    How can my 17 year old daughter and her friends add genie plus when they enter the park tomorrow, if their app won't let them link to a credit card and I am not going into the park with them?

    Hi, Karen!

    Welcome back to planDisney, and thank you for asking us another question. I know your Disneyland Resort visit is about to begin, so you must be excited to be immersed in the magic soon!

    Yes, you’re correct that Disney Genie+ service may only be purchased by Guests ages 18 and over as minors’ Disney accounts are unable to store a credit card. However, there is a solution for this as long as your daughter’s theme park ticket and her friends’ tickets are linked to your adult-managed account. You may purchase Disney Genie+ for them as soon as their tickets are scanned for theme park entry on the day they’ll use the service. 

    To do this, open the Disneyland mobile app. You may see a banner on the welcome screen advertising Disney Genie+ with a “Purchase” button. If not, click the three stacked lines icon near the bottom right of your screen, select the tile that reads “Rides, Shows & Lightning Lane Entry,” and tap “Purchase for Today” on the next screen. You can then scroll down, click the “Get Disney Genie+ Service” button, and select the park tickets for the Guests who will need Disney Genie+ for the day as long as they have already entered Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park.

    I hope these instructions are helpful, Karen, and that your daughter and her friends have a blast! Please feel free to write back with any other questions you can dream of.

    Wishing you magic,
