    I'm having trouble adding genie + to my tickets and linking them on the app. Can this not be done until we arrive in the park?

    Salaam and good evening, Elizabeth. Welcome to planDisney, where panelists like us love sharing planning tips with Guests like you, to make all your wishes come true. (Well, maybe just three wishes, per Genie’s guidance from his itty-bitty living space.)

    While Disney Genie+ can be purchased as an add-on at the time you purchase your tickets, if you didn’t add it then, you’ll need to wait until you have entered the theme parks. As soon as you go through the turnstile, have your mobile phone handy, and open the Disneyland mobile app to click “My Genie Day” where you’ll see a link to add Disney Genie+ to your day. You can add it to all the tickets linked to your account or select certain tickets. 

    In my recent visit I learned a lot about using Disney Genie+ and I’d love to share some tips to help you on your trip. 

    - Genie+ will give you access to 19 Lightning Lanes across the two theme parks. Lightning Lanes are faster queues to save you time spent waiting in line. 

    - You can make your first selection as soon as you add Genie+ service upon entry to the parks. I would pick one of the attractions that tends to book up quickly, like Space Mountain or Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run at Disneyland Park, or Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure Park. Those will be harder to get as the day progresses.

    - There are two points in time when you can make your next selection – either after you scan in to your current Lightning Lane selection, or 120 minutes after you made that selection, even if you haven’t redeemed it yet. Example: if at 8:00 a.m. you book a Space Mountain Lightning Lane for 11:00 a.m., you can make your next Lightning Lane selection at 10:00 a.m. even though you haven’t redeemed the Space Mountain one yet. I usually set a timer on my phone to remind me when I can make my next selection – that way I’m not constantly worried about checking my watch! 

    - There are three attractions not included in Genie+, for which you can purchase “a la carte” Individual Lightning Lanes. You can purchase one per attraction per day and cannot purchase more than two Individual Lightning Lanes in a day. You can purchase these with or without Genie+.

    - Exclusive to Disneyland Resort, purchasing Genie+ gives you complimentary access to Disney PhotoPass that day too, which is a great value. You can get your photos taken by Disney PhotoPass Photographers and download those as well as the attraction photos. Bonus tip – ask the photographer about taking a Magic Shot, which will include a special effect or character in your photo! 

    I hope this helps you with leveraging the phenomenal cosmic power of Genie+ during your trip. Staying one jump ahead of the breadline with those Lightning Lanes is a great way to do more during your visit.

    Your magic carpet awaits!
