    How do I book Rise of the Resistance if I am not staying at a Disney resort and how do I get the Individual Lightning Lane for that and can I make the purchase beginning at 7am on the App? Also what does it mean when it says no times available on that day?

    Welcome to planDisney, Michael!

    One of the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is being able to purchase Individual Lightning Lanes starting at 7:00 a.m. Guests staying offsite have to wait until the theme park opens to make their purchase. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is one of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World. Unfortunately, that means Individual Lightning Lanes are often sold out by the time the theme park opens. That's not always the case, however, in my experience, there are "no times available" once Disney's Hollywood Studios opens its gates. 

    I assume that's not the answer you were hoping to hear, Michael. My recommendation to you would be to arrive nice and early at Disney's Hollywood Studios. You can then head straight to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance as soon as the park opens (on your way, you can also check availability for Individual Lighting Lanes). You will likely experience a decent wait in line since Disney Resort Guests can take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry (another magical benefit of staying onsite). This enables them to have a 30-minute head start on their Disney day. Nobody loves waiting in line, however, this ride is worth it, Michael. It's such a uniquely immersive attraction. You'll love it!

    I hope that's helpful, Michael. May the Force be with you!
