    I have upcoming trip, with park hopper, and staying at the Contemporary. Can I purchase an ILL reservation at 7am for my first park and the park I am hopping to after 2pm? Example, Can I buy an ILL for Rise of the Resistance and Flight of Passage at 7am?

    Hi Mark, welcome to planDisney!

    You get an A+ in Disney planning. By staying at Disney's Contemporary Resort, you are eligible for some magical perks, including early theme park entry, extended evening theme park hours, and the ability to purchase Individual Lightning Lanes at 7:00 a.m. By purchasing a ticket with the Park Hopper Option, you have the flexibility to experience the magic of multiple theme parks each day. You must be related to Tinker Bell because the pixie dust is definitely flowing.

    Individual Lightning Lanes are a great way to experience the most popular attractions at the four theme parks with less wait time. Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can purchase up to two Individual Lightning Lanes beginning at 7:00 a.m. each day. Honing in on your specific question, Mark, your Park Hopper ticket allows you to purchase Individual Lightning Lanes for attractions at any theme park. Here's what that could look like on a park day:

    Let's say you have a theme park reservation for Disney's Hollywood Studios one day. At 7:00 a.m., you can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Rise of the Resistance via the Tip Board of your My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines at the bottom right of the home page --> Tip Board --> Scroll to attraction). Once that transaction is complete, you can immediately purchase a second Individual Lightning Lane for Avatar Flight of Passage. At the top of your Tip Board, be sure to click "Change Park" and select "Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park." Since park hopping hours begin at 2:00 p.m., you can only select an arrival window for 2:00 p.m. or later. I recommend booking Avatar Flight of Passage for 2:30 p.m. or later so you have plenty of time to walk from the front of the park to Pandora - The World of Avatar. 

    I hope this information sprinkles a little more pixie dust on your Disney days, Mark. You're a star student and I hope to see you at planDisney again soon!

    Choose magic,
