    Can my family purchased just lightning lane for parade in magic kingdom and Hollywood studios? Also is there a lightning lane for fantasmic and if a lightning lane can be bought for only it as well?

    Hiya, Hallie! Welcome back to planDisney. We're happy you're here! 

    You can use Lightning Lane entrances two ways! First, you may want to enjoy Lightning Lane entrances by purchasing Disney Genie+ service. This gives you the ability to reserve times to enjoy select attractions and experiences throughout your day. Additionally, you could also purchase Individual Lightning Lane entrances, which allow you to reserve individual attractions that aren't available with Disney Genie+ service.

    Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade in Magic Kingdom Park is available through Disney Genie+ service, so this experience isn't available for an Individual Lightning Lane purchase. When checking Disney's Hollywood Studios experiences, it appears as though Fantasmic! isn't available to purchase through Disney Genie+ service or as an Individual Lightning Lane. You can click "Read More" under each park on the Lightning Lane page to learn more about which attractions are available! 

    But Hakuna Matata, Hallie! No worries! I have a few suggestions for you so that you can prioritize these experiences during your trip. If you decide to make a Disney Genie+ reservation for the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, you'll be able to enjoy this viewing area by the Partners Statue in front of Cinderella Castle. However, if you'd prefer to watch the parade without needing to purchase Disney Genie+ service, you will have a great view of this parade in Frontierland – which happens to be my favorite spot!

    Additionally, if you'd like to prioritize watching Fantasmic! you may want to consider making an advance dining reservation for a Fantasmic! Dining Package! This will allow you to dine at one of the great restaurants in Disney's Hollywood Studios, and then enjoy VIP seating for Fantasmic! While all restaurants would be equally yummy, my personal favorites are 50's Prime Time Café and Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant. To make this reservation, be sure that you use the Fantasmic! Dining Package page (not the individual restaurant's page) and click "Check Availability." Advance dining reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance of your arrival date for the length of your trip, which I would highly recommend since these reservations can get booked up quickly! 

    I hope I was able to point you in the right direction today! If you have any other questions, please visit us again. We're happy to help!
