    I already purchased my park tickets and made a reservation but now I am trying to add the Genie service. How do I do that?

    Hey Chrissy,

    Welcome back to planDisney! It sounds like you are already off to a great start with your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation. Disney's Genie+ service can be the perfect add-on to your Theme Park days. If you plan it out well, you can use Genie to help you save time waiting in lines and experience more attractions during busy Theme Park days.

    Currently, Genie+ is only being offered for purchase through the My Disney Experience mobile app starting at midnight the day of your visit. Please note that you will only be able to purchase Genie+ services for one day at a time (subject to availability) and will need to repeat this process for every day you plan to use Genie+ services. It's a win-win in my book because you get to make a judgment call about whether or not you want Genie+ for every day or just certain ones. This could also save you some money in the long run that can be used for merchandise and Mickey-shaped snacks.

    To add Genie+ services starting at midnight, just follow these three easy steps:

    1. Open your My Disney Experience mobile app and select the three horizontal lines in the bottom right-hand corner.
    2. Select the "My Genie Day" tile from the options shown.
    3. Click "Get Disney Genie+ Service" and submit your payment.

    I have to share one tip with you about Disney Genie+; you do not necessarily need to stay up until midnight to purchase Genie+ services. If you are up, feel free to add Genie+ at midnight; otherwise, I would wait until you wake up for your Theme Park day (provided it is before 7 am and there is still availability for Disney Genie+ for that day). Sleep during Walt Disney World Resort vacations is precious, so any time I can add a little extra, the better.

    Thank you again for bringing your question to us at planDisney. If you still need help with Genie or anything else, please come back and see us!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
