Price hikes and upcharge events have become an unfortunate reality of the modern landscape of Walt Disney World. Even though attendance levels during the first half of the year are likely going to be a little soft, there is undoubtedly still a push from upper management to keep revenue high, which is why these upcharge experences are so important

Though Disney has already announced a brand-new eye-wateringly expensive new upcharge experience, tweaks and changes are also being made to existing add-on experiences as well. From a pair of changes coming to the Early Morning Magic events at Disney's Hollywood Studios and the Magic Kingdom to a new annual passholder discount that is now available for a lesser-known upcharge experience, here are all the changes happening now that you need to know about 

1. Early Morning Magic extended at the Magic Kingdom

Early Morning Magic will be continue to be available  the Magic Kingdom this year, with this upcharge experience now able to be booked for select dates through August 8th. This upcharge experience allows guests to enter the Magic Kingdom before rope drop to have breakfast and experience Fantasyland before the park opens, with attractions like Princess Fairytale Hall, “it’s a small world”, Mad Tea Party, Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Peter Pan's Flight and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh available for guests to experience, along with a buffet breakfast at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe, where cheese and cured meats, scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, pancakes and more will be served.

Disney Early Morning Magic takes place from 7:45am to 10am on select Sundays and Tuesdays and costs $79 per adult and $69 per child (tax not included). Regular theme park admission is also required for this upcharge experience.

And speaking of Early Morning Magic, the Disney's Hollywood Studios version of this event (which offers pre-opening access to Toy Story Land) has seen a small change this month, with the breakfast location moving to the Backlot Express quick service restaurant. The event menu, consisting of a continental breakfast buffet and the choice of a main dish and will remain the same and continue to be available from the beginning of the event until 10:00 AM.
