Select Attractions removed from Disney World’s Genie+

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

Heads up if you are planning to go to Walt Disney World soon. Some meet and greets have been removed from Disney Genie+.

Genie+ is a paid feature that offers more convenience and flexibility. Here is the shortened version: for $15 per person per day at Disney World and $20 per person per day at Disneyland (sometimes a discount is available), choose the next available time to arrive at a variety of attractions and experiences using the Lightning Lane entrance.

You can choose to use the standby line instead of purchasing Genie+. In doing so, Disney is not forcing you to pay for this feature. For more about Genie+, see our guide HERE.

Characters Returning

More meet and greets are returning to Walt Disney World! You can see Mirabel at the Magic Kingdom and Minnie Mouse will join Mickey Mouse in the Town Square Theater.

Over in Animal Kingdom, Dinoland characters return soon, so make sure you have those autograph books ready! It’s nice to see character meets return to Animal Kingdom.

We are also excited to see Star Wars Launch Bay reopening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 17th.

New additions removed

After hearing the news of Star Wars Launch Bay reopening, we also found out new additions would be added to Genie+. Meets with Darth Vader and Chewbacca were scheduled to begin on July 17, 2022. However, according to the Disney website today, these meets have been removed.

Lightning Lane selections for Darth Vader and Chewbacca meets have been removed from Disney’s website

Hopefully this is just another one of those Disney website glitches or it might mean that they are updating the website. We will keep you updated as we know more.

What do you think of the meet and greets being removed from Genie+? Would you use a Lightning Lane for one of these if one was available? Tell us about it in the comments below or on our Facebook page.

No, virtual queue has been put in place usually with newer ride, right now only Guardians has a Virtual queue. Mickey's Railroad and RoR will be Individual Lightening Lanes, meaning you would have to pay them a la carte.

Going in Sept. Are they doing away with LL for rise and Mickey's Railway and replacing with a virtual qeue like Guardians? I'd prefer that because it will allow me to use more LL and not need to wait 2 hours and not do anything until I check in.

Boycott Disney until Bob Paycheck is fired.

What's with Disney? They come up with a crazy system, force guests to pre-register for parks, stop allowing guests to pre-order Genie+, load up the computer system for 7 am to start picking your Genie +, and now change the rides included excluded in Genie+. If Disney can't get their act together how do they expect guests to plan? Or is that their plan to keep guests so confused and frustrated they will do anything the computer tells them too? (next they will expect guests to moo!)
