    In regards to the new lighting lane system, I read somewhere that if you want to use this new system you must be in the USA to make advanced ride selections. As a traveler from Canada and staying on property, how do I make advanced ride selections?

    Hiya, Mike! Thanks so much for visiting planDisney. It's always a treat to meet one of our neighbors from the north, and I'm here to help make your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation as magical as can be. 

    Our planDisney crew was surprised and excited to hear the recent announcement of the new Lightning Lane system that will take effect beginning July 24, 2024. As someone who loves to nail down our vacation plans in advance, this is a change I'm very excited about! The new system combines good old Fastpass+ with the current Genie+ and will allow Guests staying in a Disney Resort Hotel to begin making selections for attractions 7 days before their check-in date. 

    Mike, your vacation plans line up perfectly with the Lightning Lane launch, as your 7-day pre-arrival window starts on July 24--the same day the new system goes live! At this time, Canadian guests may continue to use the My Disney Experience app after the launch of pre-arrival purchasing and planning for Lightning Lane passes. I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any additional updates as we get closer to that date. 

    Keep in mind that the process for Virtual Queue bookings will remain the same. For some of the most popular attractions like TRON Lightcycle / Run and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, be sure to set a reminder to log on at 7:00 AM those days so you can secure a prime boarding group!

    I hope this information sets your mind at ease and makes your planning a bit easier, Mike! You're going to have a great time at The Most Magical Place on Earth--I wish you safe travels, sunshine, and all the Mickey-shaped snacks you can possibly imagine. Please stop by planDisney again anytime if we can help with any other questions!

    See Ya Real Soon!
