Individual Lightning Lane allows Guests to skip the line of headliner attractions at Walt Disney World. This morning the Individual Lightning Lane was unavailable for all Guests. Find out more about this delay below.
Individual Lightning Lane
The Disney Genie+ is a one day paid add-on where you can access even more attractions with shorter waits. We have now confirmed that access for Genie+ is now $15.98 (including tax) per day per Guest. See which attractions are included in this Lightning Lane access HERE.
There is no limit to how many Guests may purchase Disney Genie+ in a certain day, but certain attractions can be unavailable throughout the day due to growing crowds. Check out the frustrations with the Disney Genie+ HERE.
This is not to be confused with the Individual Lightning Lane Selections. This is a paid add-on priced per person per attraction. You can select up to two headliners per day to ride using this option.
Despite Disney not holding back Individual Selections even when they said they would, they have since changed their policy. If a ride “sells out” before park opening, offsite Guests will have to use the standby line. This morning Guests hoping to book an Individual Lightning Lane were met with quite the disappointment.
Guests that were hoping to book an Individual Lightning Lane for a select attraction this morning received a startling notification. On the My Disney Experience screen a notification pops up, “At this time purchases for Individual Lightning Lanes are unavailable.”
This is quite disappointing particularly for Resort Guests. For on-site guests, they can begin booking their Individual Lightning Lane attractions at 7am. Disney advertises this as an ON-SITE PERK.
On the My Disney Experience screen a notification pops up, “At this time purchases for Individual Lightning Lanes are unavailable.”
In the Magic Kingdom, both Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Space Mountain offer the Individual Lightning Lane. On the My Disney Experience app, Guests are usually given the option to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane or they are given the standby waiting time.
Neither attraction offered the option to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane. This is also seen throughout Walt Disney World. When looking at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Flight of Passage also did not have an option to purchase the Individual Lightning Lane.
This was due to systems being down. At the time of this writing Individual Lightning Lanes are again available for purchase. This was quite a disappointment to Guests looking to book these at 7:00 am.
