    Our family will be arriving in a couple of weeks(9-16-11) for an 8 night stay at The Polynesian! I would love for us to be one of the families that are included in the park opening ceremonies every morning at each park. How can we be chosen to do this?

    Hi Cloys,

    You are not alone, I too would love for my family to be chosen to be a part of the Magic Kingdom opening ceremony!

    As far as I am aware, there is no formula behind it, a family is simply selected by a Cast Member each morning.

    Here are my top tips for being selected:-

    1/ Arrive at the Magic Kingdom as early as possible
    2/ Look enthusiastic and excited about the day ahead (shouldn't be too hard right?)
    3/ Look the part - wear your mouse ears, Disney hats and t-shirts etc..
    4/ Make conversation or do some pin trading with the Cast Members at the entrance
    5/ Wish for some good old fashioned pixie dust to be sprinkled in your direction!

    Fingers crossed that you are lucky enough to be chosen and if you are, be sure to let me know what the secret is.

    Wishing you a magical trip!
