    If I purchase the lightning pass with my tickets how far in advance can I make my selection? We will not be staying on site.

    Hi Leslie, welcome to planDisney!

    Your visit to Walt Disney World is fast approaching. In one month you will be laying eyes on Cinderella Castle and within mobile order distance of a DOLE Whip. Life doesn't get much sweeter than that! While there aren't any Lightning Lane reservations that will help your trip get here any sooner, I'm happy to help you strategize for maximizing the magic on your upcoming park days. 

    There are two ways to take advantage of Lightning Lane entrances, which guarantee a minimal wait time for attractions. Disney Genie+ Lighting Lane entrance access to over 40 attractions throughout the four theme parks can be reserved beginning at 7:00 a.m. on each park day. If you plan on purchasing Disney Genie+ service on the morning of your park day(s), be sure to make that purchase in your My Disney Experience mobile app before 6:30 a.m. so you are in your Tip Board ready to select your first Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m. on the dot (home screen --> My Day --> Tip Board). The next available arrival window for your first attraction will be relatively early when you book right at seven, though some attractions like Slinky Dog Dash at Disney's Hollywood Studios can run out of arrival windows in minutes.  

    Individual Lightning Lane entrance access for two of the most popular rides at each theme park can be booked one at a time beginning at 7:00 a.m. for Disney Resorts Collection hotel Guests and at park opening for Guests staying off Disney property. Pricing and availability are subject to change, so be sure to check the My Disney Experience mobile app for day-of pricing and availability. Unlike Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane selections, you may choose from all available arrival windows for Individual Lightning Lane purchases. 

    In addition to using your Tip Board to make Lightning Lane reservations, Leslie, you should also keep an eye on the wait times for standby lines in the My Disney Experience app throughout your park days. This Disney data is a powerful time-saving tool, especially when paired with the interactive park maps that are included as part of the complimentary Disney Genie service for all Guests in the My Disney Experience app. 

    Asking questions is a great way to pass the time before your visit to The World's Most Magical Celebration. We hope to see you at planDisney again real soon.
