You don’t look at another perspective. I gave legitimate reasons as to why Disney shouldn’t be “different” in this scenario. It’s impossible not to acknowledge what the trends of entertainment and travel have become. It’s called reality.
If reality is considered a rabbit hole, then I’ll gladly choose to live in it.
I get it , some of you like to complain and not have any facts brought into a scenario.
Lesson learned, carry on with the complaints..
There’s no incentive for Disney to do what you’re saying.
They know that not everyone is going to pay for an extra early morning hour, they don’t want them to. If everyone did it then it would be the same thing as an EMH, and no one would pay for it.
Not to mention the fact that these events sell out quickly, so obviously there’s a limited number available.
The “Magic” is being in an empty Fantasyland or Toy Story Land. That’s the whole purpose of it, and why it’s a sell out.
Think of another perspective though..
A lot of people travel to more than Disney. Everywhere they go provides them with options to customize. Gives them choices for more exclusive events. These people are busy at their home lives and look for something to really make good use of time and share some special moments with their family while on vacation.
Now, those people are looking at a Disney vacation, they don’t see any options..
In this scenario it doesn’t benefit Disney to be “different”. It definitely doesn’t benefit the consumer who’s looking for that extra customization.
Not trying to be rude, but this post has been cracking me up for the last half hour.....I'm picturing the below scenario as the scenario the brain child who invented upsells used to get this one green lit....
I'm picturing a nice young couple who travels the globe. They are perusing through a high end travel magazine while on their beach front mansion. Husband asks wife, "whats this Disney place I've seen advertised in here? Let's do some research to see if we want to visit!" Wife agrees, and they go to the interwebs for their research. On the home page, they keep searching "customizable options". They don't see any, so they say, "forget that weird place with no customizable options to make our vacation special for our family! To the Alps we go as they have a plethora of customized offerings!" End scene.....
Given the above scenario, I see the errors in my thinking. Customized options are the only reason people go. If there weren't any options like there are in Bora Bora, then the whole place would go back to swamp land. Thank the space gods they don't listen to me. Really dodged a bullet there. Those facts really highlight how dumb we all are and how smart WDW is.
This post just made me laugh. You do you. And for the record I absolutely "get" what you're saying. I understand your perspective. We just disagree. It has nothing to do with "facts".
Setting the bar for others + Being a leader = "Yesterday's" Disney = No longer applicable because...
Regressing to the mean + Following industry trends = "Today's" Disney = "Rational thoughts". Gotcha.
It's almost $100 for 75 minutes. If you factor in the real (sane) cost of a danish and some avocado toast, that's still around $30 a ride. Add to that the fact that breakfast is going to be served in a different part of the park, so you'll need to leave TSL to get to it. Will people pay for it? Yup. Is it the dumbest upcharge Disney has come up with so far? I'd say it's in the running.So, have we decided whether or not we like this yet?

They are thinking the rubes will pay. And you know what, they probably will.
I'm having trouble trying to define who these events are for. I'm wondering if we as the frequent customer should assign a word to it like "extravagant" or something to mean this is for upper class or people on social media with extreme FOMO (fear of missing out). Something to say, hey here is some new offerings, but be aware that this isn't something we as Disney experts recommend you ever doing.
Is it really breakfast without mickey waffles?
That menu is a bit odd for breakfast
