NEW Genie+ Strategy: A Quick 6 Step Guide for Magic Kingdom

New Genie+ Strategy

This week, The Mouselets posted on TikTok about a new Genie Plus strategy for Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom that you may want to try. Here’s our quick guide to their method, but check out their video at the bottom for the full story.

The Strategy: Don’t stack Lightning Lanes! Book whatever Genie Plus Lightning Lane has the earliest availability.



Start by booking your Genie Plus as soon as it opens on the app at 7 a.m.

Step 2
Pick a popular ride you want to do and get the early morning slot – like 9:00 or 9:10 a.m.

Step 3
Get to Magic Kingdom, and scan into the Lightning Lane.

Step 4 (KEY STEP)
Book another Genie Plus while you are in line for your first ride of the day! You can start booking right after your current one has been scanned. The KEY is to book whatever ride has the next earliest available time.

Step 5
After you’re off the first ride, go to your second ride, scan in, and book the next one while you’re in line again. Remember, whatever has the next earliest Lightning Lane time.

Step 6
REPEAT!! The cycle goes: Ride, get off, go to next ride, scan in, book another Lightning Lane (the earliest available).

Is This Strategy for You? The Cons.
Booking based on the earliest Lightning Lane times may force you to run back and forth between lands in the Park. The Mouselets ran from Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Frontierland to Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin in Tomorrowland, only to later hit Fantasyland and Liberty Square.

If you are okay with a lot of walking and Park crossing, this could be a fun, roulette way to spend your Disney Parks day.

Keep this in mind!
As it gets later in the day, more people are in the Park, so it may be hard to get early return times for the bigger rides. For example, you might want to Space Mountain out of the way first.

The Mouselets’ goal is to “go from Lightning Lane to Lightning Lane to Lightning Lane as quickly as you can based on whatever has the next earliest slot.”

Scan Magic Band


With this Magic Kingdom Genie Plus strategy, the ladies were able to ride Haunted Mansion, Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan’s Flight, It’s A Small World, The Barnstormer, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, and the Tomorrowland Speedway. That’s not including non- Genie Plus attractions, plus they rode Tron twice. All this was during spring break when crowds are known to be large.

The Mouselets recommend using this Strategy for Day Two at Magic Kingdom, where you’ve already hit the big-ticket attractions on Day One.

They do not recommend using this strategy for Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, or EPCOT.

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
