    Hi, I'm planning a trip to WDW in November and have a few questions. There will be 5 adults and two children (9 and 3). Is there a way to purchase Genie+ and set LLs for all members of my party at one time on my phone (bulk actions by one person)?

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for bringing us your question today! I'm usually the keeper of all vacation plans in my family so I can appreciate your desire to streamline your morning routine when it's time to hit the parks. The good news is yes! You can certainly purchase Disney Genie+ Service and select Lightning Lane return times for members of your travel party. You'll just need to make sure a few key things are in place. Let's dive in!

    First, you'll want to be sure all members of your travel party are linked on your Family & Friends list. If you are the parent or guardian of the children you'll be able to create and manage a profile for each of them. Otherwise, their parents will need to create profiles for them and allow you to add them to your Family & Friends list. If the other adults already have their own My Disney Experience Accounts you can add them to your Family & Friends list by scanning their linking code within the My Disney Experience Mobile App, finding them through connected guests, or by inputting their name, age, and birthdate. You can also log in to your My Disney Experience Account online and import guests via a Walt Disney World Resort Reservation using their Confirmation Number and Last Name. Once everyone is listed double-check that the appropriate permissions have been set for you all to share plans. 

    Once that's squared away you'll want to make sure each person's admission media is linked to their profile, as you'll need a ticket to purchase Disney Genie+ Service for the day. I designate the members of my travel party during the checkout process and can see their tickets automatically linked in the My Disney Experience Mobile App. If the tickets were purchased in separate transactions you can verify each person's tickets are linked

    When the time comes to purchase Disney Genie+ Service each day you should be able to select the members of your travel party and purchase in one transaction. Purchase availability begins at midnight on the day of your visit, but I typically set an early morning alarm each day. I'd recommend getting an early start on the first day to make sure you don't run into any unforeseen tech issues. Once you've completed the purchase you can begin making Lightning Lane selections at 7 a.m. You'll see a list of Family & Friends with shared plans and can place a checkmark next to their name to include them in that particular attraction selection. I love managing my group's selections so we always end up with the same return windows.

    I hope this was helpful Michael. If you have any other questions please come back and let us know. You're also welcome to speak with a Cast Member for additional technical assistance.

    Wishing you a magical visit,
