One of the best aspects of visiting Walt Disney World is meeting some of our favorite characters. Mickey and friends, the Disney Princesses, and more are always out and about in the theme parks greeting Guests and taking the perfect photo.

But it’s no lie that when a rare character makes an appearance, it’s an even more magical moment! I’m talking Robin Hood and Friar Tuck, some of the Disney villains, Clarabelle Cow, Horace Horsecollar, and even Pinocchio!

Well, we have some great news to share as a rare fan-favorite Disney character has made a surprise appearance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios — Genie from Disney’s Aladdin.
