    Visiting Disneyland soon. We have Genie+. There are 3 adults and 2 kids. I was going to have 2 adults use their phones and one a "card" then buy magicbands+ for the two kids. Is this too complicated? Should I keep it on one phone?

    Hi there Vicky, welcome to planDisney!  How exciting that you'll be visiting the "Happiest Place on Earth" soon!  

    I love that you're already planning to purchase Disney Genie+ Service, it's a must for my family every visit since it truly does save precious time with access to the Lightning Lane entrances and shorter wait times!  

    I definitely recommend linking all of your tickets together in the Disneyland app, you can do this on a mobile phone by following the below steps:

    • Access your Disneyland app and sign-in with your account
    • In the lower right-hand corner, tap the three-bar menu and then tap "Tickets and Passes"
    • Tap "Link Tickets & Passes" and then scan the barcode of each person's ticket or you can manually type in the number as well
    You can then make your Lightning Lane selections together for the entire group from any phone that has the tickets linked in the app!  You can begin making your selections as soon as you scan into the park, and I always suggest securing Lightning Lane selections for Indiana Jones Adventure and Space Mountain in Disneyland Park, those are two of the most popular attractions.  

    You can definitely purchase a MagicBand+ for each of your little Mouseketeers as a fun souvenir, but you can also just use your mobile phones to scan their Lightning Lane selections.  If you're looking to save some money for shopping, dining, or snacks, I recommend saving your money for those instead since it's not required to have a MagicBand+.  It's totally up to you!

    I hope this information is helpful for your upcoming trip Vicky!  If we can help with any other questions you may have, please do not hesitate to come back and ask.  

    Have a magical day!
