Is Disney Early Morning Magic: Fantasyland Worth Getting Up For?

IMG_3495Is it worth to pay $69 per adult and $59 per child for an hour and 15 minutes of extra early ride time on the three most popular Fantasyland attractions and breakfast? That is just what I aimed to find out!IMG_3342Starting on select dates, Disney Extra Magic Mornings have a 7:30 a.m. check-in time and entry into the park and access to Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Peter Pan’s Flight, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh starting at 7:45 a.m. Each DEMM guest is wristbanded and walked in with other guests who have dining reservations at Crystal Palace and Be Our Guest for breakfast, but we are set free to head to the attractions right away.IMG_3350 IMG_3349According to Cast Members at the event, approximately 200 tickets are sold to the Early Morning Magic which, to me, seemed like a high number because, in the hour I had to enjoy the attractions, I may have seen a hand full of other guests on the attractions with myself.IMG_3387 IMG_3388IMG_3480 IMG_3417IMG_3419As a guest of the Disney Extra Magic Morning – Fantasyland you have about an hour without any guest permitted on the three attractions with the breakfast available from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. in Pinocchio Village Haus. IMG_3415As far as breakfast goes, this is far beyond anything I expected.

  • Chilled juices, coffee and teas
  • Seasonal fruit and berries
  • Freshly baked pastries
  • Cheese and cured meats
  • Scrambled eggs with assorted toppings
  • Vegetable frittata
  • Smoked bacon
  • Pork and turkey sausages
  • Fried potatoes with caramelized onions
  • Waffles with butter and syrup

IMG_3459IMG_3449 IMG_3448 IMG_3453If you are an earlier riser and want to enjoy those three attractions as many times as you like in that hour pretty much alone, this is an excellent way to go, plus you are provided with a great breakfast this would be an excellent option. I am much more of an attraction person, so I would choose this over a character breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table, but you do have to factor in this is still more expensive than that option. Also, one of the things to take into consideration is a regular theme park admission is needed to take part in this event.IMG_3411Now for the big question I have gotten: would i rather do this or the Disney After Hours event? That is more of a question you need to ask yourself. If you have little ones, Disney Early Morning Magic will probably work much better for you. As for me, I would rather do the Disney After Hours because I am more of an evening person and, instead of just three attractions for an hour, you have 26 attractions for three hours. Of course the evening event is also more than twice the price and includes ice cream and soda as opposed to an actual meal.IMG_2536For more information and to be able to purchase tickets to Disney Early Morning Magic – Fantasyland get your tickets now for you next trip here.
