    We have a party of 17 going (saved 3 years for a Girl Scout trip!). I am trying to figure out how to make virtual ques and Genie + manageable. I know there are limits in group size. In order to "select all" do you have to delete others ?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Brandy! Welcome to planDisney. If anyone can make a Walt Disney World adventure the ultimate success, it's Girl Scouts. 

    Now is a great time to accept the help promise from your Girl Scout sisters. Even as a planning matriarch, I like to have at least one other adult help with planning. Indeed, my husband has been able to nab a Virtual Queue while my phone is still hanging, so if you can find a willing and able fellow planner in your Guest group, I recommend accepting their help. Now, on to the wonder of Walt Disney World and My Disney Experience. I suggest splitting your group into at least two groups managed by an adult - here's why. 

    Disney Genie+ Service can be purchased for a maximum of 12 Guests, so you could have two groups to select applicable Lightning Lanes throughout the day for your Guest. Please know that Disney Genie+ Service has recently changed its pricing structure. You can now buy Genie+ for one Park per day, such as EPCOT, or for all four Walt Disney World parks. It's worth thinking about what works best for your party ahead of time. 

    Individual Lightning Lanes (available separately for the most popular rides at Walt Disney World) also have a maximum of 12 Guests at one time. 

    Virtual Queues are available for a maximum of 10 Guests at one time. At 7 am sharp, it's time to go, go, go. My witty and wonderful fellow Disney panelist, Nimmy, walks through the best strategy for securing a virtual queue. It's SO worth the effort to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind!

    Have you thought about dining reservations? Larger group bookings can be trickier to secure, so breaking your group into two for dining reservations may help. If you can book close enough times, you can always speak with a helpful Cast Member when checking in for your reservation to request the two tables sit close together, subject to availability. Alternatively, it may be more time-efficient to use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. It's easy to use and available at many locations at Walt Disney World, so you're sure to satisfy everyone's tastebuds! 

    Brandy, I'm sending you and the troop all my pixie-dusted wishes for a magical experience at Walt Disney World. Please let me know if you need anything further ahead of your adventure! Have a delightful Disney Day! Louise.
