    I’ve planned a Disney trip and purchased genie+ for 8 people. Two don’t have the app, so can I schedule their attractions for them using genie+?

    Hi Cynthia,
    Welcome to planDisney! In less than two weeks you will be immersed in the sights, sounds, and smells of Walt Disney World Resort. The sight of Cinderella Castle and its makeover for the 50th Anniversary Celebration will make you gasp. The sounds of families laughing together will make your heart smile, and the smell of freshly baked 50th Anniversary Cinnamon Rolls as you walk past Main Street Bakery on Main Street, U.S.A. will make your mouth water. The magic is calling!

    Your Disney Genie+ service purchase ensures limited wait times at over 40 attractions throughout the four theme parks via Lightning Lane entrances. You can absolutely book Lightning Lane attractions for some or all members of your party. For this to work seamlessly on your trip, here are your must-dos:

    1. Log into your My Disney Experience account.
    2. Add all members of your planning party to your "Family and Friends List" in My Disney Experience. For any members of your party that don't automatically appear, click "Add a Guest" and "I'll enter their name and age." For Guests with their own My Disney Experience account, select "Invite this Guest to connect" and enter the email address associated with their account. For Guests without a My Disney Experience account, click "I want to manage all plans for this Guest."
    3. Link your park tickets to your My Disney Experience account. Part of the linking process will allow you to assign each ticket to an individual in your Family and Friends List.
    4. Check the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar and make park pass reservations for each of your park days. You can make park reservations for anyone on your Family and Friends list with a linked ticket.   
    5. On your park days, log into the My Disney Experience mobile app and be on your Tip Board
    (home screen --> My Day --> Tip Board) at 7:00 a.m. on the dot, ready to book your first Lightning Lane selection.
    6. When booking a Lightning Lane selection, select all members of your Family and Friends list you would like to join your party. When booking the same attraction, I recommend one person book for your entire party of eight. This streamlines the booking process and ensures a consistent arrival time for everyone.

    I know your traveling companions appreciate your magical leadership, Cynthia. If you have any other questions about maximizing the magic of your Genie+ purchase, planDisney is hEAR for you.

    Choose magic,
