    Why can I not add genie plus to my existing tickets?

    Hi Taylor, welcome to planDisney!

    You've found the right place to bring all of your questions about planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. A glance at planDisney's Top 23 for 2023 will get you really excited about your arrival!

    Disney Genie+ service maximizes the magic on your park days by giving you access to the Lightning Lane entrance at over 40 attractions throughout the four theme parks. Disney Genie+ service can only be purchased the morning of each park day via the Tip Board of the My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the home page --> Tip Board). You can purchase anytime after midnight, but I typically buy at 6:45 a.m. so I can book my first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m.

    Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions book for the next arrival time, which is a one-hour window. You are eligible to book your next Genie+ Lighting Lane attraction when you tap in at the first or at the time listed on your Tip Board banner. You can purchase Disney Genie+ service and make Genie+ Lightning Lane attractions for anyone that appears on your Family & Friends List in My Disney Experience.

    In my experience, Genie+ grants the most wishes at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios. My family does not typically invest in Genie+ for our EPCOT or Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park days because there are fewer attractions and more strolling activities like viewing the exhibits at the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival and visiting Conservation Station.

    If you have any more questions about the ins and outs of using Disney Genie+ service, Taylor, I'm all Minnie ears!

    Choose magic,
