    Hello, I am trying to book Disney park tickets for August. Am I able to book Genie+ in advance or does this have to be done on the day in resort? Thanks

    Hiya Nicola! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm excited to see your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is less than two months away! I promise it will be here before you know it! How lucky to visit during the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration! The EARidescent magical touches sprinkled all around Walt Disney World!

    Nicola, you’re so smart to want to use Disney Genie+ during your upcoming vacation. By purchasing Disney Genie+ Service, you'll be able to secure the next available arrival window at more than 40 attractions and experiences throughout all four theme parks, leaving you with less time in line! How fabulous is that?

    As of June 8th, 2022, Guests are no longer able to add Disney Genie+ to their tickets ahead of time as a pre-arrival add-on. Instead, Disney Genie+ can now be purchased starting at midnight on each individual day of your visit. Now, purchasing Genie+ is as easy as can be, thanks to your My Disney Experience app. All you need to do is open your app and click on the purple “Purchase for Today” button on the home screen. From there, you can select the members of your party, check out, and you’re all set!

    Once you have your Disney Genie+ purchase, Lightning Lane selections can be made on the morning of your visit, starting at 7 a.m. So, don’t forget to set an alarm so you’re ready to go. I’ll be honest; I’m NOT a morning person, and on my recent visit, I overslept and almost missed the 7 a.m. mark. So, I’ll definitely be making sure I have MULTIPLE alarms set in the future! While you can only secure one Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane selection at a time, you can make another selection two hours after park opening OR once you have redeemed your first selection. An example of some attractions with Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane are Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, Splash Mountain and one of my personal favorites, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

    I am sure you will have an absolutely fantastic time with your family on your upcoming vacation. There is so much that is new, exciting and maybe even a little unfamiliar at Walt Disney World, so please feel free to revisit us if you have any other questions!

    Until next time,
