    Why is Geanie showing Mickey and Minnie’s house, Meet and Greet with the Princesses at the Royal Hall and Disney Jr dance party unavailable (seemingly starting mid December) but definitely throughout our whole trip in January?

    Hello Ashley!  Welcome to planDisney, we're so glad you're here as you plan your trip to the "Happiest Place on Earth!"  

    You can reference the hours & events calendar for entertainment and special experiences such as Mickey's House and Meet Mickey Mouse in Disneyland Park, and the Disney Junior Dance Party! in Disney California Adventure Park.  It looks like you'll be arriving in mid-January, and the calendar does not extend out to January yet.  I would keep checking back as your trip gets closer, and you should be able to see the times for those experiences during your trip on the Disneyland site as well as in the Disneyland app in the "Tip Board" as you're planning your day using the helpful Disney Genie Service.

    I love that you're starting to plan out your park days, it's such a recipe for success during your visits!  I highly recommend prioritizing your top 3 attractions or characters to meet each day, and try to cross those off your list first.  We always feel accomplished when we've been able to experience our favorite attractions first thing in the day, and then we can go about our day knowing that we won't be disappointed that we weren't able to ride certain attractions.  

    It sounds like your family loves meeting characters, and it's such a special part of any Disneyland Resort visit!  When you open up the Disneyland app, tap the location icon in the bottom navigation bar, and then you can select "Characters" from the drop down menu at the top.  It will then show you Mickey icons where characters are currently meeting, and the times they are scheduled to appear.  This is such a great tool to use and reference throughout the day if meeting characters is a priority for your family.  Nothing beats a warm hug from our favorite Disney pals!

    I hope this information is helpful for your upcoming trip, Ashley.  I am sending you and your family all of the pixie dust for a wonderful visit.  Please feel free to come back and ask me any other questions you may have, you've got a friend in me!

    Have a magical day,
