    If I have all 7 members of my party linked in My Disney Experience, can I make individual lightning lane attraction reservations and get genie + for everyone in my party?

    Hey there Kelly! Welcome back to planDisney! I, too, am the gatekeeper of making Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane reservations for my family! The biggest gatekeeper perk I've found is that I know exactly when everyone else is busy, so I can sneak away to indulge myself in a SOLO snack! Yes, solo. The keeper of the reservations deserves a reward! I recommend a Cheshire Cat Tail from Cheshire Café in Magic Kingdom Park.

    Yes, you can make Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane reservations for your entire party as long as everyone is linked in the My Disney Experience app. Here are the steps I follow to grab reservations for my family.

    1. Open the MyDisneyExperience app
    2. Navigate to the Disney Genie Service in the app
    3. Select the "Tip Board" and make sure the park is correct (it always defaults to Magic Kingdom Park for me each time I open the app)
    4. Locate the attraction you would like to reserve
    5. Choose "Book Experience" under the Disney Genie+ option
    6. Confirm your party (here you should see all 7 of your party members) and follow the prompts

    Be sure to review the reservation time on the final confirmation screen. In my experience, the time displayed initially is not always the same when you reach the final step.

    For purchasing your Individual Lightning Lanes, you can follow the steps outlined above and choose "Purchase" under the Individual Lightning Lane option for your attraction instead of "Book Experience."

    I hope this helps, Kelly. Soon you'll be immersed in the magic of Walt Disney World!

    Until next time,
