    How and when can I purchase a genie pass?

    Hi Robin! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney.

    Disney's Genie+ Service is a favorite option for my family's park day. We love spending less time in queues, so we can focus more on the fun of being together in our happy place. While it is possible to add Genie+ at the time of your admission ticket purchase, you still have the option to add the service on your park day if you didn't buy in advance. I can walk you through this in a couple of quick steps! We added Genie+ on our most recent visit, and it's super easy to do.

    First, download and log into the Disneyland mobile app. It's going to be a handy tool during your park day, letting you check wait times, book your Genie+ Lightning Lane return times, scan into the parks and Lightning Lane Entrances, mobile order food & beverages from select dining locations, find Characters, and more! Familiarize yourself with the app by playing around with it before your arrival for a more seamless user experience.

    You'll be able to purchase Genie+ after scanning into the parks. If you're visiting on multiple days, you'll purchase each day after scanning in at the entrance. On the homepage of the app, you should see an option to "Purchase" Disney Genie+ Service at the top. The price is subject to change, so the price you see today on the app might be different from the day of your visit. Availability is also not guaranteed, but if you arrive early, the odds are better that Genie+ won't be sold out. Tap the "Purchase" button to begin your transaction. You'll select which Guests linked to your account will use the Genie+ Service. Select your entire group to be able to use Lightning Lane Entrances together.

    And that's it! I think you'll love the ability to book Lightning Lane return times. While you're waiting for your return window, enjoy Attractions without Lightning Lane Entrances, grab a snack, or take in the Entertainment. It gives you a lot of flexibility during your park day. Plus, currently, PhotoPass downloads are complimentary for Guests with Genie+, which is a real value! Be sure to capture all those memories. PhotoPass Photographers are very talented, and we always end up with more than a few photos we'd like to frame or use on the holiday card.

    Have a magical day!
