    We are driving to Magic kingdom in the morning for a one day visit and will need to park and make our way to the ticket booth to get out tickets we bought online. How early should we plan to get there if we want to be in the park by 9am

    Hello Jennifer!  Your visit to Magic Kingdom Park is just hours away!

    Although Magic Kingdom Park is scheduled to open at 9:00 am tomorrow, all Guests may enter the park gates beginning about an hour prior to park opening, in order to make their way up Main Street, U.S.A. to enjoy "Let the Magic Begin", the welcome show that takes place in front of Cinderella Castle.  Guests are welcome to stop for photos, browse the shops for that perfect pair of Mickey ears, or pick up their favorite morning beverage and a snack at Main Street Bakery.

    Since you'll need to allow time to park your vehicle, go through security screening and take the ferry or monorail to the front of the park, I would plan to arrive at the parking lot about an hour prior to the time you would like to be in the park.  It shouldn't take more than a few minutes to pick up your tickets at the window.

    I hope that helps!  Enjoy your day tomorrow!
