    with the new Genie+ and Genie - with this app for the lightening lane will each person (Ie kids) need a phone or will you purchase per person on one phone per ride that you want ?

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Mary!

    Disney Genie is preparing to leave the lamp! I know there are plenty of questions that come with this new program and we are all so excited to experience it. 

    Mary, as long as you and your party are planning on staying together, you can plan on using one mobile device. As the “planner” in my family, we usually only use my mobile device for our family of 4. I usually have all the tickets loaded under my Disney account. You will be able to upgrade everyone’s ticket on your mobile device and when you need to “scan in” at the entrance of an attraction, you will be able to swipe across and present everyone's ticket on your device. 

    If you are planning on splitting up, then just be sure to have one mobile device available for each smaller group. You will be able to link your tickets to more than one device so there are no issues there! I do recommend packing a portable charger with you! That way you can easily charge your mobile device on the go if needed. I purchased one in the parks and love having the ability to swap it out anytime I want. 

    Mary, I hope this helps answer your question. Have a great visit and if you need anything else we’re always here, remember, you ain't never had a friend like me!
