    How can I get lightening pass.

    Hi Charles! Welcome to planDisney.

    Oh Boy! If I am reading correctly, you are currently immersed in The World's Most Magical Celebration at Walt Disney World Resort. No matter which parks you visit, take some time to look for the golden Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues. You can find Nemo to the right of the Tree of Life at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. While you are there, grab a specialty-themed treat like the 50th Anniversary Celebration Cupcake at Creature Comforts.

    Let's cover the basics of Lightning Lane options which will minimize your wait times in attraction queues. With the add-on of Disney's Genie+ Service to your Theme Park Ticket, you are eligible to purchase your first Lightning Lane selection at 7:00 AM. This feature may be added through the My Disney Experience Mobile App anytime after midnight on the day of a valid Theme Park Ticket and Disney Park Pass Reservation. Open the app, click on the three horizontal lines in the bottom right-hand corner, and tap "My Genie Day." Select "Get Disney Genie+ for Today" and follow the prompts to purchase. I highly suggest having that phone ready at 7:00 AM to snag your first choice. If your reservation is more than two hours out, you can make an additional selection once you have entered the theme park.

    Your other option which does not require the purchase of Disney Genie+ is those Individual Lightning Lane attractions. Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels, and Shades of Green®, are eligible to make Individual Lightning Lane purchases beginning at 7:00 AM. All other guests must wait until park opening to purchase.

    To make these purchases on the day of your theme park visit, select "Tip Board" on the mobile app for a list of attractions with time slots available for purchase.

    I hope this answer finds you in time to enjoy the benefits of Disney Genie Service and Lightning Lanes. If you need any further assistance stop by again at planDisney for tips and tricks from passionate Disney fans like yourself.

    Keeping it Magical,
