    Hello, We are trying to figure out how genie + works in the disneyland app, but we don't seem to be able to make it function. Do we need to wait until closer to the entrance days to use it? Thank you!

    Welcome to planDisney, Tim!

    It's not long now until you arrive at The Happiest Place on Earth. I bet you're counting down the days. As Walt Disney said, "Disneyland is your land." All the Christmas decorations are on display so everything is merry and bright. I trust you'll have the most wonderful time. 

    Tim, you can purchase Disney Genie+ on a day-to-day basis once you enter the theme park through the Disneyland mobile app. You can't purchase it before your trip (or even before you've entered the gates!). By purchasing this service, you upgrade your park ticket to include "phenomenal cosmic powers," which enable you to select Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions throughout the theme parks. These entrances allow you to skip the regular standby lines and enjoy more attractions on your Disney day.

    Here's how it works: On the day of your visit, once you scan into the theme park and purchase Disney Genie+, you'll be able to make your first Lightning Lane selection. Once you enjoy that attraction, or two hours after making your selection (whatever comes sooner), you can then make another Lightning Lane selection. You can keep doing that throughout the day until there are no more Lightning Lane selections available. My family used Disney Genie+ on our last visit and we were able to experience so many attractions per day. It was awesome! The cost varies depending on the day, but in my opinion, it's worth it.

    To use Disney Genie+, simply open up your Disneyland mobile app and tap on the "Tip Board." You can then select the theme park you're visiting (the default will be Disneyland Park). You'll then get a list of all the attractions. The attractions that are available for a Lightning Lane selection will have a Disney Genie+ box with a return time. If you find a time that works for you, simply tap "Book Experience." You'll then find a list of all the people linked to your account. Simply select the people you want to book this experience for and select "Confirm."

    It's as easy as bibbidi‐bobbidi‐boo, Tim. Thanks for stopping by planDisney. Please come and see us again if you have any more questions.
