Earlier this week we told you about Disney After Hours, a $149.00 event that gives you three hours after park close to enjoy the Magic Kingdom. Well, now we’re finding that Disney will be rolling out an early morning option as well, one that will let you into select Fantasyland attractions early and provide a little bit of breakfast:

Fantasyland Fun Before the Park Opens

Make your Walt Disney World mornings more magical than ever with a first-access experience in the park!

Rising with the sun on select mornings, Disney Early Morning Magic gives you the chance to be among the first to enter Magic Kingdom park and experience a trio of Fantasyland attractions:

  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
  • Peter Pan’s Flight.

Plus, in addition to the early-morning fun, you can get your fill of a fantastic continental breakfast at Pinocchio Village Haus—featuring such scrumptious breakfast fare as:

  • Chilled juices, coffee and teas
  • Seasonal fruit and berries
  • Freshly baked pastries
  • Cheese and cured meats
  • Scrambled eggs with assorted toppings

  • That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard of. So you get an overpriced breakfast and access to 3 rides that you already have access to during the day with your overpriced park ticket.

  • So, does that mean Fantasyland is closed until 10 on those mornings? Unbelievable, how much more free are we going to put up with ? If I hadn’t already bought my tickets, I would rethink my June trip!

  • The fact that it doesn’t include mine cart and little mermaid makes it pointless. I could kind of see this as a good idea for some people especially if you are flying out that day. But there are not enough rides open to justify it

    • The Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train is included. I am assuming that is what you are talking about. A little strange that Mermaid is not.

    • Little Mermaid is easier to walk on given the omni-mover track. The three listed rides are the rides that are typically the hardest to ride.

  • Eventually MK is going to be a 24 hour park or going to have different tickets for different times of the day.

  • It’s especially dumb when you consider that we aren’t that far removed from the e-ticket which gave you the very same thing for $12 bucks/person.

  • The bad will and resentment Disney creates with these new exploitative programs will have long-term negative effects on brand loyalty and customer retention.

  • We just spend a lot of money to take 9 people 4 kids 2 of which were under 2 years of age. My 7 yr old was so disappointed in the whole trip because waits to get on the rides were 2-3 hrs and everything we tried to get a fastpass for was either booked or not until 10pm-11pm at night. It was a waste of money and I’ll never go back. We could have spent way less money and went to the Tampa zoo and he would have had fun they have animals and rides for only $20 for kids. I will never forget the look on my son’s face as we walked around literally hip to hip because it was so packed. There was nothing magical about it only upset kids.

    • Mandie I am definitely NOT defending this new FP+ system, but a few thing could have contributed to your very bad experience.
      1. Did you book your Fastpasses far in advance?
      2. Were you Disney resort guests, which allow you to book Fastpasses 6mos in advance?
      3. Did you go during a holiday or high volume time of year?
      These definitely could have contributed to your bad experience. I went to Disneyland in CA beginning of December and it was horrible. Try to go again possibly first week in December, right after Thanksgiving, even if you need to take children out of school, it is worth it.

      Hope you give it another chance and hope it is a better experience.

      • Resort guest can only select fastpasses 60 DAYS, NOT MONTHS, in advance. You can make dining reservations 6 MONTHS in advance if you are a resort guest.

    • You clearly didn’t plan enough Mandie. Sounds like you’re one of the guests who just shows up and expects everything to be easy and a walk on. News flash this is Disney world NOT THE TAMPA ZOO. Try and put a little effort in your vactions and maybe you wont upset your son so much.

  • I am sure this will require park admission, just like any other dining experience. I wonder how they keep others who are eating in other restaurants prior to park opening from riding?

    Is it true that these new fees and programs are to pay for the money being lost in one of the Asian parks?

  • the only way Disney will stop this madness is when it hurts THEM in the pocket. We as consumers can ban together and refuse to pay.

  • It seems like each week that passes there is a new reason to be disappointed in Disney. The news of the past few weeks includes tier pricing, premium parking, reduced cast members, etc, etc, etc.
