    If we don’t link our park tickets in the My Disney Experience app, can we still access the virtual queue or purchase individual lightning lanes?

    Hiya Kelly, Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for stopping by with your excellent question. I'm thrilled to assist you! How exciting that you're planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort! Your trip will be here before you know it. You are sure to make awesome memories at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Kelly, in order to access the theme parks, you will need to link your park tickets to your My Disney Experience account. Disney Genie Service, offered through the My Disney Experience app, is a complimentary tool for guests to use when planning their days in the parks. One of my favorite features is the personalized itinerary suggestions! Virtual Queues and Individual Lightning Lanes are only accessible via the My Disney Experience app. 

    You can access the Lightning Lane at select attractions if you have purchased Disney Genie+ for the day. Disney Genie+ is available for purchase when the clock strikes midnight on the day of your visit. Disney Genie+ is a service that will let you pick attraction return times for your day at a theme park. Starting at 7:00 AM, regardless of ticket type, you can choose one attraction and a return time.  You can make a second attraction return time after you have used the first one, or after two hours, whichever comes first. Not all attractions are available with Genie+.

    Individual Lightning Lane entry can be purchased a la carte and is a pay per ride service. You would do this for attractions that are not offered through Disney Genie+, like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and TRON Lightcycle/Run (if you're not able to get a virtual queue), Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and more. Individual Lightning Lane entry can be purchased starting at 7:00 AM on the day of your visit if staying at a Walt Disney World Resort. Guests staying off property can make their purchase when the parks open.

    Kelly, I hope you find this information helpful as you prepare for an exciting visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Thank you again for visiting planDisney. Have a magical day!
