    My cousin is a Disney employee and letting us in at the gate this Monday 3/6. I’m trying to plan my stay using the sinewy genie so how am I able to do that without a reservation/ticket right now?

    Hello, Brianne,

    Wow! How cool is it to have a cousin who is part of making the magic at the Disneyland Resort? It sounds like you are heading into an amazing experience at The Happiest Place on Earth.

    The first step to unlocking the phenomenal cosmic powers of the Disney Genie service is to link your theme park admission to your account in the Disneyland mobile app. Once you have your theme park ticket linked, you can open “My Genie Day” from the app’s ☰ feature menu and tap the “Get Started” button.

    To make your wishes known to Genie, you will select up to seven attractions you would like to experience (just a starting point!), choose the types of dining destinations you would like to enjoy, and any Enchanting Extras that interest you. To personalize your day, you’ll also let Genie know about some of your favorite types of Disney stories (think princesses, heroes, villains, Pixar, Star Wars, etc.), your top goals for park experiences (choose among fireworks, character experiences, parades, different types of attractions, and more.

    I just went through the process for an upcoming visit of my own. Letting Genie know my wishes took less than two minutes for me. So even if you don’t yet have the talisman to open the Cave of Wonders before you arrive for your visit, you will be able to quickly link your ticket in the app and proceed with customizing your day in no time.

    Tony’s Tip: If possible, I recommend arriving 30-40 minutes before park opening. Around that time, Cast Members at the main entrance usually start allowing Guests to enter the theme park in preparation for the official opening time. While you await the opening time inside the park, you’ll be able to link your ticket to your account in the app, indicate your wishes to Genie, purchase the optional Disney Genie+ add-on service, and even book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane and/or individual Lightning Lane return times. By the time the ropes drop at the park opening, the “My Genie Day” screen will be bursting with magic for you to experience during the remainder of the day.

    Thanks for your question for us here at planDisney, Brianne. If there is anything else we can do to help make your experience at the Disneyland Resort more magical, please come by to visit us again.

    See ya real soon!
