    My family and I are visiting in a month. Can u purchase the genie pass in person,or the day of my visit? Also do children need a genie pass?

    It’s a small world after all, Liliana, and I’m so glad you found your way to planDisney!

    Your summertime visit to the Happiest Place on Earth is almost here… let the countdown begin! I’m happy to report that you can purchase Disney Genie+ Service upon arrival at the Disneyland Resort. Here’s how it works: Since it sounds like you already purchased your theme park tickets, you'll need to wait until you’ve entered Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park to add Genie+ to your tickets by using your Disneyland app. You’ll need to add it each day of your vacation upon entering one of the theme parks. Any Mouseketeers ages 3 and over will need to have Genie+ added to their tickets if you plan to have them utilize the service. Guests ages 2 and under don't require a ticket for admission.

    To help you prepare, I recommend downloading the Disneyland app on your mobile device. As soon as your tickets are scanned in to either theme park, simply open your app and tap on the three lines in the lower right corner. Select “My Genie Day” and look for “Get Disney Genie+ for Today.” Now, tap “Get Disney Genie+ Service,” and you’ll be prompted to select which tickets are eligible to add Genie+ for that day. Select the tickets you’d like to add the service to, and you’re all set! 

    Once the transaction is complete, you can go ahead and book your first Lightning Lane. You’ll be able to choose from about 18 attractions between the two theme parks, if you have Park Hopper tickets. Just keep in mind that you won’t be able to “hop” to the other park until after 1:00 PM. 

    There are currently three attractions not included in Genie+, including Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, and Radiator Springs Racers. These attractions can be purchased separately as Individual Lightning Lanes, and you can purchase up to two of them per day. 

    Last but not least, I’d love to share about my favorite perk of Disney Genie+… did you know that this service also includes unlimited downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos? Keep an eye out for PhotoPass opportunities on select attractions and at dining locations, too. 

    Here’s the Entertainment Schedule for your arrival day, so you can start mapping out your magical plans. I hope you have a blast experiencing the cosmic power of Disney Genie+! I believe it’s the best way to make the most of your Disney day!

    Wishing you magic,
