    Upcoming trip to DL. Bought Genie+ do not want to spend more. If I try to rope drop RoR will it be a reasonable wait? Also, can I plan my day w Genie like a week before? Thank you very much!

    Welcome back to planDisney, Jill!

    The Disney Genie service is a game changer for your Disney Parks experience. You might say it’s “A Whole New World!” Before your arrival, you may tell Genie your wishes using the Disneyland mobile app. Go to the ☰ feature menu and open “My Genie Day.” Tap the “Get Started Now” button to tell Genie your preferences for attractions, characters, and dining. At 7:00 am on the day of your visit, Genie will generate a recommended itinerary just for you. You can make adjustments to your itinerary throughout the day. Genie will continuously evaluate your inputs and adjust plans accordingly.

    Disney Genie+ service will be activated each day of your visit beginning the moment you use your theme park ticket to enter a theme park. You may then begin to book your first Lightning Lane return time, even if you enter the park before official park hours begin. Throughout the day, you may continue to book new Lightning Lane return times after you redeem your current return time. Or if your current return time is more than two hours after you booked it, you may book a return time for another attraction at that two-hour mark. That way, you may sometimes have more than one Lightning Lane return time reserved at a time.

    Tony’s Tip: As you have guessed, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is a particularly popular attraction. Many Guests choose to experience the attraction at the opening of Disneyland Park. If you choose to do so as well, be sure to follow Cast Member instructions to ensure a safe and direct route to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and the attraction queue. If you arrive at the park entrance very early (I recommend about an hour before park opening) you have a good chance of being among the first to experience the attraction for the day. If you happen to find yourselves further back in the pack, you might consider enjoying other attractions in the park while their wait times are at their lowest. Then, keep an eye on the wait times in the Disneyland app throughout the day to observe when the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance wait time is lower. If you notice a time when the attraction is temporarily unavailable, you may find that the wait time is quite low right after the attraction reopens.

    May the Force be with you, Jill!
