    I purchased tickets for Disneyland how do I add the genie lightning Lane

    Hi there, Rhea!

    You are definitely on the right track with expanding the magic of your visit to the Disneyland Resort. The complimentary Disney Genie service and the add-on Disney Genie+ service are both great ways to enhance your visit.

    The Disney Genie+ service can be purchased either at the same time as you purchase your Disneyland Resort theme park tickets or on the day of your visit after you use your tickets to enter a theme park. To purchase Genie+ on the day of your visit, tap the “Purchase for Today” button on the home screen of the Disneyland mobile app.

    With the Disney Genie+ service added to your tickets, you can unlock access to Lightning Lane queues for shorter wait times at select attractions. To book a Lightning Lane return time, your ticket must first be activated for the day at a theme park entrance. Then, after you have entered a park, visit the Tip Board from the ☰ feature menu of the Disneyland app. On the Disney Genie Service Tip Board screen, find a Lightning Lane attraction you wish to experience. The box with the “LL” Lightning Lane logo will show the next available time to book. Tap that box to begin booking your return time. You will be prompted to select the tickets to include with the return time reservation. As you confirm your selections, if you haven’t yet purchased the Genie+ service, you will also be prompted to purchase the service for the tickets at that time. Adding Genie+ is a one-time purchase for each day.

    There are also a few attractions with Lightning Lane queues that aren’t included with Genie+. Return times to these Individual Lightning Lane experiences may also be purchased from the Tip Board in the app. On the Tip Board, the Lightning Lane information boxes will indicate if the attraction is included with Genie+ or if it is an Individual Lightning Lane.

    Tony’s Tip: When you purchase the Genie+ service, there is also more wonderful magic included besides access to Lightning Lanes. My favorite is the complimentary downloads of all of your Disney PhotoPass photos. And I can’t wait to try out the new Disney PhotoPass Lenses augmented reality experiences on our next visit. Finally, if you want your own virtual tour guide, the Audio Tales included with your Genie+ purchase are packed with stories and details about The Happiest Place on Earth!

    I hope you have a magical time at the Disneyland Resort, Rhea!
