Disney Early Morning Magic at Toy Story Land

Rise and shine with the new Disney Early Morning Magic at Toy Story Land in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  On select Monday and Wednesday mornings from 7:30 am – 8:45 am, guests can experience the magic of Andy’s Backyard with the Disney Early Morning Magic special event admission. The very first Disney Early Morning Magic kicked off September 17th, and we could not be more excited.  From starting your day with a delightful breakfast to character meet & greets and enjoying all your favorite Toy Story Land rides without the lines, this event is pure magic.



Included in the price of the ticket, guests will enjoy a delicious breakfast at ABC Commissary.  Both adults and children get to select an entree and then get to nosh at the continental breakfast buffet. Breakfast will be served until 10 am.  In addition, there is a complimentary water and coffee station outside of Woody’s Lunchbox, so event goers can stay hydrated while out and about for the event. Check out the video below of the breakfast entree selections.

Here are the adult breakfast selections:

  • Fried Chicken & French Donut Cinnamon – Sugar Bowl with Sweet Potato Barrels (which I sampled – BEYOND!!)
  • Shrimp and Southern Grits Bowl
  • Mexican Corn Chilaquiles & Eggs Bowl
  • Breakfast Charcuterie Platter
  • Smashed Avocado Toast & Egg Plate

Children can choose between Scrambled Eggs & Sweet Potato Barrels or Fried Chicken & French Donut.

The continental breakfast buffet has something for everyone, even the pickiest eaters.  Be sure to watch the video to see all goodies available like pastries, and create your own yogurt.

Slinky Dog Dash

Yes, the standby time only said five minutes for Slinky Dog Dash.  Who else remembers the 200+ minute wait on opening day back in June?! Realistically, the wait was probably only two-three minutes aka how long it took me to get the front of the queue, which was fantastic! This is hands down my new favorite ride at Walt Disney World right now.  You can not help but smile as you race past Jesse and Rex or when you watch Wheezy singing at the end.

Alien Swirling Saucers

Alien Swirling Saucers is a ride for the whole family to enjoy (minimum height requirement is 32″).  Plus, who does not love just walking on the ride especially if you have toddlers and young children in tow. All the little details throughout the ride like the actual Pizza Planet and of course “The Claw” with bright vibrant colors bring the ride to life. Check out the video below to watch the Aliens in action.

Toy Story Mania

Nothing like starting the day with a brand new high score of 162,000 on Toy Story Mania. Despite the sign saying 10 minutes, it was really just the couple minute walk up to the front of the line. Another great ride for your family to enjoy together (no height requirement)!


Do not forget to see your favorite Toy Story characters – Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Jesse!  You can find Buzz Lightyear just past the Toy Story Land entrance sign ( PS call him Mrs. Nesbitt next time you see him LOL).  Woody and Jesse greet guests outside of Toy Story Mania.  Also, be sure to have your autograph books handy!

Overall Thoughts

Just take a look at the pictures above. The first photo is during the Early Morning Magic and the others are when the park opens to regular guests at 9 am.  The before and after is why this event is worth it! Start your morning with an amazing breakfast, then head to Toy Story Land to visit with the classic Toy Story characters and ride Toy Story Mania, Alien Swirling Saucers and Slinky Dog Dash without the crazy crowds.  To find out more information and how to purchase your Disney Early Morning Magic at Toy Story Land special event admission, click here.
