    hi there! i was wondering if i was able to hook up my disney gift cards to the disneyland account so i am able to pay for genie+ when we get inside the parks... how do i do that? thank you!

    Hi Tayia! Welcome to planDisney! I am SO excited to see that you will be at the Happiest Place on Earth in just a week or so! It's time to start that pixie-dusted countdown!

    I am delighted to tell you that YES there is a way to use Disney Gift Cards to pay for Genie+ and Independent Lightning Lanes once you are in the parks. When you open your Disneyland Mobile App after you have scanned into the park, go to your "My Day" plans and you will see the option to upgrade to Genie +. Under "Payment Info", there will be a box to check to "Use a Disney Gift Card". You won't even have to whistle while you work because it'll be done before you can say Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah!

    Be sure to be on the lookout for our Disney PhotoPass photographers and take lots of photos! Included in your purchase of Genie + are unlimited digital downloads of all the photos you capture that day so you can make and remember all those special memories!

    If you're planning to be in Disney California Adventure Park, you'll be there just in time to celebrate Lunar New Year and the year of the tiger (or TIGGER!)! On top of live entertainment and the most delicious eats inspired by Vietnamese, Korean and Chinese cultures, you won't want to miss meeting Raya from Raya and the Last Dragon who is making her very FIRST appearance at the parks! Aside from the sights, sounds and tastes, I love the idea of taking a quiet moment at the Lucky Wishes Wall where you can add your own wish for the year ahead and or share in the ones other Guests have left to be enjoyed. Some of my most favorite moments are when I take a little time to slow down and let the magic settle in around me!

    Tayia, you are well on your way to making some dreams come true! If any other questions pop up before you head on out, feel free to reach back out. We are always here for you at planDisney

    Keep wishing on those stars,

Hello from Philly! Disney Parks have been my heart and soul since my 3-year old feet first hit Main Street, U.S.A. Nothing compares to the burst of pure joy, nostalgia and magic that I feel EVERY time I enter the gates! I love planning Disney vacations and have been known to convert a non-believer or two in one magical afternoon. Whether it's park days with friends, multi-generational trips, toddling around with kids or flying solo, I'm ready to help you personalize the magic at the Happiest Place On Earth!
