    If I 'purchase' Genie+ everyone in my friends/family group at one time, will I have to pay the fee for them all or will each person's charge go to their own MDE account? What about for ILL purchases?

    Hi Landon! Thank you for reaching out to planDisney!

    Disney Genie+ is such a great way to maximize your time in the parks. It gives you access to a shorter wait for over 40 different attractions across the resort. And then there are the Individual Lightning Lanes which will give you access to a shorter wait for some of the most popular attractions! These two services are such time savers and my preferred way to experience attractions.

    If you purchase Individual Lightning Lanes and/or Disney Genie+ through the My Disney Experience mobile app, your payment method will be charged for each Guest you are selecting. If you would like each Guest to be charged for the service on their own account, they would need to purchase these services themselves.

    Once each Guest purchases Disney Genie+, as long as everyone is connected to you, has a valid theme park ticket, and a Theme Park reservation, you would be able to book experiences for them. However, I would only recommend this option for Disney Genie+. When it comes to Individual Lightning Lanes, because they can sell out so fast, I would recommend that one person purchases them for the group and then they can pay you back. I say this because if you all do it separately, there isn't a guarantee that you will all be able to ride at the same time. Times may sell out.

    Landon, no matter what you choose, you are bound to have a great trip! Please remember that Disney Genie+ goes on sale after 12 a.m. midnight EST each day. While you don't have to purchase at that time, please do so before 7 a.m. as that is when you can book your first Lightning Lane reservation. It's also important to note that Disney Genie+ can sell out on busy days.

    Individual Lightning Lanes can be booked at 7 a.m. for Guests staying at Disney Resort Collection Hotels or when the park opens for all other Guests. You can book two of these each day of your trip if you'd like.

    Be sure to experience TRON / Lightcycle Run at Magic Kingdom Park when you are at the resort. It opens on April 4, 2023, and I can tell you from experience, it is an amazing attraction! You can either purchase an Individual Lightning Lane to experience this attraction or join the Virtual Queue. Or, if you're like me, do both so you can ride twice in one day!

    Reach out again in the future if you have any further questions!
