If you are contemplating a vacation this year, and are looking for that Disney world class customer service with or without the theme parks - you have many options!
To help you decide on the best Disney destination for your family, I wanted to share some of what’s NEW in 2022!

                     One of the photo filters included with Genie+ at Walt Disney World

Both Walt Disney World and Disneyland saw the addition of Genie, Genie+ and the Lightning Lane at the end of 2021 and all will continue in 2022! Lightning Lane allows you to skip the regular stand by line and is only accessible by booking a return time via Genie+ AND/OR by purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane return time. Disney’s Genie+ is a ticket upgrade that gives you the ability to choose the next available time to arrive at a select number of attractions using the Lightning Lane entrance, as well as additional fun enhancements. Disney’s Genie is a FREE addition to both mobile apps. After answering a few questions about what you want to see and do in the park of your choice, Disney Genie “creates your best Disney day.”

Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser - Opening March 1, 2022 at Walt Disney World Resort, the new “Star Wars Hotel” is a revolutionary new experience described as “part live immersive theater, part themed environment, part culinary extravaganza, part real-life role-playing game”. Included in the cost of this experience is a 2-night stay in a well-appointed cabin or suite, meals, valet parking and entry to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for your planetary excursion to Batuu. This would be a great add-on to a Walt Disney World stay OR a vacation all in itself!
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind - This thrilling new family-friendly coaster is scheduled to open in the summer of 2022 in Walt Disney World’s Epcot and will be one of the longest, fully enclosed coasters in the world. Though currently still under construction, this ride was originally slated to open in 2021, but was delayed due to the pandemic.
The Wish will be taking its inaugural sailing in June of 2022! The newest Disney Cruise Line ship will offer all the same innovative experiences you expect from Disney - including a Frozen-themed theatrical dining experience, a kids club area that will allow your superheros to train alongside some of their favorite Marvel characters, and the Aquamouse - the first ever Disney attraction at sea! The Wish is available to book through May of 2023!
In 2022 Adventures by Disney is returning to more than two dozen destinations around the world, now on all SEVEN continents, with the addition of Antarctica and Patagonia and Galapagos Islands Expedition Cruises! Families will relax and play together aboard an intimate ship as a team of Adventure Guides lead engaging programming for adults and Junior Adventurers alike. Special presentations by naturalists will further immerse travelers in the stories of the ecosystems around them, and on select sailings, Disney animal and photography experts will host conversations and hands-on workshops about wildlife, conservation and travel photography. These curated, authentic itineraries are geared towards families with children older than 4, providing hassle-free travel and VIP experiences all with the world-class service you expect from Disney.
