A new Lightning Lane experience has been added to the Disney Genie+ service today. Will you be adding this to your park plans?
Cavalcades replaced traditional parades when the parks reopened in July 2020. While many people including myself (Maggie) love seeing the cavalcades, many people feel that the cavalcades just are not the same as the traditional parades.
For this year’s holiday season, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade can be seen. This is the first parade that has returned since the parks closed.
Guests can now see Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade during regular park hours! Beginning December 22, (that’s today) get a spot early so you can catch one of the performances at either 12:00 pm or 3:45 pm. On December 30 and 31, the second parade will take place at 3:30 pm.
The daytime performances will end on December 31 which is great for such a busy time at Disney World. The week between Christmas and New Year is historically the busiest time of the year, so this will help entertain Guests.
Seeing the parade during the day is great for guests who did not attend the Very Merriest After Hours event.
New Lightning Lane experience
Also today, a new Lightning Lane experience has been added to the Disney Genie+ service. If you want to make sure you get a great spot for the parade, we have great news!
Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade has been added as a Lightning Lane experience to Disney Genie+
A screenshot appears in My Disney Experience. It says, “please see a parade-viewing Cast Member at the courtyard in front of Cinderella Castle during your arrival window. The Lightning Lane entrance will be on the east side of the castle area.”
