Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane Booking Guides
See which attractions you should be booking first!
There’s no question that the new Genie and Genie+ service is much more confusing and technical than the old FastPass+ system at Walt Disney World. With a tip board, pinning, bookable attractions and individual purchase attractions, there’s a lot to learn. And if you’re new to the whole thing, it can be very overwhelming. Luckily for you we’ve spent countless hours using the Genie and Genie+ services and have figured out some great tips and hacks to share with you.
First, if you really are brand new to Genie we recommend you take a look at our Step by Step Genie Guide which gives you a great rundown of the entire service and how it works. Trust us, you’re going to want to know the basics before jumping into this.
Below you’ll find some very informative, step by step guides to help you book your Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane attractions for each of the parks at Disney World including EPCOT, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom. Scroll down even further for our Disneyland Resort guides for Disneyland Park and California Adventure Park.
We start with top priorities which are usually the most sought-after attractions that cannot be purchase via ILL (Individual Lightning Lane). You have to book them using Genie+. So those will be shown in Tier 1. These tend to book up the quickest.
Tier 2 are the next level down attractions, shows and experiences that can be booked via Genie+ but tend to not run out as quickly as Tier 1’s do.
Third is Tier 3. These ones that you shouldn’t need to worry about at all as they tend to hand around all day long.
Lastly you’re going to see your booking priorities for Genie+ and ILL. You’ll want to book them in the order shown. Keep in mind that we are pro-purchase ILL so if you’re not or it’s not part of your plan, just skip those and plan to wait in the standby lines for them.
