    Hi, I’m going to Disney land and I went to Disney world last year. Do I get my first lightening lanes at 6am like I did at Disney world?

    Happiest greetings Betty,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for submitting your question to us!

    I always feel like the Genie with “infinite cosmic power!” when I maximize my visit to the Disneyland Resort by using Disney Genie+. Lightning Lanes are such a great way to save time and energy in the parks, so you can enjoy more in your day!

    If you purchased Disney Genie+ with your theme park tickets, you can make your first selection once you’ve scanned into the parks. Be sure to get to the parks early for rope drop, so you get first pick of the select Lightning Lane attractions available. I like to browse the attractions that offer Lightning Lane before entering the parks and deciding which one I feel like riding first that day. 

    To select your Lightning Lane, log into your Disney account on the Disneyland app and click on the (☰) at the bottom right-hand of the screen. Next, click on "LL Rides, Shows & Lightning Lane Entry” at the top right side under your Disney character avatar. You'll be directed to the "Tip Board" where you can see a list of attractions, their current standby line wait time, and Lightning Lane return time. From here, simply book whichever Lightning Lane you wish to experience and return at that time to the attraction!

    If you have other questions about the Disneyland Resort, remember - "you ain't never had a friend like me!"
