    I am unable to add Genie+ to my ticket purchase. How do I do that?

    Hello Susan,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Summer is going to fly by, and before you know it you'll be right in the middle of The World's Most Magical Celebration.

    Disney Genie+ will help you to minimize your time spent waiting in lines for popular attractions, so that you can enjoy more rides, shows, dining, and shopping. Originally, you could purchase this add on in advance for your entire trip. However, at this time guests can only purchase Genie+ on each day they visit a park. 

    On the day of your park reservation, beginning at midnight, you'll be able to upgrade your tickets to include Disney Genie+. Adding it on is easy using the My Disney Experience App on your mobile device. It only takes a couple of minutes; you'll just want to add it prior to 7:00 AM when you can make your first Lightning Lane selection for the day.

    On the home screen of your My Disney Experience App, you'll see a purple box that invites you to Purchase Genie+ for the day. On the day you have a theme park reservation, click Purchase for Today, and you'll be taken to a screen where you can select all of the people in your party who want to add the service. Confirm your party and follow the prompts for payment. It really is that simple.

    Although it may seem inconvenient to have to add it each day, it may work to your benefit. There may be some parks where you feel like you don't necessarily need Genie+ because the wait times for standby lines are manageable. I recommend looking at the Tip Boards for each park about a week or so before your trip. You'll be able to see how long the wait times are for each attraction and how quickly the Lightning Lanes get booked. That information will help you to determine which parks you want to purchase Genie+ for, as well as helping you prioritize the order in which you book your Lightning Lane return times.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
