Upcharge events are definitely the new normal at Walt Disney World, and this month has brought some interesting updates for guests looking to add a little something "extra" to their next trip to the resort. From the extension of a long-running nighttime event near the Magic Kingdom to new upcharge events at Fort Wilderness and Disney Springs, here are all the upcharge updates you need to know about!
1. Brand new Return to Sleepy Hollow event announced for Halloween
This Halloween season, Walt Disney World guests will be able to enjoy a spooky new event at the Fort Wilderness Resort that revolves around the 1937 animated film The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The event starts off with a screening of this movie at the Tri-Circle D Ranch and is then followed by a meet and greet with the Headless Horseman himself! Guests who attend this event will also be able to take home an exclusive limited edition pin.
This event will be available twice nightly at 8:00 PM and 10:00 PM on September 29th – 30th, Thursdays and Sundays in October, and on October 30th and 31st. The cost to attend will be $22 for general admission or $38 for “premium” admission, which includes seats in the first five rows, priority access to the Headless Horseman meet and greet, and a special Sleepy Hollow treat bag.
Reservations for the Return to Sleepy Hollow event are not currently available online, but can be made by calling 407-WDW-PLAY. Note: you do not need to be a guest of the Fort Wilderness Resort to make a reservation for this event.
2. Amorette's Cake Decorating Experience at Amorette's Patisserie
Amorette’s Patisserie has become one of the most-trafficked sweet spots in all of Walt Disney World, in large part because of its simply beautiful cakes and confections. And if you've always wanted to learn how to make goodies like those featured at this Disney Springs establishment, there is a new limited-time upcharge event taking place that will help you do just that!
Taking place Friday mornings (8:45 AM to 10:30 AM) from March 31 through May 5 2017, this upcharge experience costs $129 for 2 guests (10 or older) who are decorating a single cake. A second cake can be purchased for $40 for a second guest. During the 90 minute experience, guests will be able to gather in Amorette's Show Kitchen before the shop officially opens for the day and learn how to pour glaçage and coat Mickey's sculpted ears, tail, belt and buttons with edible paint as they create one of Amorette's signature dome cakes.
Non-alcoholic and alcoholic refreshments are included in the cost of this experience, and guests can take their creation home once they are finished. Guests can also elect to keep their cake at Amorette’s Patisserie for pick up later in the day.
