    My family and I want to visit the Star Wars area at Hollywood Studios and purchase Lightning Lane for both rides. Where do we do this, and how much will it cost?

    Hey there, hi there, Rebecca! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney, and I'm so glad you've stopped by with your question!

    I know you must be getting so excited, Rebecca. In just days, you'll be embarking on your magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. And since you plan on taking advantage of the Lightning Lane entrances to spend less time waiting in line and more time in the magic, it sounds as if your planning is off to a practically perfect start. Now, let's tie up your loose planning ends so you can sit back, relax and start your countdown to the fun and magic!

    On the day of your Disney's Hollywood Studios visit, you can purchase Lightning Lane entrances for attractions in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (and more) via the Disney Genie Service by tapping the "Tip Board" tile right on the My Disney Experience app. To use the Lightning Lane entrance for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (one of the most incredible attractions I have ever experienced), you will purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for that single attraction. If you're staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you can purchase this Individual Lightning Lane right at 7:00 a.m. EST, and if you are staying elsewhere, you can purchase it when the park opens that day. 

    To skip the line via the Lightning Lane entrance for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, you will purchase the Disney Genie+ Service for the day. Right at 7:00 a.m. EST, you can make your first Lightning Lane selection for the day. Since Millennium Falcon is your top must-do attraction, I suggest grabbing a Lightning Lane for this attraction right at 7:00 a.m. Then, keep making Lightning Lane selections throughout the day to spend less time in line and more time having fun. Just keep an eye on the top of your Tip Board on the My Disney Experience app to see when you can make your next selection, and I recommend setting a reminder on your phone so you don't forget. Time flies when you're having so much fun!

    The price of the Individual Lightning Lane for Rise of the Resistance varies by date, so you will have to check the Tip Board on the My Disney Experience app to find the exact price on your Hollywood Studios day. But while this price is subject to change, currently, the price is $22 per Guest. The price of Genie+ also varies by date, so just check the "Tip Board" tile on the app on that day. But to give you an idea, at this time, the price is also $22 (just remember, that price is subject to fluctuation).

    I definitely recommend checking out the helpful videos and information about the Disney Genie Service, Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes on the Walt Disney World website before your vacation. That way, you'll be prepared and ready to take full advantage of Genie's phenomenal cosmic powers on your adventure. May all your wishes be granted!

    I hope this was helpful, Rebecca, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable time! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you have. You ain't never had a friend like planDisney!

    See ya real soon,
