    We want to arrive at Magic Kingdom when the park opens. How much in advance do we need to arrive at the parking lot in order to be at the park doors when it opens. Thank you for your help.

    Hello Carol!

    The Disney transportation system begins one hour prior to park opening. So you have at least that long to make it to the park gate to see the opening ceremonies! Last year I had to be a Magic Kingdom two hours prior to the park opening for a class and the parking was available for use. You shouldn't have a problem getting to park for the gate ceremony even an hour and a half early. I hope you and your family have a Magical Time at the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have more questions, we are always here to help! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel!
