Pixar Pier did it as well but I suppose thats not a single ride.
I stand corrected. Forgot about PP.

The supposition was that the preview night upcharge was going to become the new normal, but it didn't for any new ride after these two events.

I mean they sort of did it with Star Wars Land with the whole "The only way to guarantee entry into the land is with a hotel reservation" bit they tried to pull for months.

Either way I can't fully fault Disney, they have this huge AP market that dont mind cuts, reservations, and price increases. People buy into it so they don't need to incentivize anymore.

Some excerpts from an OCR article highlighting the renovation of the Magic Key Terrace -

"A hacienda hideaway that started life as a wine country restaurant high above Disney California Adventure will soon be transformed into a Club 33-style hangout where Disneyland Magic Key passholders can relax and reenergize after a long day at the Anaheim theme park.

Walt Disney Imagineering and Disneyland crews began work Monday, Jan. 24 on a renovation of the Magic Key Terrace at Disney California Adventure that is expected to be completed in late spring.

Magic Key Terrace will remain open throughout the renovation with sections closed and capacity reduced on occasion during the project.

The renovated Magic Key Terrace will serve as a hidden respite for annual passholders much like the private, members-only Club 33 at Disneyland and 1901 Lounge at Disney California Adventure.

“When we started our Magic Key program, the park decided that it would be a really great thing to have a location for them that they could call their own, kind of like Club 33 has their own location,” Walt Disney Imagineering’s Kim Irvine said. “Now the Magic Key members have the same thing which is really wonderful.”

While the renovated Magic Key Terrace won’t offer the same elevated level of service and privileges as Club 33, the passholder lounge will be a hidden, private, exclusive, members-only, second-story hangout just like the famed spot above New Orleans Square."

"The Magic Key Terrace renovation will add new furniture, lighting fixtures, draperies, tile work, stained glass and murals inspired by a pair of adorable animal mascots.

”We wanted to make sure it was a very special place for Magic Key members,” Irvine said during an online video interview. “We spent a lot of time on the detail, mood, environment and energy of the place.”

The passholder bar and eatery will expand from the terrace on the second floor of the Golden Vine Winery into the former dining room of the Vineyard Room restaurant once run by the Robert Mondavi Winery when DCA opened in February 2001."

"Imagineering created a new backstory for the Magic Key Terrace as a beautiful hacienda recently purchased by a young couple that wants to keep the charm of the old place while adding some comfortable contemporary touches.

The redesign will keep the beige adobe plaster walls and hacienda architectural styling while adding a contemporary splash of saturated blues, turquoises and greens.

Climbing vines and banana trees will surround a gurgling wall fountain. Floor-to-ceiling drapes will help soften the sound in the covered lounge area. Wrought iron lighting fixtures will brighten the space. Palm trees in tall vases will serve as accents."

"The covered lounge and uncovered terrace will have animal mascots that serve as design inspiration for each space. A proud peacock will serve as the mascot for the covered lounge while a fan-favorite cat will represent the uncovered terrace. Imagineering has had custom Mexican tile made with peacock and cat designs that will line the columns in each room interspersed with other accent tiles.

The covered lounge will have teak high-top tables along the arched windows for watching parades, nighttime spectaculars and the world pass by. Stained-glass windows with the peacock motif will replace dark brown shutters that were added to help reduce a regular breeze that tended to blow napkins off of the tables.

The uncovered terrace will have lower lounge chairs and coffee tables made of teak wood with furniture pads in the blue, turquoise and green color palette. The space is being designed as a “super comfortable” hangout for keyholders.

“It’s very much meant for sitting and chatting about your day, sharing photos and really enjoying the space and not feeling rushed,” Irvine said."

Why? Why do we need stories for everything.

None of Walt's attractions, lands, or restaraunt have unnecessary back story.

Club 33 has no backstory.

A couple purchased the golden vine winery 2nd floor in California Adventure? I don't understand that at all.

The park isnt even themed well
enough to support the idea of a couple buying a winery next to a pier, a cartoon route 66, and a super hero inspired office park.

Yeah I’m not sure why they feel a backstory is necessary for everything. Not every fart needs a backstory. But the restaurant actually does look nice in the concept art and sounds like it ll be a nice place to grab a meal/ drink or watch World of Color.

Last time I went here was when it was the Legacy Passholder Terrace, and it was quite nice. It's a lovely quiet spot that overlooks the main walkway of the park. Great place to have a glass of wine and take a break; I think the changes will definitely add to the respite feeling.

Except for the line of Magic Key holders stretching to the front gates waiting to relax on cheap walmart outdoor furniture. How are they going to kick passholders out and keep the place from turning into a flop house?

How is Disney going to make money out of that?

Haha yeah I thought about that. Except it won’t be long lines it will probably just be super hard to snag a reservation - like Blue Bayou

As soon as I read the announcement my first thought was why do we need a backstory for the lounge, other than that it actually looks and sounds like a nice place to relax. Sure it's a theme park so there should be theming but that doesn't need to involve a backstory. Just say it's a lounge themed to whatever it's themed to, no need to come up with a fake story of a family purchasing an area in DCA for a lounge. Just say there's a lounge there themed to whatever theme it is. This should be an overall net positive for Key Holders hopefully.

Lol, it's obvious from comments on here that the long day passholders spend at DCA is about 1 pm when park hopping opens up due to reservation limits.

"Walt went to the pier in 1952 as an adult and said his themepark would never be a pier themepark with rollercoasters. One day in 1999 4 business associates from Pixar (TM) imagined what a pier would look like in the Disneyland parking lot. The magical creators put their idea into a Gateway 2000 computer when all of the sudden the idea sprang to life!

A young jewish couple bought the park 5 years later. "
