    When purchasing the park tickets we upgraded to Genie plus. What does that get us exactly? The last time we visited we had wristbands for fast passes, do we need those again?

    Hello Sarah!

    You have made an excellent choice when you upgraded your Walt Disney World tickets by adding the Disney Genie+ Service! The Disney Genie+ Service opens up a whole new world of opportunities for your park experience, including tailored recommendations, a personalized daily itinerary, Lightning Lane options, Disney PhotoPass Lenses, and so much more. If you have MagicBands from a previous Walt Disney World vacation and they are linked to your My Disney Experience Account, then you can use them to enter the Lightning Lane attractions that you have selected with your Disney Genie+ Service.

    If you have purchased the Disney Genie+ Service, then you can make your first Lightning Lane selection at 7:00 am on the day of your visit. Once you have redeemed your initial choice or the time arrival window has passed, then you can use the My Disney Experience app to check your My Day Itinerary or Tip Board to see when you can make your next Lightning Lane selection. You can make Lightning Lane selections up to the regular park closing for that particular day.

    You can also purchase Individual Lightning Lane options (two per day limit, which is an extra cost per Individual Lightning Lane attraction). Selections for the Individual Lightning Lane can be selected and purchased at 7:00 am for Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resorts and at the time of park opening for all other Guests.

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation grants you all of your wishes!
