    Can you change return time on Individual Lightning Lane

    Hi Heather, welcome to planDisney!

    Your question about the possibility of modifying Individual Lightning Lane times after purchase was my question yesterday morning. I was unsuccessful in joining the 7:00 a.m. virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT but knew this was a must-do attraction for my day. I purchased an Individual Lightning Lane and selected a return window of 11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. Some of my friends booked an arrival window of 10:45 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. so I consulted the My Disney Experience mobile app to see if I could modify my arrival window. I discovered I could not.

    Unlike Genie+ Lighting Lane reservations, Individual Lightning Lane reservations cannot be cancelled or modified after purchase. In my case, my friends and I were able to experience Guardians together because of our overlapping arrival windows. It may be helpful to know you can tap in for an Individual Lightning Lane reservation up to five minutes early.

    When planning a park day that includes an Individual Lightning Lane purchase or two, make sure the arrival time is right before purchasing. Avoid selecting arrival windows close to dining reservations, for example. If possible, it's also a good idea to have one person purchase Individual Lightning Lanes for your entire party, which can be done as long as everyone is connected as Family & Friends in My Disney Experience. As a reminder, Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can purchase up to two Individual Lightning Lanes for two different attractions at 7:00 a.m. each day. All other Guests can purchase at park opening. 

    I hope this information helps you plan your practically perfect park days, Heather. Please return to planDisney with any other trip-planning questions.
