Today Guests can get a special view of the Festival of Fantasy parade through Disney Genie+. Would you be willing to pay an additional fee for this prime viewing location?
Festival of Fantasy Parade
Magic Kingdom is home to Festival a Fantasy – an enchanting tribute to the tales of Fantasyland. See your favorite characters from movies like Tangled, Peter Pan, and The Little Mermaid. We also cannot forget that Mickey and Minnie Mouse appear in the parade as well as fan-favorite Maleficent (in dragon form). There are so many beloved characters to spot in this fun show.
Now Added to Genie+
Earlier this week, we shared that Guests could enjoy special viewing location of the parade. This is available through the Disney Genie+. Check out the other newly added Disney Genie+ attractions HERE.
Disney Genie+ is, this is the new system that was introduced to Walt Disney World in October 2021. Disney Genie+ is a one day fee where you can access even more attractions with shorter wait times for $15.98 (including tax) per day per Guest.
There is no limit to how many Guests may purchase Disney Genie+ in a certain day, but certain attractions can be unavailable throughout the day due to growing crowds. That means that only a select number of Guests can secure a spot for this special viewing location for the Festival of Fantasy parade. Also this will limit the availability to secure a Lightening Lane for another attraction.

Disney Genie+ Viewing Location
Guests may be curious as to where this special viewing location will be for the Festival of Fantasy parade. Is the paid Genie+ location truly worth it? It appears that this large section behind the Partner statue will be reserved for those Guests with the Disney Genie+.
Guests selecting this experience received the following information, “If you have a Disney Genie+ service and are redeeming Lighting Lane entry for this experience, please see a parade-viewing Cast Member at the courtyard in front of Cinderella Castle during your arrival window.”
“The Lighting Lane entrance will be directly behind the Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse Partners Statue.” Arrival windows for Guests are 30 minutes prior to the start of each parade.
