    I am a UK resident looking to book for Summer 2023. I know adding genie+ after 8th June is not possible but I've been trying to book with genie+ and it's not showing as an option. If I book before 8th June will I definitely be able to add genie+

    Hi Sophie! Welcome to planDisney!

    It's never too early to start planning for a Walt Disney World Resort holiday! You have a lot to look forward to when you arrive in July 2023. TRON Lightcycle Power Run is getting closer and closer each day to its grand opening at the Magic Kingdom Park. I'm hoping by the time you arrive onsite that you will be able to experience this thrilling coaster. EPCOT has undergone some major changes to the layout of the park and should be nearing completion by this time next year. With the addition of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, EPCOT is continuing to add to the park experience. 

    As you are aware, Walt Disney World is changing the way you purchase Disney Genie+ for your park days. Starting on June 8th, all Guests will need to purchase Genie+ each day that they wish to use it. Since we are in the window before this occurs, the big question is can you still add on this service before that date. The website is currently not allowing you to add Genie+ to your park tickets for any dates. If you are booking your package online, you will not see this as an option. I would recommend calling the Walt Disney World Resort and speaking to a Cast Member for clarification if you can still purchase for a future trip before this date. I can tell you that Disney Genie+ is not being advertised as an add-on during the booking process for 2023 vacation packages.

    If you are unable to add it on, here are some steps to purchase the service during your trip. Before your visit, download the My Disney Experience App to your mobile device and log in to your account. Then each park day you want to add on Genie+, you'll need to purchase it using the app. The process is very simple and can be completed in a matter of moments. Once you are in the app, tap on the three horizontal bars on the bottom right of your screen, followed by "My Genie Day". Once here, select the purple bar that reads "Get Disney Genie+ For Today". Follow the prompts from here to complete the purchase. You can add this at any time of the day, starting at midnight the day of.

    Sophie, with over a year of planning ahead of you, I have a feeling you are going to plan an epic summer holiday. If you have any additional questions, stop back to see me at planDisney!

    Happy planning!
