    If I have my parents listed under friends and family on my disney experience can I reserve Genie+/Lightning lanes for them apart of my family? Also, with that would that charge me for their genie+ or their card on file?

    Welcome to planDisney, Bethany!

    Thank you for taking the time to send a question our way. It is a pleasure to assist you as you plan a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    If your family members are included in your Family & Friends list, you will also be able to purchase Disney Genie+ and individual Lightning Lane entry for them as long as they have valid theme park tickets and a Theme Park Reservation (required to enter a park through January 8, 2024). If you make those purchases via the My Disney Experience mobile app, the total amount is charged to the credit card linked to your Disney account.

    Whenever I travel with friends, we usually select who will be responsible for making individual Lightning Lane purchases for our whole group. At the end of our trip, we pay our friend back with cash, Disney Gift Cards, or via a digital payment service. Before traveling with your parents, I recommend talking to them about these charges and how you plan to pay for them. 

    I hope this information is helpful, Bethany. Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, and have a fantastic time at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best magical wishes,
