    Hello, I’m a Magic Key holder. Can I purchase Genie + before my reserved park visit?

    Hey howdy hey, Sherry! You’ve got a friend in me at planDisney!

    I always enjoy helping my fellow Magic Key holders, so let’s get started. At this time, there isn’t a way for Magic Key holders to purchase Disney Genie+ service ahead of their reserved park visit. So, you’ll need to wait until you’ve entered Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park to add Disney Genie+ service to your ticket, and you’ll need to add it each day of your vacation upon entering one of the theme parks. 

    However, I’m happy to report that adding Genie+ is a quick, simple process that you can perform within minutes, as long as you’ve prepared ahead of time. To help you prepare, you’ll want to make sure you have the Disneyland app downloaded on your mobile device before you arrive. As soon as your tickets are scanned into either theme park, simply open your app, and tap on the three lines in the lower right corner. Select “My Genie Day” and look for “Get Disney Genie+ Service.” Now, tap “Get Disney Genie+ Service,” again, and you’ll be prompted to select which tickets are eligible to add Genie+ for that day. Select the tickets you’d like to add the service to, complete your purchase, and off you go!  

    Once your transaction is complete, you can book your first Lightning Lane. You’ll be able to choose from about 20 attractions between the two theme parks, if you have Park Hopper tickets. Just keep in mind that you won’t be able to “hop” to the other park until after 1:00 PM. Keep in mind that there are currently two attractions not included in Genie+ service, including Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (at Disneyland Park), and Radiator Springs Racers (in Disney California Adventure Park). These attractions can be purchased for a separate fee as Individual Lightning Lanes on the Disneyland app. 

    I hope this information helps you enjoy a smooth start to your Disney day, Sherry! If you have any additional planning questions, please stop by again… we’re all EARs!

    See ya’ real soon,
