    I have questions about our reservation. I would like to know about Magic Bands , and about Genie + and how it works please thank you

    Welcome home, Luciana! Your Walt Disney World Resort visit is HERE, and planDisney is happy to answer your questions. Let's talk about MagicBands, Disney Genie+ service, and maybe even some pixie dust.

    If your My Disney Experience mobile app is up to date and includes your theme park tickets and any other plans you've made, your linked MagicBand or MagicBand+ will contain all of that information right at your fingertips...or around your wrist! You can use your band to scan into theme park entrances, unlock your Disney Resort Hotel, make charges to your resort account, and more. If you haven't purchased one, bands of all colors and styles are available at gift shops throughout Walt Disney World. I may or may not have several bands to match my outfits!

    If you prefer to use your mobile device instead of a MagicBand, you can opt for complimentary Disney MagicMobile service. Once you set up this service on your phone, it will act as your theme park ticket and more. I enjoy the ease of my MagicBand since it's easier than digging through my backpack for my phone, but I have friends who love using MagicMobile. 

    Disney Genie+ service is an add-on product you can buy on the day of a theme park visit. I always purchase it early in the morning from the warmth of my hotel bed and make my first selection when the service begins at 7:00 AM. When you book an attraction, you'll see a return window indicating when you can head to the Lightning Lane entry and bypass the regular standby queue.

    You can book attractions throughout the day, every two hours, or when you scan into a Lightning Lane, whichever comes first. Your MagicBand will be your Lightning Lane entry ticket, too, so that little band really works hard! 

    Luciana, I'm sending pixie dust and sunshine so your visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth is full of fun and memories. Please stop by planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
