    How do I purchase Genie + tickets

    Hey howdy hey, Nicole! You’ve got a friend in me at planDisney!

    Your getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth is just a few weeks away… time to get excited! I’m so glad to hEAR that you’d like to experience the cosmic power of Disney Genie+ Service at the Disneyland Resort – it’s a great way to make the most of your Disney days. So, there are two ways to purchase Genie+ -- you can either add it to your ticket purchase on Disneyland.com, or you can add it to your ticket on a daily basis by using the Disneyland app after arriving inside either of the theme parks. 

    If you haven’t purchased theme park tickets yet, here’s the process you’ll follow: First, select the type of ticket you’d like to purchase, and the number of days. Next, select the number of tickets, and then choose between a One Park Per Day ticket and a Park Hopper ticket. Now, you’ll reserve your ticket dates and select your parks. The next step is titled, “Add Convenience to Your Day,” and this is where you’ll find the option to add Disney Genie+ Service to your ticket. By adding Genie+ at this step of your ticket transaction, you will receive Genie+ for every day of your visit. 

    If you’d prefer to add Genie+ to select days of your trip, then I recommend waiting and purchasing it upon arrival in the theme parks. If you choose this option, here’s what you’ll do: As soon as your tickets are scanned and you’ve entered Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park, open the home screen of your Disneyland app. From there, tap on the three lines in the lower-right corner. Select “My Genie Day” and look for “Get Disney Genie+ for Today.” Now, tap “Get Disney Genie+ Service,” and you’ll be prompted to select which tickets are eligible to add Genie+ for that day. Simply select the tickets you’d like to add the service to, and you’re all set!

    As soon as this transaction is complete, you can go ahead and book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane. Choose from about 18 attractions between the two theme parks, if you have Park Hopper tickets. Just keep in mind that you won’t be able to “hop” to the other park until after 1:00 PM.

    In addition, as part of your Genie+ purchase, you’ll receive unlimited downloads of your Disney PhotoPass pictures from the day, which is a huge perk! Keep your eyes peeled for PhotoPass opportunities at Character dining locations and on some attractions, too.

    Here's the Entertainment Schedule for your arrival day, so you can start mapping out your magical plans. Please stop by with any additional questions, Nicole… we’re all EARs!

    See ya’ real soon,
