    I saw that Genie plus is able to be added to each ticket, but I couldnt find that information, can you assist me please? I know how to add it each day but I wanted to pre pay and have it each day.

    Welcome to planDisney, Michael! Your trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is quickly approaching, so let’s get right to your Disney Genie+ question.

    As you are already aware, Genie+ is a great time saver. It allows Guests to save time waiting in attraction queues when visiting The Most Magical Place On Earth by using the Lightning Lane entrances. This, of course, is in addition to the free Disney Genie service, My Day, which helps you plan your day based on your preference selections. I frequently use the Tip Board to check estimated wait times for attractions and scope out my next snacking spot. 

    Genie+ can only be added on the day of your visit (technically, once the clock strikes midnight; more on this to come). The price will vary based on the day, park selected, and whether you intend to park hop, so unfortunately, you cannot add and pay for this service in advance. 

    To ensure you know how to add Genie+ on the day of your visit, let me walk you through that process just to be safe.  First, you will download the My Disney Experience app and have all the guests you will be purchasing Genie+ for listed in your Friends & Family list.  Then, as soon as the clock strikes midnight on the day of your visit, you can buy Genie+. Tap on the LL (Rides, Shows & Lighting Lane Entry) on the top right of the app and then “Purchase for Today to Save Time Waiting in Line” at the top of the following screen. As I stated, you can purchase at midnight, but that may not be necessary. Genie+ can sell out, so I suggest purchasing it as soon as you wake up. On my visits, I set my alarm for around 6:30 AM, make a cup of complimentary Joffrey’s coffee in my Disney Resorts Collection hotel room, step outside on my balcony, and purchase Genie+ well before the first selection window opens at 7:00 AM. Once I make my first selection, I quickly transition to jumping into a Virtual Queue, if available.

    I hope this helps, Michael. If you want suggestions on which attractions I find Lightning Lanes best used for, please ask me a question. As the self-proclaimed planDisney food and drink expert, I am happy to share some of my favorite dining and snack locations!
