We tackle those questions and more in Genie+ 101, the first in our series to help you understand the ins and outs of Genie+. Today in 101 we go over the basics - what you need to know to get started with Genie+. In future episodes we’ll go over advanced tips and tricks to help you shave off every possible minute of wait time as you tour the parks.
