    I purchased tickets with the genie+ option. How do I schedule rides on the my disney experience app?

    Hello Juan,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question! Before you know it, you'll be in the middle of the World's Most Magical Celebration

    Just like the name implies, having Disney Genie+ gives you phenomenal cosmic power in the itty bitty living space of your mobile device. I don't know if you remember the old FastPass kiosks, but it's like carrying one of those in the palm of your hand. 

    You've probably already done this step, but make sure you've made reservations for the park you plan to visit each day. If you've purchased the Park Hopper Option, you only need to reserve the FIRST park you'll be going to each day.

    Another thing you can do right now is make sure you have My Disney Experience app on your mobile device and start getting familiar with all of the features. For Disney Genie+ the "Tip Board" is going to be your best friend. When you select it, it will show you all of the attractions for a specific park and the wait times, as well as the available Lightning Lane return times. You'll see a link at the top that allows you to change parks. Looking at this board a few times before your vacation will help you get a good feel for which attractions tend to have their Lightning Lanes completely booked early in the day, and which attractions are usually available all day long.

    Beginning at 7:00 AM on the morning you're headed to a park, you'll be able to make your first Genie+ selection. You'll simply head to the "Tip Board" for the park you are going to and click the "LL Disney Genie+" button for the ride you want to book. Then you'll select all of the members of your traveling party who will be using the Lightning Lane and confirm your selection. 

    You'll be able to make your 2nd selection either 1) after you've checked into the Lightning Lane of your first selection, or 2) 120 minutes after the park opens for the day. For the rest of the day you can continue to make selections either 1) after you've checked into a Lightning Lane or 2) 120 minutes after your previous selection, whichever comes first.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
