    How early before magic kingdom officially opens can you go to main street

    Hi Forrest, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    As you have likely heard, new park opening procedures were implemented at Magic Kingdom Park earlier this year. As a result, Guests are now able to start their day with a leisurely stroll up Main Street, U.S.A. approximately one hour prior to official park opening time. During this time, many shops and food establishments will be open for your convenience, with a number of places serving breakfast, including the Main Street Bakery, Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, and Casey's Corner.  I am already envisioning "walking right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A." while enjoying a delicious breakfast sandwich and Starbucks latte from the Main Street Bakery, listening to those classic old-time tunes, and just soaking up the atmosphere.

    After you have enjoyed all of the sights, sounds and offerings along Main Street, U.S.A. you will want to make your way down to the Castle Forecourt Stage where the new Let the Magic Begin opening ceremonies take place. The show will kick off each morning approximately 5 minutes before park opening time, with Mickey and the gang taking to the stage to officially open the Park for the day. 

    I hope you enjoy this new way to kick off your day at Magic Kingdom Park each morning. Wishing you a most wonderful upcoming vacation at the place where the Magic is Endless!
