    How do I add Lightning passes to my tickets for 12/24

    Hi Tina,

    Welcome to planDisney! How exciting that you'll be spending Christmas Eve at The Most Magical Place on Earth! Between the gorgeous decorations, festive music, scrumptious seasonal bites and beverages, and touches of the holidays all around the Resort, you'll head back home with a heart full of magical memories and Christmas joy!

    Disney Genie+ will leave you feeling like true Disney royalty as you skip those standby lines with access to most of the Lightning Lanes, one at a time. If you have standard tickets, you'll be able to add this time-saving service ahead of time by locating your ticket within your My Disney Experience account and clicking "Change Ticket." By adding Disney Genie+ ahead of time, you'll have it on each day of your ticket. If you have complimentary tickets (which are not able to be upgraded) or would only like to use Disney Genie+ on select days, you'll be able to purchase it one day at a time. It becomes available to buy at midnight, and you'll be able to make your first selection each morning at 7:00 AM. If you're interested in accessing all of the Lightning Lanes, you'll want to look into purchasing Individual Lightning Lane selections as well. This service is reserved for two of the most popular attractions in each park that happen to be excluded from the Disney Genie+ service. If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you'll be able to purchase and make those selections at 7:00 AM as well. If you're staying elsewhere, they'll become available when the park opens for the day. Of course, don't forget that Disney Genie is a complimentary service that you can take advantage of, too, to help you maximize your time in the parks! 

    Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney, Tina, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're thinking through the details of your visit. I hope you have a truly magical vacation this holiday season!
