    My question is can my husband book an ILL for Tron, while I book an ILL for snow white? He will have a registered account, but I plan on buying us all the genie plus through my account. I shared planning w/him

    Hi Rachel, welcome to planDisney!

    Husbands make great Walt Disney World Resort sidekicks, don't they? I make most of the advance dining reservations for my family and my husband researches where to find the best snacks like the Cheeseburger Spring Rolls at the Adventureland Spring Roll cart. I purchase Disney Genie+ service for my family and my husband helps book Genie+ Lighting Lane attractions throughout our park days. I also trained him to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for TRON Lightcycle / Run earlier this month, which he did at 7:00 a.m. while I was busy joining the virtual queue. This divide-and-conquer strategy leads us to the magical topic at hand.

    Disney Genie+ service and Individual Lightning Lanes are great ways to maximize the magic on your park days. You can purchase Disney Genie+ service after midnight each park day for anyone on your Family & Friends List with valid admission and a theme park reservation. I recommend purchasing by 6:45 a.m. so you can book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m.  Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can book up to two Individual Lightning Lanes each day beginning at 7:00 a.m. All other Guests can purchase at park opening. 

    With overlapping opportunities, Rachel, a divide-and-conquer strategy is recommended and encouraged. My and my panelist pals' experience confirms that you should have no trouble executing your plan to purchase Individual Lightning Lanes for TRON Lightcycle / Run and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train as described. You included important details like the fact that your husband would be logged into his own My Disney Experience account and that you're connected as Family & Friends.

    You can choose from available arrival windows when purchasing an Individual Lighting Lane. At Magic Kingdom Park, evening arrival windows for TRON Lightcycle / Run typically fill up first whereas morning arrival windows for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train are most popular. I recommend being in the same physical space as your husband when you purchase your Individual Lightning Lanes so you can effectively communicate if a shift in pre-planned arrival windows is required. Another tip is to save a payment method to your My Disney Experience accounts, which will expedite the Individual Lightning Lane checkout process.

    If you're adding an attempt to join the 7:00 a.m. virtual queue for TRON Lightcycle / Run and securing your first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction to your park day to-do list, the virtual queue should be your top priority because it fills up within seconds. You can and should confirm your virtual queue party in the My Disney Experience mobile app up to one hour in advance (three small lines at the bottom right of the home page --> Virtual Queues). In my experience, the Genie+ Lighting Lane attractions that run out of next available arrival windows the quickest are Peter Pan's Flight and Jungle Cruise, so I'd book one of those attractions right at 7:00 a.m. if it's a must-do for your family. Booking a Genie+ Lighting Lane arrival window takes less than a minute and can easily be done before making your Individual Lightning Lane purchase. 

    Let's talk park day strategy again soon!
