Wondering About Hidden Mickeys at the Magic Kingdom

Mon, 09/24/2018 - 6:53am

from Hidden Mickey Guy Steve Barrett I wonder about some of the following images. The first one is from Main Street, U.S.A., on top of a shelf near the ceiling inside the Crystal Arts store. Walk to the left side (as you enter) of the back room of the shop and look high. It’s a …

Review: Early Morning Magic = Breakfast and Toy Story Land Fun!

Sun, 09/23/2018 - 2:00pm

You may have heard that Walt Disney World is offering its guests a chance to enter the new Toy Story Land early via a special ticketed program called Early Morning Magic.

With Early Morning Magic, you can gain exclusive access to the land before the park officially opens to other guests. In addition, you’ll be treated to a breakfast buffet at the ABC Commissary. This program is similar to one that has been in place at the Magic Kingdom for a few years now.

Early Morning Magic at Toy Story Land started on Sept. 17, so AllEars.Net went to check it out.

Originally, Early Morning Magic at the Studios was scheduled to start at 7:30 a.m., but due to the number of people attending, they may actually start letting you in at 7 a.m.

Once you check in and get your special wristband, you can make your way over to the ABC Commissary, where breakfast is being served, or over to Toy Story Land. It’s cool to see the park as it wakes up, practically empty.

Breakfast is served in the Commissary until 10 a.m., but regular park guests are allowed into the park at 9 a.m. If riding the three Toy Story Land attractions multiple times is your objective, you’ll want to head over there first. You’ll have about 90 minutes to ride before the crowds build, then you can eat later.

When you get to Toy Story Land, you’ll be greeted by a rare sight — a near-empty land with practically no waits to get on Slinky Dog Dash, Alien Swirling Saucers, or Toy Story Mania.

Once you’ve had your fill of fun, walk back over to the Commissary to fill up on food.

There’s quite an extensive buffet with cold items, including  yogurt, cereal, fruit and assorted pastries.

You also get a choice of one hot entree. These all looked delicious — and they were definitely not your run-of-the-mill breakfast selections. The chefs here really upped their game.

Mexican Corn Chilaquiles and Eggs Bowl

Shrimp and Southern Grits Bowl

Fried Chicken and Cinnamon Sugar French Donut Bowl

Smashed Avocado Toast Egg Plate

Breakfast Charcuterie Platter

Kids aren’t forgotten — they can sample everything on the buffet. There are also kid-sized portions of the Fried Chicken and Cinnamon Sugar French Donut or Scrambled Eggs. Both come with Sweet Potato barrels.

Early Morning Magic takes place on select Mondays and Wednesdays.  Note that it DOES NOT replace or conflict with Extra Magic Hours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Early Morning Magic is held on alternate days so that it does not affect Extra Magic Hours at all.

Admission to this special event is $79 (plus tax) per adult (ages 10 and older) and $69 (plus tax) per child (ages 3 to 9). Regular theme park admission is also required. So far, there appear to be no discounts for passholders or others.

Is it worth the money? It really depends on how desperately you want to experience the new Toy Story Land and see the characters there without having to wait in sometimes ridiculously long lines. If riding Slinky Dog Dash and the other attractions is important to you, and you don’t want to wait or waste time wrangling a Fastpass+, then Early Morning Magic might be for you.

If you decide it is, you can book Early Morning Magic at Toy Story Land on the  Walt Disney World website or by calling (407) 827-7350.

Disclosure: We were invited by Walt Disney World to attend the media preview of Early Morning Magic in Toy Story Land and received a complimentary ticket for the event. This did not affect our reporting of the event — our opinions are our own.

Plaza Restaurant to Begin Serving Breakfast!

Sat, 09/22/2018 - 1:04pm

Located just off Main Street, U.S.A. as you head toward Tomorrowland, the Magic Kingdom’s Plaza Restaurant will begin serving breakfast for a limited time on November 4.

Menu items will include Lobster Benedict with fried green tomatoes, two poached eggs, house-made breakfast potatoes, hollandaise and of course, lobster.  Another option is a create-your-own omelet with ingredients like sausage, bacon, ham, onions, peppers, tomatoes, and cheese.

A classic All-American breakfast with scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, sausage, bacon, a biscuit, and Mickey waffles is also on the menu.

Speaking of Mickey waffles, you’ll also find them on the children’s menu. Served over banana cream, dusted with powdered sugar, and topped with Mickey-shaped sprinkles, the dish also comes with fresh-cut fruit, sausage, and bacon.

The Plaza Restaurant will serve breakfast every day through January 5, 2019, starting at 8 a.m. until 10:30 a.m.

You can make reservations now on the Walt Disney World Resort website or by calling 407 WDW-DINE (407 939-3463).
