There are a lot of exciting things happening at Disney World for the 50th Anniversary!
We’ve got new entertainment, new merchandise, new fireworks, new attractions, new snacks...SO many things are new! But later this fall when Disney Genie+ launches at Disney World, a very OLD photo op will be returning to Magic Kingdom.
Disney Genie+ is the replacement for Disney’s formerly free FastPass+ system. Genie+ will cost $15 per ticket, per day at Disney World and include access to skip the wait for certain attractions with the new Lightning Lanes around the parks. Also included in the cost of Genie+ at WDW are “Disney parks-themed audio experiences and photo features to capture your memories — augmented reality lenses for those visiting Walt Disney World Resort.”
We hadn’t received many more details about these new photo experiences until today, but now we know that one of the photo options will be a background of the 25th Anniversary birthday cake-themed Cinderella Castle. That’s right, a Cast Member confirmed to us today that you can take pictures in front of the cake castle again, just like it’s 1996!
We can’t wait to check out this filter in action when it launches with Disney Genie+ this fall. We’ll make sure to keep you updated on all the Disney World news!

Disclosure: In nearly all circumstances, Disney Food Blog writers and photographers pay full price for their own travel, hotel, food, beverage, and event tickets. We do this because it’s important to us as journalists to ensure not only that we give you unbiased opinions, but also that you can trust us to do so since we’re paying our own way. On rare occasions, when we are invited by a company to attend a preview as media, and when we choose to accept that invitation, we will always make you, our readers, aware of that situation. Today, we were invited by Disney World to attend their media preview of the 50th Anniversary offerings. Note that when we attend events as media we are 1) Not required to review that event/food on any of our channels, and 2) Not required to review that event/food favorably. You can always count on DFB to give you a 100% unbiased and honest review of any event that we attend, food that we eat, or beverage that we drink. You can see more in our Disclosure Policy.

The 25th cake castle was a birthday celebration as was 10th and 15th. Why did they go from birthday to anniversary? Who got married?
I loved the birthday cake castle.
