Tiana's Bayou Adventure - Virtual Queue, Genie+, PhotoPass, and Previews

Virtual Queue, Genie+, and PhotoPass

Disney has announced the Tiana's Bayou Adventure will have a virtual queue when it opens on July 28th in the Magic Kingdom.

1. Drop on in-to virtual queue…

When Tiana’s Bayou Adventure opens on June 28, it will use a virtual queue. Guests can request to join the virtual queue via the My Disney Experience app at one of two times: 7 a.m. or 1 p.m. While a standby queue will not be available during the attraction’s initial opening days, we expect to open a standby queue soon after the attraction’s opening.  

Visit for more details about how virtual queues at Disney World work and what you need to know before visiting Magic Kingdom.  

2. … or use Disney Genie+ service.

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will also be included as a Lightning Lane entrance in Disney Genie+ service*. Purchasing this service on the My Disney Experience app helps you get to some of your favorite attractions faster through Lightning Lane entrances and includes digital downloads of select Disney PhotoPass attraction photos taken in the park on the day of your purchase at no additional charge. Guests may check the app on the day of their visit for pricing and availability. 

The fact they are choosing to open with a virtual queue in unsurprising. This has been there goto stradegy for the last several ride openings including Gaurdians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind and Tron Lightcycle/Run.. What is interesting is that the Magic Kingdom already has a virtual queue in place for Tron Lightcycle/Run. We have no information about how this will work with two different virtual queues in the same park. I've read that it is likely Tron's will be discontinued before the opening of Tiana's Bayou Adventure. On the other hand the wording on Disney's announcement reads as though the virtual queue on Tiana's will be temporary and move to a regular standby queue fairly quickly. We will update when we have more information.

It is also interesting to note that Tiana's Bayou Adventure will not have a paid Inidivual Lightning Lane, but will be instead be included in Genie+. To date we have not has a virtual queue Genie+ pairing, so it will be interesting to see how this works.


Disney has also released a sneak peak at the PhotoPass ride picture:

  • No party is complete without pictures. As you make your way through the bayou to get to Tiana’s party, Disney PhotoPass Service will serve up a special photo when you’re almost there.
