    I purchased park tickets for Disneyworld. However, I have not been able to add Genie+. I've followed the message boards but when I get to the part that says "change options," I don't have that in my app. I've refreshed it.

    Hi there, Heidi!  And welcome back!  While our name may have changed since the last time you visited us with your questions, we are still here to provide our best advice and tips for planning Disney vacations.

    Heidi, I am in the same boat as you.  Despite having quite a few tickets linked to my profile and those of my Family & Friends in My Disney Experience, none of the tickets are showing me the option to change or modify the ticket to add Disney Genie+.

    Disney Genie+ can be purchased daily through the My Disney Experience app, beginning at midnight on the date you would like to use it.  Since the first Lightning Lane attraction with Genie+ can be reserved at 7:00 am, I am planning on completing my purchase around 6:45 or so.  I already have a credit card stored as a payment method in my profile, so this should only take a couple of minutes.

    If you would like to add Disney Genie+ for the entire length of your ticket, stop by a Guest Relations location or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs to see if you can upgrade your tickets to include this option.  I have actually decided to only purchase Genie+ for the days of my trip when I plan to visit a lot of attractions -- there are some days that I am primarily focused on enjoying the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts.  I'll put my savings from not buying Genie+ on those days towards yummy 50th Anniversary Celebration snacks!

    If you have any additional questions, please stop by planDisney again anytime.  We are always happy to help.  Wishing you a wonderful vacation!
