    Hi am I able to do individual lightning lane purchase at 7 am the day of checking into Disney resort? I am going to Epcot that evening and checking into swan reserve sometime when I arrive so I want to get the individual lightning lane at 7am that morning

    Heigh-Ho Natalie,

    Planning your Practically Perfect Walt Disney World vacation is an exciting time and now, with the Disney Genie, Disney Genie+ and/or Individual Lightning Lane features, Guests have more options in creating their itinerary. And the great thing is all of this can be done via your My Disney Experience app. This handy dandy tool is your vacation hub and I recommend, before your arrival, become comfortable navigating all it can do for you. 

    Guests, who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin Hotel or Shades of Green, are able to purchase Individual Lightning Lane experience at 7:00 a.m. on the day of including their arrival day. All other Guests can purchase at the time of park openings. At the moment Epcot's Lightning Lane selection includes Frozen Ever After and the nouveau attraction Remy's Ratatouille Adventure. And be sure to check out Epcot's new and incredibly stunning nighttime show Harmonious. From the intricate laser and fireworks choreography to the worldly inclusive musical repertoire  Guests will want to see this show over and over again. I suggest trying to find a spot near the Port of Entry Shop, at the start of World Showcase, or around the waterview spots in Italy. But no matter your viewpoint you are sure to end your evening enjoying this magical and memorable show.

    Safe travels and we are excited to Welcome You Home during Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary

    Have a Magical Day,

    Amy M.

Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
