    If I buy a park hopper ticket do I need a Genie plus purchased for multiple parks for Disneyland and DCA in order to use it or do I just buy genie plus and it works at both?

    Hey there, Austin. Welcome to planDisney and thanks for bringing this question to us. It sounds like you're making plans to have your best Disney day.

    I'm so glad to hear that you are thinking about purchasing a Park Hopper ticket for your visit to the Disneyland Resort. The parks are conveniently located just a few hops away from each other across the esplanade. If you add Disney Genie+ Service to your day, Genie will be at your service to book Lightning Lane selections in both parks. Woohoo!

    There are a couple of ways that you can add Disney Genie+ to your ticket. You can purchase it as an add-on when you make your initial ticket purchase, or if you're feeling undecided, you can purchase the service on the day of your visit. If purchasing on the day of your visit, you will need to have your ticket scanned and have entered the park before you can make your purchase. You will see the option to purchase on the home screen of the Disneyland app. Keep in mind that pricing varies and availability is limited, so arriving at the park early is a good idea.  

    One of my favorite attractions to use Genie+ for is Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! If I ride this first thing in the morning, I usually don't need a cup of coffee right away. It looks like your visit will also fall during Halloween Time, one of my favorite seasons at the Disneyland Resort. Keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog for additional chilling details on the spooky season.

    Austin, I hope this is helpful as you're planning for your magical getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth. Here's to having your best Disney day and getting "one jump ahead" of the crowds!
