    We already bought park hopper passes for December. How do we add lightening speed and genie?

    Hi Alison,

    Your tickets are purchased, and your visit is, in the words of Pocahontas, "Just around the riverbend!" That's SO exciting! My very favorite time of year to visit is during the holiday season, so I'm thrilled that you'll be able to experience the gorgeous decorations, delicious seasonal bites and beverages, and touches of the holidays all around the Resort!

    If you'd like to purchase Disney Genie+ for every day of your tickets, I'm happy to share that it may be added to your tickets before you even arrive. You'll simply want to locate your ticket within your My Disney Experience account or pull it up within the My Disney Experience app by clicking the three horizontal lines and selecting "Tickets and Passes," then click "Change Ticket." You'll see the option to add Disney Genie+, and you may pay for the upgrade right then and there. If your tickets are not upgradable or you'd prefer to only add Disney Genie+ for select days, you'll be able to add it one day at a time through the app. You'll be able to purchase it any time after midnight for the next day, and you'll be able to make your first selection beginning at 7:00 AM. Please keep in mind that you'll be able to take advantage of Disney Genie+ one attraction at a time as long as the parks are open. While it will be valid for most attractions (subject to availability), you'll also be able to purchase Individual Lightning Lane selections to schedule up to two of the most popular attractions each day. Individual Lightning Lane selections are available beginning at 7:00 AM for Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel and when the park opens for all other Guests. Here's a handy dandy list of the attractions included and whether they're part of Disney Genie+ or are an Individual Lightning Lane selection. 

    Please don't forget, too, that Disney Genie is a complimentary service designed to help you maximize your time in the parks and build the perfect itinerary. The great thing is that you can use any combination of Disney Genie, Disney Genie+, and Individual Lightning Lanes you'd like. They're all independent from each other, so please feel free to do whatever works best for you and your crew!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Alison. I'm sending pixie dust that your plans all come together perfectly, and I hope you have a truly magical vacation this holiday season!
