    how do i buy genie plus and lightning lane after I have already purchased my tickets?

    Hiya, Haley! Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question. I am so excited to hEAR you will be visiting the Happiest Place on Earth soon! 

    I am excited to tell you more about using Disney Genie+. I just got back from a trip to Disneyland Resort myself! I can share how we managed our party of 10. My daughter and I acted as the “Lead Mouseketeers” for our party, and each of us linked all the tickets within the Disneyland mobile app. In case you need help on how to do that:

    1. Log in to the Disneyland mobile app.
    2. On the home page, click Tickets and Passes. 
    3. Click Link Tickets & Passes, which will allow you to scan the barcode of each ticket for the people in your party.
    4. Once you have all the tickets linked, from the home page, click My Genie Day.
    5. You should see a link that says, “Get Disney Genie+ for Today”. Follow the instructions to purchase Disney Genie+ for Guests in your party. We found it easier for one of us to purchase for the entire party. 

    Please keep in mind you can only purchase Disney Genie+ once you have entered one of the theme parks. I would suggest linking all the tickets in advance, so that once you’re through the gate, you can get to adding Disney Genie+ right away!  

    My daughter and I took turns during the day booking Lightning Lanes for our entire party. It was good to have two of us managing it, in case one of us lost connectivity to the app or hit low battery on our mobile device. The first day we had a learning curve but it became more intuitive the next day. We saved a great deal of time leveraging Lightning Lanes and maximized our time on attractions. 

    It's wonderful you will catch the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort. We love the festive wall-to-wall creeps inside Haunted Mansion Holiday and breezed through to the entrance using the Lightning Lane! If I may, I’ll share our favorite holiday snack from our trip – the Peppermint Beignets at Mint Julep Bar are a must-have. At the Mint Julep Bar, you can illuminate your beverage with a festive Mickey Jingle Bell Glow Cube and take it home as a souvenir.

    I hope this helps. Have a magical trip!
