    My 7 year old is excited to ride new Ratatouille ride! Am I able to book an Individual Lightning Lane pass for the ride for later in the day without being in the park or checked into my (Disney) hotel? I would like to book the morning day we are traveling.

    Bonjour, Chad! Welcome to planDisney.

    Please give your 7-year-old a high five from me! I'm also very excited to experience Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and can't wait for my next visit to Walt Disney World Resort so I can race through Chef Gusteau's kitchen with everyone's favorite rat! When my family visited EPCOT earlier this year, we had a chance to explore the area of the France pavilion where the attraction is located, and it was so charming.

    I'm happy to confirm that, as a Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you will be able to purchase Individual Lightning Lane reservations beginning at 7:00 a.m. on your arrival day, whether you've arrived at Walt Disney World or not. I recommend logging in the night before to make sure you have the most up-to-date version of the My Disney Experience mobile app running, and taking a quick tour of the app so you know where to tap to access Disney Genie Service. (I really love the "summon Disney Genie" button - it makes me sing "all you gotta do is tap like so!") You'll be able to purchase Individual Lightning Lane entrance within the Disney Genie Service Tip Board or the My Day Itinerary. 

    While you're in the France pavilion, I highly recommend a stop at L'Artisan des Glaces ice cream shop. My very favorite treat is the macaron ice cream sandwich with house-made ice cream. On my recent visit, the Chef's special was a raspberry macaron with coconut ice cream and it was pure magic! 

    Thank you for stopping by with your question, Chad! We're here to help if you have any further questions as you count down the days. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
