    Can you purchase both Individual Lightning Lane options and Genie+? Would there be a benefit of doing so? For example we will be at Epcot for only one day and may want to ride both Ratatouille and Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Hi Amy,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question!

    You can definitely purchase both Disney Genie+ Service and Individual Lightning Lanes for your Theme Park days. Keep in mind that guests are only permitted two Individual Lightning Lane purchases for the family each day. So in your example, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure would be your two Individual Lightning Lane reservations for the day. If you decide not to get an Individual Lightning Lane for Guardians, you’ll need to access the virtual queue via the My Disney Experience mobile app to have a chance to ride this attraction.

    Keep in mind that Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes are subject to availability. At 7:00 a.m., guests will be able to make their first Disney Genie+ selection within the My Disney Experience mobile app no matter where they are located. For Individual Lightning Lanes, if you’re staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, or Shades of Green, you’ll be able to purchase at 7:00 a.m. as well. If you aren’t staying in one of those hotels, Hakuna Matata, you’ll be able to purchase your Individual Lightning Lanes when the Theme Parks open.

    If you’d like to save a bit of time and you haven’t already purchased your Disney Genie+ Service, you can add it in advance! This way, at 7:00 a.m., you’ll be able to go straight into the app to make your first Disney Gene+ Lightning Lane selection.

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for the World’s Most Magical Celebration. If you have any other planning or vacation questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
