    I have a family of three going to Disney in November, my question is do I need to purchase the genie plus service for each member individually or if by purchasing once can we all use the same one?

    Hi Lerins!

    I bet you are getting excited about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World in November! I enjoy visiting in November because the weather is mild, EPCOT's International Food and Wine Festival is underway and the parks are decked with holiday decorations.

    You are going to love the Disney Genie+! This new feature is built into the My Disney Experience app and has a plethora of benefits, including a personalized daily itinerary, the ability to use Lightning Lane entrances for select attractions, a custom tip board, and a map of the park. 

    You will need to purchase Disney Genie+ for all guests in your party who want to use Lightning Lane entrances. Disney Genie+ is not purchased by party, but rather by person. Each individual will need a Walt Disney World theme park admission ticket, park pass reservation, and Disney Genie+ or an individual Lightning Lane entrance to use the Lightning Lane queue. 

    I want to make sure to differentiate between the free Disney Genie service and the paid Genie+ services. Disney Genie includes a tip board, interactive maps, and personalized itinerary. This is a part of the My Disney Experience app and everyone in your party can use this to find wait times, recommendations, and more. The paid Disney Genie+ service gives you priority access to select attractions using the Lightning Lane entrances. You can also purchase individual Lightning Lane entrances for select attractions, such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom or Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Similar to Genie+, each guest will need to purchase Lightning Lane and make a reservation to use the Lightning Lane entrance.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
