    Can someone else access genie plus from my account so they can go on rides without me there

    Hiya Staci!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Genie+ is an absolute must for me when I'm in the Parks with my family. I want to say that my kids can't handle the long queues but in reality, the problem is me. I just like moving from one attraction to another without stopping. I purchased Genie+ and managed all the return time bookings for my family of 8 a few months ago and it was pretty easy and made for some wonderful Park days. 

    Now, to purchase Genie+ you must have a My Disney Experience Account. Anyone you are traveling with should be connected to you on your Family & Friends list and from there if you purchase Genie+ for yourself you have the option to also purchase it for others who are sharing plans with you. It is important to note that to purchase Genie+ everyone must have a Park Reservation and ticket for the day and Park you are selecting. You can only purchase Genie+ after midnight the day of and it is applied to each individual you choose to purchase for. 

    If for some reason you want to take a break but your friend wants to continue their day then they can continue to make Lightning Lane Reservations using Genie+ for themselves and anyone else in the party. There is an option to remove a person from a booking if they do not want to experience it. I had to do that for my nephew who was not interested in any of the fast-moving rides and booked him and his mom in other rides. However, if they are over the age of 13 and have a smartphone I suggest they should create their own My Disney Experience Account to make those bookings. If you allow another guest to use your My Disney Experience account and make bookings as "you" then they are also able to access your account and all the tickets, payment options, and other entitlements that are in there. It is one thing to have your spouse, partner, or immediate family have this access to your account and it is another if it is someone else. Walt Disney World states in their My Disney Experience terms and conditions that they are not responsible for any conduct that your family or friend would do with your information.

    Remember that Virtual Queues are an included part of your ticket so don't forget to grab one as they do run out! Two new thrills are included with this at two different Parks. TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise at Magic Kingdom Park and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT. Be ready at 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM to try and grab a boarding group! Park Reservations are again required to get both and you must be in the Park to even request to join a virtual queue at 1:00 PM.

    I hope this helps and that you can have a magical time very soon!
