    According to the Website, I can add Genie+ to my reservations on the website, but I am unable to find instructions on how to do so. I don't want to risk messing up my current reservations by clicking on the wrong thing.

    Heigh-ho Roger, it's off to Walt Disney World you go!

    In just a couple of months, you'll be whistling as you work on your way to the Most Magical Place on Earth. With the 50th-anniversary celebration underway, there are even more incredible experiences to enjoy. I can't wait for you to see Cinderella Castle as it glows with EARidescent light. 

    In most cases, you can add Genie+ to your existing tickets ahead of time, for the duration of your ticket, and it shouldn't impact any theme park reservations you've already made. Start by opening the My Disney Experience Mobile App on a smartphone and tapping on the three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner of the home screen. Next select "Tickets & Passes," find the ticket you'd like to add Genie+ to, and click on "Change Ticket." Follow the prompts to let the Genie out of the lamp and make all your wishes come true!

    If you're only interested in making Genie+ part of your world for a portion of a multi-day visit, or you're not sure you want to purchase it for the entirety of your ticket, you can also add it one day at a time once your vacation begins. I recommend going this route anyway since you might not need or want or need Genie+ for the duration of your stay. You might save a little money and have more to spend on Disney snacks! 

    On a day you would like to purchase Genie+, open the My Disney Experience Mobile App and click on those three small horizontal lines again to bring up the welcome screen. Next, select the magic lamp icon that says "My Day." Find a purple bar that says "Get Genie+ Service," then follow the prompts to select your party members and finalize payment. You can do this as early as midnight of the day you'd like to purchase Genie+, but since you can't make your first Lightning Lane selection until 7 AM, I suggest taking care of this over breakfast before heading out for the day.

    I hope this is helpful, Roger. Best wishes for an incredible spring getaway, and if there's anything else we at planDisney can do to help as your vacation approaches, don't hesitate to reach out again. We're all EARS!

    Happy holidays,
