    Absolute Best Genie+ Strategy for Park Hopping at Disney World

    Absolute Best Genie+ Strategy for Park Hopping at Disney World

    On today’s Disney Podcast, we’re going over something that we recently learned from one of you. We don’t use Genie+ very often at all here at Walt Disney World, so we don’t have a ton of personal experience in coming up with strategies. We love this new Genie+ strategy that you can use to stack Lightning Lanes at the park you’re hopping to later in the day and still enjoy a wonderful and relaxing touring day at your first park where you have a park pass reservation. Enjoy!

Genuine and Entertaining

I don’t normally write reviews for anything it felt the need to for this podcast. I found this podcast a couple of months ago while looking to scratch the Disney itch while planning a trip for our family (plus our exchange student) this March. I am so glad that I found this podcast. Dan and Leslie are extremely easy to listen to and you feel like you’re all sitting around a table having a discussion without the feeling of being “talked at”. You can tell how much they love their chosen career path because they talk so passionately about everything Disney and Universal and that is so refreshing in a world where many podcasts take such a cynical tone. Since finding this podcast, my two youngest kids listen to episodes as we drive to and from school and it is helping to build that vacation anticipation. They are hoping to spot Dan and Leslie in the park but may be too start struck to say hello. 😁 Although we found them after getting our March reservations, I can promise you that we will be using them in the future.

The Fairest of Them All

This podcast is a gem. Dan and Leslie are so knowledgeable about all things Disney, and they know how to take their extensive experience and condense it into an easily digestible format. They stay up to date on what’s happening in the parks and best of all- they aren’t afraid to change their opinions! With the way the parks are evolving it’s so nice to know that I can trust Leslie and Dan to give their listeners relevant advice. I love that they’re not afraid to be honest while still keeping an upbeat attitude and not letting the little things diminish the joy of Disney. Thanks for the podcast, you two are the best!

My favorite part of the week

Our family of 5 loves visiting Disney World. For me, if I’m not at Disney or planning my next Disney trip, I’m still dreaming of Disney 24/7. Your blog and YouTube channel have been more than just educational and entertaining; they are what keeps my Disney Magic alive! I share your fundamental joy of all things Disney and adore your infectious insights. Thank you for keeping the Disney feel’s going across the miles as I eagerly wait for the next time I get to come “Home”.
