    We have tickets to Hollywood Studios on Thursday. Can we purchase genie+in advance?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Disney Genie+ is a service that you buy the day of any given park day visit. There is no pre-ordering available. It is something you can buy for only one day or for each park day of your visit, it is totally up to you. In the past I have told friends to purchase it around 7 am that morning, right before they would make their first attraction selection. However, you can actually purchase the service starting just after midnight on that date. You will still have to wait until 7 am to make that first ride selection.

    Technically the Disney Genie+ service can sell out. I have never encountered that issue, but it can happen. You are going to be there at a very busy time, so it is certainly a possibility. If getting the service is a must for you, and staying up late the night before works with your schedule, it might give you some confidence in knowing you secured the service.

    BONUS TIP #1
    Make sure you have your My Disney Experience App downloaded on your phone and set up well ahead of time. That is where you are going to purchase Disney Genie+, as well as select your attractions.

    BONUS TIP #2
    If you are looking for an indoor counter service dining venue at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo is my favorite overlooked venue. Visitors to Batuu seem enamored with Ronto Roasters, but I love the Felucian Kefta and Hummus Garden Spread, and the heavily themed indoor seating area.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
