    Can another person in my group enroll our group in virtual queue while I try to get genie+ for our group? If so do you have directions on how to do that?

    Hiya Mary!

    Welcome to planDisney! I am all about park strategy and maximizing every minute in the Parks. I just hate waiting in long lines and find using Genie+, Individual Lightning Lanes and Virtual Queues are some of the best tricks right now for a great Park day.

    You can definitely have one person in your planning party work to grab a Virtual Queue at the same time as someone works to secure a Lightning Lane with Genie+. However, each of you must have your own My Disney Experience account and be linked to each other on the Family & Friends list. Make sure that you are all sharing your plans and are logged into your separate accounts on your My Disney Experience Mobile App. If you are starting your day early then being ready to go at 6:45 PM is the smart thing to do. Purchase Genie+ and be ready on one device to grab a Lightning Lane at 7:00 PM. At the same time, another person in your party is looking for the Virtual Queue button and setting up the group that wishes to ride either TRON Lightcycle / Run Presented by Enterprise or Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Your Virtual Queue choice is of course based on which Park you have a Theme Park Reservation for. Don't forget you can try again to book another Virtual Queue boarding group at 1:00 PM. My tip is to start refreshing about 5 seconds before its time and click quickly. Also, make sure your My Disney Experience Mobile App is updated and you are properly connected to the wifi or cellular data. 

    You can also use the two different My Disney Experience accounts to help grab dining reservations at the same time. Don't forget that you can cancel and reschedule up to 2 hours before your existing reservation now. My husband and I use our separate accounts a lot when we want to get a lot of people reservations in a restaurant at the same time. I break up my party into smaller groupings such as parties of 4 and 2. I make sure that the reservation times are within 15 minutes of each other and arrive at the restaurant 20 minutes before the earliest booking. I kindly let the Cast Member at the front know that I have two reservations and would like my party to sit together. I have found this works almost 90 percent of the time for me. 

    I hope this helps and if you have any questions please let me know!

    Happy Planning!
