    If you’re a DVC member staying at a DVC resort at WDW, are you allowed to purchase the beanie plus service before Disney guests who are not DVC?

    Welcome to planDisney, Liliana, and Welcome Home!

    We just returned from a Disney Vacation Club Resort stay at Walt Disney World Resort, and it was as magical as ever. It always makes such a difference to have home-like amenities in our Resorts while also still being immersed in the theming and atmosphere of Disney Resorts. Let's take a magic carpet ride to discuss the tool with phenomenal cosmic powers, Genie+!  

    Currently, DVC Members are not able to purchase Genie+ before other Disney Guests. At this time, Genie+ is available for purchase on the day of your visit to the theme parks. So technically, you can buy Genie+ at midnight each day of your visit. However, I have not found it necessary to stay up late to add Genie+ for the day. My typical routine during our stay involves setting my alarm for a bit before 7:00 AM, buying Genie+ for the family, starting my coffee, and then making my first Genie+ selections for the day at 7:00 AM. I have also chosen to sleep in on some trips and made our purchase later in the day. It depends on your travel style. Be sure to review some of the recent changes with Genie+, particularly the ability to select the service for individual parks versus the multiple parks option. 

    Thank you for visiting planDisney. We are here for all your Disney Vacation Club adventures. 

    Enjoy making magical memories!
