Attention early birds! Disney’s Magic Kingdom has something just for you! If you and your family are up before the sun and heading to the Magic Kingdom before it opens, you won’t have to wait at the turnstiles until the park officially opens. At 8 am, you and your family can actually enter the park via Main Street USA, and be inside before the park opens for the day. PhotoPass is available, so you can take you iconic family picture in front of
the castle photo without a million people walking in front of the camera or bumping you out of the way. This early entry is great for photographers, as it is a unique opportunity to see Walt Disney World in it’s quiet and peaceful
times, before it becomes magical, organized, chaos.
Being able to enter the park at 8:00 also gives you a chance to eat breakfast at Casey’s Corner, where you can get muffins, bagels, and even a hash brown dog. Grab a cup of coffee at Starbucks and get a little bit of shopping done before your day even starts.
Although you’ll be in the park at 8, attractions open at 9 and all of the lands are roped off until the park officially opens. If being the first one into FantasyLand or TomorrowLand is important, you may want to bypass the breakfast and the shopping head right there. These two lands are the most popular, and guests line up right outside of the entrance to both lands in an effort to get in right away.
At 8:55, a magical show entitled “Let The Magic Begin” takes place in front of Cinderella’s Castle on the stage. This five-minute musical show features Mickey, Pluto, all of the Disney princesses, Mary Poppins and more. At the end of the show, the official “rope drop” happens at each land and guests make their way to the attractions.
If you plan to take advantage of Magic Kingdom’s early entry, snap a picture of your family on Main Street and send it to us! We may feature it on our Facebook prize and send you a little thank you gift!
