    How far in advance can we book attractions/rides?

    Hiya Melissa and welcome to planDisney!

    I just got back from my own visit to the Walt Disney World Resort and I'm so glad to be helping you plan yours. I definitely made the most of my time there and got in as many attractions as I could to keep me feeling the magic until the next time. And the new Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ Services make it easy to do directly in your My Disney Experience app. I'm happy to share all I know with you!

    If you're a Guest at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you'll be able to book Lightning Lanes, purchase Individual Lightning Lanes, and enter Virtual Queues for rides for attractions like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind as early as 7 AM on the day of your visit to a park. Guests staying at other hotels will be eligible to start making those selections at the time of park opening. 

    Pro-tip: If you plan on purchasing Disney Genie+ Service make sure to do so earlier than 7 AM. This way you won't waste valuable attraction choosing time.

    Melissa, I'm wishing you as much pixie dust as I had in snagging the Lightning Lanes you want. In the meantime, if you have any other questions, please feel free to come back for another chat!

    Happy planning!
