    Hi, I will be staying at Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista in August, does this hotel count for booking from 7am for individual LL such as Rise of the resistance rather than waiting until park opening? Also what other perks are there for staying at the hotel

    Welcome to planDisney, Jasmine!

    You must be getting very excited about your upcoming trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! Even if you're not staying directly on Disney property in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel you still have some pretty amazing benefits of staying so close to the magic!  Since the Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista is located right across the street from Disney Springs, you know you'll be at this amazing shopping, dining, and entertainment district, as well as the Theme Parks, as quick as a wink!

    You're certainly in for a treat when you stay at this Resort because Guests of this hotel are able to share some perks with Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels, such as Early Theme Park Entry.  With this benefit, you and your party are able to enter any of the four Theme Parks 30 minutes early each day!  Take advantage of this time to ride some of your favorite attractions or just enjoy walking around a semi-empty Park before the crowds roll in!

    While you are welcome to schedule your first Disney Genie+ Service Lightning Lane at 7 a.m. sharp, Guests of the Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista must wait until the official Park opening time to book their first choice for Individual Lightning Lane attractions.  Only Guests of Disney Resort hotels, Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and Walt Disney World Swan Reserve are able to make their first Individual Lightning Lane choices at 7 a.m.  Don't let it deter you though! Many Guests are still able to grab Individual Lightning Lanes for their favorite attractions later in the day, and you can always wait in the standby line if you don't happen to get one. 

    I do hope you're able to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance when you visit.  I only rode this attraction for the first time on my last trip to the Resort in December and I can.not.wait. to get back down and ride it again on my next visit.  It was absolutely amazing!

    Don't forget to come back and see us if you have any other planning questions!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
