    When using the Genie + and/or the lightning lanes - do you get to pick from available times? I am coming with a group and they picked Disney on the first day (arrive after 11) and California Adventure for the 2nd two. Need to see RIse of the Resistance

    Hello there, Kristin! We are so glad you've come to planDisney with your planning question!

    I am excited that your visit is fast approaching and that you are thinking about Disney Genie+. I always recommend this add-on experience, especially if you have limited time in the parks. Unfortunately, for both Disney Genie+ Lightning Lanes and Individual Lightning Lanes you cannot pick the return time of your choice. In the Disneyland app, you will see the Tip Board which will show you the current return time available for each Lightning or Individual Lightning Lane. This will be important to notice before you make each selection so you can plan your day accordingly. If the return time doesn't work with your schedule, just keep checking back until the time available works for you.

    If you do not arrive until midday on your Disneyland day and the Individual Lightning Lanes for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance are already booked, don't panic! You do have the standby lane as an option. My tip is if the standby lane is your only hope, head there during one of the nighttime spectaculars or towards the very end of the night. The wait time is usually the best then. Don't forget to grab a Ronto Wrap and figure out if you are team blue or green milk!

    Kristin, I hope you are successful in your mission to experience Rise of the Resistance. Don't forget a portable charger and cord for your phone as all your Lightning Lane selections can drain your battery. May the force be with you!
