    Am I able to purchase Genie+ for all members of my party (those listed under “We’re planning together” on my Friends & Family list) or do they each need to purchase it separately?

    Greetings, Danie!

    It looks like you are just hours away from visiting Walt Disney World Resort and we are glad to see you here at planDisney. We love nothing more than helping other Guests get their vacations off to a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious start, so let’s get going!

    You will be happy to know that making and paying for Genie+ selections for your Friends & Family who are already planning together is, as Mary Poppins would say, a piece of cake. You simply open your My Disney Experience app on the day you would like to purchase Genie+ and tap the + menu icon found at the bottom of the home screen. Then you will select View My Genie Day and Tip Board. Once there, you will see Genie himself inviting you to “Purchase for Today.” On the next screen, scroll down and select Get Disney Genie+ Service. On the next screen, you will have the option to Confirm Your Party and select the other Guests you would like to include. Then simply follow the prompts for payment. 

    Daniel, to expedite this process I recommend having a Card on File so that you won’t need to enter your credit card information for each purchase of Genie+ or Individual Lightning Lanes. 

    I have a few tips to keep in mind as you plan your days! 
    1. You can purchase Genie+ any time after midnight on the day you plan to use it and begin making your selections at 7:00 a.m. (ET). 
    2. If your group would like to split up at any time during the day, each person can have their own Genie+ selections. 
    3. Genie+ includes some magical surprises! You'll receive digital downloads of select Disney PhotoPass attraction photos (taken in the park on the day you purchase Disney Genie+ service) and access to special Disney PhotoPass Lens. You will also find Audio Tales with fun facts and behind-the-scene stories about many attractions. 

    Daniel, please remember that Disney Genie+ service, attractions and experiences may vary by date, are subject to change, are not guaranteed and may not be available on the date or time of your visit. But in my experience, everything is spit-spot and Genie+ will make your holiday jolly!

    If you have any other questions or need other tips, just write back and let me know. When it comes to planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, here at planDisney we believe that in every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. Once you find the fun, the job's a game!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
