    Hello, can I purchase the extra LL (lighting Lane) add on, prior to arriving inside the park? My reservation dates are in April 2022. Tony

    Hello, Anthony! Welcome to planDisney!

    Wow, the countdown is on! Your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth is just about a month away! I'm glad you're sending us some last minute questions and finalizing your plans so you can let loose and enjoy the magic once you arrive! Speaking of magic, did you see the big news? Nighttime Spectaculars, including World of ColorDisneyland Forever fireworks and the Main Street Electrical parade are returning to the Disneyland Resort on April 22, 2022. This is just in time for you to catch the breathtaking shows during your stay!

    Anthony, Individual Lightning Lane purchases cannot be made in advance. Once you enter the turnstiles at the park you've reserved each day, you will become eligible to purchase Individual Lightning Lane attractions and select your return window. Unlike Disney Genie+, you'll be able to choose your return time as opposed to being given the first available slot. This gives you a little added flexibility in planning your park day! I'm a big believer in the whole "early bird catches the worm" theory, so I'd arrive to the parks as early as possible in order to have the most options for return times and grab these coveted slots before they sell out.

    If you're not already familiar, I'd take some time learning how to navigate the Disneyland Mobile App before you stay. The "Tip Board" will be a super important mobile destination for you to purchase those Individual Lightning Lane attractions. To locate it, tap the menu button in the bottom corner of the home screen. Select "Tip Board" and choose the park at the top. Here, you'll find current wait times, upcoming show times, the next available Disney Genie+ reservation and the Individual Lightning Lane options and pricing.

    I hope this helps clear things up for you today, Anthony! In short, just be prepared to hop on that Disneyland Mobile App as soon as you enter the park to purchase your Individual Lightning Lane attractions. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is calling your name!

    Until we meet again,
