    Hi, we are staying at Old Key's Resort during March and April. We have passes for the full family. How do we best get to see Star Wars, Tron and Avatar without purchasing Lightening passes? Do we need to pre book or run to the queues?!

    Welcome to planDisney, Danny! It sounds like you’ve started planning by identifying your “must do” attractions while visiting the Disney Parks! You’ve selected some of the best (and most thrilling) attractions to experience during your visit! I’ll break down your answer, park by park, to explain how you can enjoy each attraction without any additional purchases.

    Let’s start at Disney’s Hollywood Studios where you mentioned wanting to experience the out-of-this-world adventures at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! Two attractions are included in this land – Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance! Both attractions are available for all Guests via a traditional standby line where you would arrive at the attraction and wait in line with other Guests. Both attractions are covered by your Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park ticket!

    You’ll find another of your top attractions at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park! Avatar Flight of Passage is our top ride to experience as a family! This ride is available for all Guests through a traditional standby line. Your breathtaking ride on the back of a banshee is covered through your theme park ticket for Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

    Finally, at Magic Kingdom Park, Guests must experience TRON Lightcycle / Run via a virtual queue. Guests have two opportunities to access the virtual queue – 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Guests use their My Disney Experience app to access the virtual queue. Upon opening the app, scroll to the “My Visit” section. You should see “Virtual Queue.” Tap that heading and follow the prompts to join the virtual queue. You don’t have to be inside Magic Kingdom Park to join the 7:00 AM virtual queue. However, you must have been admitted into Magic Kingdom Park to join the 1:00 PM virtual queue. Securing a virtual queue reservation is not guaranteed, so be sure to be on the app at 6:59:59 AM and 12:59:59 PM for your best chance to get a spot in the virtual queue.

    You asked to avoid additional purchases, but in the interest of full disclosure, there are additional ways to experience your top attractions. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, TRON Lightcycle / Run, and Avatar Flight of Passage are all available by purchasing an individual Lightning Lane. Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run is available through a Disney Genie+ purchase.

    Danny, I hope you get to experience all these thrilling attractions!

    Dreams do come true!
