GUIDE: How to ‘Stack’ Multiple Lightning Lane Reservations With Genie+ at Walt Disney World
Though Disney states that with Genie+ on My Disney Experience, guests cannot book more than one Lightning Lane selection at a time, there is a way to “stack” multiple selections around the same time.
Guests with Genie+ may book their first attraction starting at 7:00 a.m. on the day of their visit. In the Tip Board section of My Disney Experience, it will suggest the next available window open for each attraction. You can only book one Lightning Lane selection at a time.
No matter what window you select for an attraction’s Lightning Lane, you will be able to book another Lightning Lane selection after using the first or after the window expires, 2 hours after park open, or 2 hours after booking a selection.
To hold more than one Lightning Lane selection at once, guests have to wait two hours (120 minutes) after making the initial selection.
For example, at 7:00 a.m., we booked a Slinky Dog Dash return window of 3:25 p.m. – 4:25 p.m. Two hours after the park opened, we were then able to book access to The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror from 3:35 p.m. – 4:35 p.m. These times overlap, but we can hold both because they are not the exact same window.
At 1 p.m., we selected a Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run window of 5:15 p.m. – 6:15 p.m.
Finally, at 3 p.m., we added another ride with Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith from 6:10 p.m. – 7:10 p.m.
So over the course of six hours, we were able to book three Lightning Lane windows via Genie+ for the evening, plus the one we booked before the park opened. This will allow us to do a number of attractions in sequence with little to no wait.
The caveat is that you cannot choose your time slot, you can only book the next available window, so you have to monitor the app to time it right.
