    I have package booked for July 2022 how do I add Genie plus to my existing tickets?

    Heigh-ho, Joanne! I'm so glad that you stopped by planDisney with your question. An upcoming summer holiday to The Most Magical Place on Earth sounds brilliant! Like Olaf, I love summer, especially at Walt Disney World Resort. Make sure you check out all the enchanting experiences that await you for the 50th Anniversary Celebration. On my most recent visit, I particularly enjoyed the Beacons of Magic displays in each Theme Park.

    As you know, Guests can now obtain "phenomenal cosmic powers" on their visit by purchasing Disney Genie+. Adding these powers to your existing tickets can be done by speaking to a Cast Member. They can make sure you have the Disney Genie+ service for the entirety of your trip. However, if you don't want this service for the entirety of your trip, you might be glad to know that you can purchase it on a day-to-day basis once you arrive. Simply open up your My Disney Experience app, click on the three lines at the bottom right corner of your screen, and then select "My Genie Day." There should be an option that says "Get Disney Genie+ for Today." Once you select it, you'll find a list of all the people in your party that you've added via My Friends & Family. You're going to want to select the members of your party that will use this service. Once you do that, you'll then make your purchase. You can then enjoy your magical wishes (a.k.a Lightning Lane Entrances).

    Joanne, rather than purchasing Disney Genie+ for the entirety of your trip, my personal recommendation is to get it on the days that you plan on going to Magic Kingdom Park and Disney Hollywood Studios. If you make use of the extra Park hours that come from staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, I don't think you'll need Disney Genie+ at EPCOT or Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park in order to enjoy all your desired attractions. You can always purchase Individual Lightning Lanes Entrances if need be. This will save you a lot of money, which you can either put towards a nice meal or... wait for it... a future vacation!

    I hope that's helpful, Joanne. Keep an eye out for the summer opening of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. I can't wait to ride it!

    Have a magical time!
