Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade Daytime Performances Make Their Way Onto Lightning Lane for Disney Genie+ Users

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade daytime performances begin today at the Magic Kingdom and, with the new Genie+ system being widely used throughout the resort, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade comes equipped with a Lightning Lane option.

What’s Happening:

  • Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, a parade typically reserved for those who attend the Very Merriest After Hours event, makes its return to daytime hours at the Magic Kingdom in the days leading up to Christmas.

  • As reported by Brooke McDonald on Twitter, these daytime performances are offering a reserved viewing option to guests utilizing Disney Genie+.
  • The parade has two different showtimes with 12:00 P.M. and 3:45 P.M ET. The Lightning Lane return for each parade is for 15 minutes prior to the parade.

  • In the My Disney Experience app when booking a Lightning Lane time for the parade, you receive a notification within the app that reads:
    • “If you have Disney Genie+ service and are redeeming Lightning Lane entry for this experience, please see a parade-viewing Cast Member at the courtyard in front of Cinderella Castle during your arrival window. The Lightning Lane entrance will be on the east side of the castle area.”
