    Can I pre-purchase Genie+. I have my tickets already but it only lets me buy for the same day not in advance. We are doing a one day park hopper and are starting with DCA. Any recommendations on which park may be better to start with. We are only 2 adult

    Hiya, Katherine!

    Thanks for stopping by with your Disneyland Resort vacation planning question. You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! Oh boy - you'll be visiting The Happiest Place on Earth in just a couple of weeks. The countdown is almost over! Katherine, I'm happy you're here and I'd love to share a few tips to help you make the most of your time at the Disneyland Resort theme parks.

    Guests who purchase Disneyland Resort theme park tickets have two opportunities to add Disney Genie+ service: either at the time the tickets are purchased or on the day of their visit. If you have already purchased theme park tickets without Disney Genie+ service, you'll have to wait until your ticket's valid use date to add the service to your existing admission. Katherine, I encourage you to download the Disneyland Resort mobile app and familiarize yourself with its features ahead of your trip. As soon as your ticket is scanned for entry into the theme park, you'll be able to purchase Disney Genie+ service in the mobile app to add convenience and value to your day! This service will not only allow you access to Lightning Lane entrances, Katherine. You'll also unlock fun photo Disney PhotoPass filters and lenses, exciting Audio Tales, and unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads from your enchanting day in the theme parks!

    Park Hopper tickets are a fantastic option for Guests hoping to experience both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park in the same day. With these tickets, you'll be able to easily "hop" between the theme parks after 11:00 a.m.! Paired with Disney Genie+ service, you can quickly transfer between the theme parks to enjoy attractions all throughout the Disneyland Resort within the same day. I like to base my "starting park" decision on which theme park I want to end the day in. Is there a particular nighttime spectacular you'd like to catch? My family likes to begin their day in one theme park and finish it out in the other, so if you're hoping to cap off your day with Wondrous Journeys at Disneyland Park, I'd recommend sticking with your plan of visiting Disney California Adventure Park first! Katherine, since Radiator Springs Racers is not included with Disney Genie+ service purchase (it is available, however, as an individual Lightning Lane selection), you may want to consider "rope-dropping" this attraction to minimize your wait time. This fast-paced, fun-filled ride is not-to-be-missed!

    Katherine, I hope this information helps you to prepare for an unforgettable day at the Disneyland Resort. I'm wishing you a vacation filled with magical memories! If you have any additional questions before or during your visit, please feel free to revisit us here at planDisney anytime. We're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
