have for you comes with booking your Lightning Lane Entry selections. I am sure you already know, but you can make your first selection starting at 7:00 AM on the day of your park visit. The next selection would open either 2 hours after the park officially opens or after you tap in to redeem your first Lightning Lane experience. I would make sure to try and book your Lightning Lane Entries towards the later morning and early afternoon when the parks are the busiest. If you can take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry, I would do this and get a few top attractions knocked out before the park opens to the general public. When the parks are at their maximum capacity, usually late morning and early afternoon, you are cruising through and redeeming your Lightning Lane Entries like a rockstar! 

    I hope this helped give you a little more insight into Genie+ as well as one strategy for planning your Lightning Lane Entry selections. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out and let us know, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
