    I am planning a trip and purchases tickets and made reservations. My tickets came with lightning pass. My phone is compatible with your app. How can we use our lightning passes? How can we make dining reservations without it?

    Hello, Nicole! 

    Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so happy that you already have tickets and the Disneyland Mobile App on your phone. You're very close to unlocking the magic powers of the Disney Genie

    The first bit of good news I have is that you can already think about your meals because you don't need Lightning Lane reservations to make dining reservations. You can simply head to the Disneyland App as soon as you're 60 days away from your trip and reserve the tables you want day by day. Isn't it cool?

    Since your tickets already include Genie+, you're already covered to secure access to select Lightning Lane queues during your visit, and you don't need to reserve any of them in advance.

    After activating your tickets at the turnstiles, simply open your app, tap the plus sign on the bottom of your screen and select "View My Genie Day and Tip Board." Then you will select "Tip Board" to see the available attractions, their Stand By wait times, and Lightning Lane Disney Genie + availability. The final step is to choose your first attraction and you'll be all set! 

    Once it's time to redeem your reservation, you will open the app, select "Redeem," and scan your phone as you enter the attraction. You'll be able to reserve the next Lightning Lane as soon as you redeem your previous one, so don't forget to maximize your time with this little tip! 

    I hope you have a wonderful time, Nicole! And if you want suggestions before making your dining reservations, please let us know. We'll be here to help! 

    May the magic be with you,
