    Does every person in our party have to purchase Genie+ to reserve lightning lane spots?

    Hey there, Kristen. A warm welcome to you from all of us at planDisney. We're so glad you came by to share your question with us and it's my pleasure to help.

    I love to hear that you are planning to make the most of your day with Disney Genie+ Service. Summer is upon us which means the Disneyland Resort is soon to be quite busy and having the phenomenal cosmic powers of Genie on your side certainly won't hurt. 

    Anyone that wishes to summon Genie for access to Lightning Lane entrances will need to add Disney Genie+ Service to their theme park ticket or Magic Key pass for the day. If this describes your entire party, then yes, everyone will need to purchase Disney Genie+ Service. There are a couple of ways to add Disney Genie+ to your ticket, the first being when you make your initial ticket purchase. You will see the option to add Genie+ to your ticket. If you've already purchased your tickets and didn't add on Disney Genie+ Service, you will have the option to purchase on the day of your visit. You will first need to be scanned in and have entered the theme park. Next, you can open the Disneyland app to find the option to purchase right near the top of the home screen. 

    Next, I recommend having everyone link their tickets in the Disneyland app so anyone and everyone in your party is able to make Lightning Lane selections for the entire group and so you're able to secure the same return time for the group. To link tickets, you'll open the Disneyland app and tap on the ☰ to open the menu. Next, tap the tile "Tickets and Passes" followed by the "+" in the top right and then "Link Tickets & Passes." If you're all together in person, I find it's easiest (and quickest) to just scan everyone's ticket barcode.

    Now you're ready to have your best Disney day and start making those Lightning Lane selections. A couple of my can't-miss attractions with Lightning Lane access are Radiator Springs Racers in Disney California Adventure Park and Indiana Jones Adventure in Disneyland Park. And don't forget that you also get unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads from the day too. So don't forget to get that iconic photo in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. I also like to get some evening pictures in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

    Kristen, I hope this is helpful for your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place on Earth. Don't hesitate to come back with any other questions that come to mind. Until then, happy planning!
