    Hello! I am going to Disneyland in a couple of weeks and had a question regarding Genie+. I want to add it to my ticket, however, do I have to add it the day of my reservation? Or can I add Genie+ before the day I am attending Disneyland?

    Hey there, Brianna! Welcome back to planDisney. Thanks for bringing us another great question! 

    How exciting that you’ll be at the Happiest Place on Earth very soon! If you didn’t add Disney Genie+ service to your tickets at time of purchase, no worries – you can still do so, but you’ll need to wait until you have entered the parks. As soon as you enter through the turnstile, keep your mobile phone handy so you can open the Disneyland mobile app, go to My Genie Day, My Day, and click the link to add Genie+ to your day! 

    Once you are in the parks you can make your first Lightning Lane selection. Can I share a few more tips about using Genie+ at Disneyland Resort? 

    ~ With Genie+, you will have access to Lightning Lanes for 19 attractions across the two parks. You can select one Lightning Lane per attraction per day. For example, you can use the Lightning Lane for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad only once in a day, but you could opt to use the standby queue if you want to ride it again.

    ~ There are three attractions not included in Genie+ - these have Individual Lightning Lanes you can purchase ‘a la carte’ per ride, with or without Genie+. These Individual Lightning Lanes can be purchased for up to two different attractions each day.

    ~ The easiest way to find available Lightning Lane windows is in the Disneyland mobile app under the Tip Board. As you scroll down, for the attractions that have Lightning Lanes, you'll see "LL Disney Genie+" with a link to "Book Experience."

    ~ You can make your next selection right after your current selection has been redeemed. And, if it’s been more than 120 minutes from the time you made the selection, even if your current selection’s arrival window hasn’t started, you can make a new selection! Example: at 8:00 a.m. you made a Lightning Lane selection for Incredicoaster, for which the arrival window starts at 12:00 p.m.. At 10:00 a.m., you can make another Lightning Lane selection, even though you haven’t redeemed your Incredicoaster Lightning Lane yet. 

    ~ Only at Disneyland Resort, Genie+ gives you complimentary access to Disney PhotoPass for the day. This is a huge benefit for me, as I love capturing photos throughout the parks. When you link attraction photos as well as those taken by Disney PhotoPass Photographers, you’ll have access to unlimited digital downloads for the day. Be sure to ask the photographer about taking a Magic Shot which includes special effects or character surprises - they are so fun! I was there last week with my mom and sister and we captured a handful of very creative and memorable Magic Shots.

    Wishing you a magic carpet ride full of adventure, Brianna!
