    I am visiting disneyland in a few weeks with my child and his school. We purchased our tickets through the school for a group rate. Are we able to add the genie plus to our tickets?

    Season's greetings and welcome to planDisney, Amy. We're so glad you found us to ask this question. It won't be long until you will be skipping down Main Street, U.S.A. under all of the twinkling holiday lights. So let's make sure you're all set for your magical visit.

    Summoning Genie and the phenomenal cosmic powers of Disney Genie+ Service is a great start to having your best Disney day. You should definitely be able to add Genie+ to your tickets. However, because I'm not sure exactly what type of tickets you have, it may be helpful to also reach out to a friendly Cast Member at the Tickets phone line to confirm this. 

    I recommend adding all theme park tickets to the Disneyland app before your visit. To do this, tap on "☰" to open the menu and then tap the "Tickets and Passes" tile. Next, tap the "+" in the upper right corner followed by "Link Tickets & Passes." Here you will add all tickets by typing in each ticket ID number or scanning all of the barcodes using the "Camera" option. 

    Linking all of your tickets will allow you to easily purchase Disney Genie+ Service for anyone who wants to use it. Once all of the tickets have been scanned and you've entered the park, you can open the mobile app to purchase Genie+. There will be a banner toward the middle of the screen and once you tap on it, you will see all linked tickets for which you can purchase Disney Genie+ Service. Genie+ is available on a limited basis and pricing can vary depending on the date of your visit. The theme parks are extra busy during this time of year, so I recommend arriving as early as possible to make your purchase. Once you've added Genie+, you can immediately start booking Lightning Lane selections.

    It sounds like you will be visiting while the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort are taking place. One of the attractions I recommend booking a Lightning Lane for is "it's a small world" Holiday. The facade of the attraction is covered in lights and it's sure to get everyone in the holiday spirit. Taking this cruise is one of my traditions and something I never miss during the holiday celebration. Another holiday tradition is making sure I enjoy a Mickey Gingerbread cookie. These adorable and delectable treats can be found at Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe.

    Amy, I hope this helps as you're gearing up for your magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth. If we can help with anything else before you start off on your holly jolly journey, please come back to visit us. Here's wishing you a merry and magical visit.
