    How do I add photo pass, fast pass, or a dining package to my ticket?

    Hiya, Leonard, and welcome to planDisney! You'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort in a few short months, and you'll be there during one of my favorite festivals, the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. I love sampling the food from the festival booths, and the Garden Rocks Concert Series is always a fabulous way to relax after all that eating! It sounds like you're in full planning mode, so let's get started!

    Smile for the camera! There are a couple of ways to purchase photos from your visit. If you think you'll want all of the photos taken by the Disney PhotoPass photographers, I'd suggest purchasing Memory Maker online before your trip to take advantage of a discount. Your photos will be available in your My Disney Experience Mobile App for digital downloads, including photos taken at attractions and any Magic Shots the PhotoPass photographers take. Another option is to purchase Memory Maker One Day for pictures from a particular day in the parks. 

    Leonard, you sound like me because I don't like long waits for attractions. The newest service that lets you bypass the standby queue on many attractions in all four theme parks is called Genie+ Service. You can purchase this in your mobile app the morning of each park day, and at 7:00 AM, you can choose your first attraction. Then, when you're within your return window, you can just head to the attraction and enter the Lightning Lane queue. Your wait will be much shorter! You can make a new choice when you scan into your existing attraction or every two hours, whichever comes first. I love the flexibility of choosing which days I'd like to purchase Genie+ because I've found I use it more at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Finally, dining packages have been on hold for a while, Leonard. There's a Disney Dining Promo Card Special Offer, but it won't be valid during your travel dates. One tip I'd like to offer is to purchase Disney Gift Cards and load them for each day of your visit. You can buy them in advance every few weeks or so and load them per person or day. It's like a layaway plan for your dining! Also, please remember to book any Table Service reservations online precisely 60 days before your arrival. 

    Leonard, I hope I've given you some planning tips to help you have a smooth and magical visit this summer. Please stop by planDisney anytime because I'd love to answer any questions you might have. 

    Magic awaits,
