    Hello! If you are not staying at a Disney resort, when can you purchase Lightning Lane passes for individual rides?

    Hey Howdy Hey Ashley and welcome to planDisney!

    How exciting it is to have a trip to Walt Disney World Resort just days away! Thank you for stopping by with your question about Individual Lightning Lane purchases. Let's get this wagon train a-movin' and get you some answers! 

    Individual Lightning Lane purchases are so nice to have if you want to experience some of the more popular attractions on your upcoming trip. This will not only secure your spot in line but also give you peace of mind on a specific return time to better plan your day. Guests staying offsite from a Disney Resorts Collection hotel or other qualifying resorts will be able to purchase their Individual Lightning Lanes starting when the park officially opens. Make sure you check on the park hours for your upcoming trip so you can plan to make your purchase accordingly! 

    The other option you will have for reducing wait times in lines and enjoying more of the parks is the purchase of Genie+. With Genie+, you will have access to booking Lightning Lane entrance return times for so many attractions in the parks. Just note that many of these selections do not include ones that are available with Individual Lightning Lane purchases. This will give you access to shorter wait times as well and more time enjoying all there is to offer in the parks. Guests wanting to purchase Genie+ can do so the day of their park visit and make the first Lightning Lane selection starting at 7:00 AM EST no matter where you are staying. 

    I hope you have a rootin' tootin' good time on your upcoming trip. Please feel free to stop back with any other questions you may have, we are always happy to help!

    To infinity and beyond,
