    What time can I purchase individual lighting lanes staying off property

    Hi April!

    Thanks for bringing your question about Lightning Lanes to us here at planDisney!  The introduction of Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ has brought a whole different means of planning to Guests! Disney Genie enables visitors to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland the chance to experience their best Disney day by customizing an itinerary based on their planned activities. Seamlessly integrated into the My Disney Experience App, Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ work with your dining reservations and park reservations to enable your party to maximize their fun!

    One fantastic new offering for Guests is the ability to reserve top-tier attractions via the purchase of Individual Lightning Lanes. Individual Lightning Lanes are available for purchase for up to two (2) attractions per day. Keep in mind that only a select number of attractions are eligible for Lightning Lane access. These attractions are:
    Magic Kingdom:
    --Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Space Mountain
    --Frozen Forever After and Remy's Ratatouille Adventure
    Hollywood Studios:
    --Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway and Star Wars:  Rise of The Resistance
    Animal Kingdom:
    --Avatar Flight of Passage and Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
    Lightning Lanes access is available to purchase for Guests staying on property at 7:00 am. For Guests who are visiting and are staying off property, Guests can make their first purchase when the parks open. Pricing for Individual Lightning Lanes varies depending on availability so be sure to check the My Disney Experience App for current prices. 

    My Disney Experience Planning Tip: Make sure that you have a Disney Parks Pass Reservation for the park in which you plan to utilize your initial Individual Lightning Lane purchase.  Be sure to check Park reservation availability at Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
