Genie+ No Longer Allowing Lightning Lane Selections Before Park Hopping Time
An update to Disney Genie+ means guests can no longer make Lightning Lane selections for a second park before a 2:00 p.m. return window opens.
Currently, guests must make a reservation for their first park of the day, visit that park, and then are able to Park Hop to a different park starting at 2:00 p.m. (provided the second park isn’t at capacity).
When making Lightning Lane selections, guests can’t select from different return windows. You may only select the next available return time. Until now, Park Hopping was the exception to this rule. When attempting to make a Lightning Lane selection for a second park, Genie+ would automatically give guests the next available return time after 2:00 p.m.

Now, Genie+ stops guests from making a Lightning Lane selection for the park they are planning to Hop to if the next available return time is before 2:00 p.m. That is, if you’re at EPCOT in the morning trying to make a Lightning Lane selection for Magic Kingdom in the evening, Genie+ won’t let you unless the next available return window is already after 2:00 p.m.
