    How do I use Genie Plus if I have all park tickets linked to one phone - but not all magic bands in the group linked to that phone??

    Hiya Pat!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for bringing a great question to us today! Planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort can be a lot of fun, but sometimes the details are a little overwhelming if you're trying to manage a large group. I'd be happy to try and help you understand how to use Genie+ with your party and how the MagicBand+ can enhance your visit!

    Let's tackle Genie+ first. I would recommend that everyone in your party download the Disneyland Mobile App onto their device. If there is one phone that has all the tickets linked to that account, it will be most convenient to use that particular phone to book Lightning Lanes for everyone. Once everyone in your party has purchased Genie+, you can use that phone to book Lightning Lanes for those who are interested in experiencing that attraction. You will have a chance to Select Your Party where you may omit or include certain members or Select All (who are eligible). It's fairly simple and intuitive once you actually use the system and get used to it. I'm sure you'll learn to manage your group and their preferences in no time!

    Okay, so moving on to MagicBand+. It's important to realize that each MagicBand+ may only be linked to one account and one ticket at a time. Just as long as the MagicBand+ is linked to its appropriate ticket, it will correctly register back to that ticket-holder. It doesn't matter which phone to which the MagicBand+ is linked. For instance, if you were to book a Lightning Lane for everyone with your phone, guests in your party would still be able to redeem that Lightning Lane with their MagicBand+ even though it might be linked to their own phone. It just matters that it's linked to the correct ticket. 

    I hope that made sense for you, Pat. Trust me, it sounds much more complicated than it actually is! If everyone follows these setup instructions for their MagicBand+, you'll all enjoy a much more convenient visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! And don't forget that Disney PhotoPass picture downloads are included with Genie+, so have those PhotoPass photographers snap away to capture your magical visit! If you have any further questions or need more clarification, please visit us again anytime. You're always welcome at planDisney!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
