    Do you have to use your first pay per ride lightening lane pass before you can buy one for another ride?

    Hello Courtney,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Your summer vacation will be here before you know it, and it sounds like you are really thinking through all of the details now so you can focus on making magical memories!

    Individual Lightning Lane purchases work much differently than the Lightning Lane selections you can make with Genie+. For starters, you can only purchase 2 per guest, per day. Having said that, there is no wait time required between purchases. If you are a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest, you'll be able to purchase up to 2 Individual Lightning Lane selections at 7:00 AM. If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you'll be able to make those purchases when the park that you have a reservation for officially opens for the day. Some attractions, like Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance often run out of Individual Lightning Lanes by this time.

    The other great thing about Individual Lightning Lane purchases is that you can select your return times if there are multiple times available. I like to pick times that are mid-morning, when I know the parks are going to start getting crowded, and later in the evenings when I'll be hopping to another park. 

    Right now, there is only one attraction in each park that is available as an Individual Lightning Lane option, so you'll need to add the Park Hopper Option to your tickets if you plan on purchasing more than one per day. Having said this, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT will have an Individual Lightning Lane option, and right now Remy's Ratatouille Adventure has one, so that could be a park where you could make your 2 purchases without being able to park hop.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
