    Do kids under 3 need to buy a Genie of all the adults in the group have it?

    Hey there, Helen! Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for bringing us this great question. 

    Disney Genie+ is a service you can add to a ticket, to experience the magic of faster queues called Lightning Lanes. As Guests under age three do not require a ticket, they also do not require Disney Genie+

    Here are some tips about the magic of Genie+…my family absolutely loves this magic carpet ride when we visit! 

    ~ You can reserve your next Lightning Lane after you redeem the previous one, or in 120 minutes, whichever comes first. For example, if at 8:30 a.m. you reserve a Lightning Lane for Space Mountain at 11:00 a.m., you can reserve another Lightning Lane at 10:30 a.m. even though you haven’t redeemed your Space Mountain Lightning Lane yet. 

    ~ If you have a Park Hopper ticket and will be visiting both parks during the day, it’s helpful to know that you can reserve a Lightning Lane at Disneyland Park while physically at Disney California Adventure Park, or vice versa. Genie+ is smart and will know you can park hop after 1:00 p.m. and suggest Lightning Lane times after that.

    ~ At Disneyland Resort, Genie+ gives you complimentary access to Disney PhotoPass! This is such a wonderful perk. You can stop and take fun photos with the Disney PhotoPass Photographers and enjoy unlimited digital downloads. You’ll also get the candid attraction photos that can be so amusing. My daughters and I love scrolling through our PhotoPass snaps from previous visits. 

    Wishing you magical memories to last a lifetime, Helen!
