I did it. I got up at 5:30 am, and was walking into Hollywood Studios before 7 am to enjoy Early Morning Magic (EMM) at Toy Story Land! EMM is an extra ticketed event on select days. The ticket is $79 plus tax (you also must have park admission) This includes early entry to Toy Story Land and breakfast. The tickets do have to be purchased in advance which you can do so on MyDisneyExperience.com however we only booked a week in advance.
So in this post I’m going to let you know how we enjoyed EMM however I have heard a lot of different stories who had the same luck we had but also heard others who didn’t so take this post as you will but I do think we just had good luck on our morning of EMM.
5:30 am: We woke up (barely) to get ready. Which really meant we got moving at 5:45 am ha but we were out of our room at 6:30 and calling for a Minnie Van.
(You can call a Minnie Van from the Lyft app, this is an additional charge but you are also paying for convenience) The buses are running at this time but we just thought it would be easier.
7:00 am: We were walking into Hollywood Studios and they were guiding us over to the ABC Commissary where we would have breakfast however a little after 7 we were hearing an announcement that Andy’s Backyard was open so we quickly said breakfast can wait and made a speed walk over to Toy Story Land! We ended up walking in right behind the cast members to open the land.
7:10 am: We were the first ones riding Slinky Dog of the day! (GOALS!) We got off and got right back on! After that we road Alien’s Swirling Saucers, we could of rode that again but decided not to (literally they said we could just stay buckled if you wanted to ha), we were then heading over to meet Woody & Jessie, I spotted the photo pass cast member but they weren’t there yet but sure enough I spotted them making their way over so we ended up being first in line to meet them! (I’m telling you LUCK!) We then road Toy Story Mania, I lost again but what’s new. After that we got in line to meet Buzz maybe 5 minute wait!
8:00 am: Do we ride everything again? Or go enjoy the breakfast that’s included? Breakfast. We made our way back to the ABC Commissary which was now practically empty because everyone else made their way to TSL. You ordered a “meal” when you first walked in and then from there they had a buffet of assorted pastries, fruits, cereal, yogurt parfaits, as well as juices and coffee. I say “meal” because they were smaller portions.
The meal options were:
Mexican Corn Chilaquiles and Egg Bowl
Shrimp and Southern Grits Bowl
Fried Chicken and Cinnamon Sugar French Doughnut Bowl
Breakfast Charcuterie Platter
Smashed Avocado Toast and Egg Plate
We enjoyed the Smashed Avocado Toast and Egg Plate which was very good, I did want to try the Fried Chicken and Cinnamon Sugar French Doughnut Bowl because that just sounds SO good but I didn’t want something so heavy at the beginning of a park day.
9:00 am: The park is now open, we decided we were going to get over to Rockin’ Rollercoaster for when it opened and we were able to ride that with a very short wait!
My advice to get the most for you money would be to head to Toy Story Land when you first get there, and then enjoy breakfast after you and see and do all the things. All and all we really enjoyed Early Morning Magic and felt like it was worth the money for us, but would definitely get pricey if you were enjoying this experience with your whole family.
This is a different experience than Extra Magic Hours that are offered if you are staying on Disney Property, these crowds are much lower as they should be since this is an extra paid ticket. They do offer Early Morning Magic at Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom as well!
Have you done Early Morning Magic at Toy Story Land? Did you have the same luck as us? Tell me in the comments below.
