    How early can I set up the Genie+ activities? We have park tickets for about a week away for three days.

    Hi there, Jane,

    Get ready to unlock the “phenomenal cosmic powers” that live in the “itty bitty living space” of your own mobile device. There are two related services that can be found in the Disneyland mobile app. For an additional fee, the Disney Genie+ service can be added to each of your tickets and can be used after you activate your theme park tickets as you enter the parks each day of your visit. The complimentary Disney Genie service can be set up before your visit for each day you have booked theme park reservations.

    The Disney Genie+ service can be accessed as soon as you enter a Disneyland Resort theme park. If you pre-purchased Genie+ with your park tickets, you rub that magic lamp as soon as your tickets are scanned at the park entrance turnstiles. If you have not yet purchased Genie+, you may do so once inside the park by tapping the Disney Genie+ Service purchase link on the home screen of the Disneyland mobile app. From that point, you may begin booking Lightning Lane return times, get Disney PhotoPass photos, enjoy the magic of Disney PhotoPass Lenses, and listen to AudioTales.

    Disney Genie is a complimentary service included with every ticket. During your visit to the Disneyland Resort, Genie helps to maximize the magic by providing recommendations for attractions, dining, and entertainment. These recommendations, which will be found on the “My Genie Day” screen of the mobile app, are based on your preferences and are optimized to help you make the most of your visit. You can tell Genie your preferences before you visit the parks by tapping the “Get Started” button on the “My Day” screen. Make your wishes known by selecting your top choices for attractions, entertainment, dining, and more. You can give Genie more hints about your favorite types of experiences or goals for the day as well. The magic begins at 7:00 AM on the day of your visit. That’s when Genie will populate a custom itinerary for you. And don’t worry if a recommendation isn’t right for you or if you’d like to consider it later. You can give Genie feedback and it will continually update recommendations throughout the day. Check out these short videos for more information on how to use the Disney Genie service.

    I hope your visit to the Disneyland Resort is as memorable as can be, Jane. As Genie said to Aladdin, "Let's make some magic!"
