    I bought a Disneyland Cosco package and forgot to get genie+ for the park tickets…I don’t get access to the etickets until 4 days before my stay in July. Can I just add genie+ to my park tickets once I link them into the Disneyland app after I get access?

    Hi there, Sergio! I'm so glad you came to us with your question!

    It's great that you have a Disneyland Resort package all set for this summer. A little magic to look forward to! While you will not receive your actual tickets until four days ahead of your arrival, you can go ahead and link your package to your account with the confirmation number provided. This will allow you to make theme park reservations well ahead of time for your dates. As part of the return to the magic, all Guests need both a theme park ticket and a theme park reservation to enter the parks. The reservations help Mickey and Minnie keep track of how many people to expect in the park each day. Once your package is linked, the system should recognize that you have purchased tickets and allow you to make reservations if you are within 120 days of your trip. Reservations are subject to availability, so it's always wise to make them early even if they need to be canceled or rescheduled down the line. You can always take a peek at the current calendar to see availability. Just be sure to toggle to the ticket type that you are holding. 

    You are going to love exploring all that Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park have to offer! If you have already purchased your tickets, you can add Genie+ as soon as you scan into the parks on each day of your visit within the Disneyland Mobile App. You'll be harnessing that cosmic superpower faster than you can say Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo! Just open up the app and tap the "+" in the bottom navigation bar. Select "View My Genie Day and Tip Board" and toggle to the "My Day" tab. Here, you will see a purple box that says "Take Today to the Next Level". Tap in here and you will be able to purchase Genie+ for each Guest that you are linked to for that day. As soon as the purchase is confirmed, you can start making those Lightning Lane selections by toggling over to the "Tip Board" tab. You can make your next selection either two hours after you've made the current selection or after you tap into the current Lightning Lane attraction. Get ready to hop on your magic carpet and zip zoom through the parks! 

    Sergio, did you know that your Genie+ upgrade also comes with the added perk of access to unlimited digital downloads of all the Disney PhotoPass photos taken that day? It's truly one of the best ways to help make those memories last forever. You will surely stumble across many PhotoPass photographers as you make your way through the parks, but you can also take a look at their locations ahead of time in the app. When you open the home screen and tap the pin point icon, select the drop down menu at the top and choose PhotoPass. Don't forget to ask for a Magic Shot for a little extra pixie dust!

    I hope this was helpful in your planning! We are all EARS the next time you have a question here at planDisney
