If by this you mean Early Morning Magic (EMM) then yes. That has always been an upcharge event. Many people keep talking about/comparing to Extra Magic Hours (EMH) which were (and still are) provided at no extra charge to on property guests. In theory, EMM is much more limited in terms of guest numbers than EMH is, but also only offers a subset of rides.
Oh, okay. Thank you for clearing that up. I kept reading these posts and got more and more confused. LOL
