What is the Lightning Lane?

Disney is renaming the FastPass queue as the Lightning Lane, according to its website. This is a quicker, faster-tracked line that bypasses much of the standby queue and directs you straight to the pre-show. At a designated time, purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane selection for Cosmic Rewind gets you fast-tracked access to the ride.

The cost of a single Lightning Lane entry for Cosmic Rewind is $14 to $17 per person plus tax, and it varies by day. Before you make your decision and complete your purchase, you’ll be shown the current price.

Who can buy an Individual Lightning Lane entry?

Individual Lightning Lane selections are available to all Walt Disney World visitors in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Seasonal Flexible Ticket.

Guests staying on Disney World property at a Walt Disney World resort hotel, the Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin, or Swan Reserve, or Shades of Green may buy Individual Lightning Lane picks beginning each day at 7 a.m., but only guests staying on property at a Walt Disney World resort hotel can purchase them until they are first made available each day at 7 a.m. All other visitors can acquire their initial Individual Lightning Lane pick in the morning when the park opens. And to be honest, if you don’t have that head start on purchasing, there could be few — if any — options available now.
