    How do I add Genie+ to my reservation and tickets

    Salaam and good evening, Mark. Welcome to Agrabah (I mean, planDisney!) As a trusted advisor of the Royal Sultan, I am pleased to help you find the extraordinary lamp to get your wishes.

    As you already have your tickets, you can add the Disney Genie+ service as soon as you enter through the turnstile at the theme park. Have your mobile phone in hand, and once you have entered, go to the Disneyland mobile app, click on “My Genie Day” and you’ll see a link labeled “Get Disney Genie+ for Today.” Here you can purchase the service for your ticket as well as others linked to your account. 

    I was just at Disneyland Resort last week and using Genie+ saved me hours of time, enabling me to do more in my day. If I may, here are a few more tips to help you:

    - You will have access to Lightning Lanes for 19 attractions between the two theme parks. You can pick one Lightning Lane per attraction per day. For example, you can use the Lightning Lane for Haunted Mansion only once in a day, but you could choose to use the standby queue if you want to board the doom buggy again.

    - There are three attractions not included in Genie+ - these have Individual Lightning Lanes you can purchase ‘a la carte’ per ride, with or without having Genie+. These Individual Lightning Lanes can be purchased for up to two different attractions each day, so plan accordingly because you can’t do all three Individual Lightning Lane attractions in a single day. 

    - You can make your next selection immediately after your current selection has been scanned at the attraction entrance. And, if it’s been more than 120 minutes from the time you made the selection, even if your current selection’s arrival window hasn’t started, you can make a new selection. Example: at 8:00 a.m. you made a Lightning Lane selection for Incredicoaster, for which the arrival window starts at 11:00 a.m.. At 10:00 a.m., you can make another Lightning Lane selection, even though you haven’t redeemed your Incredicoaster Lightning Lane yet. Pro tip - set a timer on your phone to remind you when to make your next selection!

    - Guess what, Genie+ gives you complimentary access to Disney PhotoPass for the day! I love capturing photos throughout the parks so this is a huge hit with me. When you link attraction photos as well as those taken by Disney PhotoPass Photographers, you’ll have access to unlimited digital downloads for the day. Extra tip - ask the photographer about taking a Magic Shot which includes special effects or character surprises! 

    As Jafar is still buried deep in the Arabian sands, he should not get in the way of you having a wonderful time. Your magic carpet ride awaits!
