    We are spending 1 day at Epcot w/ genie+. Want to make sure I understand the system. At 7:00, to book Ratatouille, do I log on and just make a rez, or do I first buy a lightning lane and then make the rez? Or are two lightning lanes free with G+?

    Hello Jill, and welcome back to planDisney!

    Your magical vacation begins in less than a week it’s time for the single-digit dance! It looks like you are putting the finishing touches on your fabulous trip.

    Guests visiting Disney Theme Parks have 2 new options for skipping the standby lines. The purchase of Disney Genie+ allows Guests to use the Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions across all 4 theme parks. You can make your first reservation at 7:00 A.M. and continue to make additional selections until park closing. When you redeem an experience, you will use the Lightning Lane entrance. This service is $15 per Guest per day and can be accessed in the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Individual Lightning Lane access is also available for purchase to access the most popular rides and attractions. In EPCOT, Frozen Ever After and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure offer the Individual Lightning Lane option. This service has variable pricing and availability, it is not included with Genie+. Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels can begin to make their Individual Lightning Lane selections at 7:00 A.M. All other Guests must wait until the official park opening to reserve Individual Lightning Lane selections in the My Disney Experience mobile app. You can purchase up to 2 Individual Lightning Lane experiences per day and Genie+ is not required. Before you begin to make your purchase, make sure everyone in your party has a valid admission ticket and park pass reservation linked to their My Disney Experience account. This will allow your selection to go smoothly. You can access the Individual Lightning Lane option through the Tip Board in Disney Genie. Select EPCOT as your park and scroll down to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure to see return times offered and to book your experience.

    If an experience is not available, you can always arrive before the scheduled park opening and head to that attraction first to minimize your wait time. Don’t forget to check out the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection as a part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration. Can you find all 50 golden statues? I am wishing you all the fun and magic for your trip.

    See ya real soon,
