    How do I add genie plus to existing tickets?

    Hi Michelle, welcome to planDisney!

    You are less than two weeks away from the magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Eek! I had a dream last night that I secured a coveted spot in the virtual queue for the brand-new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction at EPCOT. I woke up before I could experience this one-of-a-kind reverse-launch coaster, but I'm hoping that dream comes true for both of us this summer. This attraction can also be experienced as an Individual Lightning Lane purchase. Disney Resorts Collection hotel Guests can purchase Individual Lightning Lane attractions beginning at 7:00 a.m. in the My Disney Experience mobile app; all other Guests may purchase at park opening.   

    Disney Genie+ service gives Guests access to Lightning Lane attractions at over 40 attractions throughout the theme parks. Genie+ is granting even more wishes this summer. Until August 7, the list of Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions includes Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Frozen Ever After and Remy's Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT, Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom park and Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park.  

    Before June 8, you can add Disney Genie+ service to certain ticket types in advance for the duration of your ticket. To see if this is an option for your tickets, open up your My Disney Experience mobile app, click the three small lines at the bottom right of the home screen, then "Tickets and Passes." Scroll to your desired ticket and see if there is an option to "Change Ticket." If so, click it and follow the prompts to add Genie+ for your entire stay. 

    If the "Change Ticket" option does not appear, that just means you'll need to purchase Disney Genie+ service the morning of each park day. You can do this anytime after midnight in the My Disney Experience app by clicking those three small lines, clicking "My Genie Day," then scrolling down to the purple banner and clicking "Get Disney Genie+ for Today." This method is required for all Guests after June 8.

    Make sure each member of your party has valid admission and a theme park reservation for each park day linked to My Disney Experience. As long as you're connected as Family and Friends, you can make Genie+ plans for them and they can make plans for you. All Guests can reserve their first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction in the My Disney Experience app as early as 7:00 a.m. each park day (three small lines --> Tip Board).

    You ain't never had a friend like Disney Genie+ service, but planDisney is also here to help you have a magical vacation. Don't hesitate to reach out with any more planning questions before, during, or after your vacation.
