    I have validated vintage tickets that can only be redeemed at the gate of Magic Kingdom. I was wondering if I would be able to purchase Genie Plus and make bookings at 7 AM as well as join the virtual queue before I exchange the vintage tickets at the gate

    Hi there, Moeen, and welcome to planDisney!

    How cool is that your vintage theme park tickets are paying off on your upcoming vacation?! Magic Kingdom Park has now welcomed Guests for more than 50 years--and the magical moments just keep coming. Let's get into how you can use your theme park tickets. 
    You need to link your tickets to your My Disney Experience account in order to make theme park reservations (if required), purchase Disney Genie+ Service and Individual Lightning Lanes, and enter a Virtual Queue for an attraction like TRON Lightcycle / Run. You may have already been through this process, but be sure to take a photo of the front and back of the older theme park ticket and email it to Include your name, when you purchased it, and other helpful information to help the Cast Member determine the ticket's value. You can expect a response in up to 14 days, which could you past your planned vacation time. After this, you should be able to link your confirmation to your My Disney Experience account.

    If you absolutely must redeem your older theme park tickets in-person, I suggest that you visit the theme park or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs a day or so before your visit if you can, so that you can take advantage of purchasing your Lightning Lane access as early as possible. Disney Genie+ sold out at Magic Kingdom Park recently; it can happen!

    If you must wait until the day of your visit, I recommend that you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park as early as possible to make the exchange. The Transportation and Ticket Center opens 30 minutes or so before the theme park welcomes Early Theme Park Entry hotel Guests. As soon as you're done, purchase Disney Genie+ in the My Disney Experience App. You'll probably miss the earlier Virtual Queue, but you can try again at 1 p.m. The good news? At-night rides on TRON Lightcycle / Run are super thrilling!

    Moeen, if you have any other questions about your Most Magical vacation, give us a holler here at planDisney. We would love to share some of our tips and tricks with you. 

    Magic always,
