    Just curious, how are families chosen to help Mickey and friends open up Magic Kingdom in the mornings?

    Hi Kellie,

    The morning show at the Magic Kingdom is wonderful and such a great way to start off your day.  

    Unfortunately, only one family is chosen per day to open the park with Mickey and his friends.  The only way to increase your odds of being chosen is to show up early, but being the first family there does not guarantee your will be chosen.

    Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom also have opening ceremonies where a family is chosen to open the park. 

    Have a great vacation - Michelle
