    What time is the earliest that I can purchase Genie plus on each day?. Would like to have it paid for before 7am so I can book rides for that day using Genie.

    Hello there, Christopher!

    The Walt Disney World Resort is gourd-geous during the fall, especially with all of the fun festivities happening around the Resort. Don’t forget to snap a photo with the festive fall decor, or check out Minnie’s Seasonal Dining at Hollywood & Vine, which has a smashing good fall overlay. 

    Just like Disney’s Cinderella, you can purchase Disney Genie+ service as soon as the clock strikes midnight on the day of your visit. However, you need to wait until 7:00 a.m. to start selecting Lightning Lane entrances. To purchase Disney Genie+ Service on the My Disney Experience mobile app, select the three horizontal bars in the bottom right corner of the screen, followed by “My Disney Genie Day.” Next, select the “My Day” tab and tap “Get Disney Genie+ for Today.”

    If you purchase Disney Genie+ Service at midnight and wake up to make your first Lightning Lane selection at 7:00 a.m., this doesn’t leave too much time for sleeping. I usually purchase Disney Genie+ Service as soon as I wake up at 6:00 a.m. on each theme park day so that I give myself plenty of time to purchase Disney Genie+ Service and get ready for my day before it’s time to start making Lightning Lane selections. 

    Did you know that you can purchase Disney Genie+ service, and you can make Lightning Lane selections for your entire vacation party as long as they are linked to your “My Family & Friends List”? This makes planning with a group so convenient. Also, if you ever need to change your Lightning Lane selection reservation time or selection, you can easily modify your selections by going to “My Disney Genie Day” in the My Disney Experience mobile app and selecting the three dots next to the reservation to modify your plans. I hope these tips help you have a gourd time. 

    May the magic be with you!
