    Can I buy an Individual Lightning Lane at 7:00am on my day of arrival for my stay at the Polynesian Village before I go to the hotel? Or am I considered off-site until I actually get to my hotel?

    Hiya Rick! Welcome to planDisney!

    The final countdown to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is finally here! In just a few short days, you will be off on the adventure of a lifetime, enjoying The World's Most Magical Celebration! How amazing to be staying at the fabulous Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, one of my favorite spots on the property. If you can, I highly recommend snagging an Advanced Dining Reservation at 'Ohana for a delicious, all you care to enjoy, Polynesian-themed dinner. Just make sure you leave room for dessert because the 'Ohana Bread Pudding is world-famous and certainly lives up to the hype!

    Now, let's get to your question! I am happy to share that you can certainly make your Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane and Individual Lightning Lane selections at 7:00 a.m. before you have actually arrived at your hotel. You do not need to be on property to make your selections. However, you will need to ensure you have your theme park tickets and park pass reservation linked in your My Disney Experience before you can book any Lightning Lane entrances. On my most recent visit to Walt Disney World, I was still in New York when the clock struck 7:00 a.m., but I could still log into the My Disney Experience app and reserve my Lightning Lane selections right from the airport. How great is that?

    Did you know that you will be arriving just in the nick of time to enjoy the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, which ends on February 21st? You won't want to miss this incredible festival, with stunning art galleries, live performances, and culinary creations that are a feast for the senses. If you make it to EPCOT before the 21st, check the My Disney Experience for the DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series performance times. You'll be blown away by the performances of these world-class Broadway stars as they sing some of your all-time favorite Disney classics.

    Rick, I do hope this has been helpful to you! If you have any other vacation planning questions, please don't hesitate to stop by again! We would be happy to help!

    Have a fabulous vacation!
