    Hi Doug, dying to ride Rise of Resistance and staying off property - looks like 0% chance of getting lightning lane. Standby is not advised from what I read with young kids (up to 3 hours). If I purchase a campsite for one night will I count as on property


    Thanks for asking me your question to planDisney!

    Yes, if you have a stay at The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, you qualify as a Disney resort guest and can use that earlier access time to the Individual Lightning Lane reservation system. Some of my great planDisney panelist friends confirmed this for me today. But they also pointed out that you do have to check in for that campground to be entered into the system as an active Disney resort guest. Simply having a reservation, but not actually checking in, will nullify your access.

    But more good news! You can use the Online Check-In system that is also used by the Disney resort hotels, making for a convenient check-in process, long before you even get to Orlando. I just checked in to my hotel for our upcoming Spring Break trip from the comfort of my living room in Indiana!

    Since you will be a Disney resort hotel guest, make sure you take advantage of the Early Theme Park Entry for Disney Resort Hotel Guests. An extra half hour to your day can make all the difference!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
