    I have already purchased a ticket and have reservations. I'd like to purchase the Genie+. How can I add this to my ticket?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Karen! Welcome to planDisney. Thanks so much for stopping by with your question. Genie has been a true friend to me and I’m happy to share his magic with you. My family has saved hours upon hours of time by leveraging the Lightning Lanes with Disney Genie+

    Since you already have your ticket, you can add the service as soon as you enter through the turnstile at the theme park. Keep your mobile phone handy, and once you have entered, go to the Disneyland mobile app, click on “My Genie Day” and you’ll see a link labeled “Get Disney Genie+ for Today.” Here you can purchase the service for your ticket as well as others linked to your account. You’ll be able to select which tickets you want to add Genie+ to.

    If I may, here are a few more tips about Genie+: 

    - You will have access to Lightning Lanes for 19 attractions between the two theme parks. You can pick one Lightning Lane per attraction per day. For example, you can use the Lightning Lane for Haunted Mansion only once in a day, but you could choose to use the standby queue if you want to experience it again that day.

    - The easiest way to find available Lightning Lane windows is in the Disneyland mobile app under the Tip Board. As you scroll down, for the attractions that have Lightning Lanes, you'll see "LL Disney Genie+" with a link to "Book Experience."

    - There are three attractions not included in Genie+ - these have Individual Lightning Lanes you can purchase ‘a la carte’ per ride, with or without Genie+. These Individual Lightning Lanes can be purchased for up to two different attractions each day, so plan accordingly as you can’t do all three Individual Lightning Lane attractions in a single day. 

    - You can make your next selection immediately after your current selection has been scanned at the attraction entrance. And, if it’s been more than 120 minutes from the time you made the selection, even if your current selection’s arrival window hasn’t started, you can make a new selection. Example: at 10:00 a.m. you made a Lightning Lane selection for Matterhorn Bobsleds, for which the arrival window starts at 1:00 p.m.. At 12:00 p.m., you can make another Lightning Lane selection, even though you haven’t redeemed your Matterhorn Bobsleds Lightning Lane yet. Pro tip from my daughter - set a timer on your phone to remind you when to make your next selection!

    - Genie+ gives you complimentary access to Disney PhotoPass for the day. I love capturing photos throughout the parks so this is a perk we really enjoy. You will have access to attraction photos as well as those taken by Disney PhotoPass Photographers. Be sure to ask the photographer about taking a Magic Shot which includes special effects or character surprises!

    Enjoy your magic carpet ride, Karen!
