    I have existing (UK) Ultimate tickets, bought before genie + was introduced. In advance of my holiday, I would like to add genie + to the tickets for the UK discounted price. I have been told this is possible, but I cannot speak to anyone. Help!

    Hey Howdy hey Amelia and welcome to planDisney!

    Looks like in a few short weeks we are going to have the absolute pleasure of welcoming you to the Most Magical Place on Earth! I love that you are thinking ahead about planning the best way to navigate the parks and attractions and what better way than with your own personal Genie! Genie+ makes navigating the parks so much easier with the ability to book Lightning Lane reservations in advance, this cuts down on your wait times. Amelia, you are correct that you can add Genie+ to your existing tickets so let's talk about how. 

    The first thing you want to do is to open your My Disney Experience Mobile app. From here tap on the three horizontal lines on the bottom right and select "Tickets and Passes". Click on the tickets you would like to purchase Genie+ and then tap "Change Ticket". From there you should see an option to add Genie+ to your tickets in preparation for your upcoming trip. These steps should work very similarly on the website as well. For some reason, if this does not work, you can try to give Disney a ring at 0800 16 90 730 and a Cast Member will be able to help you through this process. You also can purchase Genie+ on the day of your park tickets starting at 7:00 a.m.  

    Just a reminder that you can start making your Lightning Lane attractions starting at 7:00 a.m. on the date of your park admission. Disney has a great list of options per park that you can plan ahead on which attractions you want to prioritize for Lightning Lane selections. Make sure to also check out the Individual Lightning Lane options as well. The very popular attractions in each park, such as Rise of the Resistance in Hollywood Studios, have a separate purchase if you wanted to make sure you experienced these attractions. 

    Have fun in the final weeks of preparation and I hope you and your party have a great time full of Magical memories! 

    Have a Magical Day,
