    Hi, I purchased a hooper park ticket for th2le 29th oh Jan. I'm looking to set up my genie+. Is that something I can do now or do I have to wait for the day of?

    Hello Yesbel! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Oh Yesbel, you are so close to your trip that I am jumping for glee! I think you made a great choice purchasing a ticket with a Park Hopper option. Using Park Hopper alongside Disney Genie+ will lead to a whirlwind of excitement and minimal wait times! 

    Back in the day, Disney Genie+ was something you could have purchased before your trip but now it is something that can only be purchased on the day you visit the Parks. I suggest you purchase it before 7 am as that is when you can make your first Lightning Lane reservation. You can purchase Disney Genie+ right on the My Disney Experience Mobile App and make sure to select your whole party. If you wish to use Disney Genie+ at multiple Parks select that option during purchase, as well. Otherwise, you will be limited to one park. Since you plan on Park Hopping, strategize your Lightning Lane selections so that must-do rides in the Parks you are hopping to are ready to be enjoyed when you arrive. I like to keep an alarm on my phone to remind me when I can book another Lightning Lane. I don't want to waste a minute of my day so I am ready to pick another one when it's time. If you want to start preparing for your day now you can set up the complimentary Disney Genie service. Open up your My Disney Experience Mobile App and select right on the main page "Summon Disney Genie." Just click through the prompts and let Genie know when you are arriving and what you want to enjoy. Take care to select the attractions and entertainment you want to enjoy. By setting this up, Genie will organize the attractions you want in the order that will best interest you. He's so helpful! 

    I hope that I was helpful as well and if you have any more questions you know where to go

    Happy Planning!
