    Can I add Genie + to my tickets that we'll be using at the end of January now? If so, what steps do I need to take? Thanks

    Welcome to planDisney, Sherrie!

    Thanks for choosing to be our Guest. It's my joy to help you with your question. 

    Guests can purchase Disney Genie+ before their visit, either as an add-on with a new ticket or with vacation package purchases. If you've already purchased your tickets, Disney Genie+ can only be purchased on a day-to-day basis through the Disneyland Mobile App on the day of your park visit after you've entered the theme park (subject to availability). Since availability is limited, you'll have to check the app after park entry for pricing and availability.

    Here's a tip: try to arrive at the theme park nice and early. The lines are significantly shorter during the first couple of hours. This will enable you to experience a good chunk of attractions using the standby lines. I usually wait and book my first Lightning Lane selection for around 10:30 AM. This is usually when the parks start getting busier. And since you can only make a Lightning Lane selection once per ride, you're better off using the standby lines while they're not too long.

    I hope that's clarifying, Sherrie. My family really benefited from using Disney Genie+ on our most recent Disneyland Resort trip. Despite having a couple of small Mouseketeers with us, we were able to experience a lot of attractions per day. We also really enjoyed taking advantage of the unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads you get each day when you purchase Disney Genie+. We got some great family pictures that we'll cherish forever.

    See ya real soon, Sherrie. ChEARS!
