    There are 4 people in my party. Should we all try to purchase individual lightening lanes or just designate one person. We are all linked together

    Hey there, Jacqueline, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question!

    Springtime is one of my favorite times for a Walt Disney World Vacation. And this spring is extra special! With The World’s Most Magical Celebration in full swing and the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival in bloom - you couldn’t have picked a better time to visit.

    Jacqueline, I personally like the divide and conquer approach! However, if your party does plan to share the responsibility, make sure to coordinate and communicate your plans. If you’re staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can book your first Genie+ attraction and purchase Individual Lightning Lane entrances starting at 7 a.m. the morning of your Theme Park Day. So if there are attractions that you want to ride that will make or break your Disney Vacation, here is my preferred strategy for parties that are already linked together through the Family & Friends List

    At the 7 a.m. reservation drop, I would assign one person to book the first Genie+ reservation, one person to book an Individual Lightning Lane Entrance, and one person to book another Individual Lightning Lane Entrance (for parks that have more than one Individual Lightning Lane.) Even if the reservations book quickly, this strategy will give you an advantage versus one person trying to book all three. 

    After the morning reservation rush and you are in the parks, I recommend designating one person as the keeper of the Genie+ reservations. This is usually my job on our trips, and I take great pride in it! 

    If you want more information on Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes, here’s a link to a recent answer for a Guest

    I hope this helps, Jacqueline. Your Disney Vacation awaits!

    Until Next Time,
