    buy genie plus?

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there Ken Max!

    I'm so glad you brought your curiosity for the Disney Genie+ service here to planDisney. I see that your trip may have already passed, but purchasing Disney Genie+ through the Disneyland Mobile App for any visit to the Disneyland Resort truly is a question that any guest must ponder. So I invite you to slide down that rabbit hole with me now!

    Disney Genie+ can save you and the guests in your party a lot of time that most guests spend waiting in lines if used repeatedly and steadily. Since I am most often visiting the Disneyland park with my tiny Tigger in tow, we spend most of our time in Fantasyland, where there are very few opportunities to use Disney Genie Service. Because of that, I never considered adding this service to my visit with my youngling.

    When my husband and I spend date nights at the resort, we love to taste the seasonal offerings, watch the spectacular parades and shows, and enjoy together time in line at attractions that feel sentimental to us, like Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion. Our focus at these times is not to get on as many rides as possible, so Disney Genie+ doesn't usually align with our goals.

    However, last month, I enjoyed several days with many of my adult friends for the first time in forever! Some of them had never visited our resort here in California, so by giving us access to Lightening Lanes and unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads throughout our stay, we frequently used the Disney Genie+ to its fullest potential. I can honestly say that during that visit there were several times that I wondered how any guest could survive without this service!

    So Ken, if your overall focus is to ride as many attractions as possible during your stay, then the Disney Genie+ service is worth it. Just remember that two popular rides, Radiator Springs Racers and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, are not included with the Disney Genie+ and require an Individual Lightening Lane purchase if you still want to skip the standby queue.

    I hope these tips help you make all your future plans feel Fun and Fancy Free! If you have any follow-up questions, you are welcome to write back to me directly now that you've got a friend in me!
