    Do I have to buy Genie + for everyone in my planning party. My Dad has DAS and will not be riding the more thrilling rides, but I’d like to do Genie + for the two of us who want to ride attractions that he won’t be riding.

    Welcome to planDisney, Wendy!

    I'm so glad you chose to be our Guest. It's not long now until your magical trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. Did you know that the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts will be taking place during your visit? If you're a foodie, you must try some of the culinary masterpieces available at the Food Studios. These dishes taste as good as they look! Additionally, If you visit the America Gardens Theatre from 12:30 PM to 1:00 PM, you can participate in the Animation Academy sessions and learn how to draw Disney characters. There's also music, shows, and fun for the kids! It's a wonderful festival that I know you'll enjoy.

    Wendy, you'll be pleased to know that you don't need to purchase Disney Genie+ for the entire group, especially if your dad has the Disability Access Service (DAS) and isn't planning on going on the more intense thrill rides. You only need it for the people who are planning on accessing the Lightning Lane entrances. You'll have to purchase Disney Genie+ for the two of you on a day-to-day basis. Here's how you do it:

    Open up the My Disney Experience Mobile App, and on the home screen you should find something in purple that says, "Disney Genie+ - Add even more magic to your visit." Tap "Purchase for Today" and you'll be taken to a list of all the people in your party that you've added via My Friends & Family. You will want to select the two members of your party that will use this service. Once you do that, you'll then make your purchase.

    I hope that's helpful, Wendy. I trust you and your family will have a tigger-ific time! Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney. TTFN, ta-ta for now.
