    My 3 teenagers (14, 14, and 17) are going to WDW on a school trip and would like Genie +. I understand we can't add a credit card to their accounts bc they are under 18. Can I buy the Genie + service for them on my account if I'm not at Disney?

    Hi Elyse, welcome to planDisney!

    You are handling the fact that your children are going to Walt Disney World Resort without you extremely well. I'd probably be binge-watching Happily Ever After videos or eating my weight in Mickey ice cream bars. Since you are taking the more mature route, I'll rise to the occasion as I answer your important question about being your children's magical wingmate during their trip.

    Your children will be excited to hear that mom's magic wand reaches from Connecticut to Florida. Anytime after 12:00 a.m. each park day, you can purchase Disney Genie+ service for your teenagers via the Tip Board of your My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the home page --> Tip Board). More specifically, you can purchase Disney Genie+ service for anyone on your Family & Friends List that has valid admission and a theme park reservation linked to their My Disney Experience account or account profile. Part of the Genie+ purchase process asks you to confirm your party, which is where your children's names will appear for selection, even if you are "Not Eligible." Once your party is confirmed, you can purchase Disney Genie+ service for all three children in one transaction. I recommend purchasing by 6:45 a.m. each park day; please tell your kids to maximize the magic of your purchase by booking their first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m. sharp. In terms of repayment, I think a Mickey krispie treat from Main Street Confectionery is a reasonable request, in addition to copious amounts of pictures. 

    When you're ready to plan your next Disney vacation, Elyse, be sure to planDisney!
