    How do I add Disney Genie + to existing tickets I already purchased?

    Hey There, Bria!

    Welcome to planDisney.  With the Genie+ service's phenomenal cosmic powers, you can speed through Walt Disney World Lightning Lanes, which saves you time and can help pack more fun into your day.  It took a morning or so of fiddling with Genie+ to figure it out during my most recent trip, but once I got the hang of things, I really enjoyed using it.  I'm excited to hear that you're planning to give Genie+ a try when you visit!

    Since you've already purchased your tickets, you'll need to add Genie+ individually each day.  You can do this right from the My Disney Experience mobile app beginning at the stroke of midnight of the day you plan to use the service.  Don't worry, though –– you won't turn into a pumpkin if you don't make your purchase as the clock strikes 12.  I actually prefer to get up the next morning and add it to my tickets right before I make Lightning Lane selections at 7 AM. To make your purchase, all you need to do is sign into the app using your Disney Account and tap on the three lines at the bottom of the screen.  Select "My Genie Day" from the menu and on the next screen, tap the purple box that says "Get Genie+ for Today".  Follow the on-screen prompts to add members to your party and confirm your purchase and that's it!  You'll be ready to make your first Lightning Lane selection for the day.

    I love the option to add Genie+ to each day, individually, because it allows me to tailor it to my plans. For instance, I really like using it at Magic Kingdom Park –– because there are a ton of available attractions–– and on park hopping days when I can use it at more than one park.  But if I'm planning to spend the morning at my Resort and head to EPCOT for the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival that evening, Genie+ probably isn't going to get much use.  Because I haven't added it to every day of my ticket, I can save a little money, which I put towards a few extra snacks from the festival's Outdoor Kitchens –– YUM.  Also, remember that you don't need Genie+ to make Individual Lightning Lane selections.  That means if you'd like to grab an Individual Lightning Lane spot for Remy's Ratatouille Adventure without purchasing Genie+ for that day, you're welcome to do so.

    Thanks for visiting planDisney with your question, Bria.  I hope Genie+ helps you get "One Jump Ahead" during your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    See Ya Real Soon,
