    On the first day of our visit, we will be coming into the park after opening (around 11:00). Are we allowed to purchase the individual lightening lane pass after the park opens at 9:00, even though we won’t be in the park at that time?

    Welcome to planDisney, Cindy! Thanks for coming by with your question today; before you know it, you'll be arriving at the Most Magical Place on Earth for your summer vacation, and taking advantage of Individual Lightning Lanes is a great summertime strategy to minimize your wait times at some of the most popular attractions in the parks!

    Purchases for Individual Lightning Lanes are available for guests of Disney Resort hotels starting at 7 AM EST and for all other guests at park opening time. To purchase an Individual Lightning Lane selection, you are not required to be inside of the theme park, so you can make your purchase from virtually anywhere at the appropriate time! 

    The attractions that currently offer Individual Lightning Lanes include:
    Cindy, since you are planning a later arrival to the parks, you may also want to consider purchasing the Disney Genie+ Service; you can start making your selections for the day at 7 AM and stacking your return times for later in the afternoon to accommodate your plans. I love this strategy, knowing that when I do arrive, I'll have a few attractions lined up to make the most of my time! Also keep in mind that if you are visiting EPCOT or Magic Kingdom Park, you can also try to snag a complimentary Virtual Queue boarding group for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind or TRON Lightcycle/Run. While you aren't able to select your return time, it doesn't hurt to try and hope that the pixie dust will work in your favor for a return time that suits your schedule!

    Cindy, I'm sending you magical vacation wishes and hope you have the best luck securing your Individual Lightning Lanes for all of your favorite attractions! If you have any other questions before your trip, come on back and ask me again! I've got the pixie dust ready and waiting!

    Magic Awaits,
