    I am booking Genie + for a party of 11, what happens if I make a selection for a ride but then a few of the people decide they don't want to ride? Can I edit our LL, or could everyone just scan their magic bands at the start to clear it out? Thanks!

    Hi Nikki, welcome to planDisney!

    You're about to have a magical case of the Mondays as I see your Walt Disney World Resort adventure is set to begin in just two days!! As you put the finishing touches on your suitcase, make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen, a comfortable pair of walking shoes, and gratitude for the Cast Members that are the heart of the 50th Anniversary Celebration. I also recommend leaving some space for souvenEARS. 

    You are smart to consider a Disney Genie+ service for your party of 11. This purchase will give you access to Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions throughout the four theme parks. Genie+ is granting even more wishes this summer as the list of Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions includes Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Frozen Ever After and Remy's Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT, Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom park, and Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park through August 7.  

    You can purchase Disney Genie+ service for up to 12 members of your Family and Friends list with valid admission and a theme park reservation in the My Disney Experience mobile app after midnight each park day (three small lines at the bottom right of the home screen --> "My Genie Day" --> Scroll to purple banner and click "Get Disney Genie+ for Today"). I recommend purchasing by 6:45 a.m. so you're ready to book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m. on the dot. 

    To book your first Genie+ Lighting Lane attraction, access the Tip Board in your My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines --> "Tip Board"). Scroll to your desired attraction (listed alphabetically by park and pre-selected priorities, if applicable) and click the box with "LL Disney Genie+" and the next available arrival time. As part of the selection process, you will be asked to confirm your party. Once confirmed, the Genie+ Lightning Lane reservation will appear under the app's "My Day" tab, which is next to the "Tip Board" tab.

    Honing in on your question, Nikki, it is possible to cancel a Genie+ Lighting Lane reservation for select members of your party. To do this, tap the Genie+ Lightning Lane that you'd like to cancel as it appears under the "My Day" tab in the My Disney Experience app and follow the on-screen prompts. Once you hit cancel, you can remove select members of your party or cancel for everyone. Once canceled, those individuals are eligible to book another Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction.

    You are also welcome to take the non-riding party members' MagicBands along for the proverbial ride. Some attractions have two touchpoints, so it would be important for the non-riders to remove their MagicBands and give them to a riding member of the party. A new Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction can be booked as soon as all ride touchpoints have been cleared. This is the option my family chose on our last trip when Nana and Grandpa didn't want to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  

    I've got one more recommendation for your packing list, Nikki - a portable phone charger. Disney Genie+ service's phenomenal cosmic powers require a phenomenal amount of phone battery. Thanks for reaching out to planDisney. We're hEAR for you before, during, and after your trip.
