    Does each person have to have Disney Genie to get lighting lane rides?

    Hi Karen! Welcome to planDisney, where we do our best to answer each and every Guest's questions. I'm so happy you found us!

    Each Guest who would like to access Lightning Lanes for a shorter wait time than the regular standby queue would need to have purchased the Disney Genie+ Service. One person can purchase it for everyone in your travel party, each person can pay individually through their own My Disney Experience mobile app, or if you have multiple families in your group, you can break it up however you'd like. Then, you can all plan together as long as each person is connected through the Family & Friends list on their My Disney Experience account. To get access to the Lightning Lanes for the most popular rides at the resort, you can purchase Individual Lightning Lanes which are priced per person, per ride. Each Guest would need to purchase these and there's a maximum of 2 of these selections per day.

    Ever since its launch, I have not traveled to the Walt Disney World Resort without purchasing Disney Genie+, Individual Lightning Lanes, or a combination of both. They just make your wait so much shorter and then you can spend your time doing other things like shopping for merchandise, enjoying the lively entertainment options around the parks, hunting for your next favorite snack, or a combination of all of the above.

    Karen, keep in mind that the standard Disney Genie Service is free to use on your My Disney Experience mobile app. While you won't be able to use Lightning Lanes with the standard service, you will be able to tell it what types of experiences you'd like to enjoy and it will come up with a personalized itinerary for your day. It will suggest the best times of day for the lowest waits, places to eat, and more! And at this time, there are Virtual Queues available for TRON Lightcycle / Run Presented by Enterprise in Magic Kingdom Park and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT. A chance to get a Boarding Group for these rides is included in your theme park ticket!

    I hope you enjoy your visit to the resort. Please reach out again if you have any other questions.

    You ain't never had a friend like the Genie,
