    I have purchased one day tickets to Magic Kingdom and I'm trying to add on Genie+ to the tickets but it's not letting me online. I'm able to click on add Genie but cannot go any further from there. What do I need to do to add on?

    Hi Megan! Welcome back to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your latest question!

    You must be getting excited about your upcoming visit to Magic Kingdom Park. There are a few experiences that will be returning just in time for your trip. The Festival of Fantasy Parade will make its royal return on March 9th! This parade holds one of my core memories from the first time I brought my daughters a few years back. It was great watching their eyes light up as their favorite characters went by dancing to the music. It's such a joyous event! You'll also find the return of Cinderella Castle stage shows. Mickey's Magical Friendship Faire will have shows throughout the day and plenty of chances to catch while you're exploring the park. You'll see some classic characters and princesses mixed with some of your new favorites!

    I'm excited you are planning to use Disney Genie+ for your Magic Kingdom day! I found it to be an essential service to purchase on our most recent trip to help maximize the most out of our day. With the number of attractions that are offered as part of Disney Genie+, you'll be able to bypass the standby queue on quite a large amount of rides. The strategy that my family found most useful was for each person to choose one or two rides that were absolute must-ride attractions. Then as your day progresses, you'll have a general idea of which attractions to target for your Disney Genie+ selections.

    Disney recently made a change to single-day tickets and Disney Genie+. You can no longer purchase the service before the day of your visit. You will need to log on to your My Disney Experience account the day of your park visit and purchase then. To do so, starting at midnight, use your mobile device to log on to the app. Once there, select the three horizontal bars on the bottom right of your screen and then select "My Genie Day". Then in the purple bar, select "Get Disney Genie+ for Today". Follow the prompts from here to select each member of your party that will be using the service on that day. You'll be able to make your first selection starting at 7 AM that morning. 

    Megan, I hope you have an amazing day being part of the World's Most Magical Celebration!

    See ya real soon!
