The Early Morning Magic in Toy Story Land comes at a premium worth of $79 for adults and $69 for youngsters ages Three-9 for simply an hour and a half of unique time within the land, plus breakfast. With the sticker shock of this pricing, I didn’t even consider it as an choice at first, however after listening to nice evaluations of it, I began to think about. In the long run, we determined to do it since we might solely be paying for Three of the 5 of us, and my youngsters love Toy Story.

The grand whole for the expertise was $241.77 for me, my husband, a Four-year-old who might experience all the pieces, a 2-year-old who might experience all however Slinky Canine Sprint, and a 1-year-old who might solely experience Toy Story Mania. 

We arrived on the park a bit earlier than 7 am in our automotive. The parking was shut and simple, even with the development occurring. Verify-in and safety was comparatively fast, and we had been admitted into the park immediately. As we walked down a largely empty Hollywood Boulevard, we had been directed to Backlot Categorical for breakfast. Since I had heard they often allow you to into the land earlier than 7:30, my Four-year-old and I went to attend to be admitted into the land whereas my husband took the youthful two for breakfast. 

They ended up not strolling us again to Toy Story Land till precisely 7:30. It felt like an early model of rope drop with how many individuals had been lined up and heading over to Slinky Canine Sprint — not what I had in thoughts for premium pricing. Nonetheless, my daughter and I had been capable of get on inside 10-15 minutes. She ended up hating the experience, so we didn’t have to attend for it once more — which was nice since traces had been about 30-minutes lengthy in the course of the occasion.

Whereas we had been ready for Slinky Canine Sprint, my husband took the opposite two youngsters to attend to satisfy Woody and Jessie. By the point we had been off Slinky, we joined them in line and ended up ready one other 15 minutes till the youngsters might meet them. So, for 2 points of interest we spent about 1/Three of our time already. 


Subsequent we headed to satisfy Buzz, who had no line. He took his time with the youngsters, after which we took a fast photograph — with no wait — by the Toy Story Land signal. 

After parking the strollers, we walked over to Toy Story Mania. We waited perhaps 5 minutes for the experience after which went over to Alien Swirling Saucers after, since we had been operating out of time. We switched off driving it with the older two. 

After finishing all rides, we took a pair pictures and began heading over to get out of Toy Story Land because the mass variety of individuals had been heading in. 


After the park opened, we had been capable of meet Minnie and Mickey with a 5-10 minute wait and received into line for Olaf, however sadly the youngsters needed to get out of line for the toilet. After the toilet break the road was as much as 25 minutes, so we headed over to breakfast. 

I had the Fried Hen and Cinnamon-Sugar French Donut Bowl, which got here with candy potato barrels. It was mainly hen tenders with maple syrup. The donut was actually good, however the candy potato barrels — which had been simply candy potato tots — received syrup on them from the hen and weren’t nice. My husband had the Shrimp and Southern Grits Bowl, which he stated was actually good, in addition to the Breakfast Charcuterie Platter. He beloved the smoked salmon on the platter. 

The continental breakfast was fairly good as nicely. It had number of yogurt with toppings, cereals, fruit, and pastries. We ordered one kids’s hen and donut bowl, and there was a lot for all three of my youngsters to eat between that, our meals, and the continental breakfast. 

Everybody should have had the identical thought — to get in another rides with low waits earlier than consuming — as a result of the realm was packed. We ended up consuming exterior so we’d have room for all of us and the strollers. They closed down the continental breakfast promptly at 10 am and wouldn’t even allow us to again into the constructing at the moment.


In whole, we had been capable of experience Slinky Canine Sprint as soon as, Toy Story Mania as soon as, Alien Swirling Saucers twice, meet Buzz, Woody, Jessie, Mickey and Minnie, and take some pictures between 7-10. I anticipated to do no less than a bit extra and puzzled if Disney oversold this occasion because it was a busier time of yr. Additionally, we needed to take care of parking and retrieving our strollers in addition to different toddler tendencies that slowed us down a bit. 

Total, $242 is some huge cash for 90 minutes in a land that had 30-minute wait instances for the primary attraction, however for us it was value it to do as soon as so we might see the land with out enormous Spring Break crowds. Since my husband is a trainer we will solely go to Walt Disney World in excessive crowd instances, so this was our method of experiencing a part of it with low crowds.

Would we do it once more? Most likely not. I’d take into account doing one other park, however not Toy Story Land once more for that worth.
