    Does Genie Plus and Lightning Lane only apply to those guest staying at Disneyland hotels or is that something anyone has access to?

    Hey there Kyle! Welcome to planDisney and thanks for bringing this great question to us. Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ services have brought quite a bit of excitement for Disneyland Resort. I, personally, have always dreamt of having my own genie at my fingertips, and what better way than to have one to help you navigate and plan your day at the parks?!

    You will be thrilled to know that this service is available to ANYONE visiting either of the parks at Disneyland Resort.

    Disney Genie service is complimentary for anyone through the Disneyland app. It will walk you through a series of steps to see what your top picks are for attractions, experiences, and extras. From there with a rub of the lamp, Disney Genie will give you a personalized itinerary and tip board.

    Disney Genie+ service is available for a separate purchase per ticket, per day. If you haven’t purchased your tickets for your trip yet, you should be able to add Disney Genie+ to each ticket and day at check out. If you already have your tickets purchased, no worries! You can still purchase Disney Genie+ for you and your party as soon as you are scanned into the first park of the day. This will allow you to select available Lightning Lane opportunities for select attractions throughout the day. There are a few Lightning Lane attractions that are not included in Disney Genie+ called Individual Lightning Lanes. These are available to purchase a la carte in the app as well (price will vary by date and attraction).

    When my friends ask for my Disneyland tips, the first thing I suggest is for them to download and get used to the Disneyland app. It’s easy to navigate, but there are just so many great features that I want to make sure everyone knows about ahead of time. This will help you get ready to activate your own personal genie when you hit the parks. Since you are thinking about Disney Genie+ and maximizing your time, I think you also will love mobile ordering. This allows you to pick a time and preorder your favorite Disney snacks and meals from many of the locations throughout both parks. When it’s time, you let them know you are there with the click of a button and you can skip the line to grab your bites and enjoy. This really does save us a lot of time in our day and is also great if you have a party that wants to order items from different locations.

    We appreciate the time you took to stop by and visit us here at planDisney. As you continue to plan your epic trip to The Happiest Place on Earth, we will be here to answer any other questions you have too!
