    Hello! I’m curious if I book my hotel/tickets at the same time but want to wait to add Genie+ later, do I have to wait until I am In the parks or can I add anytime? I notice It doesn’t let me choose only certain members of my party, only everyone. Thanks!

    Hi there Lindsey, thank you for stopping by planDisney with your great question!  

    I love that you're considering purchasing Disney Genie+ Service, we do purchase it each time we visit.  Since we're not local to the parks, we have to maximize our time when we visit, and we save so much time with having access to the Lightning Lane entrances and shorter wait times.  Also having access to unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads from each day we purchase the service is a huge bonus!  

    If you opt to not purchase Disney Genie+ Service in advance, then you would have to wait to purchase it until after you have scanned into the parks for the day.  I prefer to purchase it in advance, and then I'm ready to go and can start booking Lightning Lane selections as soon as we enter the parks!  I highly recommend adding it prior to your visit when you purchase your tickets if you can, it is one less thing to think about the day of.  

    A tip that I like to share when using Disney Genie+ Service is that I set an alarm on my mobile phone when it's time to book our next Lightning Lane selection.  That way I'm truly getting the most out of it, and we can ride as many attractions as we possibly can!  

    I hope this information is helpful for your upcoming trip Lindsey!  If we can help with any other questions you may have, please do not hesitate to come back and ask!

    Have a magical day,
