Let’s talk Disneyland Individual Lightning Lanes. Do you know which rides are pay-to-play?

These are the rides formerly known as Individual Attraction Selections. With the debut of Genie+ at Disneyland, guests can skip the lines at many popular rides … for a price.

So what’s the deal with Individual Lighting Lanes and how will they affect the way you navigate a typical park day? Keep reading for the full list of Disneyland Individual Lightning Lanes. 

What’s the Difference Between Genie+ Lightning Lanes and Individual Lightning Lanes?

Disney Genie+ at Disneyland costs $20 per person per day. For that price, you can skip the long lines at 12 Lightning Lane attractions at Disneyland Park and seven Lightning Lane attractions at Disney’s California Adventure. 

With Genie+ in your pocket, you can save a spot for one attraction at a time for the whole day. If unused, you can book a second Lightning Lane two hours after booking your previous attraction.

So what’s on that Lightning Lane list anyway? Tap here for the FULL list of Genie+ attractions at Disneyland.

“But wait … there’s more!” In addition to Lightning Lanes, there’s also an Individual Lightning Lane component of Disney Genie. Confused? Allow us to explain.

With this service, you’ll pay individually to use Lightning Lanes at a specific time for up to two rides a day. Just like at Walt Disney World, the Disneyland Individual Lightning Lanes are given to the resort’s most popular rides.

Individual Lightning Lanes are not included in the price of Genie+ and must be paid for separately. On the flip side, you also don’t need to pay for Genie+ to use Disneyland Individual Lightning Lanes. 

Note: Over at the Most Magical Place On Earth, Disney World will offer Genie+ for $15 per person per day. That’ll give guests the power to cut the long lines on around 50 rides across the four parks using Lightning Lanes.

It’s important to remember that the cost of Individual Lightning Lanes will fluctuate. Factors like what ride it is, the day of your trip, and other Disney algorithm variables will all determine the price to ride an Individual Lightning Lane attraction. 

For a bit of a practical example, our editorial director tested out a couple of options while she was at Disney World. Here’s what she found when she compared two Individual Lightning Lane rides on two different days:

Rise of the Resistance Individual Lightning Lane Price

  • Tuesday, Oct. 19: $15 per person
  • Saturday, Oct. 23: $15 per person

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Individual Lightning Lane Price

  • Tuesday, Oct. 19: $10 per person
  • Saturday, Oct. 23: $12 per person

Based on this experiment, a family of four would need to pay $60 total to use the Lightning Lane at Rise of the Resistance.

While it’s true that Disneyland Genie+ costs $5 more per person, per day than at Disney World, for access to fewer Lightning Lane attractions, there are some additional Genie+ benefits as well as a Disneyland-exclusive PhotoPass perk.
