    If we purchase individual lightning lanes for an attraction (Rise of the Resistance, Cosmic Rewind, etc.) and a member of our party opts out of riding, can we receive a refund for that lightning lane purchase?

    Hi there, Erin, and welcome back to planDisney! 

    I'm definitely that thrill-seeking mom at the Most Magical Place on Earth. Attractions like TRON Lightcycle / Run and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind are the highlights of my trips. Of course, sometimes not everyone in your party is down for the ride and rather seek other types of thrills. So, let's get into what happens if someone changes their mind about experiencing some of the attractions you've mentioned. 

    The prices for Individual Lightning Lane purchases vary depending on each attraction and by date. The purchases are non-refundable and non-transferable, so I strongly recommend that everyone in the party is sure about if they want to ride the attraction before you purchase their access.

    I have a few tips to help you decide, Erin. First, before my 6-year-old rode Slinky Dog Dash at Disney's Hollywood Studios, I showed him videos of front-row point-of-view rides on social media sites. He and I even pretended to ride the attraction at home using an old slinky toy and our imaginations. By the time he was tall enough to ride it, he was ready to go!     
    AN EXTRA GEM: Also, if your party is large enough and you arrive earlier in your return time window, perhaps one group can ride the attraction first. For example, the second group can explore Batuu at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge while the first group rides Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Then, when you're done riding, report your experience to the party member who wasn't sure. This may give them the extra boost of confidence that they need to take on the First Order. 

    Erin, if you have any other questions about your upcoming vacation (it's almost here--eek!), please revisit us here at planDisney. I hope that your family has the BEST time next month!

    Magic always,
