    Hi I wanted to know if I can buy Genie + and make lightning reservations for the others in my party if I haven’t bought Genie + myself. I don’t go on rides but the other members of my party do! Thanks

    Hi Samantha, welcome to planDisney!

    There's more to do than can ever be done during a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and I'm not just talking about the attractions. While your park pals blast off on Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom Park, belt out the chorus of "There's a Great Big, Beautiful Tomorrow" on Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress. When your friends spend time with the Guardians of the Galaxy in EPCOT, taste-test Coca-Cola products from around the world at Club Cool. I dare you to try the Beverly!  

    For members of your party planning to experience multiple attractions in one day, Disney Genie+ service is a great way to spend less time queueing and more time doing. Disney Genie+ service gives Guests access to Lightning Lane entrances at over 40 attractions throughout the four theme parks.

    I have a feeling Cinderella's Fairy Godmother has never worn glass slippers, nor has she ever ridden in a pumpkin carriage. Similarly, Samantha, you are welcome to purchase Disney Genie+ service and make Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations for your party, even if you are not doing so for yourself. Consider yourself a Genie+ Fairy Godmother.

    On the morning of each park day, click the Disney Genie+ banner on the Tip Board of the My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the home page --> Tip Board). The next step of the purchase process asks you to confirm your party. At this time, you can select anyone on your Family & Friends List with valid admission and a theme park reservation linked to their My Disney Experience account or account profile. I recommend purchasing Disney Genie+ service by 6:45 a.m. so you can book your party's first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m. on the dot.

    To book a Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction, scroll to the desired attraction on the Tip Board of your My Disney Experience mobile app and click the "LL Disney Genie+" button. As with Genie+, you'll then confirm your party. You can select anyone on your Family & Friends List with valid admission, a theme park reservation, and Disney Genie+ service linked to their My Disney Experience account.

    If you book your party's first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m., you can use your magic wand to book their next reservation as soon as they've tapped in for their first attraction or two hours after park opening. You can continue booking throughout the day or share the magical responsibilities with other members of your party.

    In case no one's told you this today, Samantha, you are the magic and those in your travel party are lucky to have such a thoughtful, generous friend. Please return to planDisney with any other trip-planning questions.
