You will need to purchase Genie+ from within the My Disney Experience app each day you would like to use the service. You can purchase it at any time of day, however, you are able to start using it at as early as 7am. It’s advised that you purchase it before 7am, as early as 12am, so you can start booking Lightning Lanes as soon as the 7am booking window begins - in order to maximize it’s use.. Let’s review how to Purchase Disney Genie+ in the Disney app.
Step 1: Log into My Disney Experience
Log in to your My Disney Experience Account from within the mobile app. If your app isn’t up to date, you may have to do an update to your app in order to access the Genie features.
