    I've signed up for Disney Genie Plus for our upcoming family vacation to Disney World. I'm looking for a video or DETAILED instructions how schedule a day before we show up so I know exactly what to do before 7:00am the first day.

    Hi there Philip, and welcome back to planDisney! 

    Now that the Genie is out of the bottle, the My Disney Experience Mobile App is more useful than ever before. You'll have phenomenal, cosmic power right in the palm of your hand. Let me share this whole new world with you!

    Since you've already purchased Disney Genie+ Service, I recommend practicing the steps you'll take each morning of your vacation to get the hang of it and maximize its features. While there is no official video just yet, a quick YouTube search may help you find what you're looking for. In the meantime, I'll outline the process of reserving Lightning Lane experiences on the day of your visit.

    Beginning at 7 AM, you can make your first Genie+ Lightning Lane selection and book any Individual Lightning Lane experiences you wish to purchase. If you're trying for one of the most popular attractions, like Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, make sure to make that purchase first. Right at 7 AM, open the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Click on the three small horizontal lines in the bottom right corner of the home screen. Next, select "My Genie Day," and then "Tip Board." Here, you will see a list of attractions available to book with Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane. To make your first selection, click "Book Experience." Follow the prompts to confirm party members and return time, and you'll be on your way!

    In addition to Genie+, if you'd like to have the complimentary Disney Genie help plan your day, you can share your preferences, priority attractions, and dining plans ahead of time, as soon as you make theme park reservations. On the day of your visit, Disney Genie will offer advice and tips in real-time based on your wishes so you can have your best Disney day. On the home screen of the My Disney Experience Mobile App, look for a lamp icon and a heading that says "An Incredible Disney Park Day Awaits." Click on the button that says "Get Started." Choose a day on the calendar that you'll be in the theme parks, select members of your party who will be joining you on your adventure, and check off experiences you'd like to enjoy during your visit. 

    I hope this is helpful, Philip, and that the Genie grants all of your wishes on your upcoming vacation. Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney, and we can't wait to see ya real soon.

    Happy holidays!
