Take a spin on Alien Swirling Saucers

If you’ve been worried about how to get to Toy Story Land in Hollywood Studios without a forever wait, there is now a solution!!

Disney has just announced “Early Morning Magic” for Hollywood Studio’s Toy Story Land, where with a separate ticket, you’ll be able to enter the Studios early and spend time in Toy Story Land, riding Toy Story Mania, Alien Swirling Saucers, and of course, Slinky Dog Dash, with little to no wait.  In addition, you’ll also have a chance to get great photos with Jessie, Woody and Buzz Lightyear meet n greets!

You’ll be able to enjoy the morning magic from 730a to 845a on selected Mondays and Wednesdays

And if you think you may be hungry after all these toy shenanigans, never fear — you’ll be treated to a delicious breakfast buffet with yogurt, fruit, pastries, assorted cereals, choices of avocado toast or a cronut with fried chicken. The set up will be available at a quick service location right outside of Toy Story Land.

PERSONAL OPINION: I personally have done the Early Morning Magic at Magic Kingdom, which included The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan’s Flight, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, as well as a breakfast at Pinocchio’s Village Haus. Tickets were similarly priced. Myself and two other adults rode Mine Train 8 times in a row, walked through Peter Pan’s queue slowly, enjoying all the details, and enjoyed Winnie the Pooh’s dark ride, then had a delicious breakfast. The crowds were very, very minimal and the event was worth the money to us (at least once) and that’s with two rides we wanted to ride once, and another (Mine Train) that we wanted to ride over and over… so for this to be at Toy Story Land, with three attractions that would be experience multiple times… I’d suggest if you can swing the cost, do this at least once.
