    How early can you line up to meet Anna and Elsa at Magic Kingdom either inside or outside of the park?

    Hi David,

    Anna & Elsa begin greeting guests when the Magic Kingdom opens. Park opening times vary. Usually the MagicKingdom opens at 9:00am, but there are instances when it will open at 8:00, 7:00, or even earlier. You should check the Park Hours on DisneyWorld.com to see what will be happening during your visit. The greeting line for Anna & Elsa at Princess Fairytale Hall will start to form as soon as guests are allowed entrance into the park. 

    There are no specific attraction queues outside the parks. Depending on the time of year, guests typically begin arriving at the MagicKingdom about an hour before the park first opens. Many of those guests will be eager to get an early start for attractions other than Anna & Elsa. For example, when I was at the MK last week, most guests who arrived super early wanted to be first in line for the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. 

    If you want to be sure to have a short wait for Anna & Elsa, I suggest arriving at the Magic Kingdom entrance gates at least 45 minutes prior to park opening time. This will put you near the front of the group of guests waiting to enter. When they let you in, proceed directly to Anna & Elsa. There will be cast members there to direct you to the best route. You should have a reasonable wait time if you're one of the first guests in line. 

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
