    I have 7 family members. If I want to purchase Genie+ for all of them how can I do this? Will all 7 names show even though I've emailed them to share our plans? I went into Genie+ to purchase just as an example and it only showed 3 names not 7

    Hiya Mike!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thanks for bringing your question our way. 

    I love heading to The Most Magical Place on Earth with my family of 8! We know when we're all together, we're sure to have days full of laughter, and being that we're at Walt Disney World Resort, it will also be full of magic! I'm thrilled you'll be visiting with your family of seven! 

    Mike, if you and your family members have a My Disney Experience account, you must be connected to plan together through your Family & Friends List. Guests can purchase Disney Genie+ on the day of their visit, beginning at midnight. Thus, when you're eligible to purchase Disney Genie+, you can select your entire party to make the purchase and Disney Genie+ selections together. 

    Let's make sure your family is connected through your Family & Friends List so that you can plan together. You mentioned you sent everyone invitations through the Family & Friends List so they could all plan with you; once they accept your invitation, you should all be connected. To check your connected Family & Friends List, please open your My Disney Experience Mobile App, tap on the three horizontal lines on the bottom right, and scroll down to select My Profile. Next to My Profile, you should see Family & Friends List and tap on it. This should display all the members of your party you've successfully connected with. 

    I spoke to a Cast Member for you and was told if your family has accepted your invitations and you're still not seeing them in your Family & Friends List, please call My Disney Experience, MagicBand, and MagicBand+, and a friendly Cast Member will be happy to help you. 

    When the day of your visit comes, beginning at midnight, you will be able to purchase Disney Genie+. If you'd rather not stay up late, no worries. Because Guests can make their first Disney Genie+ selection at 7 AM, I like to purchase Disney Genie+ around 6:45 AM for my family and me, and then I get ready to make our first attraction selection at 7. 

    To book your Disney Genie+ selections, you will want to follow these steps:

    -Open up your My Disney Experience Mobile App
    -Tap on the three horizontal lines on the bottom right of the screen, then select Tip Board
    -If you still need to purchase Disney Genie+, you can choose to purchase the service here and select everyone in your party you'd like to make the purchase for. 
    -Once you have done so, head back to Tip Board. You can change the theme park towards the top of the screen and then scroll to locate the attraction you want to reserve for your party. 
    -Once you choose Book Experience under the Disney Genie+ option, it will have you confirm your entire party or select members of your party. 
    -After following the prompts and finalizing your selection, you're all set! 

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Mike!
