Other Attractions/Genie+:

In every Disney theme park there are shows, character meet and greets and other interactive entertainment. There is never a shortage of things to do. You might be thinking, how can I ride my must do rides in one day? The Genie+ is a great addition to your park days. Starting at 7am the day of (when you stay at a Disney Resort hotel) you can select your first attraction to use the Lightning Lane for. You can also purchase one or two Individual Attraction Selections for the day at 7am. Other ways to beat the lines are to take advantage of Disney Early Park Entry when staying at a Disney Resort hotel and/or Extended Evening Hours when staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort or Disney Deluxe Villa Resort. Don’t let the weather get you down! Pack rain gear and enjoy
