    If you're staying on site but decide to go to a park on check in day and havent checked into your hotel yet, can you still book ILL and Genie+ at 7 am or is that only after you've checked into your resort?

    Hi Elizabeth! Welcome to planDisney!

    The magic of Disney never fails to impress me! Between the exquisite theming of the Disney Resorts, the incredible character meals and experiences, and the fantastic fireworks shows like Disney Enchantment in the evenings, you know you're going to wake up and fall asleep feeling like you've been sprinkled with pixie dust. 

    Even if you're waking up in a place that has a little less pixie dust you'll still have the benefits of being an on-site Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection hotel as long as you are checking in that same day.  This means that you and your party WILL be able to use Disney Genie+ Service to book your first Lightning Lane and Individual Lightning Lane choices even before you check in to your resort that day! Remember to set an alarm for a little before 7 a.m. so that you have your My Disney Experience mobile app and Disney Genie+ open and ready to get fast access to some of your favorite rides and attractions! 

    The benefits of staying on-site don't end at your checkout either! Did you know if you're staying in a Disney Deluxe Resort or Deluxe Villa and there are Extended Evening Theme Park Hours the day you check out you're still eligible to attend?  That's right! Just like Cinderella, your magical benefits stick with you all the way until midnight!

    Come back and see us again as you continue planning your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

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
