    how do I add Genie+ for an upcoming trip?

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

    With new ticket purchases, you can select Disney Genie+ as an add-on option. However, if you already have your ticket, you can add the service as soon as you enter through the turnstile at the theme park. Keep your mobile phone handy, 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. You’ll be able to select which tickets you want to add it to. 

    Here are a few more tips to help you use Disney Genie+: 

    - 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 Space Mountain only once in a day, but you could choose to use the standby queue if you want to ride it again that day.

    - 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. 

    - The easiest way to find available Lightning Lane windows is in the Disneyland mobile app under the Tip Board. As you scroll down, for the attractions that have Lightning Lanes, you'll see "LL Disney Genie+" with a link to "Book Experience."

    - 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 10:00 a.m. you made a Lightning Lane selection for Incredicoaster, for which the arrival window starts at 1:00 p.m.. At 12:00 p.m., you can make another Lightning Lane selection, even though you haven’t redeemed your Incredicoaster Lightning Lane yet. Pro tip from my daughter - set a timer on your phone to remind you when to make your next selection!

    - Genie+ gives you complimentary access to Disney PhotoPass for the day. This is a huge perk for me as I love capturing photos throughout the parks. 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. Be sure to ask the photographer about taking a Magic Shot which includes special effects or character surprises. I have a bunch of these from my recent trip! 

    Enjoy staying one jump ahead of the breadline – it’s a whole new world, trust me! 

    Magic awaits,
