    how do i make reservation for rides

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Rebecca! I'm so glad you're hEAR planning your trip! 

    Rebecca, I'm as eager as Abu searching for treasure to help you navigate the Whole New World of Disney Genie, so let's grab our Magic carpet and begin! Available in the My Disney Experience Mobile App, Disney Genie helps to plan your day by taking your preferences into consideration and providing suggestions. You can also access wait times and purchase an upgraded version that allows you to skip the stand-by queue: Disney Genie+ or a la carte Lightning Lanes.

    Rebecca, since you specifically asked about reserving rides, the only way to do that is by purchasing one (or both of the upgraded options) and booking attractions the morning of your visit. This can be done through your My Disney Experience Mobile App or if you know that you'd like to add Disney Genie+ to each day of your trip, you can call in and have this upgrade added to your ticket in advance. Disney Genie+ provides Lightning Lane access to over 40 attractions over all four theme parks. 

    Please note that there are two attractions per park that are NOT included in this purchase, but available as a la carte Lightning Lane options. So, for example, if you know that you want to pledge your alliance to the Rebel cause and riding Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is your top priority, you can purchase a Lightning Lane for only this attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios at park opening through the app (or at 7:00 AM if you are a Disney Resorts Collection hotel guest). 

    Rebecca, I hope this information is helpful as you're looking ahead to your upcoming trip. I encourage you to download the most recent version of the My Disney Experience Mobile App and begin browsing through it at home, so that when you get to the park you're a 'ole pro! Best wishes for a Magical visit. Please come on back to planDisney with any additional questions.
