How Does Lightning Lane in Genie Plus Work?

You can also make a second selection AFTER you redeem that first selection. You can also do a second selection when the first selection’s arrival window has passed. You can also make a second selection 120 minutes AFTER you made your first selection. You can literally do this all day long!
