    I bought my tickets before the arrival of Genie+. Can I add it to my tickets now or do I need to wait until the day of arrival (Disneyland)?

    Hey Allison! We appreciate you stopping by to give us a chance to answer your Disney Genie+ question.

    Currently, Disney Genie+ can be purchased at the time of ticket purchase or once you arrive and are scanned into the park. So in your case, you will need to purchase it once your tickets are scanned at the first park you visit for the day. This is how I've used Disney Genie+ and I have a few tips that may help you summon the Genie.

    Before you arrive make sure your tickets are linked to your Disneyland account. Then make sure you have the Disneyland app downloaded to your phone, sign in, and make sure your reservations and tickets can be seen. 

    My next suggestion is to add a credit card that you will want to use to purchase Disney Genie+ and other mobile purchases. To do this, click the three bars on the bottom right side of the app and then scroll down and select "My Profile" and then "Payment Method". Then you can add multiple cards that you prefer to use during your trip. Now you will be able to purchase Disney Genie+ and make your first Lightning Lanes that much quicker once you enter the park.

    Don't forget that unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads are included in your Disney Genie+ purchase! Whether I'm in the parks with friends or family, I love grabbing PhotoPass photos on attractions and throughout the park for the memory books. You will need to have the PhotoPass photographer scan your code. The quickest way to do this is to tap the + at the bottom menu in the Disneyland app, click "Link PhotoPass Photos", and then click "Show PhotoPass Code". I seem to fumble around a lot when it comes time to show my code, so my tip is to take a screenshot of this. It is easier for me to grab from my photos than from the app and this will save your phone some battery! 

    Allison, thanks again for stopping by planDisney. I can't wait for you to experience the magic of Disney Genie+ and all the Disneyland Resort has to offer.
