    Why it shows not elegible when try to purchase lighting lane?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jose! I'm so glad to answer your question today about Lightning Lanes, one of my favorite ways to save time when I'm at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Jose, if you are getting an error when you're attempting to purchase a Lightning Lane, I suspect you might be trying a bit too early. Individual Lightning Lanes for select attractions like Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind go on sale for guests of Disney Resorts Collection Hotels at 7:00 AM. If you are staying off-site, you are eligible to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane beginning when the Theme Park you're visiting opens for the day. For example, Magic Kingdom Park opened to all guests at 9:00 AM this morning, so that's when you would be able to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane if you're not staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel.

    It looks like you're currently on vacation at Walt Disney World Resort, so if you are attempting to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane at the correct time and still having difficulty, I recommend paying a quick visit to a Guest Relations location, and a friendly Disney Cast Member will help you figure out what's going on!

    Have a magical day, Jose!
