    Say it's 9 am and I book a lightning lane for 9:20 am. Will I be able to book another lightning lane after I use this one or will I have to wait the 2 hrs.

    Hi Caitlyn!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for sending this Disneyland Resort vacation planning question to us hEAR. I'm Kristen, and I'm so happy to be your planEAR today!

    This is a great question. The brand new Disney Genie+ add-on is very, very similar to the MaxPass and FastPass+ system from the days of yore. Yes, as soon as you redeem your Lightning Lane selection, you'll be able to make another attraction selection. Some folks like to do this while they're waiting in line as soon as they've entered the queue of the ride they just redeemed; some like to do this while they're on the attraction. (Especially if it's a show or something slow.) Be sure to click around this official Disney Lighting Lane webpage to lEARn which attractions offer Lightning Lanes in each park, as well as the differences between Genie+ Lightning Lanes and Individual Purchase Lightning Lanes. Also, be sure to download or update the Disneyland Mobile App to have all of the cosmic powers of Disney's Genie right at your fingertips!

    Pro Tip: Don't forget to make your Park Pass Reservations when you purchase your Disneyland Theme Park Admission Tickets so you can let Mickey know which parks you plan on playing in on what days.

    Bonus Tip: Have you hEARd, Caitlyn, that we just launched the brand new planDisney Podcast? Not only can you listen in from your favorite podcast platform, you can also watch each episode on Youtube! As if that wasn't cool enough already, the latest episode was filmed in the Ballroom scene of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion!

    I hope that this helped to solve your Disneyland question, Caitlyn, and to also pack an extra pinch or two of pixie dust into your upcoming Disney days! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Instagram account for even more tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort planning questions, We're All Ears!
