Get ready to embark on a journey of shorter lines and more ride time, all while having a blast in the enchanting world of Disney! Let’s dive into my Disney Genie+ strategies at Magic Kingdom!


Mastering Genie+: Your Key to Effortless Fun

Are you wondering what all the buzz is about Genie+? Well, think of it as your very own wish-granting genie, whisking you away from long queues and into the heart of the action. And here’s the best part: with a touch of strategic planning, you’ll be savoring every magical moment without the wait!

Leveling Up: Crafting Your Genie+ Strategy

Hold onto your Minnie ears, because we’re about to spill the beans on some top-notch tips. We’ve sorted the attractions and Disney character meet ‘n’ greets into three priority levels, each like a treasure map leading to your dream Disney day:

Level 1 Priorities: Where the Magic Begins

These gems disappear faster than Tinker Bell’s flight path! Nabbing a Level 1 spot early is like finding a hidden key to the kingdom. And guess what? If you miss out on one, there’s still plenty of enchantment waiting for you.

Navigating the Genie+ Galaxy: Your Magical Blueprint

Feeling a bit lost in the magic? No worries, we’re here to guide you through:

  • Kickstart with a Bang: Your first Genie+ selection should be a Level 1 priority – like securing a front-row seat on a magical roller coaster.
  • Elevate the Experience: Once you’ve conquered the Level 1s, venture into Level 2 territory for an afternoon and evening of nonstop excitement.
  • The In-Between Magic: If you’re still hungry for adventure, explore the Level 3 options for quick, exhilarating bursts of fun between your main attractions.
Pro Tips for Seamless Success

Stuck with times that don’t quite match your dreams? Give the Tip Board in the My Disney Experience app a little shake (or rather, a swipe down) on Apple devices. And guess what? You can even fine-tune your return time for an extra sprinkle of convenience! Keep checking back throughout the day, as selection times open up all the time.

Ready to Become a Genie+ Genius?

With this treasure trove of knowledge in your back pocket, you’re all set to conquer Magic Kingdom like a seasoned Disney pro. So, grab your Genie+ pass, embrace the adventure, and get ready to create memories that will shine brighter than Cinderella’s glass slipper!
