    Are you able to use Genie+ when you only have an event ticket? My husband and I have tickets Sweetheart's Night at Disneyland and was wondering whether or not we could use Genie+ in the hours before the event starts!

    Hey there, Allison! Welcome to planDisney. I am SO excited to hear you are going to be attending one of the recently announced Disneyland After Dark events!

    I have to say you've brought a fabulous question to us --  one that I've been searching and searching to find the perfect answer for you. To be honest though, Disney Genie+ is still so new that we haven't had the opportunity to see if it's something that will be available for us as an add-on to Special Event Tickets. Hopefully, this is information that will be released soon! Since all previously purchased tickets require that you make your Disney Genie+ once you get into the parks, I would have the Disneyland app ready to see if that is a possibility once you enter. I think the issue you could run into is that if you are able to activate Dinsey Genie+, some attractions/selections could be filled for the day. And in my opinion even if it is available, I'm not sure it is necessary!

    One of the things that I love about these Special Event Tickets, like Disneyland After Dark: Sweethearts' Nite, is that you have lower crowds in the parks. That means that usually there are shorter lines for your favorite attractions! Another benefit of this event is that similarly to Disney Genie+, you get access to unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads. Of course, the list of fun extras goes on and on. I was able to attend an after-hours event last year and I had such a good time riding my favorite rides with short wait times, catching the fireworks, and dancing the night away. As a self-proclaimed Disneyland foodie, I would recommend splurging on all the event-exclusive treats instead!

    I hope you have the best time partying in the name of love at Disneyland After Dark: Sweethearts' Nite! I'm anxiously waiting for Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite tickets to go on sale, so I too can experience one of this year's events. Thanks again for stopping by, Allison! We hope to see you real soon!

You'll find us in the parks braving drops and coasters to work up our appetite to take as many snack breaks as we can fit in! I love helping my friends plan memorable trips to Disneyland Resort and can't wait to help you too! Learn More About Carrie
