    I made a reservation for Animal Kingdom on my day 2 and will park hop to Hollywood Studios in the afternoon. Can I buy Individual Lightning Lane for Rise of Resistance at 7am when it is opened?(I will be staying at All-star resort)

    Hi Eunbin, welcome to planDisney!

    Cinderella's coach took her to the ball, but your Disney Resorts Collection hotel bus is taking you all around Walt Disney World Resort! The early bird gets the shortest standby line wait times, so I encourage you to take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry each park day. At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, my family heads straight for Kilimanjaro Safaris. This is a cool time of day, both in terms of temperature and animal sighting opportunities.

    As the Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can purchase up to two Individual Lightning Lanes per day at 7:00 a.m. via the Tip Board of the My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the app's home page --> Tip Board --> "Change Park," if necessary --> Scroll to desired attraction --> Click "LL Individual Lightning Lane" box --> confirm your party --> select an arrival window).

    Thanks to your ticket with the Park Hopper Option, you can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for an attraction at any theme park at 7:00 a.m. With a theme park reservation for Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, arrival windows for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney's Hollywood Studios will begin at 2:00 p.m., which is when park hopping begins. I recommend selecting an arrival window that begins no earlier than 2:30 p.m. so you have plenty of time to walk from the entrance of Disney's Hollywood Studios to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. During my visit last month, complimentary bus transportation from Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to Disney's Hollywood Studios began at 1:30 p.m. each day.  

    My family splurged on an Individual Lighting Lane for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance during our stay, and it was the best decision we made that day. We saved ourselves a 3-hour wait in the standby line, which gave us extra time to explore Batuu. We even got to meet the Mandalorian and Grogu in the Marketplace.  

    I'm no Fairy Godmother, but it's been a pleasure sharing some magical news with you today, Eunbin. Please stop by and see us again soon!
