IF you end up spending more time in the lines than on the rides every time you go to Disney World or Disney Land, you might want to listen up.
A Disney travel agent has revealed her secrets to making the most of your next trip and that includes skipping the long lines.
STAY INSIDE THE PARK
If you can afford it, you should book a resort inside the park as this will give you early access to the parks.
According to Diercksen, “you will get into the park half an hour early if you stay in one of the inside properties.
“You’re going to have an extra headstart versus the people who aren’t staying.”
Although this might be slightly pricey, you have to remember that time is money.
And if you’re worried about breaking the bank with this solution, there are multiple resort options for every budget.
Staying inside the parks will also save you money on renting a car and finding a place to park it for the entirety of the day.
Ultimately, staying inside the park will save you both money and time, and get you in the park earlier.
If staying inside the parks isn’t an option for you, there’s another way.
“Disney just launched a new service called the Genie+,” she revealed.
Guests can use the Disney Genie+ service to “prebook” queue slots through the Lightning Lane entrance, letting visitors skip the normal line, which can take anywhere between 30 to 90 minutes.
This new service includes personalized itinerary planning, forecasted future wait times for attractions, a virtual assistant, mobile ordering, restaurant waitlist, check-in, reservations, and most importantly, virtual queues (available at certain attractions).
“It’s basically like a placeholder for you. Instead of you standing there, it’ll tell you to come back at a certain time,” Diercksen explained.
However, this service doesn’t come free and it’ll cost you $15 per person per day.
Within the Genie app as well, there are certain rides that will let you schedule your place in line.
The Individual Attraction Selection will charge you on top of the Genie fee per ride, but all you have to do is schedule a time slot and show up. That’s it.
“You will schedule your time but you pay more on top of the $15,” the expert concluded.
