    Am I able to purchase Genie+ passes for every/any person on my Friends & Family list? For ex: if I’m staying at a Disney resort but my family member isn’t, but we are ‘friends & family’ in the app… am I able to buy us both Genie+ passes at 7am?

    Hey Howdy Hey Lauren and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you so much for stopping by with your question about Genie+ and booking Lightning Lane Entry selections for your party. I will be happy to shed a little light on the process so you can get back to your final preparations for your Magical vacation in a few short days!

    When it comes to the purchase of Genie+, as long as everyone is connected to the My Disney Experience app and sharing plans, you should be able to make the purchase of Genie+ for everyone. On the day you are going to make this purchase, you should be prompted on the members of your party you are purchasing for. You should have the option to purchase Genie+ for everyone in the party or only a select few if needed. Once you purchase Genie+, you will have access to make your first Lightning Lane Entry selection starting at 7:00 AM EST for everyone in your party. The next window for Lightning Lane Entry booking will open 2 hours after the park officially opens or after your tap into redeeming your first experience, whichever comes first. 

    When it comes to the purchase of Individual Lightning Lane selections, this process is a little different. These experiences are available in each park for super popular attractions such as Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT. With these purchases, you will still have the option to purchase Individual Lightning Lane entries for everyone in the party, however, this will be limited to those staying onsight at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel or other qualifying resorts. If you have members in your party staying offsite and not in qualifying resorts, there usually is a block in the app that will not let you select those members in your party. You will have the option to book these experiences for everyone starting when the park officially opens for those staying offsite. 

    I hope that was helpful to clear up the difference in Genie+ and Lightning Lane selections as well as the difference when booking Individual Lightning Lane experiences. Please feel free to reach back out and let us know if you have any further questions, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
