    With the addition of metal detectors, how long should one leave from leaving a disney hotel to get to the rope drop at magic kingdom?

    Hi Katie,

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel. You are so right! The best way to do any Disney park is by arriving early. I suggest that you leave your Disney resort with eighty minutes in advance. That is a safe amount of time and some extra counted too, for some unpredictable inconvenient. Schedule all your FastPass+ and after use all of them, try to obtain some more.

    Have a magical vacation!
