    I have park hopper tickets for July 6. I wanted to add the Genie plus service to my tickets, but I don’t see a way to add that after I redeemed my tickets.

    Hi there, Kelly, and thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    Your summertime visit to the Happiest Place on Earth will be here in less than one month… let the countdown begin!

    I’m so glad to hEAR that you’re considering purchasing Disney Genie+ Service, since it’s my favorite handy helper in the parks. Disney Genie+ can be added to your tickets in two different ways -- either as part of your original ticket purchase on, or on a daily basis on the Disneyland app, as soon as you enter one of the theme parks. Since you already purchased your Park Hopper tickets, you'll need to wait until you’ve entered Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park to add Genie+.

    So, here’s what you can do now to prepare for your big day. First, if you haven’t already, you’ll want to download the Disneyland app on your mobile device. As soon as your tickets are scanned in to either theme park, simply open your app and tap on the three lines in the lower right corner. Select “My Genie Day” and look for “Get Disney Genie+ for Today.” Now, tap “Get Disney Genie+ Service,” and you’ll be prompted to select which tickets are eligible to add Genie+ for that day. Simply select the tickets you’d like to add the service to, and you’re all set! 

    Once the transaction is complete, you can go ahead and book your first Lightning Lane attraction. You’ll be able to choose from about 18 attractions between the two theme parks since you have Park Hopper tickets. Just keep in mind that you won’t be able to “hop” to the other park until after 1:00 PM. 

    Also, there are currently three attractions not included in Genie+, including Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, and Radiator Springs Racers. These attractions can be purchased separately as Individual Lightning Lanes, and you can purchase up to two of them per day. 

    Last but not least, be on the lookout for Disney PhotoPass opportunities on select attractions and throughout the theme parks, since Disney Genie+ also includes unlimited downloads of your Disney PhotoPass photos! 

    Wishing you an epic, Genie-powered day, Kelly!

    See ya’ real soon,
