News: Disney’s Hollywood Studios Early Morning Magic Event Now Available for Booking

Remember a few months ago when Disney released a new Early Morning Magic option for early birds at Magic Kingdom?

Here’s the basic gist: purchase of a limited-entry special ticket event — in addition to regular park admission — allows guests to enter the park early and ride a few in-demand attractions before the park’s regular opening and enjoy an included breakfast to boot. Well, it appears a similar event is coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Early Morning Magic participants will have the chance to enjoy Star Tours and Toy Story Mania, as well as participate in Meet and Greets with Mickey and Minnie, Woody and Buzz, and Olaf. The event runs from 7:45 am to 10:00 am on select Mondays and Wednesdays, and is currently bookable via the Disney World website (or by calling 407-827-7350) for dates beginning August 1st through the end of September 2016.

Just like Magic Kingdom’s early morning event, breakfast will be included as part of the experience. ABC Commissary will be the host of this all-you-care-to-eat experience from 8:00 – 10:00 am.

The buffet will include items like freshly baked Pastries, Scrambled Eggs, Spinach and Mushroom Frittata, Bacon and Pork Sausage, Cheesy Potatoes, Puffed French Toast, Muesli, Fruits and Berries, and beverages such as coffee, tea, milk, and chilled fruit juices.

Early Morning Magic at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is available with the purchase of a separate ticket (in addition to regular park admission, which is also required). The cost for the extra event is $69 per adult, and $59 for children ages 3 to 9 (not including tax). Please note that, according to the Disney World website, “At approximately 9:00 AM, the theme park will open to Guests with regular theme park admission tickets and event-only attraction access will end.”

With increased demand at Epcot for new experiences like Soarin’ Around the World and Frozen Ever After, we can’t help but wonder if that park is next for an Early Morning Magic Event? We’ll be keeping an eye out, and will keep you posted here.

    For some reason,this doesn’t interest me at all. After paying park admission, it seems like paying all over again.

    This is a laugher….
    What’s left in this park to do?
    So regularly the park opens at 9….I would have reserved fast passes for Toy Story, Star Wars and Olaf, and now like 3 more rides to do.
    I cannot believe the people that would do this.

    I would seriously consider this at Epcot if the Tier 1 attractions were open early, but I agree with others that this one is not worth it. It’s really just one hour unencumbered, and then you could have breakfast when general admission starts, but you’d miss probably the least crowded hour of the actual park hours doing that. As it is, I’m planning to spend about 3 hours in this park on my next trip – there’s just not much to do there right now.

    I’m confused. Do they keep the two rides closed to everyone else until 10AM? Or is there just a special line for the people that paid for the additional ticket?
