    Can I include on my Genie + Purchase a family member that it is in "My Other Family and Friends" list and not in the "we´re planning together section"?

    Well hello there, Kassandra. It's nice to "meet" you! I'm so happy you found us here at planDisney.

    I'm actually currently sitting in the Sanaa Lounge at the beautiful Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village answering your question. I have used the Disney Genie+ Service and Individual Lightning Lanes each day of my vacation. It has really helped me maximize my time in the theme parks. I was able to get so much done and fit in a bunch of relaxation time because of the time I saved.

    As long as your family member is connected to you through your Family & Friends list, have valid theme park admission for the day, and a Theme Park Reservation (required until January 9, 2024), you should be able to include them in your Disney Genie+ purchase. In fact, I met my friend LeAndra at EPCOT today, and even though I'm under her "People I Do Not Have Plans With" section, she was still able to book a Virtual Queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind for us. Also, I just checked, and if I wanted to, I could purchase the Disney Genie+ Service for her even though we don't have any set plans together in the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Speaking of EPCOT, since you are visiting this September, the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will still be taking place. I spent two days exploring some of the delicious offerings at the Global Marketplaces. I think my favorite item this year was the Potato and Pea Samosa with Coriander-Lime Cream at the India booth. But there were so many amazing options, it was hard to choose. Plus, I'll be back in October to try more so who knows if my favorite will change!

    Kassandra, I hope that you and your family have an amazing visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Please reach out again if you have any other questions!

    Trust me, having a best friend by your side opens up a whole new world of possibilities,
