    There is 14 of using going to Disney and looking to buy the Genie+. Will it only allow me to select 12? If so how will I be able to select the whole party? Can someone else log into my account or will they need to create another account?

    Hello Claire, welcome to planDisney!

    Your visit to Walt Disney World Resort is coming up so soon! It’s great that you are planning and getting familiar with your My Disney Experience mobile app and the Disney Genie+ service. Don’t you wish there was a Lightning Lane to your vacation? 

    When you purchase Genie+ service, you can purchase for any accounts you manage, such as accounts for kids or any other family members. You can have a max number of 12 guests in your Genie+ party. I recommend that you divide your group into two parties and make your Lightning Lane selections in those groups. This would require someone else in your group to make a My Disney Experience account and be added to your Family & Friends List so they can also make plans for your visit to Walt Disney World Resort. 

    My fellow panelist Nimmy T. had some great tips for making Lightning Lane selections with large groups. She suggests that you designate two members of your party who are familiar with how to make Lightning Lane selections and can move quickly to be in charge of making selections. I also recommend having a loose plan of what you’d like to accomplish on your theme park day. That way, when it’s time to make your next Lightning Lane selection, you aren’t wasting time debating which attraction to book and instead you’ll already know which attractions you want to prioritize. 

    If the two groups make their Lightning Lane selections but the times aren’t the same, try speaking to the Cast Member stationed at the Lightning Lane entrance. If the Lightning Lane return times are reasonably close, they may allow your whole party to enter together. This is not guaranteed, but it never hurts to ask! 

    I hope this was helpful, Claire. If you have any future questions, please visit me again at planDisney!
