    Hi, I have a question i hope you could help answer ☺️ if there are 9 members connected in my genie plus, when we make rsvp, do all the 9 members must go to the same rides? Or can we separate into 2 groups, making rsvp for 2 different rides?

    Hi there, Nina!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks so much for your question. I often visit the Disneyland Resort with a larger group, and we love using Disney Genie+ Service! 

    Disney Genie+ Service gives guests the chance to use Lightning Lanes to enjoy shorter waits for some of the most popular rides in the parks. Each guest who purchases Disney Genie+ is allowed to use the Lightning Lane for each attraction once that day so use those wishes, I mean Lightning Lanes, wisely!

    Each time you use the Disneyland Mobile App to select a Lightning Lane return time you will have the option to choose who in your group wants to be included in that reservation. So if you decide to split up into different groups that's no problem! Just select your group members carefully while you make your Lightning Lane selections, and know that you only get to use the Lightning Lane once per person for each attraction that day.

    A quick tip for you for using Lightning Lanes: set an alarm on your phone so you know when it's time to make your next selection! You can choose a new Lightning Lane as soon as you use the one you currently have, OR you can choose a new Lightning Lane 2 hours after you selected your current one. Whichever comes first! For example:

    • At 9:00 AM I reserve a Lightning Lane for Space Mountain and the return time for me to ride is 9:50 AM. As soon as I check in at Space Mountain I can make a new Lightning Lane selection!
    • At 10:00 AM (once I checked in for Space Mountain) I made a new Lightning Lane selection for Indiana Jones Adventure and the return time for me to ride is 12:30 PM. Because my return time is more than 2 hours from when I'm making the selection, I can get a new Lightning Lane at 12:00 PM. That's when I set my alarm so I can make a new reservation as soon as possible!
    Every time you make a selection you'll be able to choose anyone in your party who is eligible (meaning they have purchased Disney Genie+ and have not used a Lightning Lane on that attraction yet that day). It's pretty easy! Just communicate with your party so everyone knows the plan.

    I really love visiting the Disneyland Resort with a large group, Nina! I think you are going to have an amazing time together. Don't forget to stop by Mickey's Toontown to take a group picture with the big cheese himself!

    Keep moving forward!
