Episode Description

Joe's back from his weeklong trip with his family and learned that no strategy ever survives first contact. He picked up some tips for how to use Genie+ with an odd sized family (5) and kids who will not get up for rope drop. Plus - a pretty solid way to get those individual lightning lanes that worked for him.

How do you handle Genie+ with a family that can't be bothered to rush or rope drop? Let us know by e-mailing disneydeciphered AT gmail DOT com, messaging us on Twitter, or leaving a comment on our Facebook page. You can also follow us on Instagram now!
