    If I have 5 people in my party and we’re all linked with genie plus, do all 5 of us have to enter at the same time, or can three people go in at first and then two more people after the other three are off.

    Hello there Jonny!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I am so excited that you have decided to use the Disney Genie+ service on your next Disney vacation, as it truly opens up a whole new world of possibilities. As Genie would say, you've got some punch, pizazz, yahoo and how? You didn't even have to rub that lamp!

    To answer your question, your party does not have to enter the theme parks together to be able to use Disney Genie+. Indeed, you will have the opportunity to pick the members in your party who will be going on your selected attraction when getting Lightning Lanes. Indeed, as long as everyone in your party has purchased Disney Genie+, you can make Lightning Lane selections for some or all members of your party, no matter when they tap into the park. The only issue that might arise is timing - make sure that everyone in your party will be able to make it in time for your Lightning Lane! 

    To ensure that everything goes smoothly, here are some things to consider. Make sure that everyone in your party has purchased their theme park tickets and booked their theme park reservations. Then, also make sure that you are all linked to each other's Family & Friends List, as they will not show up in your list of Guests when making Lightning Lane selections otherwise. Lastly, make sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app to make your selections on the day of your visit! If you have not purchased Disney Genie+ with your tickets, I suggest planning some extra time in the morning to buy it as you want to make sure that you are ready to make your selections right at seven A.M.

    While I do not know precisely when you will be coming, I would also recommend that someone in your group has the responsibility to sign up for virtual queues. For example, the brand new attraction Guardians of the Galaxy - Cosmic Rewind currently uses virtual queues, which you can also sign up for on the My Disney Experience mobile app. Simply open your app a few minutes before the scheduling time and wait on the home page. You should see a "Join Virtual Queue" when scrolling down, so hit that button right at seven A.M. to secure your spot in the queue!

    I hope this was helpful, Jonny, and that you and your fellow space rangers will have the best day ever on your upcoming Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please feel free to reach back out. You ain't never had a friend like us!

    Have a magical day, and may all your wishes come true,
