    Hi, on early magic days (magic kingdom opening at 8) what time will main street usa be open? Will this be 7? Thanks Craig

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Craig! You are right on! As a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest, you are in for early fun on Extra Magic Hour mornings at Magic Kingdom.

    When my family stayed at Disney’s Contemporary Resort Hotel last summer, we marked our calendar for the Extra Magic Hour Days at Magic Kingdom so we could load up our stroller for two and hit the pathway. When Magic Kingdom opened at 8am for Extra Magic Hours, we could access Main Street, U.S.A. as early as 7am to browse the Emporium, smell the amazing popcorn beginning to cook and ready ourselves for the welcome show, Let The Magic Begin. That presentation will begin about 10 minutes before park opening, and following that, you’ll be lead through the park to various lands as they open. Be sure to keep your party together as Cast Members scan MagicBands to double check your guest resort status before you enter. It’s easy to lose a little one in the shuffle.

    Remember to schedule your 3 FastPass+ advance reservations for the park opening so you can pack more fun into your day. My family loves to ride Peter Pan, and the line can sometimes be long! If I can assist you further for your upcoming vacation, please let me know. You’ve got a friend in me! ~ Lindsey P.
