    Hello, Planning a trip to Epcot & hope to use the genie+ system. I’m wondering if my spouse can make a reservation for the guardians virtual que on his phone simultaneous while I am making our first lighting lane reservation at 7am?

    Hey Howdy Hey Daren and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you so much for stopping by with your question about Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane Entry selections. I will be happy to help you navigate these waters to better help plan your day in EPCOT. 

    Just as a quick review, with Genie+, you can purchase Genie+ through your My Disney Experience app on the day of your park visit. Lightning Lane Entry selections are open to everyone with Genie+ starting at 7:00 AM EST regardless of hotel accommodations. 

    With Individual Lightning Lane Entry selections, only Guests staying onsite at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel or qualifying hotel can make their selections starting at 7:00 AM EST. As of this writing, the qualifying resorts are the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and Shades of Green Resort. 

    That all being said, if you and your spouse were staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel and both making separate reservations, Lightning Lane and Individual Lightning Lane selections, as long as you are connected and sharing plans on the My Disney Experience app, this should work. 

    One tip that I have for you when you are planning your day involves when to book your Lightning Lane and Individual Lightning Lane selections. If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel you can take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry. This allows you into the parks 30 minutes before the park opens and allows you to get a jump on experiencing some of the more popular attractions without big lines. Save your Lightning Lane Entry selections or Individual Lightning Lane purchases for later morning or early afternoon when the park attendance usually peaks giving you quicker access to more attractions! 

    Best of luck as you continue to plan for your upcoming trip. Please feel free to reach back out with any questions you may have, we are always happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
