    Hi, is it possible to purchase Genie + prior to my visit? I have bought my tickets and made reservations.

    Hey Brian! Welcome to planDisney where we get excited talking about all things Disneyland Resort ... including theme park tickets, theme park reservations, and Genie +!

    You are absolutely going to love having the one and only Genie in your pocket for your days at the Happiest Place on Earth. It's Disney planning like never before ... a whole new world! Since you have already purchased your tickets and made reservations, Genie+ will be available to you as an add-on within the Disneyland Mobile App as soon as you scan through the Main Entrance Gates each day of your trip. While you do have the option to add Genie+ when you purchase your ticket, once it's been purchased this upgrade is not available until you are in the parks. Not to worry, though. It's very easy! Faster than you can say Hakuna Matata! Just open up your app once you're inside the park and navigate to the "+" in the bottom navigation bar. Select "View My Genie Day and Tip Board" and toggle to "My Day". Hit the "Get Started" button and away you go on a magic carpet ride through your day! 

    Once the purchase is complete, you can make your first Lightning Lane selection! Your second selection can be made as soon as you scan into your first OR two hours after you made the first selection. Don't worry, the app is VERY smart and loaded with cosmic powers so it will help guide you to remember these things. If my Lightning Lane is for later in the day beyond the two-hour mark, I do like to set a gentle alarm for myself so that I remember to make my next selection. Just a tip! 

    And make sure you bring your smiles and strike a post! The very best perk of Genie+ is that you will get unlimited digital downloads of all the Disney PhotoPass photos taken each day. It's a great way to gather up lots of memories to save for later! 

    Brian, magic awaits! If you have any more questions in your planning, be sure to come back to us here at planDisney

    Keep wishing on those stars,

Whether it's park days with friends, multi-generational trips, toddling around with kids or flying solo, I'm ready to help you personalize the magic at the Happiest Place On Earth!
