    We are visiting Disneyland tomorrow 10/4 and I was told we should purchase the Disneyland Genie passes. How do I add those to my existing reservation?

    Hiya, Ally!

    Planning to use the Disney Genie+ service is a great plan! It really helps to maximize the magic during your visit to the Disneyland Resort.

    There are two ways to purchase the Disney Genie+ service. The first way is to include it with your theme park ticket purchase. When purchasing Genie+ at the time of your ticket purchase you will have it included for all days of your ticket. The other way to purchase Genie+ is one day at a time during your visit to the Disneyland Resort.

    When purchasing Genie+ during your visit to the Disneyland Resort, you must first enter one of the theme parks to have your ticket activated for the day. Then you may use the Disneyland mobile app to purchase Genie+. Look for the “Purchase for Today” button in the Genie+ section of the application home screen. Or you may initiate a purchase by beginning to book a Lightning Lane return time from the Disney Genie Tip Board. You will be able to purchase Genie+ for some or all of the active tickets linked to your account.

    Tony’s Tip: Payment for the Disney Genie+ service can be made within the Disneyland app. To expedite your purchase, you may want to link a debit or credit card to your account if you haven’t already. You may do so by tapping “My Profile” from the ☰ feature menu. Then select “Payment Method” to securely store your card information with your Disney account.

    There is so much that comes with the Disney Genie+ service. Of course, you’ll be able to book return times for shorter way times at many attractions that feature Lightning Lane queues. (Note that a few attractions with Lightning Lanes are not included with Genie+. Access to the Lightning Lanes for those attractions may be purchased individually.) Besides Lightning Lane access, Genie+ gives you access to Audio Tales, a sort of personal Disneyland Resort tour guide and storyteller. You also get complimentary downloads of all of your Disney PhotoPass photos with Genie+, including attraction photos. And, new this week, access to interactive Disney PhotoPass Lenses. I’m actually a little jealous that you get to experience this cool new feature in the Disneyland app before me. My family has loved playing with the Disney PhotoPass Lenses at the Walt Disney World Resort. And now, I’m really looking forward to trying out the new Disneyland Resort-exclusive lenses during our next visit.

    With the Disney Genie service and Disney Genie+ service, your Disneyland Resort wishes are even more accessible. I hope you have a magical time, Ally!
