Disney Early Morning Magic at the Magic Kingdom to Offer Additional Experiences
Ever since the Walt Disney World Resort introduced Disney Early Morning Magic at the Magic Kingdom, it’s been an extremely popular option for Guests! During the very early morning event, Guests are able to experience Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Peter Pan’s Flight, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh with almost no wait, as well as enjoy a delicious breakfast.
Well, starting in December, things are gonna get a little better!
Beginning December 2, in addition to the previous three attractions, Guests will also be able to experience Princess Fairytale Hall, “it’s a small world”, Mad Tea Party, and Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid. (As a head’s up, Peter Pan’s Flight will be closed for refurbishment and will not be available on January 8, 15, 22, 29 or February 3, 5.)
Also, breakfast will be moving over to Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe. Here, Guests will be able to enjoy:
- Scrambled eggs
- Smoked bacon
- Breakfast potatoes
- Freshly baked pastries
- Cheese and cured meats
- Seasonal fruit
- Assorted juices
- Coffee and teas
Disney Early Morning Magic takes place on select Tuesdays and Saturdays from 7:45 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Official check-in takes place near the far left turnstiles of the Main Entrance to Magic Kingdom park beginning at 7:30 a.m. Guests receive an event sticker for identification upon check-in. Then beginning at 7:45 a.m., Guests are guided into Fantasyland. Do keep in mind that the Magic Kingdom will open at 9:00 a.m. to Guests with regular Magic Kingdom admission and access to the event-only attractions will end.
With the additional attractions, the cost of the tickets for Disney Early Morning Magic will increased to $79 per adult and $69 per child (tax not included).

So, a family of 4 (mom, dad and 2 young children—the ages Fantasyland is geared to) can drop an extra $300 + tax for 75 minutes of access to a few attractions before the usual crowds stampede in. Plus a very late buffet breakfast. Plus regular admission, of course.
How much longer can useful, helpful sites such as this continue to present this price-gouging with a cheery straight face? Add paying for overnight resort parking, a host of other recent upcharges, Epcot becoming a year-round drunkfest and “coming attractions” revealed as a few more “dance parties” and the magic gets harder to find… let alone afford. No wonder a recent blog post features resort-only non-park staycation tips. smh
Unfortunately, you are witnessing the development of Disney’s ability to cater to those bringing in the most revenue. I too am amazed at the countless new ways Disney has figured out how to charge large amounts of money for very small “benefits.” The message is if you want to be treated like a princess, you have to pay princess prices.
I have to agree. Disney’s zeal to wring every last penny out of guests has started draining away the magic. It’s starting to feel too much like a premium experience instead of a family experience. Disappointing. A new gilded age, I guess.
