    As a park hopping Disney Resort guest, am I able to purchase an individual lightning lane reservation at 7:00 am for my second park of the day, even though I won't have a reservation for that park?

    Hello Kevin,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. These next few weeks will fly by, and before you know it you'll be joining The World's Most Magical Celebration!

    As a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest you'll be able to make your Individual Lightning selections beginning at 7:00 AM. Guests can only purchase Individual Lighting Lanes for 2 attractions per day, and right now most parks only have one attraction available. However, since you've added the Park Hopper Option to your tickets you'll be able to purchase 2 Individual Lightning Lanes right at 7:00 AM. When you go to purchase a Lightning Lane in a park where you don't have a reservation, you'll only be able to select return times for 2:00 PM or later. 

    So, if you have a reservation for Disney's Animal Kingdom but plan to hop over to Magic Kingdom later in the day, you'll be able to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Avatar Flight of Passage and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train right at 7:00 AM, before you've even entered a park. 

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
