    My family is staying at Port Orleans Riverside in January. We have only 1 day at Magic Kingdom & want to make the most of it. Can we pre-book a transfer to the Park, or just line up somewhere very early? We'd like to be at the Park for rope-drop.

    Hi Meredith,

    How exciting that in just a few weeks you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort, right after the start of the New Year!

    Magic Kingdom Park allows Guests to enter the Theme Park up to one hour before opening. You will have an opportunity to walk down Main Street towards Cinderella Castle, and then a few minutes before opening, Mickey and friends will welcome all Guests in Let the Magic Begin.

    Resort Transportation should be available as early as 7:00 a.m. in order to help Guests with early dining reservations. You should consult with the Concierge Desk the day before to verify the time buses will start running. You may choose to use a taxi cab or Uber, but note that you will be dropped off at the Transportation and Ticket Center. Plan accordingly as you will still need time to make it to the front of the Park via the Resort Monorail or Ferry Boat.

    One last tip: be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app to quickly make or change your FastPass+ selections. See you real soon!
