Mom With Kids After Run

    We spent our honeymoon in Disney and are now taking our 1 year old daughter back for Easter. We are early risers and every time we were at Magic Kingdom, we saw a family ride on the train at rope drop. Just dreaming, but how does that family get picked??

    Hi, Mandy! Congratulations on your daughter's Walt Disney World trip!  May it be the first of many! While it is possible to be selected for some great honors (like being in opening ceremonies or parades), it'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 in October 2010. 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 way to request or guarantee it. 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!
