    Can you purchase a lightning lane ticket ahead of your arrival day?

    Hi Peggy, welcome to planDisney!

    Your upcoming trip to the Disneyland Resort is the perfect timing, as you'll be visiting during the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival! The food, art, and entertainment are going to be amazing, you're going to have so much fun!

    And great planning on your part for looking into the Lightning Lane entrance options ahead of time. To access the Lightning Lane entrances, you have two options. The first option is to purchase the individual Lightning Lane entrance access through the Disneyland Mobile app, which I believe is what you're inquiring about. These can only be purchased after you've entered one of the theme parks, and they are limited to two attractions per day. The attractions currently available through this option are Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, and Radiator Springs Racers.

    The second option for accessing the Lightning Lane entrances is using the Disney Genie+ service. This can be purchased as an add-on to your ticket or vacation package. If you haven't added Genie+ to your ticket or vacation package before your visit, you can always purchase it through the Disneyland Mobile app after entering one of the theme parks. Genie+ allows you to schedule arrival windows, one at a time, for Lightning Lane entrances at certain attractions.

    For the current prices and the latest listing of all the attractions included through the Lightning Lane entrance access, please take a look at the Disneyland Resort website!

    And of course, if you have any additional questions, come back to visit us!

    See ya real soon!
