    I am staying onsite at the end of August travelling from the Uk, will I be able to purchase and prebook the lightening lane multiple experiences 7 days in advance from the Uk?

    Welcome to planDisney, Michelle! You are going to have a great visit in August! I’m glad you are aware of the changes coming to Lightning Lanes at the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Beginning on July 24, 2024, Guests residing in the United States and Canada can purchase Lightning Lane Single Pass (for a single attraction) or Lightning Lane Multi Pass (for multiple attractions) prior to arriving for their Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel or other select resorts can make their Lightning Lane purchases and selections seven days before their vacation arrival date. All other Guests can make their Lightning Lane purchases and selections three days before their vacation arrival. 

    Guests residing outside of the United States and Canada can make their Lightning Lane purchases and selections once they arrive in the United States for their Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Purchasing Lightning Lane access will give you a shorter wait for some of your favorite Walt Disney World Resort attractions! Guests can purchase Lightning Lanes through their My Disney Experience app.

    Michelle, you’ve chosen a great time to visit! The end of August is traditionally less crowded due to many schools in the United States reopening for students. With fewer people there are usually shorter waits for rides and attractions!

    Dreams do come true!
