    How do I add Genie Service to existing park reservation? I am annual pass holder and I am taking my daughters on 1.21.22 and have purchased their tickets and made reservation months ago.

    Hi Shari! We are so happy you came to see us here at planDisney! I know a lot of fellow Guests are using the new Disney Genie Service and Genie + for the first time and have similar questions. Let's take a magic carpet ride together through some of the ins and outs of these magical new features!

    The Genie has granted us three wishes with the new Disney Genie Service. The first is complimentary within the Disneyland Mobile App and works to help you create an itinerary specifically tailored for you and your family. Basically, a Genie in your pocket granting wishes all day long! You won't need to do anything to add this to your ticket, and you can start telling Genie your interests and must-dos from attractions to dining to characters ... now! I actually recommend adding these in ahead of your park day so that Genie can get to work on your plan. At 7 a.m. on your day of arrival, your suggested schedule will magically arrive into the "My Day" section within your app. The best part? The itinerary will make live updates throughout your day! 

    The second wish is Genie +, which I believe is the upgrade you are talking about in your question. This service builds on your custom itinerary by offering access to time-saving Lightning Lanes on select attractions. Time saved at the Happiest Place on Earth means more time for Mickey beignets and churros! Since you already have your tickets, you can add Genie+ to your tickets from the app soon as you scan into the parks on each day of your visit. On your next trip, you will be able to include Genie+ as an add-on at the time of ticket purchase. Be sure to be on the lookout for the Disney PhotoPass photographers! With Genie+, you will get access to unlimited digital downloads of ALL the memories you capture with your daughters throughout the day.

    The third and final wish granted from the Genie is Independent Lightning Lanes. These are for some of the more popular attractions and are not included in Genie +. Consider these a la carte options to add to your day for attractions such as Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, WEB SLINGERS: An Amazing Spider-Man Adventure and Radiator Springs Racers. If you have Jedis, Avengers or Lightning McQueen fans in your group, you may want to consider adding an Independent Lightning Lane to your day as well. If you're not up for adding on, my recommendation is to head to these attractions when the park first opens for your best chance at lower wait times! 

    Shari, our magic carpet is coming in for a landing. I know it's a whole new world out there with the new Disney Genie Service, but I just know you will find your wishes granted at every turn. If you have any other questions, please feel free to drop in on us again here at planDisney!

    Keep wishing on those stars,
