    How do I upgrade my park tickets to a fast pass please

    Hello, Emma! 

    Thank you for bringing a question to us here at planDisney. I’m happy to hear you’re planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort!

    It sounds like you’re interested in Disney Genie+ service, which allows you to select arrival windows for Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane entrances at select attractions in both theme parks and reduces your time spent waiting in line. There are two ways to purchase it. The first is before your visit as an add-on when buying your theme park ticket. If you already have your ticket and didn’t purchase Disney Genie+ at that time, you can purchase it separately on the day of your visit (pending availability) after entering either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park

    To add Disney Genie+ on the day of your visit to the parks, open the Disneyland mobile app after your ticket is scanned at the main entrance of a theme park. You should see a banner on the home screen advertising Disney Genie+ with a “Purchase” button. If you don’t see this, click the three stacked lines icon near the bottom right of your screen and then select the tile that reads “Rides, Shows & Lightning Lane Entry.” Tap “Purchase for Today” and then click “Get Disney Genie+ Service.” 

    You’ll then select your park ticket and the tickets for any other Guests in your group who will use Disney Genie+ that day (as long as they have already entered a theme park as well). After your purchase is complete, you’ll be able to dive right in and select your first Lightning Lane return time for the attraction of your choice! The return times are based on the current stand-by wait time for each attraction. 

    I hope this helps you plan, Emma, and that your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth is a dream come true! Please write back if you have more questions for us before your vacation begins.

    Wishing you magic,
