We Tested Out a QUICKER Way to Meet Characters in Disney World

Disney has been bringing back more entertainment throughout the parks, including some classic shows, characters, and experiences! But a lot has happened in the past few years — mainly the introduction of the new Disney Genie service.

If you’re looking to meet one of your favorite characters without waiting in a standby line, you might want to listen up.

In case you weren’t aware, guests can book a return time to meet select Disney characters through Disney Genie+. Let’s take a look at how this process works!

You can now use the Lightning Lane at this meet and greet location!

First, hop onto the My Disney Experience app and visit the Disney Genie Service page. If you purchased Genie+ for the day, you will be able to see all the current attractions and experiences available for you to reserve. Starting now, you can reserve a time to meet Mickey, Princess Tiana, Princess Cinderella, and two visiting princesses in the Magic Kingdom. 


As you can see, Disney has signs indicating all the locations that offer Lightning Lane access.

This is in Town Square Theater on Main Street, U.S.A.

Over in Fantasyland, Princess Fairytale Hall also has similar signage.

Today you can meet Tiana and Rapunzel!

We tested the process back when it was introduced a few months ago. Let’s go meet Mickey!

To the Lightning Lane!

We arrived shortly after our Genie+ return time and make it through the queue in no time! Mickey is currently meeting guests in his 50th Anniversary getup!

Social distancing

Mickey was happy to see us! We grabbed a selfie, took some pictures, and headed out!

Looking good, Mickey!

The process is pretty much the same over at Princess Fairytale Hall. Keep in mind that you can also meet Olaf over in Disney’s Hollywood Studios with Genie+. We’re always on the hunt for the latest Disney news, so stay tuned!
