Walt Disney World will offer a new Magic Kingdom breakfast option for guests who want to get the park early to ride a few rides in addition to fueling for the day. Guests who purchase tickets for this special dining experience will have early-morning access to select attractions as well as a breakfast buffet, announced Disney on April 6.
Disney Early Morning Magic will take place on select mornings in Fantasyland and New Fantasyland, beginning April 26. The experience includes a breakfast buffet at Pinocchio Village Haus, but the primary draw for guests may be the three attractions available to ride before Magic Kingdom opens to day guests: The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan’s Flight and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.
Guests who purchase a ticket to Disney Early Morning Magic, will check in at the gates of Magic Kingdom at 7:30 a.m. before being admitted to the park at 7:45 a.m., more than an hour before the general public. Guests may then enjoy exclusive access to the above attractions before Magic Kingdom opens at 9 a.m. to all guests.
The Pinocchio Village Haus breakfast buffet portion of the experience will run from 8:30 – 10 a.m. The menu includes such items as scrambled eggs and vegetable frittatas, smoked bacon, pork and turkey sausages, potatoes, cheese and cured meats, pastries, fruit and beverages. And, of course, Mickey waffles.
Disney Early Morning Magic costs $69 per adult and $59 per child ages 3-9 (plus tax). Admission to Magic Kingdom is not included with the purchase of a Disney Early Morning Magic ticket; separate theme-park admission is required. Disney Early Magic Morning may be booked online through Walt Disney World’s website or by calling the Disney Reservation Center at (407) 827-7350. Availability is limited, although Disney has not indicated the experience’s daily cap; tickets are also non-refundable and non-transferable.
Worth noting for guests who stay on-site at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel: Disney Early Morning Magic (EMH) will not take place on the same days as Extra Magic Hours mornings. EMH is a perk for guests staying on-site, allowing them to enter a select Disney theme park an hour earlier than day guests on certain days.
Disney Early Morning Magic is the latest premium experience Walt Disney World Resort has added to its roster of add-on options. Earlier this week, the Orlando-area theme park resort announced its “Disney After Hours” hard-ticket event through which guests may stay in the Magic Kingdom three hours after it closes to day guests, experiencing select attractions with shorter lines and fewer crowds. Club Villain, a Disney Villain experience introduced in January at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, has been extended after a short run – its price increased from $99 (including tax and gratuity) to $129.
Among the resort’s other changes: Walt Disney World has also recently introduced seasonal pricing for its one-day tickets, in addition to an increase on prices on multi-day tickets; increased the price of its Disney Dining Plan; distributed a survey asking about charging a separate resort fee; and initiated testing of preferred parking at Magic Kingdom and Epcot for an additional $15 per vehicle.
