    Heather from LA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Do you need to purchase Lightning Lanes for every day of your trip, and if you already have, can you remove it from some days of your trip?

    Hey howdy hey Heather and welcome to planDisney! The addition of Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane selections has made navigating the parks so much more efficient and a great way to avoid the big lines. The even better part about these two offerings is the flexibility of them both. 

    Neither one is required for your day in the parks, they just make navigating much easier by avoiding waiting in stand-by lines for the more popular attractions. First off with Genie+, which you can purchase in advance when you buy your tickets. With the purchase of Genie+, you have access to Lightning Lane selections of more than 40 attractions across all 4 theme parks. You can make these selections at 7:00 a.m. on the morning of your park reservation day for Guest staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel or at park open if staying offsite. With Individual Lightning Lane selections, these are for select attractions in parks which are the more popular attractions. The Individual Lightning Lane selections can be purchased on the day of your park reservation and are specific time frames that you select for these attractions. These are available for purchase at 7:00 a.m. for Disney Resorts Collection Hotel Guests or at park open for Guests staying offsite. 

    Neither one of these purchases is refundable or transferable but both are highly recommended to maximize your time in the theme parks. One of the most precious resources while in the parks is time. These options allow you to significantly limit how much time you spend waiting in lines and are able to maximize the time you have with things you enjoy. Plus, they leave so much more time to explore the food offerings in each park, and don't get me started on the food! 

    If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out, we love talking all things Walt Disney World Resort here at planDisney. 

    Happy planning,
