    I am traveling in group of 5, but only two of us will be riding roller coasters. Can I add Genie+ to just those two people? The other people are elderly, special needs, or caretakers.

    Hiya Lisa!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! Oh my goodness, Lisa, your magical vacation is coming soon! Can you believe that in just a few days, you will be on your magic carpet ride on your way to a whole new world? I am so excited for you to discover all the unbelievable sights waiting for you, and I know this trip will be memorable for your family!

    I am also glad you have decided to use the new Disney Genie+ service during your upcoming vacation! Indeed, this service allows you to stay one jump ahead of the lines and make the most out of your vacation. The great news is that, yes, you can only purchase Disney Genie+ for those in your party who would like to enjoy a wider selection of attractions. On the My Disney Experience mobile app, go to the three-line menu and click on "My Genie Day." You will then be able to click on "Buy Disney Genie+ for Today" and select the members in your party who would like to use the service. Just make sure that everyone in your party, whether they want to use Disney Genie+ or not, has their theme park ticket and theme park reservations linked to their account on My Disney Experience. Also, since you will be purchasing the service on the day of your visit, I would recommend planning extra time to buy Disney Genie+ as you can start making your selections at 7 A.M., and those selections tend to fill up quickly!

    Now, Lisa, did you know that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival? This festival is one of my favourite times to visit the resort, and it includes so many activities that your whole party can enjoy together. Personally, I always love going from booth to booth to try different food options available seasonally. Some of my favourite menu items include the Street Corn at Flavor Full Kitchen and the Tostada de Chorizo over in Mexico. In addition to all the food options to discover, the festival also offers a variety of activities for all ages. One of my favourites is the Spike's Pollen-Nation Exploration scavenger hunt which takes you around the World Showcase to find Spike the Bee. Over at the United Kingdom pavilion, I would also highly recommend the English Tea Garden Self-Guided Tea Tour. You will be able to learn more about popular teas and their ingredients, and you might even receive a tasty surprise upon completion! Lastly, for a relaxing moment in nature, stop by Bambi's Butterfly House to look at beautiful species of plants and butterflies as they come out of their cocoons right in front of you!

    I hope this was helpful, Lisa, and that you and your Ohana will have the best day ever on your upcoming Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please don't hesitate to reach out. You ain't never had a friend like us!

    Have a magical day, and may all your wishes come true,
