    We have never used the Genie + How do we use the Genie + for the kids that don' have a cell phone? Do we sign on the Genie + app using one person log in if not how do we change the name on the app? Thanks Reed

    Hey there, Reed! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question!

    Before you know it, you'll be arriving at The Most Magical Place on Earth, ready to begin your pixie-dusted adventure! How exciting! While Walt Disney World Resort has so many Resort hotel activities, amazing pools and fabulous dining experiences, the name of the game is maximizing theme park time and attractions. In my opinion, the way to do as many attractions as possible while waiting in line as little as possible is to arrive at the parks early and utilize the new Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane options, so, I'm happy to help you maximize your magic!

    Once you're ready for the Genie to begin granting your wish for the best Disney day, one person will log in to the My Disney Experience app, click the "My Genie Day" tab, and then the "Get Started Now" button. After selecting the date and park, the Genie will then summon your family and friends, and you will check off everyone in your Family & Friends list who will be riding on the magic carpet with you that day. One person can make the attraction arrival time window selections for the entire party; there is no need for the kiddos or anyone else to log in to help make the selections. Just make sure that everyone in your travel party is linked on your Family & Friends list, and you will be ready to unleash Genie's phenomenal cosmic power!

    I'd suggest being on the My Disney Experience app, ready to make your Genie+ selections right at 7 a.m. EST and make your first selection for one of your must-do attractions at the earliest arrival time window. That way, you can make your next selection as soon as you tap into the Lightning Lane entrance and can continue to use this strategy throughout the day to make multiple selections and maximize Genie's power and the magic of your Disney day!

    Reed, I'm wishing you and your family THE most magical upcoming Disney adventure! Stop by any time with any of your vacation planning questions. You ain't never had a friend like me!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
