    For Disneyland/California Adventure regarding Genie+ selections: Can I enter park myself at 7:00am and book a Genie+ (or ala cart) Lightening Lane attraction for everyone in our family, or does everyone need to enter park at 7:00am?

    Hi there, David! We've heard you've summoned us by rubbing Aladdin's lamp. Thank you for choosing our planDisney Magic Carpet for all your travel needs! 

    You've asked a great question! At Disneyland Resort, you can start booking your first window for Genie+ Lightning Lane entrances as soon as you have scanned your ticket to enter a park for the morning. The same goes for the other members of your traveling party, and the app won't allow you to book attractions or experiences for them until they have entered. If you haven't pre-purchased Genie+ for the length of your ticket, you'll need to purchase it first through the Disneyland app. The option to buy it will be grayed out if you try to do it before you've entered either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. I have teenage boys, so I know how hard it is when some family members would like to sleep in, and you're ready to rope drop!

    Here are a couple of other Genie+ tips: 
    *Once you've redeemed your first attraction (or the arrival window has passed), you can use your Tip Board or My Day itinerary to see if you're eligible to make another selection. 
    *If you have a Park Hopper ticket, you can also make Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations for another park. Park Hopping is allowed beginning at 1:00 pm, so make sure that your attraction return time is at 1:00 pm or later if you plan to switch parks.
    *You'll receive unlimited PhotoPass downloads and exclusive audio tours of the parks with Walt Disney Imagineers and special guests with your Genie+ purchase!

    I hope this helps. Remember, David, "You ain't never had a friend like me!" Please write back if there's anything else you need.
