    Hi I’m a bit confused. Staying at the Hilton Lake Buena Vista Palace Disney Springs area Are we able to book individual LL at 7am or park opening 9am? Or is 8:30 considered open time as we do have early entry perk . Thanks

    Hi there, Teresa!

    Welcome back to planDisney - I'm so glad you stopped by with another question for our team of panelists. We all love helping Guests just like you plan magical Walt Disney World Resort vacations!

    Early Theme Park Entry is a magical benefit for registered Guests of the Disney Resorts Collection and other select hotels. With all the excitement surrounding the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration, that extra time in the parks can certainly help ensure you're able to experience it all!

    At this time, only registered Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, and Shades of Green are eligible to purchase Individual Lightning Lane selections starting at 7 a.m. each day. Unfortunately, this particular benefit does not currently apply to your hotel. All other Guests will need to wait until each Theme Park's standard opening time to book Individual Lightning Lane selections within a park.

    This means that even though you will be able to enter the park early, you will not be able to book Individual Lightning Lanes until the standard posted opening time of the park. It's also good to know that you do not need to enter a Theme Park or be physically present to make an Individual Lightning Lane selection for an attraction inside that park. Sometimes I make selections for a park I'm planning to hop to later in the day! If you have any questions about this once you are in the park, please locate a Guest Experience Team Cast Member - they'll be able to help you keep your day on track!

    I hope you find this information helpful as you continue planning - let me know if there are other questions we can help answer for you!
