    How do I get Lightening Lane access? I bought my ticket, but it didn't ask me to specify which park - is that ok?

    Hiya, Priya! Welcome to planDisney!

    Can you believe that your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth is just two sleeps away?! I imagine you're feeling a bit like Cinderella waiting for the clock to strike midnight! Before you arrive, I'd love to help you add a few finishing touches to your magical vacation.

    It sounds like you've purchased your tickets and are ready to make your Theme Park reservations! Making Theme Park reservations with the Disney Park Pass system is the best way to reserve the parks you wish to visit for each day of your trip. Take a peek at the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar, grab your magic wand, and let's get started!

    First, log into your account online. Hover your mouse over the My Disney Experience tab and click My Plans. Scroll down the page until you see the icon that says Park Reservations. Hover your mouse over that icon and click Make a Park Reservation. Here, you can create your party, choose a day on the calendar, and select a park you'd like to visit. Continue until you've made reservations for all of your Theme Park Tickets!

    Priya, I would also love to tell you about Lightning Lane entrances! Lightning Lane selections allow you to reserve a time to experience a ride or attraction, which helps to minimize waits and maximize the fun! You can choose rides with the Disney Genie+ service, which offers Lightning Lane entrances to over 40 rides across all the parks. You can also select Individual Lightning Lane entrances, which lets you reserve times for some of the most popular rides! The great thing is you can purchase either option or both - if you choose both Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane entrances, you can select rides from both categories. 

    You can purchase the Disney Genie+ service on any or all days of your trip! This purchase can be made through your My Disney Experience app any time after midnight on the day you'd like to use it. Once you purchase the Disney Genie+ service, you can begin making your ride and attraction selections at 7:00 AM. To get your favorite rides at your desired times, I'd recommend making your selections right at 7:00 - some people even use a countdown clock!

    You can purchase any Individual Lightning Lane entrances the same way! For Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can start making your selections at 7:00 AM. If you're staying off property, you can begin making your selections at the time of park opening. 

    Also, check out the amazing advice from my fellow panelist, Alyssa! She's a pro at maximizing the number of rides and attractions by using Disney Genie+ service and Individual Lightning Lane entrances!

    I hope I was able to help you with your magical travel plans, Priya! If you have any other questions, I hope you fly your magic carpet our away again. 

    You've got a friend in me!
