    How far in advance can lightning lane passes be purchased?

    Welcome to planDisney, Angela and thanks for swinging by our part of the galaxy! 

    Angela, I'm so happy to chat with you about Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes! On my last family trip we used both options on different days depending on our priorities in each park. Since you asked about advanced purchase, let's talk about getting started. 

    If your question was more geared toward the Individual Lightning Lane purchases (currently available for these four attractions: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT), these can be purchased the day of your visit, beginning as soon as the park opens OR at 7:00 am if you are Disney Resort Hotel guest. 

    If your question was asking about Disney Genie+ that allows you to pay one fee per day with access to book multiple attractions, that service can be purchased beginning at midnight on the day of your visit with selection of Lightning Lanes beginning at 7:00 am. 

    Angela, I'll encourage you to take a close look at THIS PAGE that gives a great overview of both options. I also recommend making sure you have the most updated version of the My Disney Experience Mobile App as you'll use this to purchase Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane selections. 

    I hope this helps as you're looking ahead to your upcoming visit. With so much to see and do, I know you'll have a truly Magical time. Please come on back to planDisney with any additional questions and as my pal Mickey would say, we'll "see ya real soon!"
