    Staying at D resort. 1st park is AK. At 7:00 am, can my daughter (under my login in MDE) make reservations for Slinky dog after 2:00 pm while I make ILL for Guardians of the Galaxy? How do you refresh MyDisExp if you need slinky dog at a later time?

    Hey there, Anita, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the panel with your question! It’s great to see that you and your daughter will soon set out on a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation! I’m excited to help you navigate your Lightning Lane planning, so let’s get to your answer. 

    Anita, all Guests who have purchased Disney’s Genie+ Service can make their first Genie+ Lightning Lane Reservation at 7:00 am EST on the morning of their Theme Park visit. Guests can make Lightning Lane Reservations for attractions in their second or third (or fourth!) planned Theme Park. However, due to the current Park Hopping restrictions, the Lightning Lane Reservation must be after 2:00 pm EST when Park Hopping privileges begin. The great news is that the My Disney Experience mobile app will automatically push your reservation to 2:00 pm EST or later as you book your reservation (since your park reservation for the day is not at Hollywood Studios.) The app will automatically recognize that you are reserving an attraction in a different Theme Park then you have reserved and do all of the hard work for you! Slinky Dog Dash reservations tend to go quickly, so I don’t think you’d have to refresh to get a time that you like. But if you do, simply pull down on the screen, and it will refresh. 

    Guests staying in a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel can also make their first Individual Lightning Lane purchase at 7:00 am EST on the morning of their Theme Park visit. Since your park reservation is for Animal Kingdom, your Individual Lightning Lane for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind must be after 2:00 pm EST. So the app should automatically push your reservation to an available time past this window. You can also keep refreshing the screen to try and get a better attraction return window if you do not like the original time you received. Slinky Dog Dash and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind are both very popular attractions, so it’s hard for me to tell you the best strategy to take to secure both reservations. I will say that Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is an attraction you have to experience! 

    I hope this helps, Anita! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know
