    I am in the UK and I have just booked our Disney World holiday for July this year. When looking at the Genie+ it says I cannot purchase this due to not being in the USA, does this mean I cant purchase it when we get there?

    Hiya Kelly! Greetings from this side of the Atlantic!

    How exciting! Your Walt Disney World holiday is now on the books and you can start planning for this magical stay!

    Purchasing Disney Genie+ for your park days is the best way to maximize your time. You'll be able to bypass the standby queue on many attractions, which will free you up to experience more each day. Disney Genie+ must be bought each day you plan to use it and cannot be purchased in advance for any Guests visiting the parks. Once you arrive stateside, download the My Disney Experience App to your mobile device. Log in to your My Disney Experience account on the app to use it during your stay. Each day starting at midnight, you can open up the app and tap on the purple bar that reads "Disney Genie+ Service." Select "Purchase" and follow the prompts for payment. You'll need to repeat this process each park day you plan to utilize it.

    You'll be able to make your first Disney Genie+ selection each day starting at 7 AM. Make sure to purchase the service before this time in order to get the most out of it. There is also a possibility that it can sell out each day, so you'll want to purchase as early as you can.

    Currently, there is one attraction at each park that is designated as an Individual Lightning Lane attraction. These rides are not part of Disney Genie+ and must be purchased individually to make a Lightning Lane selection. Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance are both classified with this designation.

    Kelly, I hope you have a magical holiday this summer! Stop back and see us again at planDisney

    Happy planning!
