    I am going to be purchasing a lightning lane pass for the Animal Kingdom park, how many rides can i access with this pass?

    Jambo, Melanie, and welcome to planDisney! You're at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, so I hope your day is off to a WILD start. I love using Disney Genie+ service, so let's talk about what attractions it applies to for your trek through the far reaches of Walt Disney World Resort.

    You can purchase Disney Genie+ service on your mobile app by tapping the "Rides, Shows, & Lightning Lane Entry" tile on the Welcome screen. Look for Aladdin's blue genie pal near the top and tap "Purchase for Today" to read more about how the service works. At the bottom of that screen, you'll tap "Get Disney Genie+ Service," You'll see the option to select one specific park for the day or "Multiple Parks" if you have a Park Hopper ticket.

    Before you select, you can tap "See Experiences" to see a list of attractions offering Lightning Lane entries for each park. For today, I see seven experiences listed, including Expedition Everest—Legend of the Forbidden Mountain and Kilimanjaro Safaris, two of my favorites! In addition to rides, you can also choose a Lightning Lane entry for entertainment offerings like the Festival of the Lion King. 

    Another way to see the list of Lightning Lane entries is to tap the "Rides, Shows, & Lightning Lane Entry" tile, select Tip Board at the top of the next screen, choose your park, and toggle to "Show Only Disney Genie+ Lightning Lanes." You'll see the current Standby Line wait times and the next available Lightning Lane entry for each eligible attraction.

    You can also see a list of attractions online by tapping the park you plan to visit. This page also lists any Individual Lightning Lane entrances, if available. At Disney's Animal Kingdom, you can purchase a separate entrance for Avatar Flight of Passage.

    Since you can select a new Lightning Lane entry every two hours or once you've scanned in for your current attraction, my tip is to keep an eye on the Tip Board to see when you can book your next entry. Look near the top for the exact time you can select your next adventure!

    Melanie, it might take a little practice to master Disney Genie+ service, but like everything else, it's worth the effort. I hope you have a roaring good time today, and please stop by planDisney with any other questions.

    Magic awaits,
