Are you getting yourself a ticket to Early Morning Magic?

    What a rip off! $70 for only 3 rides and basically a quick service breakfast? Let’s see… they charge over $100 for a full day and they want to charge $70 for an hour. Even event tickets are less money and they offer 3-4 hours of time with more unique extras (i.e. Halloween them or trick or treating in park, etc). A quick service meal is about $10-$14, so that means one hour for over $55 – oh and it will not be an hour since you need to spend time eating. Who is the sucker that will buy this?? Unfortunately too many people will and that is why they offer it. If you want to go early then go to morning extra magic hours and you get in 1 hour earlier for no extra cost (if resort guest) and you have a great shot at riding far more rides – pre-book your FP+ (not a fan of this either – but that is conversation for another time) for anything harder to get on like Mine Train (if you don’t want to run there first thing as that has longest wait). Save your money… WDW is expensive enough without being ripped off with this offer.

      You seem really mad about this package? Are they forcing you to buy it? Or will the existence of the package make your trip any different?

      I don’t think that is the case. Sure it is expensive, it is a bad value for most people. But for some this is a way to get into the park early and ride 7 dwarves before the 2 hour wait gets there. If they get to the park at 7:45 they can scratch those 3 rides off their list and move on to another park earlier.

      I am sure Disney has seen a demand for this package or it wouldn’t exist. The price reflects the cost of getting employees there earlier to work a certain (limited) area of the park. It also reflects the fact this is a limited admission event.

      Oh and 7:45 to 10:00 is 2 hours and 15 minutes. Not an hour.

      1. Roko

        Alan, this package is ridiculously priced, and I also see your point of getting on the popular rides first thing in the morning before the lines get ridiculous. I just want to let let you know, technically it is just about 1 hour extra because the park opens to the public at 9am not 10 am like you stated above.

    2. Barbara

      I agree with you 100%. I can afford it but that’s not the point. WDW is soon going to be out pricing themselves. How can a family of 4 afford going there?

    3. Moe

      It’s $1 per 1 minute. So it depends on how you want to see it. $70 for an hour of rides and a fast food breakfast is a lot of money and with tax, that’s over $300 for a family of four on top of their regular admission. BUT you can do 12+ hours worth of stuff in that time if you consider waits later in the day which will exceed over 70 min easy in regular lines.

      So my goal is to ride Mine Train and Peter Pan rides at lease 4 times each and Winnie the Pooh, once or twice.

      Because there is virtually no other opportunity to ride Mine Train or Peter Pan’s Flight this many times in a row with waits this short.

  2. Greg

    Yeah, I would never pay it either, but plenty of people who travel to Disney World, and can afford to stay in the Deluxe Resorts, will have no problem shelling out that amount of money for a few extra hours in the resorts, with little wait time for two of the most popular attractions. And Disney knows that. Again, if you don’t want to pay it, don’t. But others will be happy to.

    1. EricJ

      Uh, people who stay in the Deluxe resorts (and the Values, and the Moderates) already GET Early Morning hours…
      This is being marketed to the people who don’t.

      1. Greg

        Actually, this is NOT EMH. Firstly, it is offered on non-MK EMH mornings, and secondly, it includes a breakfast buffet. It is also longer, but obviously has fewer rides available. I assure you, that people staying at the resorts will partake in this. It will not just be non-Resort guests. It’s not for me though, that’s for sure.

  3. Meli

    I’m just waiting for them to start charging to use the bathroom. Then they can start the “Disney Magical Bathroom Hours”–for $70, you can use the facilities as much as you want.

    1. Alan

      Lol. Comparing a ticketed event to a standard commodity, you must be the person that everyone gawks at while they complain about paying for refills at quick service restaurants.

  4. Adam

    I’d tell any other Aussies staying off site to buy this package for sure.

    You could ride all of these attractions a couple of times in two hours, and save yourself up to three hours of standing in lines if you didn’t have a Fastpass.

    A great idea for overseas guests BUT the park would have to be strict on the timings and not let other guests in early.

  5. Genesis

    hmm I wonder if this is just a way for Disney to get more people to come to their park and stay away from visiting universal either way Disney is just getting greedy with trying to make money
