    I am a magic key holder. I have a reservation next week. I cannot add Genie plus service ahead of time. I went to the app, to My Day, changed the date to my reservation and clicked the purple banner to add and it says I have to wait until we arrive.

    Hiya Robin!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Are you enjoying your time as a member of the coolest club in the Kingdom? Disneyland Magic Keyholders have had a pretty fun-tastic yEAR with exclusive photo opps, cool included swag, super cute merch, and even a members-only dining option! Don't forget to follow the official Disneyland Magic Key Instagram account so you can stay on top of all of these magical moments!

    There are currently only two ways to purchase the still pretty brand new Disney Genie+ add-on option; Guests who are visiting with standard Theme Park Admission Tickets can add the option at the time of their ticket purchase. (Kind of like a Park Hopper.) Or, everyone, no matter which ticket or pass they hold, can add G+ same-day. There isn't really a benefit to having Genie+ ahead of your Disney day as everyone must be scanned into a theme park before they can start selecting attraction Lightning Lanes. With the way things are now, you'll only be about 4 button clicks and 90 seconds behind those entering the parks with the phenomenal cosmic powers of Genie+ already loaded to the itty bitty living space of their Disneyland Mobile Apps. The good news is that it sounds like you know exactly what to do once you get inside the parks for the day!

    I hope that this helped to clEAR up your question, Robin! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Panel Instagram account where we're sharing all kinds of tips and tricks. We even just launched the brand new planDisney Podcast! Thank you again for stopping by, and if you have any more Disneyland Resort or Disneyland Magic Key planning questions, We're All Ears!
