    we are staying at an official walt disney world hotel but not a resort. at what time may we begin making genie plus attractions at a theme park?

    Hi there, Mary Jane! Welcome to planDisney! 

    We're just about to turn the calendar to December, and that means it's very nearly time for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation to begin! Just think, in only a few more days, you'll be walking right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A. taking in all of the holiday finery!

    Adding Disney Genie+ to your vacation plans really puts the magic at your fingertips. You'll practically fly in on a Magic Carpet when you use Disney Genie+ to access the Lightning Lane entrances throughout the theme parks! And be sure to set your alarm for an early wake-up time, because you can start making Lightning Lane selections for attractions included in your Disney Genie+ purchase as early as 7 a.m. on the day of your visit, no matter where you're staying! For attractions that are only available as an individual Lightning Lane purchase, Guests who are staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, or Shades of Green may make selections beginning at 7 a.m., while all other Guests can purchase them at park opening.

    Mary Jane, I'm so glad you stopped by to see us here at planDisney! We just love helping other Guests plan their Disney days. I hope you have a truly magical vacation, and a joyous holiday season. Please come back and see us again real soon!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

    Kathy K.

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
