    Can I purchase an individual lighting lane for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind if my first park is not Epcot and also not staying at a resort on property? For example, if my first park is Magic Kingdom and want to stay there until 3-4pm

    Hello, Noel. Welcome to planDisney!

    As long as you have the Park Hopper Option added to your theme park ticket (or you are an Annual Passholder that has a Theme Park Reservation or visiting on a Good-to-go day), you will be able to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for a park other than the one you are visiting first as long as there is availability. However, currently, if you are not staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you will need to wait until the park at which the attraction is located opens for the day to purchase it as only hotel guests will be able to make these particular reservations at 7 a.m. So in your case, if EPCOT opens at 9 a.m., you can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at that time (subject to availability). When you go to purchase your Individual Lightning Lane, you will have a choice of available times and will select the one that works best for you. Just don't hesitate as these sell out very quickly.

    If you are also looking to purchase the Disney Genie+ Service for the day, you can do so each morning of your visit. But unlike Individual Lightning Lanes, you can currently make your first Lightning Lane reservation through the Disney Genie+ Service at included attractions at 7 a.m. And I highly recommend that you do this! Some attractions fill up very quickly. For EPCOT, the ones that typically fill up the quickest are Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and Frozen Ever After. They will probably fill up even quicker once Test Track goes down for its exciting transformation on June 17, 2024. As for Magic Kingdom Park, Peter Pan's Flight and Jungle Cruise are usually the Lightning Lanes that fill up the quickest.

    Noel, best wishes with getting your top choice of time for saving the galaxy alongside the Guardians. Tell Nova Prime I say hello! In the meantime, if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to send them directly to me.

    Fingers crossed you get "Conga,"
