    We have park hopper tix which require park reservations b/c we bought thru my husband's conference. We plan to purchase Genie + for multiple parks. Can I make LL reservations at any park for my husband even before he has tapped into his reserved park?

    Hey Howdy Hey Colleen and welcome back to planDisney!

    I bet you all are getting super excited about your upcoming trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth in just a few short days! There is so much to look forward to when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in the spring but before we get into all the excitement around the parks, let's talk about Genie+ and Lightning Lanes. 

    It sounds like you have everything right so far Colleen. You did need and already have your theme park tickets and reservations. You do have the Park Hopper Option on your tickets and when you do purchase Genie+, you can select the Multiple Parks Option to have Genie+ access no matter which park you are in. You are ahead of the game at this point! 

    The benefit of having the Park Hopper Option and Genie+ is your strategy for making Lightning Lane selections. Starting at 7:00 AM, you can make your first Lightning Lane selection at any theme park. You will be prompted for a relative return time you can select so you and/or your husband know about what time you need to be in that particular theme park. So you and your husband might want to stack your Lightning Lane selections for a park in the mid-afternoon when the parks are usually at their busiest. 

    As Nilson had mentioned, the rules for making Lightning Lane selections start at 7:00 AM on your park day. You can then make your next selection after you redeem your first or 2 hours after the theme park officially opens to Guests. With Lightning Lanes, you do not have to be in the park to make these selections either. 

    If you do have very specific attractions you want to experience, you can also look into the purchase of Individual Lightning Lane selections. These are available for certain attractions in each park and when you purchase them, there are specific return times for the attraction to experience. They are available for attractions such as TRON Lightcycle / Run in Magic Kingdom or Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT. This can be a super easy way to guarantee your spot in line at a specific time. 

    I hope your upcoming trip is full of Magical memories and a fun time. Please feel free to reach back out with any further questions you may have, we are always happy to help!

    Have a Magical day,
