    Hi, going to disneyland with grandparents who dont have a smart phone to use disney genie do i have to purchase the feature for them so were all on one reservation?

    Hi there, Sierra!

    Hooray! A getaway with the grandparents sounds great! I’m glad you are planning on using the complimentary Disney Genie service as well as the Disney Genie+ service. They will help make your experience even more magical.

    As long as at least one person in your party has access to a mobile device with the latest version of the Disneyland mobile app, you may all take advantage of everything the Disney Genie service and the Disney Genie+ service have to offer. Whether your tickets are all purchased together or separately, they can all be linked to the account that will be used on your mobile device. Each Guest must have both valid theme park admission and a theme park reservation to the same park to participate in Lightning Lane access together. 

    If you don’t happen to have Genie+ included already with your tickets, no worries. You may purchase Genie+ one day at a time after you have used your tickets to scan into a theme park. To book a Lightning Lane return time, each participating Guest must have already entered a theme park for the day. Visit the Tip Board in the app and search for the attraction you wish to experience. If the available return time indicated matches your plans, tap the “LL” Lightning Lane box to proceed. Next, select the eligible tickets for which you wish to book the return time and confirm your selection. If the attraction is associated with Genie+ and you have not yet purchased that service for the selected tickets, you will be prompted to purchase it at that time. During the process of booking for individual Lightning Lanes attractions that are not included with Genie+, you will be prompted for a payment option as well. A major credit or debit card, Disney Gift Card, or Apple Pay (for Apple iPhone and iPad devices) are accepted forms of payment.

    I hope you and your grandparents have a magical time, Sierra!
