    When purchasing individual lighting lanes the day of, do I have to purchase for everyone in my party or can I just purchase for those wanting to ride? Not everyone in our party is a fan of roller coasters.

    Hello, Aney!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for stopping by to visit us with your important planning question. It is so important to make the best use of your time while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. So many new experiences have been created for the 50th Anniversary Celebration. You will not want to miss Disney’s Fab 50 Character Collection, which consists of 50 golden statues of everyone’s favorite Disney Characters. You will discover them on display across all 4 theme parks. They are perfectly poised for a photo op or even a selfie with you. Can you find them all?

    The Individual Lightning Lane option is an a la carte service, where a Guest can purchase the option to skip the standby lane of the most popular attractions in the parks. Prices vary depending on the attraction, date of your visit, and the park. Prices can range from $12-$18 per person and are subject to change. The great thing about the Individual Lightning Lane option is that it is completely optional for any or all members of your party. Thrill riders will be happy to take advantage of this option, but the low thrill or no thrill riders in your group can opt-out by not purchasing a spot to ride. 

    Guests must have a valid theme park admission ticket and a park pass reservation for the park where your selection is located. If you are a Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, the members of your party can make their selection when reservations open at 7:00 AM sharp. If you are an offsite Guest, you can book your return time when the park opens for the day, if there is remaining eligibility. You also do not have to purchase Genie+ to book the Individual Lightning Lane option. 

    Disney Genie+ will allow you to book Lightning Lane experiences for each person in your party for the cost of $15 per person, per day (rate subject to change). All Guests with a valid admission ticket and park pass reservation can begin making their selections at 7:00 AM sharp. You can purchase the Genie+ add-on after midnight of the day you want to use it. All Guests can begin to book their first experience at 7:00 AM. You can make your next selection 2 hours after the regular park opening and then every 120 minutes after you booked your last selection or redeemed the current selection, whichever is first. Refer to the app to tell you when your next experience is available to book. You can continue to book experiences until the park closes. I hope this helps with your planning. 

    See ya real soon,
