    Dan from CO Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    We have held off getting tickets as we thought we had to wait for LL+ later this month. If we get our tickets and room now can we add LL+ later this month when avail? We are going Sept 8th thru 15th.

    Hi Dan! Thanks for coming to planDisney! You brought a great question!

    Yes, proceed with booking your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! You can book your hotel and purchase your tickets through the Walt Disney World Resort website. Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can add the new Lightning Lane Single Pass and/or Lightning Lane Multi Pass seven days before their vacation arrival date. Guests staying at other resorts can add the new Lightning Lanes three days before their park visit.

    So, I recommend proceeding with your vacation booking as soon as you’re ready, then mark your calendar for seven days (if staying on property) or three days (if staying off property) to make your Lightning Lane purchases and selections via the My Disney Experience app. Based upon your September 8, 2024 arrival date, you can make your Lightning Lane purchases and selections on September 1, 2024 (if staying on property).

    Dan, I’m excited about the changes coming to Lightning Lanes! I think it will be a great enhancement to the Guest experience at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Dreams do come true!
