    We are visiting for Thanksgiving this year, and want to utilize genie+ in the park. After looking into it, I realized that you can now only purchase on the day you plan to visit. What time can we purchase? Does genie+ often sell out quickly on busy days?

    Hi Tracylnn! Welcome back to planDisney!

    Start that countdown because your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth will be here before you know it! The leaves are already starting to drop here in Massachusetts and Walt Disney World Resort has festive fall touches everywhere you look! I love the jack-o-lanterns that beckon Guests to start their stroll down Main Street U.S.A.!

    Since so many Guests love to visit Walt Disney World for the Thanksgiving holiday I think it's a great idea to plan on using Disney Genie+ Service to help you and your family maximize your time within the four Theme Parks.  While you still may be waiting for a return time to ride your favorite attractions and shows, you can spend your "wait" time exploring other incredible options around the Park. Instead of standing in line, you and your party can catch a parade, meet some of your favorite character pals, or grab some ultimate Disney treats like a churro and a DOLE Whip

    Right now, all Guests wishing to purchase Disney Genie+ can do so anytime after midnight on the day on which they plan to use it.  While you're welcome to hop on to your My Disney Experience mobile app and purchase right when the clock strikes midnight, many Guests also wait until morning and purchase right before they start selecting their first Lightning Lane attractions at 7 a.m.

    While I've never heard of Genie+ selling out availability may be limited and some days Lightning Lane attraction return times do get filled up quicker than others. My best suggestion would be to purchase as soon as possible and make your absolute "must-do" attractions your very first selections of the day.  Remember, even if all the Lightning Lane slots are full, you and your party always have the option to wait in the standby line!

    I hope you have a magical vacation, Tracylnn!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
