    Travelling on 2nd of April 2023. Booked my 14 day tickets today. Genie plus pre booking is ending from 9th June hence why I booked my ticket today. I have tried to book genie plus in app for my trip it says dates not available for pre booking. Can you help

    Hi Amy! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question!

    It's never too early to start planning for a Walt Disney World Resort holiday! And with bookings available for 2023 for all Guests from the UK and Ireland, now is the best time to do so! With so many new attractions and returning experiences to the parks, you'll have a lot to keep you busy during your stay! EPCOT is currently under a major transformation and will hopefully be nearing its completion by the time of your visit. Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is opening up this weekend and is already a fan favorite among Guests who were able to ride it during the preview window. Space 220 Restaurant opened late last year and is an out-of-this-world dining experience (pun intended) that you should definitely try out! 

    Amy, there have been some recent changes to Disney Genie+ as it seems you are aware. Starting on June 8th, all Guests will need to purchase the service each day that they wish to use it. Since we are in the limbo stage before this occurs, I would recommend calling the Walt Disney World Resort and speaking to a Cast Member for clarification if you can still purchase for a future trip before this date. I can tell you that Disney Genie+ is not being advertised as an add-on during the booking process for 2023 vacation packages.

    If you are unable to add it on, here are some steps to purchase the service during your trip. Before your visit, download the My Disney Experience App to your mobile device and log in to your account. Then each park day you want to add on Genie+, you'll need to purchase it using the app. The process is very simple and can be completed in a matter of moments. Once you are in the app, tap on the three horizontal bars on the bottom right of your screen, followed by "My Genie Day". Once here, select the purple bar that reads "Get Disney Genie+ For Today". Follow the prompts from here to complete the purchase. You can add this at any time of the day, starting at midnight the day of. This method may be more beneficial to you financially since you will not need to pay for all 14 days. You'll only need to pay for it on the days you wish to use it.

    In addition to using Disney Genie+ during your stay, you'll also have the option to purchase Individual Lightning Lane entrances to select attractions. Typically, these are reserved for the most popular rides at each of the four theme parks and are not included in the purchase of Disney Genie+. If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Hotel during this trip, you can select your first Individual Lightning Lane starting at 7 AM each day. Log on to your My Disney Experience App and tap on "Tip Board". Select the park you are visiting and scroll down until you find the attraction you are looking for. Tap on that attraction and continue to secure your reservation. If you are staying offsite, you'll need to wait until the official park opening time to make your first selection.  

    Amy, I hope you have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort next year! Be sure to follow along with the Disney Parks Blog for any news and announcements leading up to your stay!

    Happy planning!
