    I am the primary account holder/planner for our Disney account, but can I make Genie+ reservations for my family if I don't want to ride the ride but everyone else does, or am I automatically included as the primary?

    Hello there, Julie, and welcome to planDisney! It sounds like you have the best Disney Vacation job there is: keeper of the Genie+ reservations! You have the amazing privilege of keeping the fun flowing for your group. I think it’s only fair that they pretty much have to do what you say and make you feel special because you’re running the show! Getting treated like royalty while already on a Disney Vacation sounds like the perfect trade-off to all of that planning. 

    Julie, I have some great news for you: you can absolutely book Genie+ Lightning Lane Entrance reservations for everyone in your party even if you don’t want to experience the attraction. After selecting the attraction in your My Disney Experience mobile app, the next screen will ask you to confirm the members of your party you would like to include in the reservation. All you have to do is remove the check mark from your name and complete the remaining prompts. You can even split your group up even further and make reservations for two different attractions in the same return window if your party would like to split up. The possibilities are endless! I’ll also let you in on one of my best-kept Disney secrets. Since I am the keeper of the Genie+ reservations, I intentionally plan a few attractions each day for every else to experience while I hang back. Why, you may ask? Disney Snacks — that’s why! I take that time to partake in a solo dolo snack. The best part is that no one ever knows, as long as you make sure to discard all the evidence!

    I hope this helps, Julie! You’re gonna have a rock ’n’ rollin good time! I had to sneak in a dad joke! If you have more questions while planning your vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
