Disney Genie is smart and will continue to update your itinerary throughout the day, so you can be more spontaneous and take advantage of short attraction wait times. 

And if you want to take your day to the next level, upgrade to the Disney Genie+ service to choose arrival windows for the new Lightning Lane entry on select attractions and experiences.
