    Are the Al a carte lightning pass reservations restricted by an “active” reservation under genie +? Meaning, I have the genie + and have made a reservation with lightning pass, can I make a simultaneous reservation for an Al a carte ride?

    Hi there, C. I'm so happy you reached out to us about one of my favorite topics, the Disney Genie+ Service and Individual Lightning Lanes!

    Ever since these services launched, I have not had a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort without purchasing either or both of them! Each gives you access to the Lightning Lanes for included attractions at the resort for a shorter wait time. And what's not to love about that? With all the time I save, I can shop for my new favorite souvenir, snack on my favorite eats, or ride another attraction! I'm all about maximizing my time and these services help me do just that.

    At this time, you can purchase up to 2 Individual Lightning Lanes per person, per ride. You can also make Lightning Lines, one at a time, if you purchase the Disney Genie+ Service. Currently, you can have active Lightning Lane reservations through Disney Genie+ and active Individual Lightning Lanes at the same time. The system will also allow you to make overlapping reservations so just make sure you are keeping track on the My Disney Genie Day tab of the My Disney Experience mobile app so you don't book too many things at once. And also follow along with the Disney Parks Blog because changes are made to these services from time to time and you'll want to keep up to date.

    C, I have a few other things you'll want to keep in mind when making your reservations. Are you ready? Because here we gooooo...

    • You can make your first Lightning Lane reservation through Disney Genie+ starting at 7 a.m.
    • If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you can make your first Individual Lightning Lane reservation at 7 a.m. as well. All other Guests can make these types of reservations when the park at which the attraction they are looking to book opens.
    • If your first Lightning Lane through Disney Genie+ is for later in the day, you may not need to wait to redeem it to make another reservation. If 120 minutes have gone by since you made your last reservation, you can usually make another reservation. Just keep in mind that this doesn't start until 120 minutes after the park at which the attraction is located has opened. But don't worry, the app will keep track of this for you. Just check at the top of the Tip Board.
    • Once you've tapped into a Lightning Lane that you've reserved through Disney Genie+, you can usually make another reservation before you even experience the attraction!
    If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to me!
