    How do you schedule the lightning lane?

    How’s it going, Joseph? I hope you are having a wonderful day so far!

    My son and I purchased Genie+ during our most recent trip to the Happiest Place on Earth, and we had a blast – not just because we crushed it on Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, but because we were able to enjoy so many attractions using Lightning Lanes.

    Whether you pre-purchased Genie+ with your ticket or you purchase the service upon arrival, you will not be able to begin booking your Lightning Lanes until you enter one of the theme park gates. Once you enter one of the theme parks, you will be able to book your Lightning Lanes on the Disneyland Mobile App. The option will be both on the app's home page, or you can book through the Tip Board (select the menu button in the bottom right-hand corner, then “Tip Board”).

    Guests will be able to book one Lightning Lane at a time. You will then have the chance to book the next Lightning Lane after using your previous one or after two hours have passed (whichever comes first).

    Before I let you go, I want to share with you another perk of the Genie+ service, which is unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads. So don’t forget to strike a pose and capture some magical memories.

    Have fun,
