    If both of us have MDE on our phones, can we both book different Lightning Lanes at 7am? Or will that cancel one or both of us because we’re part of the same party? Genie+ is still confusing me a little. Thanks for the help!

    Welcome to planDisney, Lindsay!

    Planning a trip to Walt Disney World can leave your head spinning, right? From Disney Genie+ to theme park reservations, it can be confusing. In the words of Alice, “It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.”

    We get it! This is why planDisney exists. We're here to help fellow Guests with their questions and to share our collective experience and knowledge. So you've come to the right place. 

    If both of you have the My Disney Experience Mobile App you can both try booking Lightning Lanes at the same time. Assuming you're both on each other's Family & Friends list, you can make reservations for each other. However, you are only allowed to book one Lightning Lane reservation per person. You can't each hold multiple Lightning Lane reservations. For example, you couldn't book a Lightning Lane for Splash Mountain while the other person books you a Lightning Lane for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Once you enjoy your Lightning Lane attraction, or two hours after making your selection (whatever comes sooner), you can then make another Lightning Lane selection. Does that make sense? 

    It's really easy to make a Lightning Lane selection too. Simply open up the app, tap on "Tip Board" and you'll see a list of attractions. You'll then be able to see a list of return times for any available Lightning Lanes. Tap "Book Experience," select the members of your party that you wish to book the attraction for, and then click "Confirm Party." Hope that helps! You've got this!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Lindsay! Feel free to reach out again if you have any further questions. 

    See ya real soon!
