    My husband will be joining us at HS later in the day (after work conference). Is it possible to purchase an ILL spot for him before his arrival, or does he have to be physically present in the park first? I know these sell out fast. Thank you!

    Hey there Niranda, it's so great to have you here at planDisney!

    Now I bet that your family is getting excited for your first visit to Walt Disney World Resort next month as part of your trip down with your husband's work conference. It's great that you'll be able to spend the day enjoying all of the fun at Disney's Hollywood Studios until he's ready to join you, and it sounds like you're interested in riding Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance together - undoubtedly one of the most popular ride experiences in Disney history!

    You'll be happy to hear that not only are you able to purchase Individual Lightning Lane Entry for this attraction, currently guests do not need to be within the theme parks in order to do so. As you mentioned however, at busier times of the year these highly-prized spots do tend to sell rather quickly so it's important to keep in mind the following key details about purchasing Individual Lightning Lane Entry so you're ready to snag them that morning:

    • Make sure that you have your My Disney Experience App ready with a reliable internet connection for you to be able to quickly check the Tip Board and complete your purchase for the members of your party.
    From my observations, the beginning of March tends to be comparatively easier for guests to be able to take advantage of this offering compared to later in the month when I've observed these selling out sooner. If you do end up being unsuccessful for any reason, I've also personally found it handy to hop into the Standby Queue right before Disney's Hollywood Studios closes for a chance to experience a lower than expected wait though this can never be guaranteed and may affect your ability to watch Fantasmic! that evening. In the meantime, stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news and updates and come back to planDisney again for any other tips or advice from our team before you head down here!

    May you snag the Individual Lightning Lane spots that you seek!
