    We have an ADR for Crystal Palace at 9:25 on a morning when MK opens at 9. When does the opening ceremony start? We are hoping to see that before heading to Crystal Palace. Do you think the timing will work out. Thank you.


    On our most recent trip the "rope drop" opening ceremony at the Train Station began around 8:45 a.m. You should have plenty of time to move along Main Street to the Crystal Palace if you don't dilly dally.

    The opening ceremony with Mickey and the entire gang was one of my most favorite parts of my trip last year. If you can get to through the bag check area and even through the ticket aisles and move to the center in front of the "lawn", you'll have a better view. To do this, I'd recommend getting to Magic Kingdom at 8:15 a.m.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
