    What time can I start making line reservations using Genie plus?

    Hi there Robb,
    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for your question! It's always great to get to answer a question from a fellow Arizonan.

    Disney Genie+ Service is such a helpful feature when visiting the Disneyland Resort - I'm a big fan of all the convenience it adds. In particular, using the Lightning Lanes feature is a great way to fit in more attractions during your visit.

    You'll be able to make your first Lightning Lane return time selection as soon as you scan your ticket to enter your first park for the day. In fact, my recommendation is to look at the current Lightning Lane return times while you're in line at the entry turnstiles so you can get an idea of what you'll want to select as soon as you scan your ticket. If the park hasn't opened yet then it won't show any times, but you can at least get an idea of which attractions offer Lightning Lanes to decide which one you want to select first after scanning your ticket.

    To select your Lightning Lane return time in the Disneyland mobile app after you have entered a park, make sure you're on the home tab and select "My Day" in the "Upcoming Plans" section. Next, tap the "Tip Board" tab near the top of the screen. You'll then be able to see a list of attractions, their current wait time, and Lightning Lane return time. You can select the return time for the attraction you want to book and it'll walk you through the process!

    Thanks again for your question, Robb. Have a fantastic trip to the Happiest Place on Earth.

    Have a Magical Day,
