    Hello! We are visiting over New Years and wondered if we will be able to book genie plus lightening lanes until midnight on New Years eve? Thank you!

    Hiya, Leah! Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with such a great planning question!

    I can't imagine a better way to celebrate the end of a fantastic year and ring in an even better one than a magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. I know you must be getting so excited. Since you plan on maximizing your magic and minimizing your time spent in line by purchasing Disney Genie+, it sounds like your planning is off to a practically perfect start. Now, let's get this New Year's Eve planning party started!

    I spoke with a helpful Cast Member who informed me that the attractions' Lightning Lane entrances are typically available during regular theme park hours. Since Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios are open until midnight on New Year's Eve, you should be able to make late-night Genie+ Lightning Lane selections and purchase Individual Lightning Lanes when ringing in the new year. Just be aware that, as always, Lightning Lane selections are subject to availability and change.

    Since New Year's Eve is always a popular time to visit Walt Disney World Resort, be sure to start making your Lightning Lane selections right at 7:00 a.m. if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel. The Disney Genie+ Service on the My Disney Experience app will tell you exactly when you can make your next selection, but I recommend setting a reminder alert on your phone for those times. Time flies when you're having fun, and you don't want to miss the opportunity to maximize the magic. Three ... two ... one ... Happy New Year, Leah!

    I hope this helps, Leah, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable time on your vacation and in your new year. Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have.

    Stay merry and bright,
