    I am trying to add Genie + to my existing tickets but it doesn't give me an option to.

    Hiya Jonathon - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question about Disney's Genie+ service! I'm so excited for you to visit and make magical memories at the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration - there are exciting new attractions, entertainment, treats, and so much more!

    Adding Genie+ to your Theme Park tickets is a great way to maximize the magic at Walt Disney World Resort's four Theme Parks! While some tickets can be purchased with Genie+ included at the time of purchase, doing so requires you to purchase Genie+ for all days of your park tickets for all Guests. Also, while some tickets have the option to be modified to add Genie+ in advance, there are limitations, and to be honest, I'm still getting used to the new system too! The good news is that if you only plan to use Genie+ on certain days of a multi-day ticket, only for certain Guests in your party, or if a member of your party is using an Annual Pass or an existing Theme Park ticket that can't be modified to add Genie+ in advance, it's simple and quick to add Genie+ on the day you want to use it!

    In fact, I actually prefer taking this route regardless of our crew's needs - let me explain why. First, there are currently no savings for purchasing Genie+ in advance. You may also decide that you don't need it on some days, or perhaps someone in your party doesn't need it because they don't plan on experiencing certain attractions. In these situations, adding Genie+ each day can help with budgeting, and it's super convenient to do!

    To add Genie+ to your tickets, open the My Disney Experience Mobile App any time after 12:00 a.m. (midnight) on days you wish to use it. On the home screen, tap My Day, or tap the menu icon in the lower right corner (three horizontal lines, sometimes called a sandwich or stack menu icon), and then tap My Genie Day. Just scroll down a bit and tap the purple bar that says Get Disney Genie+ for Today. From there you can select any linked Friends & Family with valid Theme Park tickets and Park Pass Reservations for that day, and purchase Genie+ for those in your party that want to use it that day. Once that's done, starting at 7 a.m. you can make your first Genie+ Lightning Lane selection to enjoy access to a shorter line queue on your favorite attractions!

    I hope this helps your planning for your trip later this month. Please let me know if any other questions pop up that I can help with!
