    Can one person in a group purchase genie+ for the entire group at midnight? All of our tickets are linked together already.

    Kachow, Austen, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for racing over here with your question about Genie+; since your trip will be here faster than Lightning McQueen can take his victory lap, let's get you sorted out to unleash all the power of Genie+ to make sure your wait times move just as fast!

    Disney Genie+ has become one of my favorite tools for helping my family maximize our attractions in the parks while minimizing the time we wait in lines! One of the best features of this service is that, as long as your travel party is connected as Family & Friends in the My Disney Experience mobile app, you can designate one person to purchase, book, and organize all of your Genie+ selections throughout the day. This streamlined planning makes for a practically perfect day, indeed!

    To purchase Genie+, you can log into your My Disney Experience mobile app starting at midnight on the day you want to use this service, and click on the LL Rides, Shows & Lightning Lane Entry tile, which will bring you to your Tip Board. From here, you will see an option to purchase Genie+; on the next screen, you will select your theme park, and then it will show you who is eligible to purchase this service for the day. Keep in mind to be eligible, a Guest must have a valid theme park admission linked to his or her account. Once you select your party, you will be able to confirm your purchase and begin making your selections!

    When using Genie+, remember the basic rule is that you can make your first selection at 7 AM, and then another selection every two hours after the park opens or after you have tapped into your most recent selection (whichever happens first!). To make the most of this, you can find your next eligible time displayed on your Tip Board, and I like to recommend setting an alarm for a few minutes before so you'll be ready right on time to choose another attraction! 

    One other thing to keep in mind is that there are a few attractions in each park that do not offer Genie+, but instead are accessible through purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane, joining a Virtual Queue, or choosing to utilize a standby line. While these attractions are subject to change, the current attractions not included in Genie+ are:
    • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and TRON Lightcycle/Run (Virtual Queue or Individual Lightning Lane only at this time) in Magic Kingdom Park
    • Avatar Flight of Passage in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park
    • Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT (Virtual Queue or Individual Lightning Lane only at this time)
    • Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Disney's Hollywood Studios
    Austen, I hope this helps you plan for an amazing vacation at the Most Magical Place on Earth! I know you're going to have a wonderful time racing from attraction to attraction with the help of Genie+, and don't forget that all of your digital downloads of attraction images captured with PhotoPass are included with your Disney Genie+ purchase! These are always fun for capturing the fun you're having in real time! As your countdown unwinds, feel free to race back to planDisney if we can help you with anything else!

    See you real soon,
