I don't specialize in Disney Destinations because I took classes or studied books. It’s because I truly have a passion for Disney. I take my own personal vacations to Disney Destinations and have been to them 50+ times.

Disney Genie+

Disney has introduced a new system within the Disneyland app to help plan your day in a way that is completely catered to you and your family.  This system is called Disney Genie.  Click on "Get Started" and Disney Genie will ask you some simple questions about what you hope to accomplish for each park and then make suggestions based on those answers.  This can be done in advance of your vacation or during your trip. Upon your arrival at the Disney Parks, Disney Genie will create a suggested itinerary for you based on current attraction wait times and show times. Disney Genie is a complimentary service. With this option, you will visit each attraction by waiting in the "Standby Line". 


You can take Disney Genie to the next level by purchasing Disney Genie+. Disney Genie+ allows you to bypass the "Standby Line" queue by using the "Lightning Lane". You'll be able to make better use of your day by spending less time standing in lines for the attractions. Disney Genie+ may be included in your vacation package so please refer to your Travel Leaders invoice. There is no limit on how many times you can use the Lightning Lanes for the various attractions. But you can only book one attraction at a time and only once per attraction.  This service will NOT sell out.   


Disney Genie+ Lightning Lanes are available for the following attractions…

 The most popular attractions in the Disney Parks can also be booked as an "Individual Lightning Lane" You can purchase individual selections for up to 2 different attractions per day upon entering a theme park. You are essentially paying a little more money to join the Lightning Lane for these top attractions. Pricing for individual purchase of Lightning Lane entrance arrival windows will vary by date and attraction, and purchase is subject to limited availability. You are only allotted a maximum of 2 attractions from this category per person, per day and this service can sell out. You do not have to have Disney Genie+ in order to book an Individual Lightning Lane but these two options can be combined to make the most of your time.  


Individual Lightning Lanes are available for the following attractions...



  • Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway

  • Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

  • Radiator Springs Racers 


Of course, the Standby Line does exist for all attractions and shows on property, so if you don't feeling like paying extra, you always have the option to wait in that line.
