    I know that as an AP holder I cannot add Genie+ until the day I go to a park. But my spouse has a 4 day pass and I want to add Genie+ to her pass now. How?

    Hi Brenda, welcome to planDisney!

    As an Annual Passholder, you're committed to experiencing the magic of a Walt Disney World Resort during The World's Most Magical Celebration. I've made it a personal goal to see how many EARidescent treats I can enjoy during the 18-month celebration.  Be sure to check out the 50th Anniversary Sips and Bites guide. The sugar is calling!

    The Disney Genie+ service allows Guests to reserve Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions throughout the four theme parks. Lightning Lane entrances ensure low wait times for even the most popular attractions. It was recently announced that now through August 7, Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway, Frozen Ever After, and Space Mountain have been added to the list of attractions available for Genie+ Lightning Lane bookings. The wishes are flowing!

    Guests with valid park tickets, like your spouse, should be able to purchase Genie+ in advance for the four-day duration of their ticket online or in the My Disney Experience mobile app. As long as you and your spouse are connected as Family and Friends in My Disney Experience and her ticket has been linked, either of you can follow these steps online:

    1. Sign in to your My Disney Experience account planning page.   
    2. Scroll down and click the "Tickets and Memory Maker" tab, which is next to the "Daily Itinerary" tab. 
    3. Select "Change Ticket" next to the ticket you want to modify.
    4. Add Disney Genie+ service to your ticket. 

    To add Disney Genie+ service via the My Disney Experience mobile app:

    1. Select "My Day" from the home screen, which appears in blue letters on the right of the screen, under your personal greeting.
    2. Click "Get Disney Genie+."

    Keep in mind, Brenda, it is currently possible for your spouse to purchase Genie+ each day for the same price per person per day as an advance purchase. Both of your same-day Genie+ purchases can even be completed in one transaction as early as 12:00 a.m. on each park day. Also be aware that certain ticket types are not able to add Genie+ in advance, such as older tickets and Disney Military Salute tickets. However Genie+ lands in the palm of your hand, I recommend being on your Tip Board in the My Disney Experience app (three small lines at the bottom right of the home screen --> Tip Board) ready to make your first Lightning Lane booking at 7:00 a.m. on the dot.

    Plan magic; planDisney.
