    How to get Genie? Can two adults use same genie? I am to purchase (2) 4-day passes for husband and son, and (2) 1 day passes for me. I will join them on the first and last day of trip, as I will be working the other days in between. Please advise

    Hello Grace,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. I bet your family is excited that you'll be able to take some time off from work to spend a few days playing at Walt Disney World. No matter which parks you make reservations to visit, I know you'll head home with magical memories!

    Genie+ is an option that you can add to your park tickets each day of your vacation beginning at midnight. Don't worry, you don't need to be a night owl to take advantage of the service. You can add it any time on the day of your visit. I recommend purchasing it before 7:00 AM, when you'll be able to start booking your Lightning Lane return times. Each person in your party needs to have Genie+ in order to be able to enter Lightning Lanes (shorter queues) for attractions.

    Because you purchase Genie+ daily, it will be fairly simple for you and your family. On day one, you'll purchase it for all 3 of you, on the following days your husband and son can purchase it if they choose. You may find that you don't need to add it for every day. I would definitely recommend it for the days that the 3 of you will be in the parks together, so that you'll be able to share as many experiences as possible together, but you may find the standby wait times are manageable in some of the parks, especially Disney's Animal Kingdom where there are shows and walking trails to enjoy.

    If you haven't already added My Disney Experience App to your mobile device, you'll want to do that soon. This is what you'll use to purchase Genie+ and how you'll book your Lightning Lane return times throughout the day. On the day of your visit you'll see a message that says, "Disney Genie+ Service Purchase for Today." Click on the link and follow the prompts. It takes just moments to add. 

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
