    Sarah from FL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I have reservation & tickets March 31st for Animal Kingdom. Park opens at 8am. I am not staying at a hotel. Do I have to be in the park to purchase Lightning Lane for Avatar Flight of Passage at 8am, or can I be outside the park & purchase it?

    Hakuna Matata, Sarah and thanks for bringing your question to planDisney where we hope to help guests stay problem-free! (Like Pumba, it's our philosophy!)

    Sarah, I'm excited to hear that you'll be at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park in just a few days. While there are so many reasons to love this park, you've already mentioned my family's number one priority when we visit: Avatar Flight of Passage! I love how this attraction is a peaceful representation of Pandora but an adventurous thrill ride at the same time! 

    Now, Sarah, I'm glad to see that you've been checking park hours because the purchase of Individual Lightning Lanes will be available at that time. I'm also happy to report that you do not need to be in the park to make that selection. My best advice is to have your My Disney Experience Mobile App open at 7:55 AM and ready to click purchase when the clock turns to 8:00 AM. You can find Individual Lightning Lanes on the home screen when you scroll down and click, "Learn More" or you can click on the magnifying glass icon on the bottom and search: Avatar Flight of Passage. From there, you'll see an option to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane when available. 

    Sarah, I'll be wishing on a star that you have a fabulous day exploring Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park and flying on the back of a banshee. If you have any additional questions, please come on back to planDisney where we're happy to find answers to "everything the light touches" in the kingdom!
