    Do you need Genie+ to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane?

    It's great to see you here today at planDisney, Cindy! Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes are my favorite time-saving tech tools at Walt Disney World Resort, and I'm happy to talk you through some of the finer points about how they work so you can make the most of your time on your upcoming vacation. 

    Cindy, you do not need to purchase Disney Genie+ service to be able to purchase Individual Lightning Lane return times for the select attractions. These two reservation systems work independently, so you don't need to purchase one to access the other. You can either use Disney Genie+ service or purchase Individual Lightning Lanes, or you can choose to do both if you want!

    When you're on your trip to Walt Disney World Resort, it's important to remember the time that Individual Lightning Lanes go on sale. If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you can purchase up to two Individual Lightning Lane return times for different attractions beginning at 7:00 AM in the My Disney Experience app. For instance, if you're starting your day at Magic Kingdom Park and hopping to Disney's Hollywood Studios later in the day, you can purchase Individual Lightning Lane Return times for both TRON Lightcycle / Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at 7:00 AM. If you are staying somewhere else off Disney property, you can begin purchasing Individual Lightning Lane access when the Theme Park you're visiting officially opens for the day.

    I hope this answers your question, Cindy, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
