    If only one person in our group wishes to go on a ride which use Genie+ or Lightening lanes, can we use these services for just one person out of our family of 4 if the whole family wants to be together for the next Genie+ ride? How would this work?

    Hi Lauren,
    Thanks for visiting planDisney with your excellent question about the new Disney Genie+ service.  You're smart to plan a winter escape from the cold and snow.  Before you know it you'll be enjoying sunshine and DOLE Whips at Walt Disney World Resort.  Even The World's Most Magical Celebration can experience an evening chill, though, and a glance at the 10-day forecast tells me you should bring a coat and some warm hugs.    

    As you've heard, the Disney Genie+ service gives Guests Lightning Lane access to over 40 popular attractions across all four theme parks.  The service can be added to your tickets in advance for the entire duration of your stay or purchased day-of beginning at 12:00 a.m.  Your first Lightning Lane selection can be made at 7:00 a.m in the My Disney Experience Mobile App.  Each person may only hold one Lightning Lane reservation at a time, though all members of your party do not need to hold reservations for the same attractions.  You may select specific members of your party during the Lightning Lane reservation process. Here's a breakdown of what that process looks like once you've purchased Genie+:

    • Open the My Disney Experience app
    • Hit the "+" at the bottom of the home screen and select "View My Genie Day and Tip Board."
    • Navigate to "Tip Board."
    • Scroll to view attractions, then click "Book Experience" next to the desired attraction labeled "LL Disney Genie+" with an arrival time.
    • Review the details of your reservation and click "Edit" to add or remove Guests from Your Party. Your Party will default to members of your Family and Friends list that have purchased Genie+.
    • Click "Continue" and you're done!
    If only one member of your party wishes to ride a certain attraction, they will be eligible to book their next Lightning Lane reservation with the rest of the party as soon as they have completed the second touchpoint for their current Lightning Lane attraction or two hours after their last Lightning Lane reservation was made. That's a lot of electricity in one sentence. Ka-chow!

    Genie+ brings a whole new world of in-park planning to your park days. When in doubt, I encourage you to visit the friendly Cast Members of the Guest Experience Team, conveniently located around the four theme parks under big, blue umbrellas. The panelists at planDisney are also here to help in any way we can before, during, or after your vacation.

    Have a magical stay,
