    We are staying at a Disney resort for our upcoming trip. Our friends, who are in our planning party, are staying offsite. Will we be able to make lightning lane reservations for all of us (including our friends staying offsite) at 7am? Thanks!

    Hello there, Margot!

    That’s music to my Mickey ears! I love hEARing that you and your friends are heading to The Most Magical Place on Earth so very soon. And since you’ve added the Disney Genie+ service, you’re sure to zip right through the queues of select attractions and maximize your time spent having fun!

    Margot, I’m happy to tell you that all Guests, regardless of staying onsite or not, are able to begin making their Disney Genie+ service reservations starting at 7 AM! Yippie! 

    However, the Individual Lightning Lane Entrance will work a bit differently. These are the most highly demanded attractions that are purchased individually. Guests can purchase up to two of these a day, and this option is available for Guests with or without Disney Genie+ service. Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and other select hotels can make their first Individual Lightning Lane selection starting at 7 AM on the day of their visit, while Guests staying offsite will be able to make their first Individual Lightning Lane selection when the park opens.

    And since you’re staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you will also have the opportunity to take advantage of the Early Theme Park Entry!

    I hope you and your Guests enjoy all the magic around you! Have an enchanting visit, Margot!
