    We have been to the Magic Kingdom before for the "Grand Opening" of the park in the morning and am wondering how do you become the family that rides into the grand opening with the characters to help open the park?

    Hi, Missy!  It is possible to be in the opening ceremonies and parades!  What's not possible is to plan being in them.   My family and I were lucky enough to be asked to be in Mickey's Jammin' Jungle parade last October.  We rode in Mickey's vehicle and were so excited to see everyone's faces light up as Mickey went by them.  It happened because we were in the right place at the right time (my kids were pin trading with the Cast Member that picked us) with the right number of people.  It's random.  There's no sign-up, waiting list, or Cast Member to contact.  It's just a big dose of pixie dust for the lucky ones that are chosen!  Have a Magical vacation!
