    We are staying at the DoubleTree/Disney Springs. This hotel is an "onsite hotel" for early park entry and other onsite benefits. Does this include the Genie+ 7am reservation option? Will this hotel qualify us to make 7am bookings?

    Hi Susan,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! 

    Great to hear that you’re staying at one of the Disney Springs properties in just a few days, how exciting! 

    When it comes to Disney Genie+ Service, all guests, no matter their hotel, are able to book their first Lightning Lane at 7:00 a.m. on the day they have the Service. You’ll want to start thinking about your first attraction for the day so you can book right at 7:00 a.m.

    Now when it comes to Individual Lightning Lanes (rides like Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance), at this time only Disney Resorts Collection hotel guests and guests of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels and Shades of Green are able to book these at 7:00 a.m. All other guests not staying at these hotels will be able to book their Individual Lightning Lanes when the Theme Parks open. Keep in mind these Individual Lightning Lanes can be stacked on top of your Disney Genie+ Lightning Lanes, but they are a separate purchase.

    You’re so right, one cool thing about staying at the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Orlando is that you can participate in Early Theme Park Entry. This way you can get into the Theme Parks early to get a head start on any of the main attractions! 

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for the World’s Most Magical Celebration. If you have any other last minute planning or vacation questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
