    Can I add FastPass to my already purchased tickets

    Hi Denise! Welcome to planDisney. We just love helping fellow Guests find ways to make their own magic at the Happiest Place on Earth!

    While the FastPass and MaxPass systems have gone to the afterlife with the 999 Grim Grinning Ghosts of the Haunted Mansion, it wouldn't be Disney if something new and even more magical didn't come along to replace them! Enter ... the one and only Genie himself! With the new Genie+ system, you will gain access to Lightning Lanes at select attractions throughout both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park so you can be one jump ahead of the crowds. The great news is that you can add Genie+ to the tickets you have already purchased once you have scanned into the parks. If you are visiting for multiple days, you will need to add it each day, but that process is smoother than a magic carpet ride through Agrabah:

    1. As soon as you go through those Main Entrance Gates and everyone in your party has scanned their theme park ticket, open up the Disneyland Mobile App. 

    2. Navigate to the "+" in the bottom navigation bar and choose "View My Genie Day and Tip Board".

    3. Toggle to the "My Day" tab and you should see a purple box that asks if you want to "Take Today to the Next Level". And, you do ... you definitely do. Tap in here and Genie+ will be yours! 

    If you have linked theme park tickets for everyone in your party to your account, you can make Lightning Lane selections for the full group. Lightning Lanes work similarly to MaxPass where you select one at a time. At Disneyland, you can make your first selection as soon as you are in the parks, which differs from Walt Disney World where you can make it at 7 a.m. To make selections, open up the "Tip Board" in the app and you will see the return times that are available to you. Once you've made your first selection, you can make a second either two hours later or once you tap into the first. I recommend setting a two-hour timer on your phone to remind you when you can make that next selection. You can even go into the app ahead of your visit to get a sense of what the Tip Board looks like and the information it provides!

    While you will be able to enjoy access to 19 (!) Lightning Lane attractions, there are a few attractions where access to the Lightning Lanes is not included Genie+ - Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Radiator Springs Racers, and WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure. These are Individual Lightning Lanes where access can be purchased à la carte whether or not you have Genie+. When you open the app to the "Tip Board", you will see the next available return time and option to purchase. 

    While our magic carpet is coming in for a landing, I do want to tell you about a final wish that the Genie will grant. With your Genie+ upgrade, you will also get unlimited digital downloads of ALL the Disney PhotoPass photos taken that day. So be sure to hop in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, pose in front of the Millennium Falcon, and ask for all the Magic Shots because those photos and memories are yours to keep!

    Denise, I hope this was helpful! If you have any more questions, we are always here for you at planDisney!

    Magic awaits!
