Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Does the rope drop (welcome show), happen before regular opening time, or before extra magic hours at the Magic Kingdom?
- - Asked by Nicole from Ontario on 10/22/2013
- Hi Nicole!
The Magic Kingdom Opening Ceremony is a favorite for my son and I because it is so magical to watch Mickey Mouse open up the Magic Kingdom! The Magic Kingdom Opening Ceremony happens every day about 10 to 15 minutes before the park is scheduled to open, even on a day that the Magic Kingdom has Morning Extra Magic Hours. The best place that I have found to watch this incredible Opening Ceremony is directly in front of the Walt Disney World Railroad Station. I would recommend that you be at the Magic Kingdom gates 30 minutes before the park is scheduled to open so that you get through the bag check to get a great spot for the Magic Kingdom Opening Ceremony.
I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!
