    I already have my tickets and reservations. Can I add lightning lane to an existing reservation? Where do I do that?

    Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it’s off to planDisney you go, Kim!

    Your Disneyland Resort getaway will be here in just a couple of months, so let the countdown begin! I’m excited to hEAR that you’re planning to harness the power of Disney Genie+ Service – it’s my favorite handy helper in the parks, and it can save you so much time during your vacation. 

    Disney Genie+ can be added to your tickets in two different ways -- either as part of your ticket purchase on Disneyland.com, or on a daily basis on the Disneyland app, as soon as you enter one of the theme parks. So, since you already purchased your theme park tickets, you'll need to wait until you’ve entered Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park to add Genie+ to your tickets. You’ll need to add it each day of your vacation upon entering one of the theme parks. 

    To help you get started, you’ll want to make sure you have the Disneyland app downloaded on your mobile device. As soon as your tickets are scanned in to either theme park, open your app, and tap on the three lines in the lower right corner. Select “My Genie Day” and look for “Get Disney Genie+ for Today.” Now, tap “Get Disney Genie+ Service,” and you’ll be prompted to select which tickets are eligible to add Genie+ for that day. Select the tickets you’d like to add the service to, and you’re all set! 

    Once the transaction is complete, you can go ahead and book your first Lightning Lane attraction. If you have Park Hopper tickets, just keep in mind that you won’t be able to “hop” to the other park until after 1:00 PM. Also, there are currently three attractions not included in Genie+, including Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, and Radiator Springs Racers. These attractions can be purchased as Individual Lightning Lanes, and you can purchase up to two of them per day. 

    Kim, did you know that your purchase of Disney Genie+ also includes unlimited downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos? Look for PhotoPass opportunities on select attractions and at dining locations throughout the Disneyland Resort!

    I hope this information helps you make the most of your visit!  

    See ya’ real soon,
