Answering Your Disneyland Genie Plus Frequently Asked Questions

by Leap on May 2, 2022 3 Los Angeles

Disneyland Genie Plus Frequently Asked Questions - PinterestWe love saving time (and money!) in theme parks. Now that Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ launched at Disneyland, we are excited to add new tools to our theme park belt. Before we hopped to it, though, we had A LOT of questions, and we are sure you do too! Genie and its associated paid products (Disney Genie Plus and individual Lightning Lane) work a little differently at Disneyland compared to Disney World, so we decided to give our Disneyland Genie FAQ its own post to simplify this information for Disneyland visitors. If you're looking for Genie+ answers for a Disney World trip, hop over to our Disney World Genie FAQ post as it will be more hopful and accurate for your visit (and it will cover all the updates).

While we pride ourselves in being theme park “Skip the Line” gurus, Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ have thrown us a major learning curve, especially since we were the masters of Disney MaxPass, the predecessor of Disney Genie+, at Disneyland. We hopped over to Disney California Adventure and Disneyland parks during the launch week of Disney Genie at Disneyland, during the holidays and just after the holidays ended to get acquainted with the new planning tool and skip-the-lines service. We'll definitely need more visits for additional research to strengthen our Disney Genie strategies, but we were able to learn the basics rather quickly on our first few visits. We've got answers to some of the most common inquiries below in our Disneyland Genie FAQ. No need to rub the lamp!

Disneyland Genie and Genie Plus FAQs: A Basic Overview and How to Purchase

Disneyland Genie Plus - Phone and Monorail

What is Disney Genie?

Disney Genie is a new FREE planning tool available in the Disneyland app. You can use this new technology to guide you through the theme parks with tips to help you reduce time in lines, discover Disney magic and take the guesswork out of planning your day. You can learn more about all that's included in the Disney Genie service in our guide to Genie at Disneyland.

How do I prepare to use free Genie planning services?

Disney Genie – Personalized Interests on the AppBefore your trip, tap “My Day,” select the date of your visit and “Get Started.” It will take you through your top picks. It allows you to select attractions, entertainment, dining and enchanting extras to put in your itinerary. Then you can select Disney Favorites (such as Pirates, Star Wars, Heroes or Princesses), Park Interests (such parades or fireworks, slow rides or thrill rides ) and Dining Interests. If you want to display height requirements or accessibility info, you can select those tabs. Then you can view your itinerary under the Tip Board on the day of your visit.

You can opt not to use this free service and stick to your own touring plan. We find the Disney Genie sometimes suggests rides or paid services that are not of most interest to us so we stick to our tried-and-true touring plans. But if you are unfamiliar with the parks or unsure of what to do, you can turn to Genie's itinerary guidance. Our thoughts are that Genie can help you find the shortest wait times so you can get on the most rides, but they may not always be the rides you most want to go on. You can always swap out a ride or restaurant that doesn't fit your interests.

What is Disneyland Genie Plus?

Genie+ is a paid skip-the-line service that allows guests to enter through a special line called the Lightning Lane (think of the former FASTPASS Return Entrance) rather than the standby line. Not all Disneyland attractions are available with Genie Plus, which we'll get into below. This add-on is toadally optional. All rides continue to operate with a standby queue (and sometimes a Single Rider line) at no additional charge. An additional benefit to Genie Plus at Disneyland is that PhotoPass photos are included for the day!

How much is Genie Plus at Disneyland?

Genie+ at Disneyland costs $20 per person, per day. Tadpoles under 3 years old (who do not require a ticket for admission) do not need to purchase Genie+ to go with their party.

When can I purchase Disneyland Genie Plus

If you want to use the service for your entire trip, you can purchase multi-day tickets with Genie+ in advance for Disneyland. (Psst ... save some green by purchasing through Undercover Tourist!) If you purchase Genie+ tickets, you'll have access to the service for every day of your visit.

The turnstiles at the Monorail count as a park entrance.

It's also toadally fine if you want to use it only on certain days or decide you want to use it once you're at the park and can assess if you think it's worth getting. You can purchase regular, multi-day tickets and then add Genie+ day by day on each day of your trip via the Disneyland app. You can only purchase it once you have entered a theme park for the day.

How do I purchase Genie Plus at Disneyland?

There are a few ways to purchase if Genie+ is not included with your tickets. It's not always obvious in the Disneyland app and some ways may work better for you than others. You will see a purple bar under the "My Day" tab with a link that says, "Take Today to the Next Level — Get Genie+ for Today." (It appears after you have entered a park.) This is the best option if you want to edit your party and only want to purchase for some members of the party. You can deselect people here.

Another way is in the Tip Board. Under a Genie+ attraction, you'll see the LL distribution time and "Book Experience." When you tap that box, it will walk you through purchasing Genie+. This will automatically select all people linked to your app who are in the park. You cannot edit the party through this method.

Do I have to be in the park to use Genie Plus at Disneyland?

While you have to enter a theme park to activate Genie+, you do not have to stay in the park. Once you have entered a park for the day, you can leave and make Lighting Lane selections from anywhere — Downtown Disney, your hotel room or a restaurant. Of course, you'll have to hop back into the park in time to ride! We like to hop into the park before character dining in the hotels so we can start using Genie+ to line up our first ride or two in advance. Keep in mind that all party members need to have entered the park if they want to be included in any Lighting Lane reservations with the rest of the group.

How does Disneyland Genie Plus work?

Genie+ allows guests to skip the line at the included attractions, once per ride per day (so no unlimited access like the previous Disneyland MaxPass offering). You can begin making your Genie+ reservations once you have entered the park for the day. You can make your selections across all of the theme parks if you have a Park Hopper ticket (look near the bottom of the "My Day" tab where it says, "Plan for Your Next Park" to let Genie know your park hopping plans). These reservations can be made within the Disneyland app at Disneyland. One big change for people who have used MaxPass or FastPass is that you can only book a particular ride once per day.

Which Disneyland attractions are included with Genie+?

Disneyland Genie+ FAQ - Millennium FalconInitially, there are 19 attractions are included in the Genie+ service at Disneyland.

Which Disneyland attractions are NOT included with Genie+?

Actually, a good amount of Disneyland rides are not on Genie+. Many of the Fantasyland rides are not on Genie+ at Disneyland, and a few classic attractions such as Jungle Cruise and Pirates of the Caribbean operate with a standby line only. Most of the rides without a height requirement at Disney California Adventure also have a standby line only.

A few in-demand or newest rides are excluded from Genie+. Instead, these rides have a standby line (for no extra charge) or you can pay to skip the line on an individual basis. You’ll pay an additional price per person, per line to use the Lightning Lane (whether or not you have purchased Genie+ for the day).

Let's take a look at attractions that are not included with Disney Genie Plus at Disneyland.

What is Lightning Lane?

Disneyland Genie Plus - Radiator Springs Racers Entrance

Lightning Lane is the name of the queue you will enter at each attraction. The FASTPASS entrances have been renamed Lightning Lanes (ka-chow!). Genie+ users, as well as individual Lighting Lane selection users, use this lane. Sometimes Disneyland Disability Access Service users use this lane as well.

Do you have to purchase Genie+ to buy individual Lightning Lane selections?

No, you do not need to have Genie+ to purchase individual Lightning Lane selections. (You can opt for one or the other, or purchase both skip-the-line options.)

Which attractions are included as individual Lightning Lane selections?

Individual Lightning Lane selections at Disneyland include:

  • Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

Individual Lightning Lane selections at Disney California Adventure include:

  • Radiator Springs Racers
  • WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure

If you are park hopping after 1 p.m., you can make an individual Lightning Lane selection for a ride in the other park in the morning. It will automatically select the first available time after 1 p.m. for you.

These a la carte options can be purchased same-day, in-park on a first-available time basis. You can pay-per-Lightning Lane for a particular attraction once per day and pay to upgrade for up to two different individual Lightning Lane rides per day.

Can Disneyland Genie Plus rides "sell out"?

Genie+ rides are not guaranteed. The most popular rides can run out of available Genie+ Lightning Lane selections. We saw this later in the day at Disneyland when Lightning Lane for Indiana Jones Adventure was "Not currently offered." Guardians of the Galaxy and Toy Story Midway Mania are likely to “sell out” as well. Don't give up hope on them though! You might see more availability pop up later, possibly due to cancellations. Act quickly on those if you see them. There are fewer rides on Genie+ at Disney California Adventure than at Disneyland, so those tend to go faster than they do at Disneyland.

How much are individual Lightning Lane selections?

Disneyland Genie Plus - Tip Board ScreenshotPricing and availability vary by date, attraction and park. For example, Lightning Lane access to Radiator Springs Racers and WEB SLINGERS has a big range from $7 to $18 per person, depending on expected crowds. Rise of the Resistance pretty much stays at $20 per person each day. You can see the price before you pay.

Can individual Lightning Lane selections sell out?

Yes. Once all the available add-on rides slots are filled, the individual Lightning Lane box will say, "Not currently offered." Rise of the Resistance is most likely to sell out. On busier days, the other two can sell out as well, so if you wish to buy them, don't wait too long. However, none of the rides sell out as quickly as they do at Disney World.

Disneyland Genie Plus and Individual Lightning Lane Selection Process FAQs

How do you select a time window for a Genie+ ride?

Disneyland Genie Plus - My Day ScreenshotWhenever you are eligible to make another Lightning Lane selection with Genie+, you'll see a "Book Lightning Lane Entry" message appear under "My Day." It pulls up all the available Genie+ ride options. The problem we have is that it only lists the Disneyland Park rides even if we are hopping and are in the other park. We are sure Disney is working out these kinks.

Another way is to navigate to your Tip Board, where you can see wait times and the next available Lightning Lane time window. You can tap on the LL to book the ride. The next window could be as soon as five minutes later or hours away. You cannot choose time windows far in advance to suit your schedule. Click on "Book Experience." The next page will confirm the arrival window, show you if you have any overlapping plans and you can adjust your party, if needed, before you officially book it.

One challenging part of the Tip Board is that it defaults to Disneyland Park, so each time you go to make a reservation in Disney California Adventure, you have to change the park at the top. If you know what you want, sometimes it's easier to use the search feature (magnifying glass) in the app to type in the name of the ride you want, tap the LL and get the Lightning Lane that way.

How soon can you make another Genie+ ride selection if you can only get one at a time?

You can make your next Genie+ ride selection once you've scanned in at the Lightning Lane entrance of your first ride. For example, we rode Big Thunder Mountain Railroad as our very first Genie+ ride of the day. After scanning the code on our phones, we were able to get a Genie+ selection for Haunted Mansion in line before we even boarded Big Thunder.

Alternatively, you can book the next ride if you cancel the first one or reach the end of the ride window. Also, if the first ride breaks down and you receive a Lightning Lane - Select Experiences pass, it releases you from that first ride so you may immediately make a new ride selection for the original ride or a different ride. What's great is that it also includes most rides without a Lightning Lane, giving you the opportunity to skip those lines!

Can you book more than one experience?

You can only make one Genie+ selection at a time, but you can hold overlapping Genie+ selections if you choose a ride window that is more than two hours away. You just have to wait two hours before booking the next ride. You can also purchase an individual Lightning Lane selection that overlaps with a Genie+ selection.

But what if my Genie+ return time window is more than two hours away?

Like we mentioned before, you can only select the next available time. So, if it's a particularly busy day, you might find that, when you're looking at noon, the next available time for a popular ride could be 6 p.m. Snag it anyway! Your ability to make Genie+ selections will be frozen for two hours, but starting at 2 p.m., you can make another Genie+ selection for another ride. If that ride is more than two hours away, then, at 4 p.m., you can make one more, and so on.

Speaking of individual Lightning Lane selections, is that process different?

At Disneyland, which differs from Disney World, the individual Lightning Lane selections are also offered at the next available time. There is an exception for park hoppers. If you know you want to purchase individual Lightning Lane for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, but you're starting in Disney California Adventure, you can purchase in the morning and the app will automatically select the first available time after 1 p.m. (This is also true for Genie+ Lightning Lane. It will automatically adjust to your plans to hop.)

Like Genie+, you can only book individual Lightning Lane selections once you have entered a theme park that day.

How does Genie+ work if you're park hopping?

Disneyland Genie Plus - My Next Park Screen

Let Genie know that you're park hopping by going to the "My Day" tab and selecting which hours you plan to hop and stay in the other park. That way Genie can make recommendations based on your park hopping plans.

You can make a Genie+ and an individual Lightning Lane selection for your second park while you're still in your first park. For example, on a day we started at Disneyland, we tried making a reservation for Soarin' while we were still at our first park at 11 a.m. But wait, the next time available window for Soarin' was 12:30 p.m. and hopping was only allowed after 1 p.m. How is that possible? We wanted to see if we could book it anyway, so once we clicked on "Book Experience," the arrival time window automatically changed to "1 to 2 p.m." due to park hopping! At that time, our Genie+ ability would freeze for two hours, so we couldn’t make any more Genie+ reservations at Disneyland, so we had to prioritize.

What if I change my mind?

You cannot modify an existing Genie+ selection, but you can cancel and reserve a different time or attraction. Once you hit cancel, you can remove select members of your party (if someone has changed their mind) or cancel it for everyone. We suggest that you need to be certain about canceling the reservation because the next available time window for that ride could be much later in the day or even unavailable! You can check the Genie+ availability status for the current time window being offered before you cancel.

If you cancel a Genie+ reservation, did you use your only chance for that ride?

No! Because you can only use Genie+ access once per ride, you do need to cancel it if you wish to change your arrival time.

If you miss your window and do not successfully cancel it, you will not be able to make another reservation for that ride. We missed our arrival window for Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters. The reservation did not disappear right away, but when we checked 15 minutes later, it was gone. We attempted to make another but could not because we were ineligible since we "used" it already.

Can you be early or late to your Genie+ or individual Lightning Lane reservation?

The arrival windows have a little wiggle room. You can scan in five minutes early, and arrive up to 10 or 15 minutes late (depending on the attraction). If you're later than that, the cast members may not be able to let you through. If it's an instance that's out of your control (such as a different ride breaking down that caused you to be late), we suggest kindly explaining the situation, but it's up to the discretion of the cast members at the ride entrance.

Sometimes it takes longer than 15 minutes to scan in to enter the Lightning Lane, so do not push the window. Once it expires, it disappears from your app and you cannot rebook that ride. If you're dangerously close to 10 minutes past your window and in a longer-than-expected line to scan in, screenshot your codes so you can show them to the cast member.

What if the ride that you have a Genie+ or individual Lightning Lane selection for breaks down in your window?

Disneyland Genie Plus FAQ - Multiple Experiences PassIndividual Lighting Lane Ride Breakdown

Don't worry! There are certain recovery efforts that the cast members can implement in case this happens. For instance, if you paid for an individual Lightning Lane selection that you haven't used yet but it breaks down in your window, after a few minutes, you’ll see a change in your app under "My Day" that allows you to come back any time that day before the ride closes for the day (Rise of the Resistance closes early each day, so check the app). If you are unable to ride before you leave the park, you’ll automatically get a refund on your credit card about two to five days later.

We did make a discovery each day we booked an individual Lightning Lane that happened to break down. We had made our maximum purchase of two individual Lightning Lane rides for the day. But after the first ride broke down and became an all-day pass for the ride, it also lifted the restriction, allowing us to purchase a third individual Lightning Lane.

Genie+ Ride Breakdown

We’ve already talked about this a little, but if a breakdown occurs in your Genie+ Lightning Lane window, you’ll receive a Select Experiences Pass under "My Day." Talk about turning lemons into lemonade. We love these guys! Here’s why:

  • You have until the end of the day (or a particular ride closes) to use the Select Experiences pass. Use it right away or save it!
  • Tap it to see a list of rides you can either ride instead, or you can save it for your original ride once it reopens.
  • The selection varies based on the ride that broke down. So if Indiana Jones Adventure breaks down, you can pretty much ride any ride in the parks except Peter Pan's Flight and individual Lightning Lane attractions. When Incredicoaster broke down, we could use the Select Experiences pass for most Genie+ attractions (except for Toy Story Midway Mania!, Matterhorn, Indiana Jones Adventure or Space Mountain) and any ride in the parks except individual Lightning Lane rides and Peter Pan's Flight. So there are different tiers of rides based on how in-demand they are.
  • It removes the wait to book another ride, so you are immediately eligible to book a new one! You can rebook the same ride that broke down, so that may allow you to use the Lightning Lane twice for a favorite ride — one with Lightning Lane and one with the Select Experiences pass. Or you can use the pass for a different ride. Win-win, either way.
  • If you immediately re-book the same ride that just broke down (saying you can book for a window that starts very soon) and the ride stays broken down, you’ll get another "Select Experiences" Pass after a few minutes, and another … you get the point. We acquired three of these babies after an extended Incredicoaster breakdown. If you are park hopping, these passes are good for select rides in either park. While Tad and I were sad to miss our favorite roller coaster, the breakdown allowed us to hop over to Disneyland with three Select Experience passes. Plus we had a Genie+ Lightning Lane reservation for Thunder Mountain from 1 to 2 p.m., (which we immediately scanned in for at 1:05 p.m. and then booked Space Mountain), and an individual Lightning Lane reservation for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance for 1 to 2 p.m. We rode three major rides within the first hour of hopping. And we still had three Select Experiences rides ahead of us. You can’t argue with that magic! Obviously, on a busier day, things would play out differently as available return windows stretch out into the future.

Does Genie+ grant you immediate access to the ride?

No. It definitely offers you a shorter line to stand in, but you will likely have some wait. Busier days mean a longer Lightning Lane wait than you might find on an off-peak day. We saw a big difference in using Disneyland Genie+ on a quiet week versus a holiday week. We waited longer in the Lighting Lane during the holiday week and had fewer immediate Lighting Lane windows available to us. The lines to redeem Lighting Lanes may shorten once MagicBand+ comes to Disneyland in 2022. It's a bit cumbersome for everyone to pull out phones and find the reservation and scan each code right now.

Miscellaneous Disneyland Genie FAQs (for Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane)

Is Genie+ different at Disneyland and Disney World?

Yes! Genie+ at Disney World costs $15 per person, per day and does not include PhotoPass (you'll still need to spring for Memory Maker if you want unlimited photos!). Disney World guests get Disney PhotoPass lenses included. At Disneyland, Genie+ costs $20 per person, per day and includes unlimited PhotoPass downloads but no PhotoPass lenses. There are no on-site hotel benefits at Disneyland. All guests must have entered a theme park to start making any Lightning Lane selections. We have found that individual Lighting Lanes do not sell out as quickly at Disneyland. Plus there is a greater variety of available Genie+ Lightning Lane selections throughout the day at Disneyland Resort.

Can I use Disability Access Service (DAS) with Genie+?

Yes. If you use DAS, you can make Lightning Lane selections as well as DAS selections, and the two types of reservation can overlap with each other. For rides with Lighting Lane, you're usually using the same shorter queue to access the rides anyway. Notify the cast members if you require any special assistance when scanning in with Genie+. The DAS has recently undergone changes at Disneyland that allow users to make DAS return time selections from their smartphone, which is so much easier than having to collect them in person from Guest Relations each time. Hop over to our Disneyland Disability Access Service post for the latest details.

Chances are you will not feel the need to pay more to use both systems, but if you do decide to spring for Genie+ to maximize time, use Genie+ for its included Lighting Lane rides and use DAS for the other rides (including the individual Lighting Lane options!).

Do Disney Resort Hotel guests get any perks related to Genie+?

While Disney World Resort hotel guests can make individual Lightning Lane reservations as early as 7 a.m. on the day of their visit, Disneyland Resort guests have no real advantage except that they are close enough to get into the park early without the hassle of driving and parking each day. Once Extra Magic Hours return in summer 2022, hotel guests will be able to get into the parks sooner and can therefore make Lightning Lane selections sooner, although the selections will be for when the park officially opens. All Disneyland guests can make their Genie+ and individual Lightning Lane selections after entering the theme park.

Does Disneyland have Wi-Fi?

Yes, but it's spotty and inconsistent. We often turn off the Wi-Fi and use our own data for better luck. This definitely makes using Genie+ harder on foreign travelers who might get more frustrated with the Wi-Fi signal.

What about Magic Key holders?

Previously, Disneyland Annual Passholders were able to add MaxPass to their pass for a flat rate each year. So far, no AP or Magic Key add-ons have been announced.

If we have unused pre-COVID tickets purchased with MaxPass, can we use them as Genie+?

No. Call Disneyland ticketing at (714) 520-6222 or (714) 781-4636 to hear about your options. You can also submit an inquiry to Guest Services via email (select "Disney MaxPass Refunds" from the subject drop-down menu). You'll need your ticket number to submit your inquiry before your tickets expire.

Can we purchase tickets pre-loaded with Genie+?

You sure can! You can purchase Disneyland tickets with Genie+.

Can I add Genie+ to my existing Disneyland ticket purchased through Undercover Tourist?

Yes! You can purchase Genie+ through the Disneyland app once you have entered a theme park.

I only want to add Disneyland Genie Plus on select days, for certain people in my party. Is this possible?

Yes. You can purchase for just some members of your party. In fact, some families just get one Genie+ to get all the PhotoPass downloads. If you have small children who do not meet the height requirements for most thrill rides, you can save money by not getting them Genie+.

Note that if you are purchasing Genie+ in the app, you want to go to the "My Day" tab and look for the purple bar that says "Get Disney Genie+ for Today." Then it will let you edit your party before purchasing so you do not have to purchase for all ticket holders.

What if my teens want to split off and do their own rides?

You can easily split up and have individuals make their own Genie+ ride selections that differ from the rest of the group's plans. The people who want to split off from the group can either link their tickets to a separate account or just log into the same account as the others are using. It doesn't matter. When you go to book a ride, you can edit the party of just the people who wish to make that Lightning Lane selection. For example, if Mommy Frog and I want to ride Haunted Mansion, we would only select our two tickets when choosing the party for Lightning Lane, allowing Tad and his cousin or friend to go select just themselves for Space Mountain or Guardians of the Galaxy. You just cannot have one person on two different Lighting Lanes. So if we added Tad to our Haunted Mansion, he would be unable to make a different selection unless he canceled his Haunted Mansion Lightning Lane.

Tad usually logs into our family account when he splits up. That way he can Mobile Order food through the app on our credit card. He doesn't realize that we can see where he is eating when Mobile Order notifications pop up or the Lightning Lanes for rides he is planning to ride appear on our phones. It's one way we can keep tabs on him. Even if he logged into a different account, we would still see his plans since he is also linked to our account.

The only time this gets tricky is if all the parties experience different ride breakdowns and acquire Select Experiences passes. Under "My Day" you would see everyone's Select Experiences passes listed, so you would have to be careful when redeeming those to use the correct ones since some are better than others. No stealing!

If only some members of the party wish to purchase an individual Lightning Lane for an attraction, again, they can edit the party prior to purchase.

What ever happened to the family, or friends saying "Hey, Lets go to Disneyland, today?" We would get ready, and out the door we went. No planning, no pay extra services, no restaurant reservations, and unless on weekends, we could get a room to stay in that evening. Ah, the good old day. Now, to visit a Disney property, it takes at least 6 months (or more) of intense planning. Too many applications to deal with, now a days. Did it once, and to do it again, I say " No, Thank you!!!"

My party of 13 purchased Genie+ and our lightening lane selections closed for the day by 6pm. It seems that they max out the number of rides you are allowed to do in a day? Wasn't listed anywhere and we were very surprised and discouraged as we paid a lot of money and were blocked by 6pm from using.

If you have a large party, the number of selections decreases. You can break your party into smaller groups to get more options for rides.
