Three Walt Disney World attractions are temporarily moving off of the Individual Lightning Lane system. Space Mountain, Frozen Ever After and Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will shift back to Genie+ Lighting Lane availability beginning February 25, 2022 through August 7, 2022.
The three attractions will be bookable for Genie+ guests without an additional fee.
NEW: Effective Feb. 25 – Aug. 7 at WDW, Frozen Ever After, Space Mountain, and Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway will move to Genie+ Lightning Lane and no longer be offered as Individual LL.

Disney is pre-emptively making this change ahead of a busy Spring and Summer travel seasons. Recently, massive crowds have swamped the Genie+ system, irritating paying guests who felt the service was coming up short. Moving these three popular attractions back into the mix should help expand the Genie+ offerings, and provide more value in Genie+.
Expedition Everest was not mentioned in the update as it is under refurbishment until the end of April. It’s possible it may also move away from the Individual Lightning Lane, but we won’t know until its reopening approaches.
This leaves Flight of Passage, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train as the only Individual Lightning Lane attractions.
