WALT DISNEY WORLD NEWS UPDATES
Finding Nemo Returns on June 13
“Finding Nemo: The Big Blue…and Beyond”, the all-new version of the original Finding Nemo theater production at Animal Kingdom reopened on June 13. The new shortened 25-minute show has a whole new storyline and newly added technological features, setting it apart from the original. The stage show has been added to the Genie + lineup in the My Disney Experience app.
Adventurers Outpost Reopens June 19
Adventurers Outpost in Animal Kingdom is scheduled to reopen on June 19th and has been added to the Genie + lineup. Here you can meet Mickey & his friends in their adorable safari attire. To date, there haven’t been many meet and greets (if any) available at Animal Kingdom, so it will be nice to have this back.
Minnie Van Transportation Returning June 29
The Minnie Van transportation service is returning to Walt Disney World on June 29. This is welcomed the news and perfect to have another transportation option to get you around the Walt Disney World Resort. At times, when the buses or monorails are super crowded and wait times are long, Minnie Vans are an excellent alternative option to get you to your destination, and quickly. The Minnie Van service can be booked using the Lyft app. Be sure to download it and create an account before the start of your vacation.
Advanced Sales of Genie + No Longer Available
In case you missed it, beginning June 8, advance sales of Genie + ended and Guests’ only option is to purchase the service on a day-to-day basis. Previously, Guests could add Genie + to their vacation packages and pre-pay for the service for the length of their trip. Purchasing Genie + daily vs in advance allows the Guest (and Disney) a lot of flexibility in their planning. Purchases can be made as of midnight (12:00 am EST) on the day of your visit to the parks.
Genie + Could Sell Out
As of June 8, Genie + sales are “subject to availability“. According to the newest disclaimer in My Disney Experience, Disney includes limitations on the actual sale of the Genie + service, along with attractions and experiences. Disclaimer: “Disney Genie+ service, attractions, and experiences may vary by date, are subject to change or closure, are limited in availability and are not guaranteed, and may not be available at all on the date of visit or at the time you make a selection. Price, terms, and entitlements are subject to restrictions, and change or cancellation without notice.” Previously, while Genie + experiences and attractions could potentially “sell-out”, Genie + (the service itself) remained available for purchase throughout the day.
