    If I purchase an ILL at 7a for Rise and am running late for my time, can I push out the time to the evening?

    Welcome to planDisney, Diane. Let's talk about one of my favorite services to take advantage of right now: Individual Lightning Lanes!

    While I don't mind waiting for some attractions in the standby queue, especially if it's a very well-themed and interactive one, I really enjoy the option to purchase an Individual Lighting Lane and/or the Disney Genie+ Service to access a shorter wait in the Lightning Lane. As you likely know, at this time, Individual Lightning Lanes go on sale for the most popular attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort at 7 a.m. for Guests staying in a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel and when the park opens for all other Guests. And sometimes they get booked up very quickly, so it's important to book them as soon as possible.

    While Lightning Lanes reserved through the Disney Genie+ Service can often be modified or canceled, Individual Lightning Lanes cannot. However, with Individual Lightning Lanes, you can choose the time that works best for you (subject to availability). As such, you'll want to choose a time for which you know you'll be in the park. So, if a time in the evening works better for you, I'd select an evening return time as once these reservations have been purchased, they cannot be changed regardless of when you arrive at the park.

    It's also important to note that when you book an Individual Lightning Lane, you are booking an hour window. So there's a little bit of flexibility. For example, if your window starts at 11 a.m., you have until 12 p.m. to redeem it. You don't have to be there exactly at 11 a.m. But like I said before, you'll want to think carefully about the time that you choose and err on the side of caution. If you think it might be hard for you to get to Disney's Hollywood Studios early in the morning, don't select an early morning time for your window to begin!

    Diane, if you haven't yet experienced Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, you're in for a treat. And if you have, well, you already know the treat you're in for, and hopefully you'll get to notice details you didn't notice the first time(s) you rode it! That's what I love about attractions at the Disney Parks: there's always something new to discover!

    If you have any other questions, feel free to send them my way!
