    How do my friends and I buy the genie plus together so we can ride the rides at the same time?

    Hello, Enrique!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for bringing your question regarding Genie+ to us here at planDisney. Your magical journey to the Walt Disney World Resort is just a few months away. Before you know it, you will be enjoying the 50th Anniversary Celebration and EPCOT’s International Food & Wine Festival! Wow! So many experiences are created for you to enjoy as a part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration, like Disney’s Fab 50 Character Collection. You will enjoy these 50 golden sculptures on display in all 4 theme parks. They are perfectly poised for photo ops and selfies. They will even interact with the new MagicBand+ coming out later this year. Your taste buds will thank you for taking them on a trip around the world during EPCOT’s International Food & Wine Festival. Not only will you get to enjoy entrees, desserts, and liquors from the featured countries in the World Showcase, but you will find some additional countries represented with kiosks in EPCOT too. 

    Disney Genie+ is a service that will help you plan your perfect Disney day by saving you from spending extra time in the standby lanes of attractions and allowing you to book a Lightning Lane return time instead. You can only purchase Genie+ in the morning you are planning to use it, as early as midnight. Genie+ can be purchased individually, or someone in the group can purchase it for everyone. Currently, Genie+ is $15 a day, per person, subject to change. 

    Before you and your friends can make your Genie+ selections together, everyone needs to have a valid theme park admission ticket and park pass reservation for each day they plan to visit a theme park. Next, you need to make sure that you are all connected to your My Family & Friends List in My Disney Experience. If you are not connected, now is the time for everyone to send and accept invites from everyone at your party. Once everyone is connected, you will be able to make Genie+ selections together. I would designate someone to make the Genie+ selections at 7:00 AM for the entire group. This will allow all of you to ride together. 

    If you are also planning to make Individual Lightning Lane selections, you can designate another person in the group to book those experiences for you. The Individual Lightning Lanes are for the most popular attractions and have a separate fee, usually $9-$18, but always subject to change, to skip the standby line for that particular attraction. This option can be purchased without adding Genie+. A valid theme park ticket and park pass reservation are still required. Keep in mind that whoever makes the Individual Lightning Lane selection will be paying for the entire group. If you are a Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you can begin making your Individual Lightning Lane selections at 7:00 AM. If you are an offsite Guest, you can make your selection once that theme park has officially opened for the day, providing there is remaining availability. I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and ask us here at planDisney. 

    See ya real soon,
