    Does everyone in my party need to book a genie plus time slot to visit the characters or can just one of the party members use the genie plus time slot and all of us visit the characters?

    Hey there, Dorothy! Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with such a great question!

    Eeeeek! In just days, you'll be embarking on your magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. I know you must be so excited, Dorothy! Since you plan on purchasing and using the Disney Genie+ service on your My Disney Experience app on your adventure, it sounds like your planning already has some punch, pizazz, yahoo and how. Now, all you gotta do is rub that lamp! Let's tie up your loose planning ends and make sure you know how to unlock the phenomenal cosmic powers of Genie+.

    Genie+ is the best way to spend less time waiting in line and more time soaking in the magic. But in order to skip the line, everyone in the party must first tap into the Lightning Lane entrance, even the Lightning Lanes to meet characters. So, for everyone in your party to meet the characters together, each Guest will need to make the same Genie+ Lightning Lane selection.

    Now, if some people in your party want to meet the characters and some don't, your party can absolutely book different selections at the same time and split up for a bit. When traveling with a larger party, I think splitting up is sometimes the best way for everyone to have all of their Walt Disney World Resort wishes come true. (You just can't wish for more wishes!)

    One more tip before you're off on your adventure, Dorothy! After you make a Genie+ Lightning Lane selection, the service will tell you exactly when you can make your next selection near the top of the screen of your Genie+ Tip Board. I suggest setting an alarm on your phone for that time as a reminder to make your next selection. Time flies like a magic carpet when you're having fun and you don't want to forget to make your next Genie+ selection!

    I hope this helps, Dorothy, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable upcoming spring vacation! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have. You ain't never had a friend like planDisney!

    Believe in magic,
