    Good morning! We have an upcoming stay at Disney's Old Key West Resort. Does everyone in my planning party have to purchase the same Genie+ and/or Individual Lightning Lane passes or can we all go our own way? Thanks for your help!

    Hi there Kathleen, and welcome to planDisney!

    It's great to see you here again; we love it when our Guests come back to visit! We also appreciate your patience as we assist all those anxious to join in the fun of the 50th-anniversary celebration. It looks like you're almost ready to head to Disney's Old Key West Resort, so let's get going!

    One of my favorite aspects of the new Genie feature on the My Disney Experience Mobile App is its flexibility. Should you purchase Genie+ or make Individual Lightning Lane selections at any time during your vacation, you will have the opportunity to select the members of your party who will enjoy each entitlement and purchase accordingly. You do not need to pay for Genie+ or Individual Lightning Lane selections for your entire party

    I have two little Mouseketeers with different interests, and while my thrill-seeking son must ride Space Mountain to have his best Disney day, the flight is a little too intense for my husband and daughter. To maximize our time together as a family, I could make an Individual Lightning Lane selection for just him and me to experience Space Mountain so the rest of our group wouldn't have to wait for us to go through the standby queue when it's prohibitively long. 

    I hope this is helpful, Kathleen. I know it feels like a whole new world out there with the Genie out of the bottle, but with a little practice, you'll learn to take advantage of this innovative feature. Thanks again for stopping by planDisney, and we'll see ya real soon!
