    If I add my daughters QR code to my app and pay for the genie plus for her can she be in control of scheduling their own rides for the lighting lane?

    Hi there, Robin, and welcome to planDisney!

    Almost 60 years ago Mary Poppins told audiences that, "In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun.", and planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation today is no exception to this beloved rule. My husband and I love making reservations for each other with the My Disney Experience mobile app and seeing them appear like magic in our future plans. It's always such a fun surprise to see what the other has scheduled for our next magical vacation.

    I'm happy to confirm that as long as your daughter is connected and sharing plans through your Family & Friends List (my pal Melanie walks you through the process here), beginning at midnight each day you both have valid theme park tickets linked to your My Disney Experience accounts, you will be able to purchase Disney Genie+ service on her behalf. Once you make the purchase, she will have complete freedom to make Lightning Lane reservations from her device with you or independently. If she hopes to enjoy TRON Lightcycle / Run or Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind (which I highly recommend), she'll need to either purchase an individual Lightning Lane entrance or join the virtual queue at 7 AM or 1 PM. 

    Just one more sleep until you're in the middle of the magic, Robin! If you need any additional assistance as you prepare, feel free to reach out to me directly. I'm always happy to help!

    Hakuna Matata!
