    Hello - we bought Genie + with our tickets. Can you give recommendations on how to best minimize our wait times using Genie +? Also, do you know if the Ride Max third party application incorporates Genie+? Thanks

    Hi there, Jason, welcome to planDisney! Your trip is just around the corner and I'm happy to help you get situated with the Genie+ service for your visit to the Disneyland Resort.

    In order to maximize your Genie+ purchase, check out the informational video. Have your phone handy and open the Disneyland app, making sure that you're logged in to your Disney account. Confirm that all of your party members have provided their tickets to you for linking, so you can make attraction reservations together. Tap the 3 bars in the bottom right of the app navigation and then tap "LL - Rides, Shows & Lightning Lane Entry." This will open up the Disney Genie Service Tip Board where you can scroll through available attractions and see standby times. You can switch between parks at the top of the menu, and you can sort the list by showing only the Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane options. Another great feature is the Recommendations for your best Disney day! On your home page of the app, a section should populate that says "Recommendation." Tap "Get Started" and it will go through a series of questions about how you like to spend time at the Disneyland Resort, including attractions, entertainment, and dining experiences. Based on your responses, Disney Genie will create a magical itinerary for your day! You can always switch up plans as you wish, but it is a great way to consider the possibilities for your adventure. I'm sorry I can't speak to the Ride Max third party application from experience. I always recommend utilizing the Genie+ features directly in the Disneyland app for seamless service and support.

    Well, Jason, I hope that helps you and your party get the most magic out of your day when you visit. Lightning Lane for Space Mountain and Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway are my Disneyland Park Favorites. Over at Disney California Adventure Park, hands down Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! and Radiator Springs Racers feed my need for speed! The Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival is a fun way to try new foods and beverages and an opportunity to ride Soarin' Over California while it is available during the festival season.

    Feel free to reach out again if you have any other questions during or after your trip, we're here to help.

    Have a magical visit!
