Disney has made another change to the Genie+ Lightning Lane lineup. This time, they took an option away! What do you think of this change?
Disney has introduced Genie+, which allows users to access Lightning Lanes. For $15 per person, per day, Guests will get a chance to choose attractions to use Lightning Lanes, which is essentially a shorter line and less of a wait.
You can make one selection at a time all throughout the day. 40+ attractions are included in Genie+ at Walt Disney World and 15+ attractions are available at Disneyland. Not long ago, Disney began adding select character meet and greets to the the Genie+ service. Guests were thrilled to have the chance to meet Mickey Mouse and other favorite characters using Lightning Lane.
As Spring break crowds began pouring in, parade viewing spots and even more character meet and greets were added to Genie+’s lineup.
This new addition included Meet Disney Stars at Red Carpet Dreams in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where Guests can meet with Mickey Mouse in his sorcerer outfit, and Minnie Mouse in her pink ballgown.
One less Lightning Lane option

Beginning Friday, May 13, 2022, Meet Disney Stars at Red Carpet Dreams at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will no longer offer a Genie+ Lightning Lane option. If Guests wish to meet Sorcerer Mickey or Minnie in her ball gown, they will have to use the standby line.
