Hollywood Studios Early Morning Magic returns

Early Morning Magic is an opportunity to experience select attractions and enjoy a nice breakfast before regular park opening.  There is an additional cost involved, but getting access to Toy Story Land  in Hollywood Studios with very few guests can offset the cost involved.  Here’s the details.

What is it?

Guests earn early access to all Toy Story Land attractions including:

  • Slinky Dog Dash
  • Alien Swirling Saucers
  • Toy Story Mania
  • Meet Buzz Lightyear
  • Meet Jessie and Woody
  • “A continental buffet with yogurt, fruit, pastries and assorted cereal, as well as your choice of a main dish like avocado toast or fried chicken served with a tasty cronut. The breakfast  will be available at a select quick-service dining location outside of Toy Story Land.”

How to tour with this offering:

I would book my Fastpasses for Rock n Roller Coaster, Tower of Terror and Star Tours and the remainder of the day in Studios will be pretty simple with characters and shows.

Will these events affect the crowds in the park?

Absolutely NOT.  These events are available to very few people and do not affect park attendance at all.

Call (407) 827-7350 or visit this link at Disney World’s website to purchase today.

I’ll be adding these dates to my Crowd Calendars today as well.

  1. If they were to continue this into March any idea when dates would be released? Today was my dining day and nothing….. for mickeys bbq either!

  2. Kenny—have you noticed several dates have a 7 and 7:30 time slot? Dates are 10/29, 11/7, and 11/26. What do you think the reason is for that ?

  3. I was looking at times this morning and the $79 does not include tax for October dates. I am seeing $79 x 2 ($158) and $10.28 tax for a total of $168.28.

  4. Want to do this but don’t want to miss out on meeting Vampirina at Hollywood and Vine Breakfast. What do you think the odds of Vampirina being in Animation Courtyard by early December?

  5. This experience is worth every penny. Count me in!! Kenny, I know you will be there on the first day – Sept.17th, just like when I saw you the first day of EMM @ Fantasyland a few years back:)

  6. If you have the choice between EMM or Disney After Hours, go with DAH. We did it in Feb and it was well worth it. Longest wait was at the lines that had the complimentary popcorn. Waited about 12 minutes for 7D. Everything else was literally walk-on.

  7. I love this but I am hoping they bring back the Magic Kingdom EMM in December. We will be there starting the 9th but with a 2 and 5 year old and Fantasmic dining already booked I think it will be too much

  8. Don’t love the extra cost but if they extend this to the end of February I’ll probably look into it to save time! Any word on if they’ll extend past the current end of December date?
