    Can 1 person in a planning party purchase genie+ to manage lightening lane and virtual queues for the entire group?

    Hi there, Carolyn!

    Welcome to planDisney. We're delighted you've dropped by with a fantastic Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! You'll be making your way to The Most Magical Place on Earth very soon, and I'm sure you're anxious to experience all of the thrills in the theme parks. I'd be happy to help you and your group prepare for a perfect Disney day!

    Carolyn, one person (let's call them the "primary Guest") can certainly purchase Disney Genie+ service, make Lightning Lane entry selections, and enter virtual queues on behalf of a group. The key here is to ensure that all members of the travel party are connected to the "primary Guest" in My Disney Experience. To connect via Family & Friends, you'll want to open the My Disney Experience mobile app and select the "☰" icon to open the main menu. Scroll down to the "Account" section and tap "Profile." Then, select the "Family & Friends List" tab, scroll down to the bottom, and tap "Add a Guest." You'll see several options listed on how to find and add each Guest in your travel party!

    Once you're all linked up to each member of your group, you'll be able to purchase Disney Genie+ service on behalf of each individual with valid theme park admission beginning after 12:00 a.m. on the day of your theme park visit. Then, promptly at 7:00 a.m., you'll be able to secure your group's first Lightning Lane entry selection! Carolyn, virtual queues also become available at 7:00 a.m. on the dot, so it may be best to have another member of your travel party try to snag one of these while you're working on the Lightning Lane booking.

    I hope you've found these suggestions helpful, and I wish your group a thrill-filled day at the Walt Disney World Resort, Carolyn! If you have any additional questions before or during your trip, you can always revisit us here at planDisney. We're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
