    If you book a breakfast in a Disney resort hotel but aren’t staying there can you book lightening lanes from 7 am?

    Hiya Joyce - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question for our team of panelists. We love helping Guests just like you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort holidays!

    There are so many wonderful dining options at Walt Disney World Resort, and breakfast is one of my favorite meals! I recently enjoyed the Character Breakfast at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera at Disney's Riviera Resort and it was absolutely fantastic! Not only was the food superb, but it was also so fun to meet and interact with Mickey and his friends as they showed off their artistic talents!

    Now, on to Lightning Lanes! All Guests are able to make Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations starting each morning at 7 a.m. For those attractions which offer Individual Lightning Lane reservations, these can be made starting at 7 a.m. for Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel (and other select hotels), or at the Theme Park's posted opening time for all other Guests. So, if you are not staying at a Resort with this benefit, Individual Lightning Lanes will be available for you to book at the Theme Park's posted opening time. A dining reservation at a Resort does not, by itself, qualify you to make Individual Lightning Lane reservations early, but I still recommend experiencing a great breakfast at one of the Resort locations!

    I hope this information is helpful as you continue planning your upcoming holiday - please let us know if we can assist with answering any additional questions!
