Genie +….evening stacking.

Apologies,as I know this has been asked before (I’ve tried a search but can’t find the info I require) , but how does the ‘evening stacking’ work on Genie +? We may possibly invest and add it onto our current tickets and the above does intrigue me, especially on a day in which we may stay in resort or visit a water park in the morning instead of getting to the parks early.

The biggest problem with stacking later in the day is that when you start selecting rides at 7am and then say 11am after the park has been open 2 hours is that rides may only be available for earlier in the day. You can’t select late times except for those popular rides that ‘sell out’ quickly. You have to wait for the next available time to be later.

I didn’t find it worked for us but that may have been the parks we chose to do later in the day. All the times were too early in the day and you can’t select a time. It may work for DHS because it’s so busy and has so many popular rides but we didn’t try it there.

I think I saw people doing it for a post-hop park so the reservations started at 2pm but not sure if that is still a thing?

I found stacking really worked well for Hollywood Studios but didn’t anywhere else. For the other parks, you can maybe book one or two rides for the evening, but most rides will be available on a shorter time frame so you can’t stack them for the evening as you have to take the next available time.

For Hollywood Studios, I could get myself a good afternoon / evening of stacked rides. For Animal Kingdom, I would book Na’vi River a few hours before I intended to use it, but the rest could only be booked whilst there. For EPCOT, I have stacked Frozen and Test Track for the evening and in Magic Kingdom you can book Jungle Cruise and Peter Pan several hours in advance.

Other than that, at these three parks, I would say at most you can book a lightening lane when you know you are on your way over. Of course this will presumably change depending on time of year and general busy-ness, but this was my finding for earlier in May.

The Genie+ trip report in my signature details my experiences using it earlier this month. There is an index on the first page so you can hop to whatever park you are interested in.

I tried stacking for AK as we went in the afternoon. We turned up at 2 and had FOP, Kilimanjaro Safaris and Festival of the Lion King and NAVI all arranged within the first hour and a half so that was a really successful start to the afternoon.

Do you have to be in the park to book?

We did this yesterday at MK and it worked well for us. The first one I booked was jungle cruise at 3:45. But then booked some earlier too. We managed to book (this is the order we rode them): buzz light year, jungle cruise, big thunder railroad mountain, haunted mansion, splash mountain, speedway and also had pirates of the Caribbean but the ride went down. We also did a lot of other rides in between too
