    We are going to WDW for 4 days. 1 park each day. We would like to add genie +, but do we have to buy it for every day ?

    Seasons greetings, Amber!

    Oh my garland! You must be so excited that your very merry vacation is just around the corner. There is so much to see, do, and eat during the most festive time of year. Be sure to check out the Disney Parks Blog and follow us on social media to keep up with the holly jolly happenings!

    One of my favorite aspects of the new Genie feature on the My Disney Experience Mobile App is its flexibility. While purchasing Genie+ is advantageous when you want to maximize the number of attractions you experience, I can see skipping it on days when I plan to enjoy the theme parks at a slower pace, sit down for a table-service meal or two, or spend a few hours at my resort pool. Fortunately, you do not need to add Genie+ for the duration of your ticket. Buying it one day at a time is simple and will save you money by not purchasing it for the length of stay. 

    On a day you would like to purchase Genie+, open the My Disney Experience Mobile App and click on the three small horizontal lines in the bottom right corner of the main page to bring up the welcome screen. Next, select the magic lamp icon that says "My Day." Find a purple bar that says "Get Genie+ Service," then follow the prompts to select your party members and finalize payment. You can do this as early as midnight of the day you'd like to purchase Genie+, but since you can't make your first Lightning Lane selection until 7 AM, I suggest taking care of this over breakfast before heading out for the day.

    I hope this is helpful, Amber. I know using the Genie feature feels like a whole new world, but with a little practice, you'll quickly master it! Best wishes for a magical trip, and we can't wait to see ya real soon.

    Happy holidays!
