    Can someone provide specific details on how the genie pass works and if you can use lightening passes with it? Thx.

    Hiya Shannon - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks for swinging by with a question for us. We love to help Guests plan magical vacations to Walt Disney World Resort!

    The new Disney Genie+ Service can be purchased on each day of your visit starting at Midnight. If you're up that late, great, take care of it before bed. Otherwise, I recommend completing your purchase before 7 a.m. to have the best selection of attractions to choose from. Each morning starting at 7 a.m. you will be able to use the My Disney Experience Mobile App to select an available return time window for an attraction at the first Theme Park you are visiting that day. Once your return time rolls around, you'll use the Lightning Lane entrance to experience the attraction with minimal wait!

    As soon as you use one Genie+ Lightning Lane selection, or at least two hours have passed since you made your previous selection, you can make another return time selection! If you made your first Genie+ Lightning Lane selection before the Theme Park opens, that two-hour timer starts when the park officially opens, not from when you made the first selection earlier in the morning. This can be a little tricky to keep track of, but luckily a recent app update now shows you exactly when you're eligible to make your next Genie+ Lightning Lane selection! Guests should expect to experience two to three attractions per day through Genie+ Lightning Lane selections, more if the parks are less busy.

    There are a few new and popular attractions that are not included in Genie+ - for example, the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind rollercoaster at EPCOT. These attractions may have standard standby queues or offer a Virtual Queue, but you are also able to purchase separate, Individual Lightning Lane access to these attractions. Also available through the My Disney Experience Mobile App, registered Guests of Disney Resorts (and select other hotels) can purchase Individual Lightning Lane access starting at 7 a.m. and all other Guests can make these purchases once the specific Theme Park opens.

    Shannon, I hope this answers your question, but if you're looking for additional information, you should definitely check out some short new videos that explain everything that the Disney Genie service and Lightning Lanes have to offer! Please let us know if there are any other questions we can help answer!
