    Suhanya from ON Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    My trip starts on July 16, for July 24 will I be able to purchase the new lighting lane ahead of is it going live that day and we are not able to purchase ahead for tbe new switch over? Example July 17 is 6 days prior to our hotel stay can we book then?

    Why hello again Suhanya, it's great to see you again here at planDisney!

    When the news broke this week about the upcoming changes to Lightning Lane passes at Walt Disney World Resort, I've continued to ask questions and keep an eye on the latest updates as they are released prior to the announced launch date of July 24, 2024. 

    Currently at the time of writing, the information provided from Cast Members is that guests whose Disney Resort Hotel stays currently coincide with this date will still unfortunately have to wait until July 24 in order to purchase Lightning Lane Multi Pass or Lightning Lane Single Pass. Up until that date, Disney Genie+ Service should continue to be available for the first chunk of your Walt Disney World Resort stay.

    As we've seen with this updated offering, this could be subject to change without prior notice and hopefully fellow Canadians can rest assured that they "may continue to use the My Disney Experience app after the launch of pre-arrival purchasing and planning for Lightning Lane passes" according to the messaging released by official Disney sources. I'll continue to provide what information and updates I can for Canadians leading up to the launch date and observe whether fellow Canucks will have been successful in the early days of these offerings!

    In the meantime, I highly recommend that you stay tuned to our planDisney content on the Disney Parks Blog and stay cool as you visit from Ontario during a time where the summer heat really descends upon Orlando! We look forward to seeing you here again soon Suhanya, and don't hesitate to come back again for any other answers or advice ahead of your trip!

    Wishing you all the best on your quest to acquire Lightning Lane passes when they officially launch!
