    Hi! If I’m meeting friends that are NOT staying on property but we are, and our accounts are linked, can I purchase ILL attractions like Remy for the whole group? Or does the app recognize if they are not on property?

    Hi Lisa!

    I can see that your trip is"just around the riverbend!" How exciting! The new Disney Genie & Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane can be a little tricky to navigate at first, but I'm happy to help!

    If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you will have the ability to purchase Individual Lightning Lane attractions at 7 a.m. on the day you'd like to visit that attraction. You will be able to make these purchases only for the Guests in your party who are staying at Disney Resorts Collection Hotels or other qualifying hotels, including Walt Disney World Swan HotelWalt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and Shades of Green®. Unfortunately, that means you will not have the option to select Guests that are staying off-site, even if they are linked to your account. The My Disney Experience app does indeed recognize which Guests are staying on property based on the information on your reservation. Your friends who are staying off-site can purchase Individual Lightning Lane selections when the park opens for the day.

    With that said, I would recommend double-checking that you've linked your Disney Resort Hotel reservation and make sure all Guests staying with you are listed on the reservation! This will avoid any mishaps on the morning of your Individual Lightning Lane purchase.

    Lisa, I did see that you are specifically interested in riding Remy's Ratatouille Adventure. I've had the chance to ride this a few times now and it has quickly become one of my favorites in all of Walt Disney World! I can't wait for you to try it, too! I do have some news that may help you experience this ride with your whole group. Remy's Ratatouille Adventure is no longer using a virtual queue system. This means that there will now be a standby line for this attraction. If you're unable to get individual Lightning Lane reservations for your whole group, you at least have the option to go together through the standby line. 

    I hope I've helped make your planning a little smoother and you're able to "paint with all the colors of the wind" on your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth!
