DIS & Dreams Event - Disneyland Resort in California
August 4 - 5, 2023

Select Character Sightings Move to Genie+ Starting January 26th

Walt Disney World has updated their website to reflect a few changes, and if meeting a character during your next Disney trip is a must-do, you’ll want to take note of the changes.

Beginning January 26th, select Walt Disney World character sightings will be added to Genie+ as a Lightning Lane option. The included character experiences are: Cinderella and a visiting princess at Magic Kingdom‘s Princess Fairytale Hall, Tiana and a visiting princess at Princess Fairytale Hall (this will be separate from Cinderella, so guests will need to book two separate Lightning Lanes), Mickey Mouse at Magic Kingdom’s Town Square Theatre, and Olaf at Celebrity Spotlight at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Keep in mind that a standby line will still be available for these character experiences in addition to the Lightning Lane.

Deni loves all things Disney, and, in 2013, moved to the Magic from Maryland. Walt Disney World is her happy place, and she loves getting to share it with others. Deni and her husband of almost 26 years have 2 grown children. Her favorite WDW snack? A Mickey Bar, of course. Is there any other?!
