    For a trip on oct 14-15th, will lightening lanes be available? Or Disney Genie? If they are not available, how do you suggest we go about planning the attractions?

    Hi Manish! Welcome to planDisney!

    You are only FIVE days away from your vacation at the Most Magical Place on Earth! That is so exciting! I'm sure you can't wait to experience all that the Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary celebration has to offer. You will have the BEST time!

    It was recently announced on the Disney Parks Blog that Disney Genie Service, including Disney Genie+ and Lightning Lane entrances, will begin operating on October 19, 2021. You will miss it by just a few days! However, I have visited a few times this year without this service and have some suggestions for getting the most out of your Disney day.

    First, my family always arrives at the theme parks early. We get there before the theme parks open so we are among the first people in. We head straight to the most popular attractions first. For example, in Magic Kingdom Park, we go to Seven Dwarfs Mine Train right away. Since we typically get the first attraction done quickly, we'll head to another popular attraction (or three!) next to get in as many as we can before the theme park starts to fill up.

    After we have those first attractions done, we like to grab a snack, late breakfast, or early lunch. Then, I use the wait times on the My Disney Experience mobile app as our guide to know where we should head next. Wait times vary throughout the day, so we often try to wait for the longer wait times to get lower before heading to that attraction. Towards the end of the park hours, wait times tend to drop significantly which signals another great time to get in the more popular rides.

    I hope this helps, Manish! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
