    Do you need to purchase genie plus to purchase individual lightning lanes?

    Hey there Stacie,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for this great question! I love the convenience that comes with utilizing Lightning Lanes when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. My wife and I have two kiddos so it definitely helps when we can stand in those shorter queues.

    You can think of Lightning Lanes and Individual Lightning Lanes as two separate buckets. When you purchase Disney Genie+ Service, you get access to book Lightning Lane return times to some of the most popular attractions in the parks. From my experience, you can typically fit in anywhere from 2-4 additional attractions this way if you're strategic about how and when you book your return times.

    There are also a few attractions where the Individual Lightning Lane is utilized. You can think of these as one-off and "Á La Carte" since you purchase them each separately for specific attractions. You do not need to have purchased Disney Genie+ Service to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane return time.

    In my opinion, if you really have your sights set on a specific attraction that offer the Individual Lightning Lane and have the wiggle room in your budget, these are absolutely worth it. 

    I hope that helps, Stacie! Thank you again for your question and enjoy your next trip to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Have a Magical Day,
