    Hello. We are going to Disney a a couple weeks. My husband is on my friends list, but I cannot co trip him on tickets or if I were to purchase everyone genie and book rides. How do I fix that?

    Hi Demitri,

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney today. We're always eager to help guests make their visits as magical as possible. Let's dive in!

    I'm not sure if you have already purchased theme park tickets for your upcoming visit, but you should have no issue purchasing Disney Genie+ Service and making Lightning Lane selections for your husband and anyone else in your travel party, as long as you are already connected on your Family & Friends list. I recently walked through the steps for another guest, so be sure to review my tips for adding someone to your Family & Friends list and linking tickets to your My Disney Experience Mobile App.

    If you've already completed these steps and are still experiencing technical issues I'd recommend contacting a Cast Member by phone for additional assistance. They should be able to help you troubleshoot and determine why you might be having issues linking or planning with your husband. Keep in mind that you won't be able to purchase Disney Genie+ Service or begin making selections until the date of your visit, with valid admission and theme park reservations. I recommend reviewing the helpful how-to videos before your trip to familiarize yourself with the process.

    Once you get everything squared away, you can purchase Genie+ beginning at midnight on the day of your visit. I usually set an alarm to complete the purchase a little before 7 a.m. when I can begin making Lightning Lane selections. Armed with a cup of coffee and a pixie-dusted to-do list, I'm able to select which members of my travel party I want to include each time I make a selection. If you are a Disney Resorts Collection hotel guest you'll also have the opportunity to purchase Individual Lightning Lanes, up to 2 per day, at 7 a.m. as well. If you are staying off-site you'll be able to purchase those at the official park opening time for your reserved park that day.

    Demitri, if you have additional questions, or if I've misunderstood your inquiry please feel free to write us again. I'm wishing you a magical trip in the coming weeks!

    Magic and memories,
