    Hi, recently booked our first trip to Disney staying in AoA family suite. My little boy loves Aladdin.. fav Disney character is the Genie. He keeps saying he can’t wait to meet him.. is there anywhere in the park to see Genie or just other characters?

    Hi Charlotte, 

    Thanks for visiting this magic lamp I like to call planDisney! I’ve got two boys at home who also love Aladdin. If we’re planning a movie night with Disney+, one of them will always ask for Aladdin, whether it is the animated or live-action version. To quote the Genie, “why don’t you just ruminate, whilst I illuminate the possibilities!”

    Currently, Genie is still enjoying his freedom from the lamp and is not meeting guests in the theme parks. You can however, meet his friends Aladdin and Jasmine in Adventureland. I’m sure they’d love to give your little boy an update on how Genie is doing! To check when Aladdin and Jasmine are meeting guests, in the My Disney Experience app click on the location indicator pin at the bottom of the screen. When you see the map, click on “Wait Times” at the top of the page and select “Characters” from the drop-down menu. You can then view a list of the characters available to meet throughout the theme parks, and their scheduled appearances.  Afterwards, you can go for a ride on The Magic Carpets of Aladdin for the chance to see Magic Kingdom Park from a “new fantastic point of view!”  

    Genie has offered his services to those visiting Disney Parks, through the Disney Genie Service in the My Disney Experience app. When you’re in the mobile app, click on the three horizontal bars in the bottom right of the app and select the “My Disney Genie Day” tile. Here, Genie will help plan your day when you share which park you are in and which experiences are most important to you, like characters, attractions, or entertainment. Genie then taps into his phenomenal cosmic power to help guide you through the theme park with a focus on your picks. 

    If you choose to purchase the Disney Genie+ Service, you can make Lightning Lane selections to minimize wait times for most attractions in the theme parks. For some of the more popular rides like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, you can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane through My Disney Experience. 

    I hope my answer has shown you don’t need three wishes to have a fantastic time at Walt Disney World Resort, Charlotte! If you have any more questions, I’ll be here for you at planDisney!

    You ain’t never had a friend like me,
