    We are going to be at MK next M as a party of 4 and I plan to get Genie+, I plan to manage everything from the MDE on my phone. For lightening lanes, do I tap once for all of us or do I have to scroll to each ticket individually and tap for each (4x)

    Welcome to planDisney, Jay! I'm so glad you stopped by. Your visit to Walt Disney World Resort is coming soon, so I hope you have your Mickey Ears packed and ready to go! If you plan to spend time at Magic Kingdom Park, I hope you experience the new TRON Lightcycle / Run attraction. During your visit, guests can ride this attraction during a "soft opening" before its official debut in early April. There are a couple of ways to ride, so I hope you can enter the Grid!

    Genie+ Service is one of my favorite features, so let's talk about how it works. Before your visit, please ensure all four party members are linked to your Family & Friends list in your My Disney Experience Account. Then, before 7:00 AM on the morning you plan to use Genie+, you'll purchase it in the mobile app for all four guests. When you tap on Purchase Genie+, you'll see a button to Add Another Guest at the bottom of the payment screen, so you can add everyone there. 

    At 7:00 AM, you will choose your first Lightning Lane attraction in the app. When you tap on the desired attraction, the next screen will show a list of eligible guests you can add. Remember that everyone in your party must have a Theme Park Ticket and Reservation to be eligible. Next, you'll tap on the members of your party and then tap Confirm Party at the bottom to lock in your Lightning Lane. 

    I have one tip for you if you're feeling adventurous, Jay. On the morning you have a reservation for Magic Kingdom Park, you can have another party member try for the Virtual Queue for TRON Lightcycle / Run at 7:00 AM while you are booking the first Lightning Lane. As long as everyone is linked, the other person can choose the party and try for the virtual queue. So set those alarms and have the coffee brewing!

    Bonus tip: Genie+ now offers free digital downloads of all photos taken on attractions! Tap the Photos tile in your mobile app to check them out during your visit.

    I hope you have a magical visit, Jay, and please stop by planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
