A Walt Disney World vacation schedule typically revolves around children. Whether you have toddlers, tweens, or teenagers, you try to make sure everyone has the best time. Genie+ selections make it easier to enjoy your favorite rides, making everyone happy! When we travel to Walt Disney World we always ask our children what rides they want to ride.
