    Can one purchase Individual Lightening Lane passes at 7am if staying at Drury Disney Springs Orlando 4/2024 ?

    Hi there, Ian, and welcome to planDisney!

    How exciting that you'll be in the middle of the magic in just TWO days! I'm sure you're excitedly anticipating all of the magical moments, delicious snacks, and thrilling attractions that await you. There's no time to waste, so let's get right to your question!

    Like you, I'm always aiming to maximize magic and minimize waits (especially for my favorite attractions) during our magical vacations, and the purchase of Disney Genie+ service and individual Lightning Lanes is the practically perfect way to do just that. While all Guests can purchase Disney Genie+ service beginning at midnight each day they hold a valid theme park ticket and make their first Lightning Lane selection at 7 AM, only Guests of Disney Resort hotels are able to purchase individual Lightning Lane entrances at that time.

    Although the Drury Plaza Hotel - Disney Springs Area is a Walt Disney World Official Hotel making Guests eligible for select perks such as early theme park entry, the purchase of individual Lightning Lane entrances before a theme park opens for the day remains an exclusive benefit available to Guests of Disney Resort hotels, Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and Shades of Green Resort. Even though you will need to wait until each theme park opens for the day to make your individual Lightning Lane purchases, I've never struggled to secure one for my desired attraction when I begin the process as soon as it becomes available. 

    Now that we've handled logistics, let's get to the magic! I think you'll love visiting Walt Disney World Resort in April. In my opinion, with its warm (but not too warm) temperatures, longer days, and the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival in full swing, it's the best time of year to find yourself in the middle of the magic. A spring visit never ceases to remind me why we call it The Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    I hope this was helpful, Ian, and that you have the opportunity to stop by my favorite Disney Springs restaurant, The BOATHOUSE, during your stay. If you have any additional questions or are in need of recommendations during your vacation, don't hesitate to stop back by. I'm always happy to help!
