    How much is the Thing where you can get onto rides right away. I don’t know what it’s called and I’m not sure how to add it to my stuff

    Hi Angela! Welcome to planDisney!

    As my favorite Little Mermaid sings,

    "I've got gadgets and gizmos aplenty, I've got whosits and whatsits galore.  You want thingamabobs? I got twenty! But who cares? No big deal? I want more"

    And from what you've mentioned I THINK what you want is Disney's Genie+ Service!

    If you've ever visited Walt Disney World Resort before you might have used the FastPass system to maximize your time in the Theme Parks by getting return times for rides and attractions and then skipping the line when you got back.  Disney's Genie+ Service runs in the same vein but is also jam-packed with other ways to plan your days, beat the crowds, and spend every minute of your trip soaking up the magic! 

    The complimentary Genie Service is available to Guests just by logging into your My Disney Experience account. Click "Summon Disney Genie" to input your party's interests and get an itinerary that was made just for you! It even changes as you ride and dine throughout your day, updating with new ideas as you make your way through the Parks.  

    To get on rides and attractions without much of a wait you'll want to take advantage of Disney Genie+.  With Disney's Genie+ Service you'll use the "Lightning Lane" entrances to pass by the long lines! If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel you'll be able to log on to Genie+ at 7 a.m. to make your first Lightning Lane selection. You'll choose an arrival window to stop back and get on your favorite attractions with little to no wait! As of right now, Disney's Genie+ is $15 (plus tax) per Guest, per day, but prices are subject to change. 

    You can even choose the "Individual Lightning Lane" option, which allows you to purchase a Lightning Lane for some of the most popular attractions in the Parks. Prices differ depending on Park and attraction. You can do this even if you do not want to purchase Genie+ for the entire day.  With so many options, you're sure to mix and match to create a day that is perfect for your family.  

    These magical services are easy to find right in your My Disney Experience account or on your My Disney Experience Mobile app.  Since you'll want to continue making Lightning Lane choices throughout your day, you'll definitely want to have the mobile app so you can summon your Genie whenever you need it! Once on the mobile app, you'll see the banner for Disney Genie Service right on top.  Click "View My Day" to start using the complimentary Genie or click the purple "Genie+" button to purchase it for the day!  Genie+ is great because you can purchase it day by day, maybe choosing to use it at Magic Kingdom Park but not at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  To me, it seems like the service works really well to benefit all who use it by letting everyone personalize their vacation. 

    Even though you've "never had a friend" like Genie+, I think you'll find that once you start using it the service walks you through the steps to planning the
