    Can one person in group get in the virtual queues and another person book genie+ when they open in the morning? And how would we do that? Do we sign into both devices with the same account or do we add the same group members to 2 different accounts?

    Hi Chelsea! Welcome back to planDisney! I know it might feel like ages until your next adventure, but trust me, time flies! Before you know it, you'll be in The Most Magical Place on Earth, and I couldn't be more excited for you!

    I recently returned from a short trip down South. Like you, I like to have a plan for all my Virtual Queues, Genie+ selections, and Individual Lightning Lanes for the day. As a father with two young kids, I'm always up before 7 am anyway, so I might as well be ready to make the most of our time, right?

    You're absolutely right - it's totally possible for two people to use different devices to make different selections at the same time. To do this, just make sure everyone in your group is included in your My Disney Experience and that you've given each other permission to see and manage each other's plans on the My Family & Friends List page. It's super easy to set up, and you can do it well in advance to save yourself any hassle on the day of your visit. Oh, and don't forget - everyone needs to have a valid theme park ticket and Theme Park Reservation, if necessary. Once you're all set, you can divide and conquer the day.

    In my experience, if two people in your group try to get the same Virtual Queue for the entire group, My Disney Experience may eventually remove one of them. My friendly advice is to avoid this and instead focus on maximizing your time at the park by booking different selections. 

    Also, please remember that you can buy your Genie+ package starting at 12:01 am on the day of your visit. However, you can only make your selections starting at 7 am.

    Chelsea, I'm sure you're a planning superstar, and I know you will have an absolutely magical time at The Walt Disney World Resort in September. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask. As a fellow Canadian and Disney fanatic, I would be pleased to help you.
