    How to book Genie+ and ILL with 3x different families on different reservations. We have 9 guests on 3 reservations. Can each family pay for Genie+ separately and still have one person booking all of the rides or do I need to pay for everyone?

    Hey, Ben! Welcome to planDisney.

    I see you're heading to Walt Disney World Resort on December 26. What a "practically perfect" way to overcome those post-Christmas Day blues. The Holiday décor will still be up in the theme parks and hotels. Therefore, you'll be guaranteed an extra dose of festive spirit. 

    It sounds like you have a holly-jolly group too! The more the merrier! If you'd like to make Lightning Lane selections for all nine members of your group, it's super easy. You just need to make sure that everyone in your party is linked through their My Disney Experience account. You basically need to make sure that whoever is making a Lightning Lane selection has everyone on the Family & Friends list.

    To link someone to your Family & Friends list, simply open your My Disney Experience mobile app and tap on the three bars in the bottom right-hand corner. Scroll down and tap on "My Profile." Tap on "My Family & Friends List," then "Add a Guest," and then “Scan Their Linking Code.” It'll then give you instructions for how your friends/family can access their linking code.  Once you scan their code they'll be added to your Friends & Family list.

    Once everyone has been added to each other's "Family & Friends List," you'll then be able to share your plans together. Your party will then be able to make Lightning Lane selections (assuming everyone has Disney Genie+) or purchase Individual Lightning Lanes for one another. And, yes, each family can purchase Disney Genie+ separately and have one person making Lightning Lane selections for the whole group.

    I hope that's informative, Ben. Thanks so much for choosing to be our Guest. Come and see us again if you have any more questions.
