    Hi. I bought tickets and reservations, but forgot to buy as fast pass. Can I do that at the park?

    Hallo and velkommen, Matthew! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney. You are making a long journey from Norway to Anaheim and I promise it will be worth it, as you’re headed to Happiest Place on Earth! 

    Hakuna Matata, Matthew. You can purchase Disney Genie+ service once you have arrived at the parks! Once you enter through the turnstile, open the Disneyland mobile app, click My Genie Day and you’ll see a link labeled “Get Disney Genie+ for Today.” Simply click that link and you’ll be able to purchase this magic carpet ride for any or all the tickets linked to your account.

    You’ll love the wishes Genie is going to grant you. On my recent visit with my daughters, we were able to continue booking Lightning Lanes throughout our day, well into the evening. Lightning Lanes are the faster queues that you’ll have access to with Genie+ service. There are 19 Lightning Lanes across the two theme parks, in addition to three attractions which have Individual Lightning Lanes available for a la carte purchase. 

    If I may offer a few tips about unlocking the power of Genie+….

    1. You can hold more than one Lightning Lane selection at a time. After you have made one Lightning Lane selection, you can make your next one after that first one has been redeemed, or 120 minutes after booking it, whichever comes first. (I like to set an alarm on my phone to remind me to make my next selection!)

    2. You can only use one Lightning Lane per attraction per day. But you can use the standby queue if you want to experience the attraction again! 

    3. There are three popular attractions with Individual Lightning Lanes, but you can only purchase two Individual Lightning Lanes per day of your visit, so plan accordingly. These are in addition to any regular Lightning Lane selections you are holding. You can be holding two Individual Lightning Lane selections at the same time, if the return time windows aren't in conflict.

    4. Another huge perk is that Genie+ gives you complimentary access to Disney PhotoPass. There are certain attractions where you’ll have photos taken (like Space Mountain and Incredicoaster) which are such fun, candid photos. You’ll also see Disney PhotoPass Photographers taking pics around the parks. Stop and get your photos taken because all of these photos, including the ones from attractions, will be available to you for complimentary download in the app! Extra tip, ask the photographers about Magic Shots – most locations have them. They can make characters or other special effects magically appear in your photos! 

    I am wishing you a magical journey. It’s a whole new world out there, make the most of it! 

    See ya real soon,
