    My son(13 years) and I will be visiting the week after Christmas. If he has his on My Disney Experience account will he be able to join virtual lines or make lightning lane selections once I purchase Genie+?

    Hi Gina, 

    It's great to see you back planning Disney at planDisney! Our name may have changed since your last visit, but we're still a group of Guests helping Guests plan and execute magical Disney vacations.

    Having a tech-savvy teen with their own My Disney Experience account can be quite an asset during your park days at Walt Disney World Resort. Keep in mind that Guests ages 13-17 can't add a payment method to their account, which means they cannot purchase Disney Genie+ service or place a Mobile Food and Beverage Order. They can, however, perform tasks in the My Disney Experience mobile app that do not require payment.

    As long as your son has valid admission and a theme park reservation for EPCOT, he can use his My Disney Experience account to join the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Similarly, as long as he has valid admission, a theme park reservation, and Disney Genie+ service linked to his account, he can make Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations throughout the day. In fact, he can complete these tasks for anyone on his Family and Friends List, which includes you! You've worked hard getting you and your son to the parks; enjoy letting him sit in the driver's seat during your park days.

    You can purchase Disney Genie+ any time after midnight each park day via the Tip Board of the My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the home page --> Tip Board). I recommend purchasing by 6:45 a.m. so you and/or your son can book the first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m. On your EPCOT day, if you are unable to secure a Boarding Group for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at 7:00 a.m., you can try again at 1:00 p.m. as long as you are inside the park.

    Come back and see us at planDisney again real soon, Gina.

    Choose magic,
