    I have a question regarding individual lightning lanes. We will be staying at an on site hotel. Can I book both Tron and Seven Dwarfs individual lightning lanes at 7am for my group? I have seen conflicting information online. Thank you!

    Hello Marlise!

    Welcome to planDisney. I'm happy to help answer all your park itinerary planning questions.

    Disney Genie+ Service and Individual Lightning Lanes are my go-to tools to maximize the magic on jam-packed visits to Walt Disney World Resort. I visited with a friend in January and we purchased both to help us tackle the 4 parks in 1 day challenge. You don't need to purchase Genie+ in order to purchase Individual Lightning Lane entries, but let me share our process on the morning of our visit.

    Our alarms sounded around 6:45 a.m. and I purchased Genie+ through the My Disney Experience Mobile App for both of us. We watched the clock countdown to that magical 7:00 a.m. moment and I purchased a nighttime Individual Lightning Lane for TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise while she secured our first Genie+ selection for the day. Immediately after purchasing TRON Lightcycle / Run, I went back in to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT. By 7:02 a.m. we had an exciting day stacked with even more fun in store later in the day!

    Since you mentioned being an eligible Disney Resorts Collection hotel guest, you should have no issue purchasing Individual Lightning Lanes at 7:00 a.m. on the morning of your visit. However, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, be sure the members of your travel party are linked on your Family & Friends list before attempting any purchases or scheduling. Second, you will only be able to purchase two total Individual Lightning Lanes per day, so be sure to plan accordingly. Third, you'll want to complete your purchases as early as possible as arrival windows can and do sell out most days. Finally, you'll need to have Park Hopper Option tickets to purchase Individual Lightning Lanes across multiple parks. This won't be an issue since Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and TRON Lightcycle / Run are both located in Magic Kingdom Park, but just something to keep in mind for future visits.

    As an Annual Passholder I still needed to have a theme park reservation during this particular visit. I planned my Individual Lightning Lane entry times for later in the afternoon, even though I had Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park reserved as my starting park that day. Be sure to allow plenty of time to travel between the parks if you plan to ride attractions outside of your starting park. Individual Lightning Lanes are non-refundable so you won't want to miss your 1-hour arrival window.

    I hope you'll be able to experience tons of magic and excitement on your next visit. If you need any additional guidance or itinerary recommendations please don't hesitate to come back and let us know. We're always happy to help!

    Magic and memories,
