    We will buy our tickets through Sam's Club they offer Genie+ at time of purchase. I know purchasing a ticket through Disney you have to add it on daily. How would we activate our genie+ since we already paid?

    Hey there Cassandra,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for your question! It sounds like you're in the midst of planning a fun trip to the Disneyland Resort later this year - how exciting!

    You can add the Disney Genie+ Service to your ticket whether you purchase through the Disneyland Resort website or a third party! In fact, I just bought tickets through the Disneyland Resort website two days ago for an upcoming trip and added the Disney Genie+ Service to our tickets. Currently, you can only add this service during the ticket purchase process or after you have scanned your ticket on the first day of your visit.

    I'm a huge fan of the Disney Genie+ Service. The access to Lightning Lanes is the clear draw for me and my family, but we also love that you get unlimited digital downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos! We usually make it a point to stop at as many photographers as possible during our trip so we can have really great pictures of the whole family by the end of our visit.

    Whether you purchase Disney Genie+ Service with your theme park tickets from the Disneyland Resort website or a third party, it should automatically activate once you've scanned your ticket at an entry turnstile on the first day of your visit. However, I would recommend reading all the terms & conditions if you purchase through a third party to make sure there are no additional activation steps or blockout dates.

    Thanks again for your question, Cassandra! I hope you have a fantastic visit to the Happiest Place on Earth.

    Have a Magical Day,
