    I am staying at Wyndham Bonnet Creek for my Disney World trip this August. When am I able to purchase Genie+? Is it at 7AM or am I only able to purchase once I've been scanned into the park?

    Hi there, Jessica - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question for our team of panelists. We love helping Guests just like you plan your own magical Walt Disney World Resort vacations!

    You've picked a great time to visit. The Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration brings exciting new attractions, entertainment, food, and so much more for you to enjoy - get ready to make some truly magical memories!

    The Disney Genie+ Service can be purchased via the My Disney Experience Mobile App on the day you would like to use it, and that starts at Midnight! So, if you've had a long day and are up past Midnight, you can actually purchase Genie+ for the next day before you go to bed! You can find links to purchase on either the home screen, your Tip Board, or the My Day tab within the app.

    My recommendation is that you complete the purchase before 7 a.m. to make sure you have enough time to make your first Genie+ Lightning Lane selection at 7 a.m. This timing currently applies to all Guests, regardless of where you may be staying.

    One difference, unrelated to Genie+, is that registered Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels (and select other hotels) are able to purchase Individual Lightning Lane selections at 7 a.m. for those select attractions offering them, while all other Guests can make those purchases once the Theme Park the attraction is located at opens for the day. There are also some other exciting benefits to staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, so you may want to consider doing so on a future trip!

    I hope this information is helpful as you continue planning for your upcoming trip - please let me know if we can help by answering any additional questions that might pop up!
