    I am trying to add genie+ to my husband and kids tickets that we have already purchased. How do I do that?

    Welcome to planDisney, Kevin!

    Can you believe your Walt Disney World Resort vacation begins next week?  I'm sure you must be so excited to take part in The World's Most Magical Celebration.

    Disney Genie+ service helps Guests get more out of their vacation by allowing them to reserve Lightning Lane access to over 40 rides and attractions.  There are two ways in which Guests can purchase Disney Genie+ service.

    Guests can purchase tickets that include Disney Genie+.  If you purchased your tickets without this option, you can try modifying your tickets to add Disney Genie+.  Find your "Tickets and Passes" in your My Disney Experience account on the website under "My Plans" or in the My Disney Experience app by using the menu button in the lower right corner of the home screen.  Look for the option to "Change Ticket", make your selections, and follow the steps to checkout and complete your purchase.  Disney Genie+ will be added to all days of a multi-day ticket.  Depending on what type of tickets you hold and where they were purchased, you may not be given the option to change your tickets -- Hakuna Matata, no worries!  I have over a dozen tickets linked to my account and none of them have this option.

    All Guests with linked admission and Disney Park Pass reservations may purchase Disney Genie+ via the My Disney Experience mobile app on the date they plan to use it.  To purchase Disney Genie+ for same-day use, use the menu button to select “My Genie Day” and scroll down a bit to the purple banner where you see “Get Disney Genie+ for Today”.  It will just take a few moments to complete your purchase and you should be all set.  Since Guests may reserve their first Lightning Lane attraction beginning at 7:00 am, I recommend purchasing Disney Genie+ a few minutes prior to 7:00.

    Kevin, I found on my recent trip that I didn't really need Disney Genie+ service every day of my visit, so I actually preferred the option to choose each day whether or not I wanted to purchase it.  I will say that Disney Genie+ works really well when park hopping.  If you'll have admission that includes the Park Hopper Option, you can reserve attractions at the theme park you plan to hop to -- Disney Genie+ will automatically assign a return time after 2:00 pm when park hopping hours begin.

    I hope that helps!  If you need more information or have any additional questions, please feel free to visit planDisney again anytime.  Have a wonderful vacation!
