    We have a 2 year old in our group. How can we add him to our party in the app? Or can we just bring him with us, if we book lightning lanes?

    As Mickey says, "Hiya, pal!" Welcome back to planDisney, Martin. In just a few days, Mickey and Minnie Mouse will welcome you through the gates and into the Most Magical Place on Earth. Hot dog!

    I had the pure joy of taking my nephew to Walt Disney World Resort last year when he was 2. Genie+ got us on all the attractions we wanted to do at Magic Kingdom Park before nap time. Since he was under 3, he was a Guest of Mickey. In addition to not needing a theme park ticket, he could use the Lightning Lane entries with me. I did not need to purchase Genie+ for him or include him in the Lightning Lane selections.

    One thing I did not plan was that he was obsessed with the Disney band and scanning in for all the attractions. He did not want me to be the only one having that kind of fun. So, I handed him my band at each attraction, and he scanned us in the Lightning Lanes. This year, the two of us did a repeat visit, and he was thrilled to have his own band and tap into the rides.

    With Genie+, you can select your first attraction as early as 7 am. You can make your next selection two hours after the park opens or after enjoying the first attraction you chose, whichever is earlier. The rest of the day follows the same cadence: every two hours or after going to the last choice you made, whichever comes first. The Tip Board on the My Disney Experience App will tell you when you are eligible to make another selection, which is very helpful for keeping track. 

    With Genie+, you also get access to exclusive PhotoPass Lenses. These fun lenses add a bit of Disney magic to your selfies. You can access them on the My Disney Experience app under the main menu (the "≡" at the bottom of the screen).

    I hope your time at Walt Disney World creates core memories for you and your family! If you have any other questions, you know you can always stop back by planDisney. You've got a friend in us!

    See 'Ya Real Soon!
