    Hello. I am trying to purchase Disney genie + for our park reservation on December 31. I can’t find an option to add this to my tickets and I wanted to try to get these in advance. Can you help me. Thank you.

    Hey there, Shalis! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    I bet you and your party simply cannot wait to spend the day at The Most Magical Place on Earth! Celebrating New Year's Eve is always fun and exciting, but kicking it off at Walt Disney World Resort is surely the best way to usher in a fantastic new year!  While we know that Walt Disney World often hosts memorable ways to celebrate, I haven't heard the news about any special fireworks, events, or parties just yet.  I would suggest keeping your eye on the Disney Parks Blog as the evening comes closer.  This will be the first place you'll hEAR about the excitement that's brewing to help you ring in 2023!  

    Even though you're ready and raring to go with your Theme Park Tickets and Theme Park Reservations, you'll have to wait a bit longer to log on to Disney Genie+ Service and start making those Lightning Lane selections! Right now, all Guests who wish to purchase Disney Genie+ are able to do so anytime after midnight on the day they have a valid Theme Park Ticket.  While you don't need to purchase at midnight, if you're up, you're welcome to! Personally, I choose to wake up just about 15 minutes before 7 a.m. and make my Genie+ purchase right through the My Disney Experience mobile app. 

    All Guests who have purchased Genie+ are able to make their first Lightning Lane selections at 7 a.m. sharp, so you'll want to be set up and ready at least a few minutes before that.  If you're interested in purchasing Individual Lightning Lanes for a couple of the most popular attractions within each Park, Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels, the Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin, Swan Reserve and Shades of Green are able to make their selections at 7 a.m. All other Guests can purchase their Individual Lightning Lane selections starting at the official Park opening time. 

    I hope you and your party have a magical time ringing in the new yEAR!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
