It’s never truly quiet when it comes to Disney news, is it?

Lots going on at the most magical place on Earth

There’s always something going on, even if it’s just knowing that bookings for 2023 Disney World vacations are starting soon, finding out that tickets have gone on sale for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, or learning that Fantasmic! Dining Packages Are Returning to Disneyland. But there are even BIGGER news stories this week, so let’s get to them!

Early Theme Park Entry Extended at Disney World

It seems like Early Theme Park Entry at Disney World is here to stay, or at least it’s planning on sticking around for a while longer. Disney recently announced this perk for Disney World hotel guests will remain in place throughout all of 2023.

Early Theme Park Entry allows Disney World hotel guests to enter any theme park on any day 30 minutes before the general public. However, all guests must still have a valid park ticket and park pass reservation.

Big Changes Coming To Genie+

Disney is about to change the way guests can purchase Disney Genie+. Starting on June 8th, 2022, guests will no longer be able to purchase Disney Genie+ in advance for their trip. Instead, Genie+ will only be available for purchase on the day of each visit, starting at midnight. Remember that you can buy it using the My Disney Experience app.

This means that all guests will only be able to purchase Genie+ one day at a time “subject to availability.” That could mean Disney plans on limiting how many people can purchase Genie+ on any given day.

Two Big Disney World Reopenings

It’s been nearly two years since Disney World’s reopening, but many things at the resort have not yet reopened. However, we recently received confirmation the Harmony Barber Shop in Magic Kingdom will open its doors again on July 31st, 2022. A limited number of reservations will be available starting on June 28th, although walk-ins will also be accepted based upon availability.
