    I don’t see the “get genie+ for today” button. I’m trying to add it to my existing day April 20th

    Good day, Genevieve! Thanks for swinging by planDisney with your question. Oh boy, your magic carpet ride is just a couple of sleeps away and I bet you can’t wait.

    Your best friend Genie will be ready to come out of his itty-bitty living space and grant you wishes once you arrive at the parks. You won’t be able to release him from the lamp until you have walked through the turnstile. Keep your mobile phone handy, and once you have entered, open the app, click My Genie Day, go to My Day, and you should see the link to “Get Disney Genie+ for Today.” This will let you purchase the option for any tickets linked to your account. After you have added Genie+ to your day, you can go to the Tip Board and make your first Lightning Lane selection

    For future reference, you can add Disney Genie+ to your tickets at time of purchase. There is one difference though - if you purchase Genie+ with your ticket, you’re purchasing it for every day of your multi-day ticket. If you wait to purchase it at the parks, you can add it on each individual day that you wish. 

    While we’re talking about Genie+, let me share a few tips that might help you. 

    1. You can hold more than one Lightning Lane selection at a time! After you have made one Lightning Lane selection, you can make your next one after that first one has been redeemed, or 120 minutes after booking it, whichever comes first. (I like to set an alarm on my phone to remind me to make my next selection!) For example, if you book Space Mountain at 8:30 a.m. for a 12:00 p.m. return time, then at 10:30 a.m. you can book another Lightning Lane, even though you have not redeemed Space Mountain yet. 

    2. You can only use one Lightning Lane per attraction per day. But you can use the standby queue if you want to experience the attraction multiple times.

    3. There are three popular attractions across the two parks with Individual Lightning Lanes, but you can only purchase two Individual Lightning Lanes per day of your visit, so you’ll want to plan accordingly if only visiting one day.

    4. A bonus perk - Genie+ gives you complimentary access to Disney PhotoPass. My family loves taking funny, goofy pictures together! The attraction photos give us a great laugh too. You’ll be able to download all of these at no additional charge. Extra tip, ask the photographers about Magic Shots, most locations have them. They can make characters or other special effects magically appear in your photos! 

    Wishing you a magic carpet ride full of adventure, Genevieve. Enjoy the indescribable feeling!
