How to maximize using Disney Genie?
Do you know that EPCOT and Animal Kingdom are two Disney World theme parks where you can skip Genie.
These two parks don’t have a lot of rides where you need to queue up.
Animal Kingdom has some decent rides that don’t have those long queues except the popular Flight of Passage. Moreover, Lightning Lane passes work just fine for this option. The same goes with Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind of EPCOT.
Even though you have your pass, virtual queues can still be long. Hence getting Lightning Lane passes for these rides could be helpful.
If you do have a Genie+, Magic Kingdom is the place that could get you the utmost benefit. Hollywood Studios follow the list. However even if you do get the Genie+, it is important to know how to use it efficiently.
1. Heading early to the park
Now, if you wish to manage without purchasing Genie+, try getting the Early Theme Park Pass, which is available in all the hotels of Disney World.
Heading early to the park will help you get on the rides without standing in queues. Also, the early theme park pass will let you in for all the rides.
You can explore any of the other rides if one doesn’t work out. This is one of the most useful hacks to ditch long lines.
2. Wait for the right time
Before getting a Genie+, you need to play a risky trade. You need to wait for the right deal. Just keep an eye on how busy the park gets before buying Genie+.
Just make sure you monitor the app to decide on buying Genie+. However, remember that even if you get it at a lower price, you might miss popular attractions as a latecomer.
For example, Slinky Dog Dash. Since it’s one of the most popular rides you might find no space for grabbing a Lightning Lane.
3. Make a plan
Having a proper plan before you start your trip is a great idea that can help you avoid buying Genie+.
Make a plan of your Disney World routes so you can reach the rides quickly without searching for them.
My Disney Experience app can help you with that, and you can be on top, benefiting from the short waiting times. Hop on to the rides just when it opens and enjoy the shorter wait times.
Just try using these tips and tricks so you can use Genie+ when it’s required and not unnecessarily. Make a list of everything required and enjoy your trip to Disney World. Also, a pro tip, try the Genie, which comes free to manage and organize your trip. It’s an amazing tool for planning your Disney World trip.
