    How do I buy the genie for my visit AND my son and family’s genie?

    Hiya Fran - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question for our team of panelists! It looks like your vacation is just a few short weeks away - how exciting! If you didn't already know, you're visiting at an extra magical time. There will be EARidescent pixie dust sprinkled everywhere as part of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration - including new and exciting attractions and entertainment, food, and so much more.

    Disney Genie is a new complimentary service available within the My Disney Experience Mobile App which helps Guests intelligently plan their day. Based on your preferences, interests, location, and more, Genie will recommend attractions, activities, and even great spots to grab a bite to eat! Genie+ is an optional add-on to any theme park ticket which helps reduce your wait at many of your favorite attractions through Lightning Lane access.

    Genie+ can be added to multi-day theme park tickets at the time of purchase, which is a convenient option for many Guests. If you still need to add Genie+ to tickets you've already purchased, you can do so right within the app each day you would like to use it! You can make your first Lightning Lane selection starting at 7 a.m. (and I recommend you do), so you'll want to purchase Genie+ before that. If you're a night owl you can even do it after Midnight before you head to bed!

    To purchase Genie+ for yourself and the rest of your family, you need to ensure that everyone is linked to your Friends & Family list. Then, on the day you want to purchase Genie+ you'll simply navigate to My Day in the app, either directly from the home screen, or by tapping the menu icon in the lower right corner and then tapping My Genie Day. From there, swipe down a bit and tap the purple bar that says Get Disney Genie+ for Today. You will be able to select each person who needs Genie+ for that day and can then make your purchase using your preferred form of payment.

    I hope this information is helpful as you continue planning - I'm so excited about your trip! Please let me know if any other questions pop up!
