    I purchased passes and reservations without Genie+ but would like to add it. How can I do that?

    Hi Katherine,

    Welcome to planDisney! It's so great to get to answer a question from a fellow Arizonan. I'm a huge fan of Disney Genie+ service - especially for us out-of-towners. Not only does it give access to the Lightning Lane entrances for select attractions, but also includes other perks like unlimited Photopass digital downloads to commemorate your trip. 

    Currently, there are two periods where you're able to purchase this service. First, you can buy it as you purchase your theme park tickets, which it sounds like you already have. Second, you can purchase them as soon as you scan your tickets at an entry gate on the first day of your visit.

    While this service is subject to availability, I personally have not had an issue purchasing it when we arrive in the parks. It would certainly be helpful if you're able to arrive early on the first day of your visit, though! Then you can purchase it directly through the Disneyland mobile app.

    This should be such a fun trip for you! My family and I visited the parks in mid-July last year, and while it was nowhere near as hot as we're used to here in Arizona - it was still a pretty hot day! We just took it slow, drank lots of water, and ate lunch inside (at the Red Rose Taverne) for a cool early afternoon break. Alternatively, there are lots of fun shaded picnic spots in the newly reimagined Mickey's Toontown that would also be a great place for a mid-afternoon break!

    Thank you again for your question, Katherine. Please feel free to come back and see us here at planDisney if you think of any follow-ups we can help with.

    Have a Magical Day,
