    I am confused about the Genie and Lighting passes. Are they required for all rides or just some? If just for some, which ones? How far in advance can I purchase the genie or lightning passes? Can we stand in line for rides like we used to in the past?

    Salaam and good morning, Nicole! Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for stopping by with your questions. The phenomenal cosmic power of Disney Genie+ is just one of my favorite treasures at the Disneyland Resort

    Luckily the powers of the evil Jafar have not interfered with the magic of Disney Genie+, as he is still stuck beneath the Arabian desert sands in an itty-bitty living space. Nicole, there are two points in time where you can purchase the service. Disney Genie+ can be added during your ticket purchase, or if you already have your tickets, you’ll be able to add it as soon as you have entered the theme park. You’ll want to ensure your tickets are already linked to your account and that you have the Disneyland mobile app downloaded. As soon as you’re through the turnstile, you can open the app, go to “My Genie Day” and you’ll see a link to purchase the Disney Genie+ service. You can purchase it for all the tickets linked to your account. 

    The Disney Genie+ service brings you to a whole new world. It includes Lightning Lanes for nearly 20 attractions at the theme parks; you’ll find the complete list here. There are three attractions that are currently not included in the Disney Genie+ Lightning Lanes; those attractions have Individual Lightning Lanes which can be purchased separately. These attractions are Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Radiator Springs Racers and WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure.

    I think you are going to treasure the time saved using the Lightning Lanes. But if you feel that Disney Genie+ isn’t for you, please don’t worry, the royal Sultan has declared that the standby queues are still in effect.  

    One more powerful feature I love about the Disney Genie+ service is that Disney PhotoPass is included. You can access unlimited digital downloads from your day. This is the best way I have found to get our entire family in one snap, and that too in high-resolution. 

    All you gotta do is rub that lamp, Nicole. Enjoy your magic carpet ride!
