    When can i buy my lightening lane for flight of passage if i’m not on disney property

    Hi there!

    From one Elizabeth who calls the Peach State home to another, welcome to planDisney! I'm delighted to assist you as you embark on a visit to my favorite Walt Disney World theme park, Disney's Animal Kingdom, so let's get right to your question. Sivako!

    While all Guests are able to reserve Disney Genie+ Lighting Lane entrances at 7 AM, those who are visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth but are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel are not eligible to purchase individual Lightning Lane entrances until the theme park of the attraction they are hoping to enjoy opens for the day. In your specific circumstances, this would be Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Helpfully, you can find its hours each day listed in the My Disney Experience mobile app!

    As a reminder, individual Lighting Lanes differ from Genie+ Lighting Lanes in that they allow Guests to choose a particular window in time (from those available) that best fits their schedule for the day. These tend to sell out quickly, so I encourage you to have your My Disney Experience app handy as soon as you're able to make the purchase. In my personal experience, I have seen times that sold out initially become available later in the day, so if you don't have any luck initially, keep checking back. 

    As a bonus tip: While you're in Pandora - The World of Avatar I hope you'll stop by my favorite quick-service restaurant, Satu'li Canteen for deliciously filling non-traditional theme park fare.

    I hope this was helpful, Elizabeth! If you have any additional questions about your visit, feel free to stop back by. I'm always happy to help!
