    Hello! Is it possible to add Genie+ to tickets before getting to Disneyland if we already bought our tickets?

    Hi there, Sarah! We're so happy you stopped by planDisney with your question! Did you know that you are visiting during the spookiest time of the year? Halloween Time will be in full swing by the end of September, so get your grim grinning ghosts in a row for a BOO-tacular time!

    I'm so happy to hear you already have those tickets ready to go ... and hopefully, those theme park reservations are squared away too! At this point, you will need to wait until you scan through the Main Entrance Gate to add Genie+, but I'm here to tell you it's easier than asking Genie himself to grant a wish! I'll walk you through it! Once you are through the gate, tap the "+" along the bottom navigation bar in your Disneyland Mobile App. Select "View My Genie Day and Tip Board" and toggle to "Tip Board". Right at the top, you will see "Disney Genie+ Purchase for Today". Just a few taps of your magic lantern and Genie+ and all the perks are yours!

    You will be able to make your first Lightning Lane immediately, and don't forget to hop in front of as many Disney PhotoPass Photographers that you can find! Included in your Genie+ day is access to unlimited digital downloads of all PhotoPass photos, including those taken on attractions and Magic Shots! You will be able to make your second selection either when you tap into the first Lightning Lane or two hours after you made the initial selection if the first is for later in the day. Truly, a whole new world of Disneyland planning!

    While you are getting ready for your trip, be sure to check out Episode 3 of the planDisney Podcast - Halfway to Halloween! My fellow panelists are giving out all the tricks and treats and letting you in on some little-known tips for this scary season. I always like to check out the Entertainment Schedule as well ahead of time, especially when there are once-a-year spectaculars and must-sees like the Halloween Screams fireworks! The schedule usually updates about 6 weeks ahead of your arrival, so make a little note in your calendar. You'll also want to be sure to check out some of those fabulously festive attraction overlays. Experience some of your favorite attractions dressed up for the holiday, like Haunted Mansion Holiday, Guardians of the Galaxy - Monster's After Dark, Luigi's Honkin' Haul-O-Ween, and Mater's Graveyard JamBOOree!

    Sarah, you are in for one magical time. If you have any more questions, come back to see us here at planDisney!

    Boo to you!
