Should You Purchase Disney World’s Lightning Lane at Disney World?

If you have ever been to Disney World at the most crowded times of the year, you know how bad the lines can be.

Lightning Lane will certainly make it easier for you to ride the more popular Disney World Rides.

This doesn’t mean that you won’t have any lines, it just means that by having Lightning Lane, you will have LESS of a line than you would without it.

It is like waiting 30 minutes instead of 2-3 hours for the most popular rides.

So overall, yes, I would suggest you consider Lighting Lane if you are traveling during peak season.
