    What time is the "grand arrival" of the characters at the train station at Magic Kingdom?

    Hello Chad!

    The Opening Ceremony at Magic Kingdom Park is my favorite show in all of Walt Disney World.  We make sure we're at the Magic Kingdom nice and early just to see it on every one of our trips.  My (almost) two year old already knows the words! Maybe it's because I sing them "Good Morning, Good Morning" every day?

    The Opening Ceremony, which finishes with the arrival of Mickey's friends on the Walt Disney World Railroad Steam Train, takes place approximately ten to fifteen minutes prior to park opening.  We tend to arrive at the park at least 30-45 minutes prior to opening so we can get through the bag check, enter the through the gate and grab a spot for the show.  The best viewing for the show is right in the center area after you go through the gates.  

    On mornings where there is an Extra Magic Hour, the Opening Ceremony show will be performed prior to the Extra Magic Hours opening and not at general opening time.

    Thanks for coming to see us, Chad!  Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    Have a magical day,
    Ashley
