    Using Genie+ how far in advanc can you reserve certain rides at Disney parks? I recall making two per day with fast pass years ago? Is this the case now?

    Hi Elaine!

    Like our pal, the Genie told Aladdin in the Cave of Wonders, you ain't never had a friend like me! While I can't grant wishes, I'm happy to answer all of your Walt Disney World planning questions. Hop aboard my magic carpet, and let me show you the world!

    Disney Genie+ Service allows you to experience select attractions via Lightning Lane, which, like FastPass+, offers a shorter wait than the standby queue. You can summon Disney Genie+ Service as early as midnight each day of your vacation and make your first Lightning Lane selection beginning at 7 AM. I usually purchase Disney Genie+ Service when I wake up, a few minutes before 7.

    With Disney Genie+ Service, you can reserve one Lightning Lane Entry at 7 AM and make another reservation after redeeming your first or two hours after park opening, whichever comes first. You can continue to make Lightning Lane reservations (pending availability) every two hours or after scanning into your previous reservation throughout the day. If you aren't sure when to make your next selection, check the top of your Tip Board on the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    I hope this is helpful, Elaine! While many attractions are included in Disney Genie+ Service, you'll also find one or two in each theme park that are not. Currently, to bypass the standby line TRON Lightcycle/Run and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in Magic Kingdom Park, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Avatar Flight of Passage in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you'll need to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane Entry. You can secure these as early as 7 AM if you're a Guest of a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection or at park opening if you're not. You may purchase up to 2 Individual Lightning Lane entries each day.

    Best wishes for a memorable vacation! If there's anything else we at planDisney can do to make it even more magical, don't hesitate to write back again.
