    Staying at a Disney Springs hotel and it's listed for Early Theme Park Entry. It's not clear if I can make Genie+ selections or buy Individual Lightning Lane times at 7am - those eligible hotels are not itemized so it's not clear.


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    You have to love the Early Theme Park Entry! There is nothing better than getting a jump on your day. You are correct that there is a list of eligible Disney Springs area resorts that enjoy the Early Theme Park Entry, and it sounds as if you have confirmed that your vacation 'home-away-from-home' is one of those lucky venues.

    However the list of eligible resorts that currently can book Individual Lightning Lane reservations at 7 am is not the same. At the time of this answer it is available only to Disney Resort Hotel guests, guests of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels, as well as guests at Shades of Green. Now if that were to expand to include your resort as well, which would not surprise me, you would find that updated on the Lighting Lane page. But again, for now it is a no. 

    One of the great perks to staying at a Disney Springs area resort is the easy access to Disney resorts for some of their entertaining dining options. Remember that you can hop onto a bus to any Disney resort from right there at Disney Springs. A personal favorite is Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  

    Have a Magical Vacation!
