    Hello, We are arriving to Orlando on Dec. 25 at 6:00 a.m.. I have an 8 year and a 2.7 year old kids. Since the check in in the hotel is not until 12: 00(Kissimmee), we were thinking going directly to Magic K . Later will be impossible to enter?

    Hi Diana,

    The Magic Kingdom is scheduled to open at 8:00am on Christmas Day. They are offering Extra-Magic Hours for Guests of Disney Resorts beginning at 7:00am that day. If you arrive into Orlando at 6:00am, it will take you about an hour to retrieve your luggage and get to your hotel. You mentioned a 12:00 check-in time in Kissimmee, so I'm assuming you are not staying directly on Disney property. If that is the case, then I would just plan on getting your luggage, maybe grabbing a quick breakfast at the airport, then heading over towards the Magic Kingdom. This way, you can be parked and at the front gates when they open at 8:00. Christmas Day tends to be very busy in the Parks, so I wouldn't recommend waiting until afternoon to enter.

    Hope this helps and that you have a wonderful vacation,
