    When can shades of green quests make attraction reservations?

    Hi Christina! Welcome to planDisney!

    A family vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth is always a great decision and having the ability to stay at such a picture-perfect Resort in the middle of the magic makes it even better.  The rich history of Shades of Green is fascinating, from its beginnings as a part of Walt Disney World Resort as the Golf Resort, to The Disney Inn, to now being an Armed Forces Recreation Center.  It is in a perfect location to admire the lush landscapes around you and the Theme Parks close by! 

    Staying at Shades of Green comes with so many benefits to you, your friends, and your family members! Not only do Guests of this Resort receive many of the same benefits as Disney Resorts Collection hotel Guests, such as Early Morning Theme Park Entry, BUT they also receive some of the same benefits as Disney Deluxe Resort Guests like Extended Evening Theme Park Hours! With this extra time, you and your party will be able to stay out late at certain Theme Parks on certain nights and really make the most of your vacation time.

    When using the new Disney Genie+ Service to help you and your party "skip" most of the lines and waiting, you're able to start booking your first "Lightning Lane" attractions at 7 a.m. each day of your Park visit! All Guests, regardless of whether they are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel or not, are welcome to make their first selection at this time.  After this, you'll be able to choose another Lightning Lane attraction either two hours after the Theme Park's opening time or after you scan into your first Lightning Lane attraction.

    If you decide to purchase Individual Lightning Lanes, which tend to be reserved for the most popular attractions in each Park, such as Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, here is where you'll see a time difference.  Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, and Shades of Green are eligible to make their first Individual Lightning Lane purchases at 7 a.m. the day of their visit while all other Guests need to wait until the official Park opening time.  This puts you in a great place to grab those Individual Lightning Lanes right away and ride some of those brand-new, incredible attractions!

    Have an amazing trip, Christina!

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
