    When booking Genie+ for a large group are you at a disadvantage to book rides? For example, does a single rider booking on Genie+ get more options than someone booking for a group of 10? Or are all ride bookings treated equally regardless of party size?

    Welcome to planDisney, Christopher! Thanks so much for coming to us with your question today.

    I have spent lots of time at Walt Disney World Resort with groups of all different sizes, from just me and my husband all the way up to big parties of more than 20 people. In my experience, the size of your group does not really affect your likelihood of being able to book a Lightning Lane return time using Disney Genie+ service. The My Disney Experience app will simply show you the next available time for a party of your size! Speaking of My Disney Experience, having your entire group linked up in the Family & Friends List is crucial to making sure that booking Lightning Lane return times goes smoothly, and I recommend double-checking that list this week before you head out on your trip. 

    Christopher, there are two group size limitations that I want to make you aware of for your upcoming trip. Disney Genie+ service will allow you to book a Lightning Lane return time for a group of up to 12 people but, if you're entering the Virtual Queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, there is a maximum group size of 10 people. Keep this information in mind if you're traveling with a group larger than 10 people since you will want to split up your party and designate at least two people with the job of joining the Virtual Queue when it opens. 

    I hope this answers your question, Christopher, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
