    How do i upgrade my tickets so they include lighting lane

    Greetings, Jennifer!

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so excited to see that you have a summertime adventure planned at The Most Magical Place on Earth. Get ready to experience the EARidescent magic of The World's Most Magical Celebration. This 50th Anniversary event will still be going strong when you arrive. The new Beacons of Magic light up the parks each evening, and make a great family photo op. Be sure to check them out!

    Jennifer, to include Lightning Lane you need to add Disney Genie+ to your Walt Disney World vacation package or theme park tickets. This can be accomplished in two different ways. You can modify your current vacation or ticket package in My Disney Experience to include this option. Log in to your account on the Walt Disney World website to start the modifications. Select the My Plans option from the My Disney Experience drop-down menu, located on the top right side of the screen. Next to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel information, you will see a link titled "Change Reservation". Select this to change your tickets on the next page. There will be a blue "Change" link under Theme Park Tickets that will give you the option to add Disney Genie+. If you have tickets that are not part of a vacation package, select the Tickets & Memory Maker option under My Plans. Choose the ticket or tickets that you wish to modify and add the Genie+ option. Then, poof! You will have access to Lightning Lane entry during each of your park days. No magic lamp is required. When adding this service in advance you will need to purchase it for the duration of your stay.

    If you would like to add this service for individual days due to your itinerary plans, you can do so on the day of your park entrance. This can be done in the My Disney Experience app. First, tap the three bars on the bottom right side of the screen. Then, choose the My Genie Day option. There will be a bright purple banner in the middle of the screen that says "Get Genie+ for Today". This option works great when there are some days that you do not plan on using the service. 

    Once you have added Disney Genie+ you will be able to make Lightning Lane selections at 7 A.M. each day that you have the service. There are more than 40 experiences to choose from. After you use your Lightning Lane pass for an attraction you can choose another, and another, and..well you get the idea. This upgrade saves you a ton of time by avoiding traditional stand-by queue wait times. 

    I hope that this information helps you add Disney Genie+ easily, so you can use the wonderful features throughout your adventure.
    We'll see ya real soon!
