    Can I purchase Genie plus for other 'Friends and 'Family' going with me that made reservations separately? We have 2 other groups going now, and want to all ride together when possible.

    Hello there Chance!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you so much for sending us this magical question today! I am so excited that you will be trying out the new Disney Genie+ service on your upcoming Disney vacation. With Disney Genie+, there is truly a whole new world of possibilities for you to discover, and you don't even have to rub a magic lamp!

    You can certainly purchase the Disney Genie+ service for other members of your party if they are in your Family & Friends List already. I am impressed, Chance, as you were already one jump ahead! Since the rest of your party is already in your Family & Friends List, there are two ways you can purchase the Disney Genie+ service. If they have not purchased their tickets yet, Disney Genie+ can be added as an "add-on" upon checkout. Otherwise, you will be able to select all members of your party when you are ready to purchase Disney Genie+ on the day of your visit! Open your My Disney Experience mobile app and go into the "My Genie Day" section. Since you will be able to start making ride selections at 7 a.m. EST, I would suggest planning extra time to purchase the Disney Genie+ service for your whole party, just in case. Also, make sure that everyone in your party has their theme park tickets and theme park reservations linked to their profile so that you can select them when purchasing Disney Genie+. And voilà! You will be all set to make ride selections for your whole party!

    Don't forget to do as Aladdin, Chance, and use your three wishes! In the "My Genie Day" section, you will be able to use the complimentary Disney Genie service. Indeed, under the "My Day" tab, click on "Get Started Now" and let Genie create the perfect itinerary for you based on your interests and real-time data! As for Lightning Lanes, you don't have to stick to the selections you can make with your Disney Genie+ service! By clicking on the "Tip Board" tab, you will be able to see Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane selections and Individual Lightning Lanes. You can hold Individual Lightning Lanes simultaneously as your Disney Genie+ selections to truly get the most out of your vacation. Just remember that Disney Genie+ is one payment of $15 per person per day (prices are subject to change), while Individual Lightning Lane prices vary per attraction. 

    I hope this was helpful, Chance, and that you and your loved ones will have the best day ever on your upcoming magic carpet ride! If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please don't hesitate to reach out. We may not be Genies, but you ain't never had a friend like us! 

    Have a magical day,
