    If we want to arrive for rope drop, what time should we be at magic kingdom?

    Hi, Meredith! 

    Welcome back! We're so happy you've continued to trust us with your vacation planning questions. 

    Let the Magic Begin Welcome show is Magic Kingdom's newest way of starting another magical day for all its guests. This new version of "rope drop" begins daily at 8:55am and takes place on the Forecourt Castle Stage in front of Cinderella Castle. 

    Guests are now allowed to enter Main Street U.S.A and the castle hub area at 8:00am; I can't think of a better way to start the day than grabbing a cup of coffee from the Main Street Bakery and enjoying this area of the park before Mickey and the gang usher in another wonderful day. With this area of the park opening early, I'd plan on arriving by 7:45am so you're able to enter Main Street right at 8:00am. 

    I hope this is helpful as you continue to plan your vacation, Meredith! Please let me know if you should have any additional questions.
