    Arriving 1/8/2022 at Disneyworld.We have 16 people in our group. How do we navigate genie + with a large group? When can Genie+ be purchased? Can this be prior to scheduled arrival in the park?

    Hi Bert! Welcome to planDisney and thanks so much for asking this question! I'm so excited to hear that you and your group will be arriving at Walt Disney World Resort in less than one week! My multi-generational family of nine just visited last week and we used Genie+ every day that we were in the theme parks. I'm happy to help you navigate using it!

    Each person in your group will need to have a theme park ticket and a theme park reservation in order to add Genie+ to their ticket. I would also recommend creating a Family & Friends List to ensure that everyone is connected as you make plans and reservations.

    If you would like to add Disney Genie+ for your travel party before your arrival, you can do this for the entire duration of your vacation. First, you will need to visit the Walt Disney World Website and sign in to your account. At the top right of the menu, click on My Disney Experience. From this menu, select "My Plans" and then scroll down to "Tickets & Memory Maker". Select "Change Ticket" next to the ticket you wish to modify. Then, click on “Choose Which Tickets to Change,” and select every ticket in your party that you want to modify. Next, you can add Disney Genie+ service to your tickets. Please note that Disney Genie+ service will not be available until 7:00 A.M. on the day of your theme park visit.

    If you prefer, you can add Disney Genie+ service for single-day use without modifying a ticket, using the My Disney Experience app. Our family chose to add it each morning before leaving for the theme park. We were able to make our first selection at 7:00 A.M., which was before we even left our hotel room! When traveling with a large group, I would suggest finding out ahead of time what attractions are on their must-do list. It's important to grant everyone's wishes, just like Genie himself would!

    I know your vacation will be extra magical with The World's Most Magical Celebration going on right now! Our family especially enjoyed eating and drinking our way around World Showcase at EPCOT and ending the day watching Harmonious, a new nighttime spectacular show that includes beautiful fireworks and music!

    Please feel free to ask any other questions you might have! Wishing you and your group a magical vacation!

    Happy Planning!
