    Hi would my 9 years old child need a genie pass or is it only needed for adults?

    Welcome to planDisney, Val. We're so glad you dropped by to ask this question. Hooray! Your visit to the Disneyland Resort is almost here and I'm thrilled to help make sure that you are all set for your Disney day.

    I'm so glad to hear that you are planning on summoning Genie and his phenomenal cosmic powers with Disney Genie+ Service. Each ticket holder (including your nine-year-old child) who would like to use Disney Genie+ will need to purchase this add-on service. You can add Disney Genie+ Service at the time of purchasing your tickets at the Disneyland site. If you've already purchased your tickets and didn't add Disney Genie+, no problem. You can still add this on the day of your visit. Once your tickets have been scanned and you've entered the theme park, you can open the Disneyland app to complete your purchase. Disney Genie+ Service is limited in availability and pricing varies day by day. 

    The Holidays at the Disneyland Resort have arrived and it's a super popular time to visit. Disney Genie+ is going to be so helpful with cutting down a lot of time waiting in line for attractions during your day. My friends and I used Disney Genie+ during our recent visit and we were able to reduce our time waiting in queues and ride so many attractions. Be sure to take some time to snap a picture or two with a Disney PhotoPass photographer. With Disney Genie+ Service, you receive unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads from the day. One last quick tip, be sure all of your tickets are linked in the Disneyland app for ease of booking Lightning Lane selections. I also like to take a look at the list of attractions that offer a Lightning Lane entrance with Disney Genie+ to help plan my day.

    Val, I hope this helps as you are getting ready for your holly jolly visit to the Happiest Place on Earth. Make sure to take a few moments to take in all of the festive ambiance around the parks during your visit. I especially love walking down Main Street, U.S.A. under all of the twinkling lights. Come back to see us with any other questions as you continue to plan.
