    Can I select individual members of my party for an attraction using Genie+ or can I only select all of them?

    Hiya Matt,
    Welcome to planDisney. Disney Genie and Genie+ services are out of the bottle and it sounds like you're ready to unleash their phenomenal cosmic powers for your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort! My family ran into a similar question about making Lightning Lane reservations for select members of our party during a recent multigenerational visit to The World's Most Magical Celebration and I'd love to share our experience with you.

    After purchasing Genie+ service, you can make your first Lightning Lane selection in the My Disney Experience mobile app for members of your Family and Friends List that have also purchased the service beginning at 7:00 a.m.  With over 40 attractions throughout the four theme parks to choose from, there's something to suit every Disney adventurer's palate.  If the entire party does not wish to experience a particular attraction, or if the party wishes to split up and experience two separate attractions, it is possible to select specific members of your party during the "Confirm Your Party" step of the Lightning Lane reservation process.  When booking separate attractions, you'll want the arrival windows to match as closely as possible so everyone will be eligible for their next Lightning Lane reservation at roughly the same time.  My family chose a third option, which was to select everyone in our party for every attraction, even if not everyone was riding. For example, we made a Lightning Lane reservation at The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios for six, but Nana and Grandpa decided not to check into The Hollywood Tower Hotel.  To keep everyone on the same Lightning Lane reservation timeline, we took Nana and Grandpa's MagicBands with us to scan in at the attraction, even though they weren't riding.  After scanning our MagicBands at the second touchpoint, we were able to make the next Lightning Lane reservation for our entire party.   

    Once a Lightning Reservation has been made, it can be viewed on both the "Tip Board" and "My Day" sections of the My Disney Experience app.  There's even an option to add another Guest if someone changes their mind about riding a particular attraction, depending on availability. Lighting Lane Reservations can also be modified or canceled at any time.  

    I hope you have a phenomenal time during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, Matt.  Be sure to check out the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts that will be serving up creative masterpieces during your visit.

    Have a magical day,
