    Me and my partner are planning our trip to visit the park, we are planning to purchase our tickets separately. I'm not able to download the Disneyland app, but my partner has the app. Can one person purchase genie+ for each person?

    Hey there Anissa! Welcome to planDisney! You've brought us a great question about purchasing tickets and using Disney Genie+. 

    I'm happy to share that I think everything will work out just fine for your park plans with your partner.  You can make separate theme park ticket purchases and reservations and you can even do this through your separate Disneyland accounts. Then once you have your ticket purchased, you can share your ticket ID number with your partner and they can link your ticket to their account. Once you are in the parks, your partner can use the Disneyland app to scan both your tickets and purchase Disney Genie+ service for you both. Your partner will then easily be able to make upcoming Lightning Lane selections for you both. This is actually the way I suggest any party to utilize Disney Genie+. Linking tickets together on one account makes things much easier all around.

    I have a few tips to help you make the most of your Disney Genie+ experience. The first tip is to add and save a method of payment to your partner's Disneyland app on their account. This will make purchasing Disney Genie+ a quicker process after you have scanned into your first park of the day. This will also allow you to use the mobile ordering feature in the app, which is such a time saver for getting your meals or snacks from participating quick-service locations. The next would be to take notice of each time you make your Lightning Lane selection. It should tell you when you can make your next Lightning Lane selection and then set a timer so you don't forget! It should be two hours after you have made your Lightning Lane selection unless the return time is sooner than two hours and then you will be able to make a new one as soon as you have redeemed that Lightning Lane by scanning it at the attraction.

    Anissa, I hope you will find this to be helpful as you begin to plan your visit to The Happiest Place on Earth. Please come back and see us again if you have any other questions!
