    How do I join someone else’s group/party when I bought my own ticket to use genie plus and lightning lanes

    Welcome to planDisney, Jessica! 

    I'm delighted you stopped by with your question for us. 

    Three cheers for planning a magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! I'm so excited for you to walk through the tunnels of Magic Kingdom Park and onto Main Street, U.S.A. You'll be welcomed by cheerful music, bright balloons bobbing up and down, and of course, at the center of it all, Cinderella Castle. Just thinking about it makes me giddy for you!

    Jessica, look at you go! You're already ahead of the game by getting your theme park tickets. I'm happy to hear you are planning to purchase Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane entry selections. Although you will be purchasing your own ticket and the Disney Genie+ service, you can absolutely still plan with others! To be able to do so, you'll first need to add them to your Family & Friends list on your My Disney Experience account. 

    To invite Guests to plan together, please follow the steps below. 

    -Click this link and scroll down until you can select the + Add a Guest option. 
    -You will be asked to enter their name and age. For an adult, it will simply be the 18+ selection.  
    -You will then add their email address, and it will invite them to connect with you. 
    -After your Guest accepts the invitation to connect with you, you can begin planning together and even make Disney Genie+ selections together and join Virtual Queues together! 

    You'll be able to purchase the Disney Genie+ service beginning at midnight on the day of your visit. Then, starting at 7 AM, you'll be eligible to make your first Disney Genie+ attraction selection. I usually wake up around 6:45 AM, purchase the Disney Genie+ service, and then prepare to make my first selection at 7 AM. If you need help buying Disney Genie+ Service, please click here and scroll down to How to Purchase Disney Genie+ Service

    Here's a great list of How-To videos that explain Lightning Lane entrances and everything that has to do with Disney Genie+!

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Jessica!
