Disney Genie+ is a paid service that allows you to skip the standby line and use the Lightning Lane entrance at select attractions.
Guests can book their first Genie+ ride selections starting at 7 AM on the day of their visit. This applies to both those who stay at a Disney Resort Hotel or stay off-property.
There’s are also a few pay-per-ride Lightning Lane passes that allow guests expediated entry to Disney’s highest demand attractions (rides not included as part of the Disney Genie+ service). Guests can make their first Individual Lightning Lane Selection at 7 AM if they are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, the Swan and Dolphin Resorts, or Shades of Green. Those staying off property can make their first reservation once the park opens.
The advantage goes to guests staying at Disney World resorts because they have the earliest opportunity to secure the most popular attractions (Individual Lightning Lane reservations starting at 7 AM).
Don’t waste your time by booking less popular attractions. Instead, focus on the most popular Disney attractions that appeal to you (the ones that will inevitably have the longest lines).
Also of note: if you have a medical condition which affects your ability to wait in line, you might want to use Disney’s Disability Access Service in addition to Genie+. DAS offers scheduled return times, allowing you to wait in a more comfortable area.
