    Regarding the Fast Pass or the Premium Access for the tickets, I was wondering if it’s only available to pur hase once we enter disney land, or would it be possible to purchase it on the day itself once we go there

    Hello, Jaymer! 

    I’m so glad you stopped by planDisney to ask us a question, and I hope you’re getting excited about your visit to the Disneyland Resort. It’s just around the pixie-dusted corner!

    It sounds like you’re interested in Disney Genie+, which allows you to select arrival windows for Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane entrances at select attractions in the theme parks to reduce the time you spend waiting in line. There are two ways to purchase this optional service. The first is before your visit as an add-on when buying your theme park tickets. If you already have your tickets and didn’t purchase Disney Genie+ at that time, you may be able to buy it separately through the Disneyland mobile app on the day of your visit (pending availability) after your tickets are scanned for entry at the turnstiles of Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park

    To add Disney Genie+ on the day of your visit to the parks, open the Disneyland app after you enter a theme park for the first time. You should see a banner on the home screen advertising Disney Genie+ with a “Purchase” button. If you don’t see this, click the three stacked lines icon near the bottom right of your screen and then select the tile that reads “Rides, Shows & Lightning Lane Entry.” Tap “Purchase for Today” and then click “Get Disney Genie+ Service.” 

    You’ll then select your park ticket and the tickets for any other Guests in your group who will use Disney Genie+ that day as long as they have already entered a theme park as well. After your purchase is complete, you can immediately select your first Lightning Lane return time for an available attraction! Please keep in mind that the return times are based on the current stand-by wait time for each attraction. 

    I hope this information helps, Jaymer, and that your vacation at the Happiest Place on Earth is all you’ve been dreaming of! Please write back if you have more questions as your trip approaches.

    Wishing you magic,
