    Hello - we are visiting in October 2022 and I was wondering about pre-booking rides / lightning lane entrances, and character experiences. How far in advance can we do that and how?

    Greetings, Brittany and welcome to planDisney!

    Visiting Walt Disney World Resort in the Fall is a ‘Spook-tacular’ experience, the decorations are over-the-top, themed treats and souvenirs are delicious and unique! As a fellow Canadian Disney fan, this time of year gets my vote!

    I like your way of thinking in planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation package, Brittany, you’re an expert planner, and on top of all the new options, well done! The great news is that vacation packages are available right now for your intended date of travel. You will be able to include your theme park tickets and any added options including the Disney Genie+ service.

    By including the Disney Genie+ service all you have to do on your theme park day at 7:00 AM is be ready to enter your selections one at a time for attractions that offer a Lightning Lane entrance - I would grab a cup of coffee and start up the app at about 6:45 AM. Once you summon the Disney Genie, it will ask for your preferred attractions, I would recommend selecting those that offer the Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane entrance and the Disney Genie will feature what is available from your list of choices throughout the day in the “Tip Board” and “My Day.” You’ll even receive a notification when it’s time to ride, just be sure to turn on your notifications on your mobile device!

    Once your package is booked, link it to your My Disney Experience and make your Disney Park Pass - Theme Park Reservations right now, as availability is showing well into the new year and beyond  (subject to change) so don’t wait too long. Disney dining reservations begin at 60-days before your stay.

    Brittany, you can customize and purchase your MagicBands and they'll be waiting at the Front Desk of your Disney Resort hotel, and take a look at the Disney MagicMobile Service in the My Disney Experience app which will enable you to create a Disney MagicMobile pass - your theme park ticket in your mobile device digital wallet, how awesome is that!

    I’m running out of space, and have so much to share to help make your Walt Disney World Resort vacation the best it can be, I hope I can chat with you again soon, right here on planDisney.

    See ya real soon! - Jacqueline
