    From what time can I purchase a Lightening lane if I'm not on site? We are flying from New York 5th April and want to visit Hollywood Studios after arriving & checking in, would I be able to buy a Rise of Resistance reservation that morning?

    Hello there James, and welcome to planDisney!

    I am so excited to hEAR that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort soon. You picked a great time to join in the World’s Most Magical Celebration. There are so many new experiences during the 50th Anniversary Celebration. I loved sampling all the treats in the 50th Anniversary Sips and Bites Guide. This is your checklist to try all the new drinks and desserts created especially for the 18-month celebration.

    James, the Force will be with you as you make your way to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Individual Lightning Lane selections can be made in the My Disney Experience mobile app. Guests of select Disney Resorts Collection Hotels can begin making reservations at 7:00 A.M. Eastern Time (or Mickey Time). All other Guests can begin to make their selections after the park’s scheduled opening for the day.

    James, I checked the calendar, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios opens at 10:00 A.M. on April 5th. If there are any remaining Individual Lightning Lane selections available, you could reserve a spot at that time. However, Rise of the Resistance is an extremely popular attraction and the Lightning Lane spots have been known to be distributed in minutes of them being available to resort guests. You do have the option of waiting in the standby line, and since you are traveling that day, you will not be able to get in line at the park opening with a minimal wait. I would suggest that you get in line a few minutes before the park closes. I have always experienced reduced wait times on most attractions at closing time.

    Good luck with your selections and if you have any more questions please come back and visit us again at planDisney.

    See ya real soon,
