    Hi, I am wondering what is the best way to use the Genie + option. Do you check it the morning of and make an itinerary? Can you reserve certain lightening lanes ahead of time with Genie Plus?

    Hi Jennifer! Welcome to planDisney.

    In just a matter of a few days, you are arriving at Walt Disney World Resort during The World's Most Magical Celebration. I am so excited for you to experience all of the extra magic like specialty-themed treats found in the 50th Anniversary Celebration Sips and Bites Guide. You can find Walt's Chili Cheese Dog from Casey's Corner at Magic Kingdom Park.

    I feel the easiest way to add Disney Genie+ Service is after midnight on the day of your park visit. This enables you to decide if adding the service to your upcoming day is a good use of your time management and dollars spent. Lightning Lane selections will be available for all guests beginning at 7:00 AM Eastern Time. To add Disney Genie+ Service open the My Disney Experience Mobile App and click on the three horizontal lines in the bottom right-hand corner and select "My Genie Day." Look down for "Get Disney Genie+ for Today" this will be followed by "Get Disney Genie+ Service." You will select which guests you would like to purchase the service for and follow the prompts to submit payment. I suggest you have your app open and ready at 7:00 AM to make your first choice. If that choice is further than two hours out, when you enter the theme park you will be allowed to make a second selection.

    Under the Lightning Lane link, you can click on each theme park for a listing of available attractions with your purchase. In addition, Individual Lightning Lanes can be purchased a la carte for those most coveted attractions. If you are a Disney Resorts Collection guest, Guest of Shades of Green®, or Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel guest, you can make your first Individual Lightning Lane selection at 7:00 AM. All other guests will have those available at the park opening.

    No matter which park you visit, stay until the sun goes down and Disney icons come to shimmering EARidescent life during Beacons of Magic. I had the pleasure of watching the Tree of Life at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park last week!

    Keeping it Magical,
