    I'm going with friends and one person is going to be the designated planner for Genie+. Can we all purchase separately on our apps so the charge goes to our credit card and as long as we are all connected the designated person can book rides? Thanks!

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Matthew!

    Thanks for stopping by with a fantastic Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! Oh boy... it sounds like you'll be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth with friends very soon. The only thing better than a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is sharing it with wonderful people! I'd be happy to help your cast of characters prepare for a thrilling theme park day.

    Matthew, with Disney Genie+ service, you and your pals will be able to access attractions and experiences via their Lightning Lane entrances, bypassing the standby queues! Guests may purchase this service beginning on the day of their visit to a theme park and may make their first Lightning Lane entry selection starting at 7:00 a.m. that day. Matthew, your group is welcome to purchase the service separately, if you'd prefer. You'll want to be sure that everyone has the most updated version of the My Disney Experience mobile app downloaded and has theme park admission (and theme park reservations, required through January 8, 2024) appropriately linked to their accounts before attempting to purchase Disney Genie+ service. Alternatively, you may designate one individual as the purchaser, and then transfer funds to that person after the purchase is made. (That's what my travel party usually does, for the sake of convenience!)

    Before 7:00 a.m. on the day of your visit, make sure that all members of your travel party are connected via your Family & Friends Lists in My Disney Experience. Once linked, one member of the group should be able to make Lightning Lane entry selections on behalf of the entire party. Matthew, remember that not all attractions and experiences are eligible for selection via Disney Genie+ service. At this time, the most popular offerings in each theme park are available either via virtual queue or individual Lightning Lane entry selection.

    Matthew, I hope you've found these suggestions helpful as you gear up for an unforgettable day with your best pals! If you have any other questions before or during your trip, feel free to revisit us at planDisney anytime. We're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
