    Is it true Disney now has a pay per rider option? This would be great since all of my family doesn’t get on rides while there. They just come for the food and memories but no rollercoasters.

    Hi Valincia,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for bringing us your great question!

    While it is true that there is now an option to pay for access to individual experiences, that is only to be able to hop to the front of the line with Lightning Lane access. All Guests, regardless of which experiences they choose to enjoy during their visit, must have both a valid theme park ticket and a Disney Park Pass reservation for the day to be able to enter a theme park. You're exactly right - there are all kinds of magic and fun to enjoy, even if thrilling attractions aren't your thing. From mild attractions the entire family can enjoy together to shows and entertainment to nighttime spectaculars to scrumptious bites and beverages to photo opportunities to shopping to simply appreciating all of the attention to detail, there's something for everyone!

    If you are interested in purchasing access to the Lightning Lanes so that you can maximize your time in the parks, I'd encourage you to look into Disney Genie+ and the Individual Lightning Lane options. They're fantastic services for those Guests who want to be able to soak up as much magic and fun as possible. Of course, all Guests also can take advantage of Disney Genie, a complimentary service that will help you plan the perfect itinerary and decide when to enjoy each of your must-do experiences with the least amount of waiting.

    Thanks again for visiting planDisney, Valincia. I hope this is helpful, and I'm sending pixie dust that you and your family have a truly magical vacation together and make memories to cherish for years to come!
