    Hi, I have purchased my park passes but I am not staying in a disney resort. Can I purchase genie plus ahead of time?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Disney Genie+ is such a great way to get the most out of your theme park day at Walt Disney World! Genie+ can no longer be purchased ahead of time, even if you are a Disney Resort Hotel guest. For anyone visiting Walt Disney World, you can purchase Genie+ the morning of any given day at 7 am. You only buy it one day at a time, so if you are purchasing it on your first park day, you buy it only for that day, not for multiple days.

    Where do you buy Genie+?
    Just open your My Disney Experience App on your smartphone that morning, and you will see a prominent link to make that purchase. As soon as you do, you can start making your selections. So, make sure you know your first choice for the day!

    What can't I do at 7 am?
    When it comes to these programs, the one thing you won't be able to do at 7 am that a Disney Resort Hotel guest can do is make an Individual Lightning Lane reservation. Those guests can start making these at 7 am, and all other guests can start at the posted park opening time.

    BONUS TIP #1

    While I have always been able to purchase the Genie+ service on my park days at Walt Disney World, be aware that they can sell out for the day. Disney has a limit to how many Genie+ purchasers they allow on any given day. So, it would not be a bad idea to plan on getting up in time to purchase it right away, just so you don't miss out.

    BONUS TIP #2

    These Lightning Lanes do not mean that you can only ride an attraction if you have Genie+ or an Individual Lightning Lane reservation. There are still traditional lines at all attractions.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
