    I’m planning to buy EMM tickets if they are released for my trip dates, but currently only have a room-only reservation. Do I need to buy my theme park tickets prior to being able to buy the EMM tickets online?

    Hi there, Heather! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for allowing us to help you with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation questions!

    I am a huge fan of all the special events outside of normal operating hours and I cannot recommend them enough! As a self-proclaimed Disney nerd, I jump at any opportunity that provides me with a unique experience in the parks and Disney Early Morning Magic is a great example of that. The two experiences available, Disney Early Morning Magic - Fantasyland and Disney Early Morning Magic - Toy Story Land, offer different but equally engaging mornings of excitement! Both give Guests access to their respective theme parks before opening to the general public and, if that wasn’t enough, they also provide a first-class breakfast for you to fill up on before embarking on the rest of your adventures for the day! Early access to attractions and a delicious meal? Count me in! 

    Theme park admission is required for these events but is not initially obligatory when reserving your admission. The way in which Disney Early Morning Magic events are processed online is actually more similar to a dining reservation than actual theme park special event admission. So this would allow you to make your reservation prior to purchasing tickets to the particular theme park. This is particularly helpful when trying to plan your days in advance prior to purchasing tickets for specific theme parks! 

    Have fun continuing to plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Just let us know if we can help you in planning any other portions of your trip!
