    Can I buy lightning lane, if I dont have genie plus?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Linda, we thank you for consulting us with your excellent question regarding the Disney Genie+ service!

    Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane Entrance purchase per person per day will present you with an array of over 40 eligible experiences across all four theme parks from which you can select an arrival window for those entrances, one at a time throughout the day. You can add it to your purchased tickets through your Disney account, or the My Disney Experience app before your arrival, or you can purchase this after midnight on the day of your theme park visit. I recommend purchasing it around 6:00 AM ET to be ready for your first selection at 7:00 AM ET (for Disney Resort hotel Guests and other select hotel Guests).  

    Linda, to answer your question specifically, the Individual Lightning Lane Entrance is an option for highly sought after attractions that can be used with or without Disney Genie+ service. Eligible attractions are available for purchase as stand-alone for a set fee per valid theme park admission. You will have the ability to select one arrival window, one at a time for up to 2 designated Individual Lightning Lane Entrance attractions per day. Pricing and availability will differ for each designated attraction. To make Individual Lightning Lane Entrance purchases, please refer to your “Tip Board” or “My Day” itinerary in the My Disney Experience app on the same day of your theme park visit beginning at 7:00 AM ET (for Disney Resort hotel Guests and other select hotel Guests).

    Please note that a Disney Park Pass reservation and valid theme park admission are required to work in alliance with the Disney Genie+ services. Ensure your Family & Friends list is up to date to enable you the choice of adding those interested to your plans (Disney Park Pass and valid theme park admission required). Lastly, those who are Guests of Disney Resort hotels, or other select hotels may begin their selections at 7:00 AM ET. All other Guests may begin selections at theme park opening.

    Linda, please refer to our official Disney Parks Blog to enhance your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning, especially during the 50th Anniversary Celebration!

    Best Disney Wishes ~ Jacqueline
