    Hi! I'm staying at the Boardwalk Inn and want to book the Rise of the Resistance Lightening Lane on check-in day. If I haven't 'checked-in' yet at 7:00 am, can I still book the Lightening Lane? How will the system register me? Thanks!!

    Hey there Lola and welcome to planDisney!

    You've got quite an adventurous spirit. An early 20th-century boardwalk paradise and a galaxy far, far, away all in the same day?! I'd say you've got a great day all mapped out for you! Let's get your fabulous arrival day all organized for fun!

    Your adventure starts as soon as your arrival date arrives! You're free to use the Disney Genie+ Service to book your Lightning Lanes at 7:00 AM on your arrival day by rights of having that booking at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel on that day. Even if you haven't checked in to Disney's Boardwalk Inn yet, you can still check in to start mapping out that Disney Day. 

    Pro-tip: Lola, you should be using that Online Check-In feature! Open up that My Disney Experience app and tap that Start Check-In Now button located under your resort reservation. You can specify what time you think you'll arrive at your hotel and everything. Even though standard resort check-in time is at 4:00 PM, the Cast Members will do their very best to accommodate early arrivals. I've personally had pretty good luck with early check-ins. Even if you do have to wait for your room. Just drop your luggage off at the Bells Services desk and go exploring. From the sound of things, you aren't too interested in hanging out in that room right away anyhow!

    Lola, I hope I've given you the tools you need to make your arrival day a fabulous one. Good luck with booking that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Lightning Lane!

    Happy planning!
