    I have 3 people with Genie passes in my group. Can I purchase different lightning passes for different rides and if one person has a lightning pass, can the rest of the group go in at the same time?

    Welcome to planDisney, Nergis! 

    You must be thrilled! Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation begins TODAY!
    Nergis, there are two different ways to purchase Lightning Lane entry, one is by purchasing Disney Genie+ service for some or all of your Guests, and the other is Individual Purchases of Lightning Lane entry. I'll explain both, so you'll know which works best for your party. 

    Disney Genie+ Service: This service lasts throughout the day during operating hours for Guests who purchase this service. It works for several rides throughout the parks, but not all. This service allows Guests to choose from select Lightning Lane entrances at the parks, one at a time, beginning at 7 AM on the day of your visit. You could select different rides for the members of your party as long as everyone has opted to purchase the Disney Genie+ service. If one person in your party has a Lightning Lane entry for a specific ride and the others do not, they would not be eligible to enter the Lightning Lane queue with the eligible person. Instead, the other two Guests would need to wait in the standby queue. If you scroll down this page, it shows which experiences are offered through the Disney Genie+ service provided at each park.

    Individual Purchases of Lightning Lane Entry: The other service allowing guests to enter through the Lightning Lane queue is the Individual Lightning Lane Entry purchases. These are for specific attractions not offered through Disney Genie+ service and are the most highly sought-after attractions at each park. Pricing for this varies by attraction, and you can find which experiences are offered if you scroll down, select the park, and look under "Lightning Lane Entrances for Individual Purchase." You could purchase different Individual Lightning Lane selections for some/one of the members of your party; however, it would be solely for the individual that's purchased the service, and the rest of the group would not be able to utilize it. 

    To book your party's Disney Genie+ selections, you will want to follow these steps:

    -Open up your My Disney Experience Mobile App
    -Tap on the three horizontal lines on the bottom right of the screen, then select Tip Board
    -If you still need to purchase Disney Genie+, you can choose to purchase the service. 
    -Once you have done so, head back to Tip Board. You can change the theme park towards the top of the screen and then scroll to locate the attraction you want to reserve for your party. 
    -Once you choose Book Experience under the Disney Genie+ option, it will have you confirm your entire party or select members of your party. 
    -After following the prompts and finalizing your selection, your party is all set! 

    If you would like to book your party's Individual Lightning Lane selections, please follow these steps:

    -Open up your My Disney Experience Mobile App
    -Tap on the three horizontal lines on the bottom right of the screen, then select Tip Board
    -Scroll down until you see the experience offering the service. It will say LL Individual Lightning Lane option with the price, and select it. 
    -Follow the prompts to select the members of your party who are purchasing this and then finalize. 

    I hope you have an enchanting visit, Nergis.
