    Can I book an individual lightening lane at 7am, on the day I check in to a Disney hotel?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Yes, on the day that you check in to a Disney Resort Hotel, you are allowed to book Individual Lightning Lane attractions at 7 am. I just did this recently, and it worked like a charm! It is one of the great tools available via your My Disney Experience App.

    A lot of guests don't realize that even before you have dropped your luggage into the hotel room that will serve as your home in the magic, you still can enjoy the perks of being a Disney Resort Hotel guest. That includes relaxing by your resort pool, which is one of my family's favorite ways to start a Walt Disney World vacation! We keep our pool gear in our luggage where we can get to it quickly.

    But it sounds like you are going to arrive and head straight to the parks. Good for you! Remember you can just swing by your hotel first to check your bags with the Bell Services desk. You can collect your bags whenever you get back to your hotel after your day in the parks. If the Bell Services Desk seems to be closed, no worries. The front desk can help you out. And of course, never forget to use the Online Check-In feature of the App so that it will text you your room number when it is ready.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
