    How do I add lightning pass to my trip?

    Hello, Suzanne!

    Welcome to planDisney! I am ecstatic that you found us and brought your question to us before you depart on your magical adventure next week! You are going to join in the World’s Most Magical Celebration. Be sure to take advantage of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration Sips and Bites Guide. This handy on-the-go guide can be found on the My Disney Experience mobile app and will let you know where you can find the exclusive entrees, snacks, sweets, and cocktails created for the celebration. 

    Recently, there has been a change in how Guests can add the Disney Genie+ service to their tickets. As of June 8, 2022, Disney Genie+ can only be added to a ticket on the day that you are planning to use the service. You can add Genie+ to your tickets any time after Midnight. If you are not a night owl, or still awake from closing down the park the night before, you can always add Genie+ to your ticket before the Lightning Lane selection window opens at 7:00 AM. Most of my friends were able to add Genie+ to their tickets at 6:45 AM and were ready to make their first selection. 

    Remember to use Genie+ you must have a valid theme park ticket along with a park pass reservation for the park you are planning to visit that day. All Guests can make their first selection at 7:00 AM and their next selection 2 hours after the regular park opening or after you have redeemed your first selection, whichever is first. Disney Genie+ is $15 per person, per day, the rate is subject to change. To add this feature to your tickets, open the My Disney Experience mobile app and scroll down to Disney Genie+ Service and tap on Purchase for today. Select the members of your party, review the details, and then confirm your purchase. You are all set to begin using the service for the day. The key to finding your favorite attractions is to keep refreshing your Tip Board until you find an available time. 

    If you want to add an a la carte, Individual Lightning Lane to your plans. A valid ticket and park pass reservation are also required. Genie+ is not required to use this service. Prices and availability will vary depending on the attraction and theme park. Guests of Disney Resorts Collection Hotels can make their selections at 7:00 AM all other Guests must wait until the official park opening to make their selections. 

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again. 

    See ya real soon,
