    Attending school field trip today with my child who had his ticket purchased by the school. How can I add genie plus for him since I did not buy his ticket?

    Hiya, Cady! Welcome to planDisney!

    I see that you are already visiting The Most Magical Place On Earth. Let’s get right to answering your question so you can add Disney Genie+ to your child’s theme park admissions and begin taking advantage of booking Lightning Lane entrance return times!

    In order to purchase Genie+ for your ticket, you will need to link the ticket to your My Disney account and since you’re already in the parks, the easiest way to do this would be to download the My Disney Experience app on your phone or your child’s phone. But before you link your ticket(s), you will want to ensure your child is listed on your Family & Friends List. To do so, you will want to follow the steps below in your My Disney Experience app:

    • Open the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device.
    • Click on the menu icon (three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner).
    • Scroll to the Disney Account section and select “Profile”.
    • At the top of the next screen select the “Family & Friends” tab.
    • Click “Add a Guest”.’

    Now that you’ve added your child to your Family & Friends List, you can link his/her ticket to your account.

    • Navigate back to the menu (by tapping the three horizontal line icon) again and select “My Tickets & Passes”. 
    • Tap “My Tickets & Passes.”
    • Select “Link Tickets & Passes,” or if you don’t see that option, click the (+) in the top right corner, then “Link Tickets & Passes.”
    • Choose how you would like to create the link to the ticket: using your phone's camera, tapping, or typing in the ID number of the ticket.

    Once these two things are complete, you can tap on the home icon (little house image) at the bottom left of the app screen. At the top, you will see the option to purchase Disney Genie+ Service for members of your party. If all else fails, you can always head to the nearest Guest Relations or Guest Services location to have a friendly Cast Member assist you with this process. 

    I hope this helps, Cady. I also hope you and your child have a fantastic visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
