    Hi, We have purchased 3 day park hopper tickets but want to add Genie+ to them. We are in NZ so the Disneyland app says we can't do it on the app unless we are in US or Canada. How do we add Genie + ?

    Aloha, Mary! I'm craving some DOLE Whip® today, so I hope you don't mind stepping into the Enchanted Tiki Room as we talk through your question! The glee club is up from a siesta, and I know José, Michael, Pierre, and Fritz have some sound advice on adding Genie+ to your tickets. 

    Guests have two opportunities to add Genie+ to their Disneyland Resort theme park tickets - you lucky people, you! The first is at the time of purchase as part of the check-out process on the Disneyland website. If you already have your tickets in hand, the second opportunity will be once you scan into the Main Entrance Gates at either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park on your park day. This is the case for every Guest no matter where they are based. In this second scenario, you would add Genie+ to your tickets daily with just a few taps within the Disneyland Mobile App!

    As soon as a Cast Member scans your ticket, navigate to the homepage of your mobile app and look for a purple box that says "Disney Genie+ Service". You will see a button with the option to "Purchase". If tickets for everyone in your party are linked to your account, you will be able to purchase Genie+ for all Guests at once, making for a pretty smooth magic carpet ride. While all the birds sing words and the flowers croon, you'll be thanking the one and only Genie for access to 20 Lighting Lanes across both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park! 

    I always like to make sure friends are aware of some additional pixie-dusted perks that come along with an upgrade to Genie+! You will have access to unlimited downloads of ALL the Disney PhotoPass photos taken each day that you have Genie+. This includes attraction photos, Magic Shots, and traditional photos taken in front of park icons like Sleeping Beauty Castle and Cars Land. A picture is worth a thousand words ... and in this case, holds many magical memories! If you're looking for some entertainment while you're in a Lightning Lane or standby queue, be sure to check out the Disney PhotoPass Lenses accessible in the mobile app. You might find Minnie or Grogu on your shoulder or you may turn into the Genie himself! My family had a blast playing around with these augmented-reality lenses. The best part is that they are always changing, so fun new surprises await!

    Our time together is getting shorter and shorter, and I hope you've enjoyed the beauty and magic of the Enchanted Tiki Room today! What I love most about spots like this at the Happiest Place on Earth is the charm wrapped up in instant nostalgia. It's just like stepping back in time to the Disneyland of 1963 - Walt's Disneyland - and seeing how it all began. These birds of paradise are some of the original audio-animatronics that paved the way for so many beloved attractions like Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion and left a legacy of magic that we all still enjoy today. As you make your way towards the exit, be sure to grab a snack at The Tropical Hideaway and look for the fine-featured (and rogue!) performer Rosita! Word has it she's embarking on a solo career!! 

    If you have any more questions, we are always here for you at planDisney.

    Farewell and aloha!

Hello from Philly! Disney Parks have been my heart and soul since my 3-year old feet first hit Main Street, U.S.A.
