    How to get genie plus added to our trip

    Hi Estrella,

    Thank you so much for visiting planDisney with your Walt Disney World planning question. I am excited to help you plan your magical vacation!

    In order to add Disney Genie+ Service to your Walt Disney World plans, you first need to be sure that you have a theme park ticket and a park reservation for the date that you are planning to visit. Then, Disney Genie+ Service can be added on the day that you plan to visit the theme park, so no need to worry about doing it ahead of time!

    You will first need to access your My Disney Experience mobile app. I just pulled up the My Disney Experience mobile app for myself, and the option to purchase Disney Genie+ Service currently appears as one of the top banners on the home page. You can also go to the main menu from this page and click on "My Disney Genie Day," which will guide you through steps to purchase Disney Genie+ Service.

    You can also reference these step-by-step instructions for adding Disney Genie+ Service to your vacation online. There are further detailed instructions on this page about Disney Genie+ Service and Lightening Lane.

    Once you have purchased Disney Genie+ Service, you can begin to make selections for Lightening Lane entry at 7:00 a.m. While it can be tempting to purchase Disney Genie+ Service at 12:01 a.m. the day that you want to use it, and you certainly can do that if you stay up late at night, I have not found a need to do this. As an early riser, I wake up a little before the 7:00 a.m. mark, purchase Disney Genie+ Service while enjoying my first cup of coffee, and then I am ready to go to make my first Lightening Lane selection at 7:00 a.m.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Estrella! Please do come back and visit planDisney if you have any further questions in planning your magical vacation.
