    My uncle has a trip planned next year he wants to no can you no purchase the Genie+ but still have a magical time in standby were coming from UK he’s staying 2 weeks

    Welcome Home, Amy!

    Thank you for visiting planDisney with your wondEARful question about Disney Genie!

    Amy, you must be thrilled about your uncle's upcoming vacation! Two weeks in the Most Magical Place on Earth sounds delightful. You are a wonderful niece for helping him plan his vacation. 

    I am happy to report that your uncle does not need to purchase Disney Genie+ service or individual attraction selections to have a magical time. In fact, Disney Genie service is complimentary and was created to help Guests have the “practically perfect” Walt Disney World Resort day!

    Walt Disney World Resort attractions will continue to have a traditional standby queue or a virtual queue at certain attractions. If he does not purchase Disney Genie+, he will not have access to the Lightning Lane entrances, but he can still access the standby and virtual queues!

    Additionally, using Disney Genie is complimentary and easily accessible via the My Disney Experience mobile app. Even if he doesn’t purchase Disney Genie+, he can use Disney Genie to display current and forecasted future wait times -- helping him predict when he might experience quicker entry to attractions! By using Disney Genie he can maximize his theme park time and have even more fun. I call that a win-win, Amy!

    I hope I have helped answer your question. If you have any additional questions, we are always hEAR to help you!
