    Hiya Anita! Welcome to planDisney!

    You are less than two weeks away until you arrive for your magical Walt Disney World vacation! I'm excited you have decided to stay in a Disney Resorts Hotel during your visit! There are countless benefits to doing so, including Early Theme Park Entry to the parks each day. The 30-minute head start is great to fit in additional attractions with lower wait times.

    I love the day you have planned utilizing your park hopper tickets. Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is the perfect park to start your day since it opens before any of the others. You're truly able to maximize your day to its fullest potential. With the purchase of Disney Genie+, you'll be able to ride even more attractions since you can utilize the Lightning Lane entrances for all of your selections.

    If you plan to use Genie+ for Disney's Hollywood Studios, you'll need to be careful about the times you book your arrival windows for. Disney Genie+ does not allow you to select your time slot, it will only let you choose the next available arrival window. You can make your first selection at 7 AM, but make sure that the arrival window you select is for after 2 PM (due to park hopping rules) or you will not be able to make it there in time.  

    Since Animal Kingdom's official park opening time on this day is 8 AM, you can make your second Genie+ selection two hours after this time. Make sure to set an alarm on your mobile device to alert you at 10 AM to log on and make another selection. Again, be careful of the arrival window, since it will need to be after 2 PM to ride the attraction. You'll then be able to make a third selection at noon followed by another at 2 PM. This is a great plan if you are able to find arrival windows for later in the day. It will depend on how busy Hollywood Studios is on this day and the number of Guests using Disney Genie+. 

    Anita, I hope you have an amazing Disney adventure next month! You seem to have a great plan in place to have a magical day!

    See ya real soon!
