If you’re planning a trip to Walt Disney World, you may be wondering how many Lightning Lanes you can book for each day. Lightning Lanes are the new way to experience attractions without waiting in long lines, and they are a popular addition to the Disney experience. In this article, we’ll answer the question: is there a maximum number of Lightning Lanes you can book at Walt Disney World?
What Are Lightning Lanes?
First, let’s review what Lightning Lanes are. Lightning Lanes are a new feature at Walt Disney World that allows guests to skip the standby line and enjoy select attractions with little or no wait. They are similar to FastPass+ (which is no longer available) but with some key differences – mainly the fact that guests cannot reserve in advance at 30 days or 60 days and the fact that it costs between $15 per person per day up to $35+ per person per day.
How Many Lightning Lanes Can You Book?
The good news is that there is no limit to the number of Lightning Lanes you can book in a day. We’ve used 10+ Lightning Lanes in one day with no issues. However, there are some important things to keep in mind when booking your Lightning Lanes.
First, you can only book one Lightning Lane at a time. Once you use your most recently booked Lightning Lane or after two hours, you can book another one, and so on, throughout the day. This means that you won’t be able to book multiple Lightning Lanes in advance for the same time slot like the old Fastpass system. For more about when you can book Lightning Lanes head here.
Second, not all attractions offer Lightning Lanes. Currently, only select attractions offer this feature. Attractions like Astro Orbiter, the Carousel, Liberty Square Riverboat, and others are not included in Genie+. These rides only have the standby wait.
Third, some Lightning Lanes may have limited availability or may be more popular than others. For example, Lightning Lanes for newer attractions or popular rides like Slinky Dog Dash may be more difficult to book, especially during peak times. It’s a good idea to prioritize which attractions you want to experience with Lightning Lanes and to try to book them as early as possible.
Limit to Individual Lightning Lanes
While there is no limit to Lightning Lanes, there is a limit to Individual Lightning Lanes. You can book up to two Individual Lightning Lanes per day. Currently as of April 2023, Walt Disney World offers ILLs on Seven Dwarves Mine Train, TRON, Cosmic Rewind, Rise of the Resistance, and Flight of Passage. Additionally, Individual Lightning Lanes tend to run out most quickly in the morning so be sure to prioritize booking your Individual Lightning Lane before your Genie+ Lightning Lane.
In conclusion, there is no maximum number of Lightning Lanes you can book at Walt Disney World, but there are some important things to keep in mind when booking them. Be sure to check the My Disney Experience app frequently to get your booking window, prioritize which attractions you want to experience with Lightning Lanes, and be flexible with your plans. With a little bit of planning, you can make the most of this exciting new feature at Walt Disney World and enjoy your favorite attractions with little or no wait.
