    Can you make both a Genie+ Lightning Lane reservation and an a-la-carte Individual Lightning Lane reservation at 7:00 am?

    Hey Howdy Hey Mike and welcome back to planDisney!

    Thank you so much for your question on the details of booking Lightning Lane and Individual Lightning Lane entries. I will be happy to review the specifics with you so can be prepared to make your selections during your stay. 

    Let's quickly review the booking policy for each. With the purchase of Genie+, you get access to Lightning Lane Entry reservations which will give you quick access to many attractions in each park to spend more time enjoying the park rather than in the lines! Guests may purchase Genie+ after midnight on the day they plan to visit the parks but the first Lightning Lane Entry reservation can be made at 7:00 AM. The next one can be made 2 hours after the park officially opens or after you tap into your first Lightning Lane selection. 

    With Individual Lightning Lane Entry selections, these work just a bit differently than the standard Lightning Lane with Genie+. With Individual Lightning Lanes, you do not have to purchase Genie+ and you can just purchase the attractions in this category. Guests staying onsite at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel or other select hotels can start making their purchases and selections at 7:00 AM on the day of their visit. All other Guests will be able to make their purchases when the park officially opens. 

    So specifically to your question, if you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel or other qualifying hotels, you can make both starting at 7 AM. If staying off-site, you can make your first Lightning Lane selection at 7 AM but Individual Lightning Lane purchase when the park opens.

    Make sure to check online or on your My Disney Experience app for the specific details of attractions that qualify for Lightning Lane and Individual Lightning Lane purchases so you know which attractions you might be able to experience with their respective booking processes. 

    Best of luck as you are making your final arrangements for your upcoming trip. Please feel free to reach out and let us know if you have any further questions, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
