    How do I add genie + to my reservation?

    Hi there, Madison! Lots of inquiring minds wish to know about the new Disney Genie+ service. Since you rubbed the planDisney magic lamp, your wish is our command!

    Disney Genie+ (along with the à la carte Individual Lightning Lane related service) is an upgraded option that offers a way for Disneyland guests to enter through a special queue called the Lightning Lane rather than the standby line. Currently, there are two ways to buy it:
    1. If you want to use it for your entire trip, you can add on Genie+ when you purchase your multi-day theme park tickets.
    2. If you've already purchased your tickets, you'll need to buy Genie+ as soon as you enter the park turnstiles. If you already have the Disneyland Mobile app downloaded and your credit card information stored, it will only take a few moments. With this method, you will need to purchase it anew each day you visit the Parks.

    The Disneyland website has some short video tutorials that are very helpful. A few other things that are worth mentioning are:
    *Regardless of how you purchase Genie+, all Disneyland guests can make their first Genie+ selection or Individual Lightning Lane purchase upon entering the Park. Neither has an advantage over the other.
    *While you have to enter a theme park to activate Genie+, you do not have to stay in the Park. Feel free to go back to your hotel or do some shopping in the Downtown Disney District, and you can continue to use your Tip Board to reserve Lighting Lane return windows.
    *Guests can make one reservation at a time and make a subsequent reservation immediately upon scanning into an attraction. You're also eligible to make another selection if you're currently holding on to a reservation with an arrival window that's more than two hours away from the time the selection was made.
    *You do not need to get Genie+ to buy individual Lightning Lane selections. 

    I hope this helps, Madison! Remember, "You ain't never had a friend like me!" Take care.
