    Can you upgrade to genie + when you are at the park if you purchased a normal ticket?

    Hiya, pal!

    You betcha, Sara! Regular theme park tickets may be enhanced with the Disney Genie+ service during your visit to the Disneyland Resort. This is done on a day-by-day basis after you have used the tickets to enter a theme park each day. Simply use the Disneyland app to purchase Genie+ for as many of the tickets linked to your Disneyland account as you’d like. Then, sit back and let your personal Disneyland Resort Genie add even more magic to your day by allowing you to reserve access to the Lightning Lane queues of select attractions. Also, as a Disneyland Resort exclusive, Disney Genie+ includes complimentary downloads of all of your Disney PhotoPass taken that day, including attraction photos.

    Guests who purchase their Disneyland Resort theme park tickets with Genie+ already included will have access to the service for every day of their tickets. For tickets that don’t include Genie+ at the time of purchase, Guests may choose to add the service to their tickets on any or all of the days the tickets are used.

    My family and I recently took the drive down I-15 from our home in Utah to spend five magical days at the Disneyland Resort. We purchased Genie+ two of the five days of our visit to the theme parks. We chose to use one of those days to focus on Disneyland Park and the other day to focus on Disney California Adventure Park. We also happened to have Park Hopper tickets. So, on our Disney California Adventure Park day with Genie+, we hopped over to Disneyland Park to take advantage of some Lightning Lane opportunities there as well. All along the way, we collected several PhotoPass photos to capture the memories we made.

    It’s been a pleasure answering your question, Sara. I hope you’ll stop by planDisney again with any more questions you may have about your upcoming visit to The Happiest Place on Earth!
