It appears that Disney Genie+ has clarified some things regarding its Lightning Lane access, particularly how long Guests need to wait between claiming a Lightning Lane access for another ride.
Disney’s Genie+ series is a paid service that costs $15 (USD) per person per day and allows Guests access to the Lightning Lane entrances for “2 to 3 attractions or experiences” per day at the Walt Disney World Resort. While there was always a waiting period enforced after Guests chose their first Lightning Lane attraction, there was some lingering speculation over when they could select their next attraction. Did they have to use their first line-cutting pass, or let it expire, or not? Well, it appears that Disney World has provided some clarity on the matter.
According to Disney World’s website,
Disney Genie+ service Lightning Lane selections can only be made one at a time. You must redeem an existing Disney Genie+ service Lightning Lane selection or wait 2 hours—whichever comes first—before making another Lightning Lane entrance selection through Disney Genie+ service. Please note: the 2-hour wait to make another selection begins when the park opens, even if you made your first booking at 7:00 AM.
In other words, Guests can now select a late-morning Disney Genie Lightning Lane without having to worry about completely missing out on higher-demand attractions. Disney World also clarifies that Guests do NOT have to be in the Parks in order to make their Lightning Lane choices. So long as Guests are scheduled to visit the Parks on that day, they can purchase Disney Genie+ and start making Lightning Lane selections as early as 7:00 am.
This clarification also comes after Disney World made the decision to limit the number of Guests who can purchase Genie+ service per day and only allow Guests to make Lightning Lane selections on the day of their Park visit.
