    How early does the parking lot at Magic Kingdom open?

    Hi Alison! Welcome to planDisney!

    Can you believe that your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is almost here?! Your countdown will be hitting zero before you know it and you’ll be off to the Most Magical Place on Earth. Yay!

    I vacationed at my happy place just a couple of weeks ago, and while my family usually uses Walt Disney World complimentary transportation from our Disney Resorts Collection hotel, we decided to use a ride-sharing service a couple of the days we visited on this trip. At each of the theme parks we visited, the entrances to the parking lots opened around 45 minutes (one a few minutes earlier) before the theme park's official opening time.

    Since you will be heading to Magic Kingdom Park early, I recommend heading to the most popular attractions first, then refueling with a stop at either Gaston's Tavern for a Warm Cinnamon Roll (ask for extra icing!) or Sleepy Hollow for a Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich with Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread. Both are completely drool-worthy and make it hard for me to choose just one!

    I hope this helps you plan your day at Magic Kingdom Park, Alison! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
