    Traveling with a family of 4. If we purchase geniue +, I was told we need to make a reservation for all rides to access the Lightning lanes. Can I make 1 reservation for all 4 of us or do we have to each make individual reservations per family member?

    Hi there, Amanda! Welcome to planDisney!

    Your Walt Disney World vacation is coming up so very soon! I'm glad you're getting all of your plans in order now. The addition of Disney Genie, Disney Genie+ and the Lightning Lane has taken some time for Guests to conquer! As Judy Hopps says, "life is a lot more complicated than a slogan on a bumper sticker!" But, don't let that deter you. These new additions to Walt Disney World will certainly work to your advantage during your stay!

    Great news, Amanda! If you purchase Disney Genie+ for all members of your party, you can make the reservations for everyone at once. If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you're able to make your first Disney Genie+ selection at 7 a.m. EST on the day you'll visit that attraction. You'll be given the first available arrival window to access the Lightning Lane. Once you scan into that ride, you'll be able to make your next selection. Repeat this process throughout the day to continue accessing your favorite rides through the speedier Lightning Lane.

    In order to make the selections for your entire party, you will want to make sure that the other members of your group have plans that are managed by you (usually the case with children) or that their My Disney Experience account is linked to yours.

    When the day comes to make your Disney Genie+ selections, open the My Disney Experience app and click the menu button in the bottom right corner. Choose "My Genie Day." Here, you're able to tell the Genie all of your preferences in order to help it plan your day! When the clock hits 7 a.m. EST (for Disney Resort Hotel Guests) or at the time the park opens, an option will appear to make your first Disney Genie+ reservation. You'll be prompted to select the Guests within your Friends & Family list for whom you're making the reservation. You'll then be whisked off on a magic carpet ride! The destination? The Lightning Lane!

    I hope I've helped guide the way on using Disney Genie+ during your vacation! Your trip times up nicely with the start of the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, one of the most beautiful times of the year at the Walt Disney World Resort! When you're not zooming through the Lightning Lane at Test Track and Soarin' Around the World, be sure to check out what's blooming at the Festival! The Garden Rocks Concert Series located in the World Showcase is sure to add some extra energy to your day!

    Happy planning, Amanda!
