    There is only one person with a mobile telephone in my group. We purchased Genie+ for each day in the theme parks. Is the entire group able to use the lighting lanes with just one smart mobile telephone? Or, do we need to request paper tickets?

    Greetings and welcome to planDisney, Keith. Thanks for stopping by with your question. It sounds like you will be visiting the Disneyland Resort soon and I'm thrilled to help. 

    I'm so glad to hear that you will be summoning the phenomenal cosmic powers of Disney Genie+ Service for your magical visit. Disney Genie+ is a great way to reduce your wait times for attractions to have your best Disney day and help you and your group stay "one jump ahead" like Aladdin.

    All you need is one person with access to the Disneyland app who can manage and book all Lightning Lane selections for your entire party. To do this, make sure that all tickets are linked in the Disneyland app by tapping the "☰" in the lower right, followed by tapping the "Tickets and Passes" tile. Next, tap the "+" in the upper right and then "Link Tickets & Passes." Here, you can use the "camera" feature to quickly scan each ticket barcode to link all tickets under one account.

    Once the tickets have been linked, you can make your first Lightning Lane selection after all tickets have been scanned and everyone has entered the theme park. In the Disneyland app, open the menu and tap on the "Tip Board" tile to make your first selection. When you tap "Book Experience," you will see a list of everyone in your party on the next screen and can then book the Lightning Lane entrance for everyone. When you arrive at the Lightning Lane entrance during your arrival window, each ticket must be scanned before entering, which can be done from the Disneyland app.

    To make the most of Disney Genie+ Service, be sure to set a timer on your phone for when you can make your next Lightning Lane selection. You can find this time in the app at the top of the Tip Board. Not only will you save time with Genie+, but you will also get unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads from your day. Pictures are my favorite keepsakes to remember my magical visits. A picture in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle is always iconic, however, I also love getting a photo taken on Route 66 in Cars Land. And don't forget to ask your PhotoPass photographer for a fun Magic Shot - trust me on this one. 

    Well, Keith, I hope this helps as you are preparing for your magical visit. Come back to visit us with any other questions you might be curious about. Here's wishing you a most magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth. Let the countdown to the magic begin!
