    How do I add my family members who bought tickets separately to my genie plus?

    Hi Kami, welcome to planDisney!

    After over 10,000 years stuck in a lamp with an itty bitty living space, the Genie's phenomenal cosmic powers have been unleashed at the expansive Walt Disney World Resort. The complimentary Disney Genie service grants your wish for help navigating the theme parks with a custom tip board, personalized itinerary creator, and interactive map. Disney Genie+ service grants your wish for minimal wait times at over 40 attractions throughout the theme parks via Lightning Lane entrances. The Genie must be getting generous in his old age because I'm counting way more than three wishes!

    Disney Genie+ service is available for a set price per person per day and can be purchased in advance for the duration of your ticket or each day in the My Disney Experience mobile app. Genie+ gives a single person access to Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions, Genie+ PhotoPass Lenses, and Audio Tales featuring behind-the-scenes information, though it's certainly possible to connect with other members of your planning party if you wish to purchase Disney Genie+ for them, book Lightning Lane attractions together, and/or purchase Individual Lightning Lane attractions together.

    The place for all of your family members to connect is My Disney Experience. To harness the powers of Genie+ together, everyone must be connected as Family and Friends. To do this online: 

    1. Create or sign in to your My Disney Experience account.
    2. From your Family and Friends list, click "Add a Guest."
    3. Select "I'll enter their name and age."
    4a. Enter a family member's name and age. For Guests under age 13 and those that do not wish to create their own My Disney Experience accounts, you will manage all of their plans.
    4b. For Guests over the age of 13 that have or wish to have their own My Disney Experience account, select "Invite this Guest to connect," which does not appear as a selection until after you enter the Guest's age. Once you enter the Guest's email address, they will receive an email invitation that needs to be accepted for you to officially be connected as Family and Friends.
    5. Click "Update" beside your name in your Family and Friends list to make sure your Family and Friends list is shared. This will make it easier for members of your Family and Friends to connect, which is required if they wish to make Lightning Lane reservations for the entire party.

    Valid admission and park pass reservations must also be linked in My Disney Experience for Genie+ to make magic on your park days. The process of linking vacation entitlements gets a lot easier once you and your planning party are connected as Family and Friends.

    Please reach out with any follow-up tech-stions. As you plan Disney, planDisney is hEAR for you!
