    Do I have to purchase Genie + in advance of my trip?

    Why, hello there, Whitney!

    Gawrsh, it's so nice to see you again at planDisney with another question for us! We always love helping out Disneyland Resort guests here. There's just something special about this being Walt's original Park and knowing that he spent so much time here, refining the guest experience. I'd say that he did pretty well, given that we all return to the Magic time and again!

    I'm glad that you're interested in tapping into the phenomenal cosmic power of Genie+! With this ticket entitlement, you'll be able to utilize the Lightning Lane entrances at certain attractions, which will save you tons of time from waiting in standby queues. There are two opportunities for guests to add Genie+ to their tickets:

    1. When purchasing your tickets from the Disneyland website, you are able to add Genie+ as an option to your entire ticket duration. After selecting the dates for your Disneyland Resort vacation, you'll be taken to a screen where you may add Genie+ as an option.
    2. If you did not add Genie+ at the time of ticket purchase, you'll still be able to purchase it on the day of your Park visit. Once you scan your ticket and enter the Park, you'll be able to purchase Genie+ for that day through the Disneyland Mobile App. Please note that quantities are limited and it is only valid for that day, so you will need to repeat the purchase for every day that you would like this option.

    With Genie+, you'll be able to get so much more done in a day, especially if you're able to Park Hop and strategically manage your time. I've also had days where I just wander the Parks and "go where the wind takes me," as my panelist friend Michelle R likes to say. Either way you plan it, you're going to have a fantastic time!

    If you have any more questions for us, please feel free to write back again anytime, Whitney! You're always welcome here at planDisney. Until next time!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
