    Can I buy an individual lightning lane on the day but before I go into the park eg from my hotel room at 6.30am

    Hiya, Jacqueline, and welcome to planDisney!

    Your arrival date to the Disneyland Resort is quickly approaching and I am so happy for you to be visiting!

    As you may know, the Disney100 celebration has begun and there are many debuts to experience. One of them is the opening of Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, which actually has an Individual Lightning Lane entrance!

    Regarding your question, Individual Lightning Lane entrances are available for purchase upon entering a theme park. You can make these à la carte purchases within the Disney Genie Service "Tip Board" or "My Genie Day" section in the Disneyland Mobile App.

    There are also a few things to keep in mind: 

    1. These purchases are subject to availability.
    2. Currently, there are three attractions that have a dedicated Lightning Lane entrance: 1) Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, 2) Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, and 3) Radiator Springs Racers
    3. You can purchase up to two Individual Lightning Lanes total per day upon entering a theme park. 
    Tip: if you know what attractions you would like to experience, I recommend purchasing the Individual Lightning Lanes early, after entering your first theme park.

    Jacqueline, I hope I answered your question. I wish you the happiest visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Your Pal,
