    My 16yr old is heading to Disney with her HS band to perform at the Magic Kingdom. We will not be traveling with her. Her Disney Experience app is linked to mine—can I purchase Genie+ for her from home so she can make her own lightning lane reservations?

    Hi Wendy,

    How exciting!  In just a few short days your daughter will be performing on Main Street, USA!  She is going to have some of the best high school memories from this trip.  What a thoughtful parent you are by considering how to optimize the Magic of your child's visit with the purchase of Disney Genie+ service! 

    Good news!  I am happy to inform you that you are able to purchase Disney Genie+ service for your daughter even though you will not be traveling with her.  In order to do this, you should first make sure that you are indeed connected in your Family & Friends List.  Everything look good there?  Great!  Now all you will need to do is sign into your My Disney Experience app and purchase Disney Genie+ any time after midnight on the day that your daughter has a Theme Park Reservation.  I recommend purchasing it for her by 6:45 a.m. so that she will be able to make her first Genie+ Lightning Lane selection at 7:00 a.m. in order to maximize her day in the park. 

    Since your daughter has her own My Disney Experience app, I recommend that she take some time to familiarize herself with all of the neat features before her trip.  Not only will she be able to make her Genie+ Lightning Lane selections from her My Disney Experience app, she will also be able to view wait times, order food and snacks with Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, and so much more!   Once your daughter is familiar with using the My Disney Experience app, she will have phenomenal cosmic powers in the itty bitty living space of her phone.

    I wish your daughter a truly Magical trip and please come back and visit us here again with any more questions.  We are always excited to help you plan your Magical adventures.

    See Ya Real Soon,
