    Hi, I’m going to Disney World in January and I’m wanting to buy Genie+ for my visit. In the app, I am part of a party, can I purchase Genie+ just for myself or do I have to purchase it for the whole party?

    Hi Korey, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! 

    If you have your own My Disney Experience mobile app account, you can definitely just purchase Disney Genie+ for yourself! Only if you were a part of the group and someone else was managing your plans (i.e. you didn’t have an account) would they need to book it for you or vice versa.

    After 12 a.m. on the day you’re booking Disney Genie+, you’ll be able to purchase the Service. Just make sure to only select your name when you’re making the purchase. Remember, you'll need a Theme Park Reservation for the park you're hoping to get a Lightning Lane for. Then, at 7:00 a.m. that day you’ll be able to book your first Lightning Lane. Two hours after you book or once you use that Lightning Lane (whichever comes first), you’ll be able to book another. If you’re staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you’ll also be able to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane at 7:00 a.m. If you aren’t staying at one of those hotels, no worries, you can purchase once the Theme Parks are open!

    If the other members of your party are interested in booking Genie+, they can purchase it on their My Disney Experience apps and then when you book yours, you should also see their names since their accounts are linked to you. If you need help with Genie+ in the Parks, definitely connect with the Guest Experience Team, just look for the blue umbrella!

    I hope this “Bit by Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for your trip in the New Year! If you have any other planning or vacation questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
