    Trip is next week.Confused about virtual queue, genie+, lightning lane purchases. Is there a limit for each ride? Can you have a genie+ selection at the same time as a lightning lane purchase or virtual queue? Thanks so much!

    Hello Ellen!

    Wow, I can tell you are excited about your Walt Disney World that starts next week! I used the Disney Genie+ Service in the four theme parks on my June 2022 Walt Disney World vacation. The Disney Genie Service is available to all Guests of Walt Disney World, accessed within the My Disney Experience Mobile App or Website. 

    The Genie+ Service is an upgrade that can be purchased in the My Disney Experience App after midnight on the day Guests are going into a theme park, giving Guests access to Lightning Lane Options (the Lightning Lane Options have replaced FastPass in Walt Disney World). More than 40 Lightning Lane experiences in the four theme parks are included in the Disney Genie+ Service. Currently, the Disney Genie+ service is available for $15 plus tax (United States Dollars) per Guest per day (prices may be subject to change). If you have purchased the Disney Genie+ Service, then you can make your first Lightning Lane selection at 7:00 am on the day of your visit. Once you have redeemed your initial choice or the time arrival window has passed (typically 2 hours), you can use the My Disney Experience App to check your My Day Itinerary or Tip Board to see when you can make your next Lightning Lane selection. You can make Lightning Lane selections up to the regular park closing for that particular day.

    Guests are able to purchase up to two Individual Lightning Lanes per day (for select rides in each theme park, typically, there are one to two selections in each theme park, but you can only ride an Individual Lightning Lane attraction once per day). You select a return time for your Individual Lightning Lane from what is available, and you can simultaneously hold a regular Lightning Lane and an Individual Lightning Lane. Presently, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in Epcot is the only Virtual Queue in Walt Disney World. You can try to get a spot in the virtual queue at 7:00 am for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind (you will need a theme park reservation for Epcot for that day to be eligible for the 7:00 am virtual queue). There is also a 1:00 pm opening of the virtual queue each day. Keep in mind that Guests must be inside Epcot to be able to try to get into the virtual queue, which opens at 1:00 pm

    I hope your next Walt Disney World vacation grants you all your wishes!
