    How does rider switch work with individual lightning lanes?

    Hiya Leslie! Thanks so much for coming back to see us again at planDisney!

    Your trip to Walt Disney World Resort is coming up so very quickly now!  Have you started a countdown or pulled out a suitcase?  I feel like I always pack a little too early just because I'm so excited to go and then I have nothing to wear! Since it's January you can probably safely tuck those bathing suits right in and not worry about needing them before your trip!

    Have you been checking out Disney Genie and Genie+ Service during these final days of waiting for your magical vacation to begin?  I haven't had a chance to use it in the Parks yet, but I've been busy studying the ins and outs of the Tip Board, the perks of purchasing Genie+ and how to maximize my chances of getting Individual Lightning Lanes for all the attractions available! 

    With Individual Lightning Lanes, using Rider Switch looks pretty similar to using it in a regular standby queue.  The only difference being that all riders will have to have purchased the Individual Lightning Lane in order to ride.  For example, if you have a party of four and one person cannot or does not want to ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, but the other three do, all three must purchase an Individual Lightning Lane.  The first two members of your party will ride while the other two wait outside the attraction.  After the first two get off, the rider outside will be able to enter using their Individual Lightning Lane.  Make sure to speak with a Cast Member at the beginning of the queue, just as you would with regular Rider Switch, so that your party is able to "swap" members when the first group gets off. 

    I hope this information was helpful and that the Genie makes all your wishes come true!  Have fun riding and enjoy your magical vacation.

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
